IF YOU INTEND TO
MAKE PRINTS FOR SALE don't be lured into buying image collections where a large
quantity is trumpeted in the headline. You can't beat the law of physics
and fit a quart into a pint pot! It can be very expensive to ignore copyright
laws also, as many amateur fly by night on-line sellers commonly do. Here are a few
1. The larger the quantity the less
you will get (in quality). Don't be lured into buying large numbers of
low quality, tiny size images - they are simply unprintable. Thousands
of images on a CD only means wasted money!
2. Some image collections offered for sale, such as branded advertising
posters, may be still under copyright protection. If an unknown seller's
description encourages you to start a business selling such prints be wary - ask.
3. Are the antique images enhanced for printing or otherwise restored?
This task can mean a great deal of work.
4. Make sure the supplied images are both a suitable size physically for
making prints and well over the basic 72psi often supplied. Image pixels
are often quoted as a physical dimension but this can be misleading for
beginners if they need to compress them themselves to achieve a high
enough resolution/physical size ratio for saleable prints (assuming the
supplied quality is high enough to begin with anyway).
Be careful out there
- or better still order from Timecamera!
