Images can be supplied digitally as low resolution files for layouts or medium-high resolution for end-use. Transparencies are scanned at up to 4000 ppi, digital files at native resolution from at least six megapixel capture (or larger via interpolation). Registered users are able to download image files (where available) on ordering/payment, or image files can be sent on CD or down-the-line (by e-mail or upload to web site) and, of course, transparencies can be supplied if required, either as high-quality duplicates or originals (liability terms apply).

No charge is made for the supply and delivery of digital image files of images that are already on-line and viewable on this web site. For a deep-file search of the analogue (transparency) files charges may apply: these may include postal delivery costs; scanning charges for digital fulfilment; a search fee if no images are used from a submission of images in response to a direct picture request.
