A recent ZPE article by Adam B?low-Jacobsen presented a case for the usefulness of monospectral infra red imaging in papyrology.1 Since he compared his method of infrared digital imaging to multi-spectral imaging, the authors consider it timely to explain more clearly the multi-spectral imaging process, to dis cuss in what situations its utilization might be preferable to monospectral imaging, and to report recent image processing developments made by the Ancient Textual Imaging Group (ATIG) at Brigham Young University
