Guidance on Image Sizes
The photos on this site have been taken over a number of years and so there is quite a range of sizes. In time I hope to be able to replace the smaller files, but some such as the aerial shots, will sadly be impossible to replicate.
Please ensure that the photo you like will be large enough for your needs:
FULL SIZE IMAGE
The exact size of every full size image is shown towards the bottom of the descriptive text.
- The quoted dimensions refer to printing at 300 dpi (dots per inch) which will produce a high resolution picture for professional use.
- For good home printing it would be perfectly acceptable to multiply those dimensions by 1.5.
- For a canvas print where fine detail is not essential, the dimensions could be multiplied up to three times.
