Download Speeds

 

Images on this web site are generally saved in the format of about 800 pixels in jpeg at a low resolution and low quality – giving a file size of about 50KB.  This is a compromise to provide a quality image at a postcard size while retaining a reasonable download time for dial-up users.  At a 28kbps dial-up speed, images can take 10 to 15 seconds each to download.  If you are seeing a box with a small Windows logo in the top left corner, everything is OK – please be patient.

 

If you are having other problems, please contact

 

Or phone - +1-972-746-6322.

PRINTROOM

 

Why use Printroom?

Image processing services, including credit card payments, are handled on our behalf by Printroom.com.

We have chosen this service for the quality of their product and the security of their payment handling processes.

While on their site you can see images with no obligation to purchase.

You can also buy images in the form of prints and specialty products such as T-shirts and mugs.

Navigating Printroom

Images on the Printroom site are held in ‘galleries’.  These galleries are sorted by subject in 'directories'.  At the highest level, the directories are grouped by subject like:

 

  -  Travel

  -  Nature

  -  Motor

  -  Sport

 

Selecting a directory may display another directory, such as “Motor > Rallying” or a gallery such as “Motor > Rallying > SnoDrift”.

Can’t Find Anything in Printroom?

We are unable to modify the Printroom screen layout.  It has a large header area before starting to list our directories.  So, if you click through to Printroom and believe you are getting a blank, black screen, check whether you can scroll down.  (The subject matter may just be lower down the screen.) 

If you are still having problems, please email

Can’t search for an image in Printroom?

Printroom has a ‘search’ function on the home page for our site.  The function is to allow users to enter a keyword that is linked to a specific photograph.  But, due to the high volume of photographs we have on offer, we have not been able to name each individual photograph.  Hence this function is not operable within our Printroom site. 

 

To find a specific image, please search for it by subject within directories.
