Photograph Usage FAQ
Can I download images to print for personal use? Yes
Can I download images to use on my web site? No
Can my web site link to your site or up to ten individual images? Yes
Is there a fee? No, this is a non-commercial gallery
Can I download images to publish in books, print media or TV? Yes
What credit should I give? Please credit "www.viewCalgary.com"
Do images have model releases or other third party approval? No
Are there usage conditions? Yes - See the usage conditions panel.
Can I download images to print for my own use? Yes, subject to the usage conditions.
How do I download images to print? Instead of clicking on a thumbnail to see the normal size image, click on the "Open" button beside the thumbnail. This opens a larger version of the file in the full window. Drag the image to your file browser, or use your Web browser's "Save Picture As..." feature to save images to your data storage device.
Do you provide prints or slides? No. We encourage you to make prints for personal use, but we do not have the facilities to provide prints or slides for you.
Will you provide originals? No - the web site images are all we provide.
Are the images suitable for magazines? Possibly. Media professionals who are considering the photographs for printing should note that the images may not be suitable for some print applications.
The original camera images are already compressed at a 4:1 ratio in a JPEG format, and after re-sizing and editing are converted to sRGB colors and further optimized for the Internet. Also note that some images are taken at ISO 1600, and printing may accentuate the grain.
Can I print a 10" x 8" enlargement? This size enlargement might work with our larger files, but test a sample first. Printing may require changes to the resolution. Our images are saved at 72 dpi for screen viewing, but a higher dpi may be preferred for printing. Our larger images would yield a 5" x 3" postcard at just over 200 dpi.
Your printer may have software and facilities that will allow greater enlargements, but quality can fall sharply as the size increases. It may also be necessary to convert the color scheme to match your printing equipment, otherwise the print may have poor color quality. If in doubt, try just one print and check that the colors and contrast are satisfactory
Is there any way I can I print posters? Possibly. There are features in many photo editors for increasing the image file by extrapolation.
Essentially you keep enlarging the image size or resolution by ten percent increments, which allows the extrapolation logic to fill in the missing pixels more efficiently. The results vary but sometimes it is possible to create surprisingly large posters by this method. The technique requires lots of computer memory and a very fast processor.
