SASA Digital Imaging & Presentation (DI&P) primarily provides a professional photographic and graphic design service to all SASA staff and to colleagues in the Scottish Government Agriculture and Rural Economy Directorate. The Photography Unit is small and busy but where resources allow, we are happy to extend our services to colleagues in the wider Scottish Government and occasionally to external customers.

Services available:

  • Photography (either in the studio or on location).  We specialise in botanical photography but will happily cover other subjects as required. Professional digital cameras are used as standard but the DI&P does retain the facility to provide conventional transparencies/negatives if preferred.
  • In-house scanning of both transparencies and negatives (from 35mm to 5x4inches).
  • Photo manipulation. Both members of staff are adept in the use of Adobe Photoshop CS4.
  • Graphic design and desk top publishing.
  • High quality, large format printing (max. width 44”). A variety of media types are kept in stock.
  • Encapsulation (max. width 38”).
  • Preparation of pull up displays.
  • SASA Image Bank - an archive of over 11,000 images reflecting the work of SASA and associated Scottish Government Departments*.
