Information / tips on image processing
The antique map and print downloads in this section of my website are all direct scans taken from items I have held as stock. Generally they are of 500dpi (dots per inch) resolution, which is very detailed and adequate for giclee printing. All the images are supplied as .JPG files with zero compression.
Please note that as these are scans of antiques the originals are usually not perfect, some do show small amounts of soiling or stains. I remove or clean up the more major faults, but there can be other smaller faults visible in my downloads. This is to be expected with such images and is part of their character, those proficient with an image editor will be able to clean up the images further if needed.
2. Saving the image
The original items are no longer within copyright but my version is copyrighted and re-selling rights in Digital Form are not offered. These images can be used and re-sold in printed form, such as on book covers, or as illustrations etc. They can also be used in film and TV productions.
