Images play a key role for scholarly work in many ways - they facilitate communication and support understanding or make research results look more appealing. At the same time powerful image-editing programs have profoundly changed how image manipulations are perceived today. This book explores how scholars from different domains conceive image manipulation. The study is based on research carried out at the Interdisciplinary Laboratory Image Knowledge Gestaltung at Humboldt University Berlin. Informants from the field of biology, computer science, art history and design explain how they differentiate between appropriate and inappropriate image manipulation. Furthermore these experts report on whether guidelines or practical logics shape their work with images.
