Just wanted to tell you photographers that the section for uploading high quality images, avilable for sales of posters only, is now available. Please contact me for more info on the issue.

If you go to

http://www.photobox.co.uk/quality.html

you'll see (a bit down the page) a list of minimum and recommended sizes (in pixels of longest edge) for various print sizes. If you can produce an image 3000 pixels wide, then you've got all bases covered, though I can state from experience that 2400 pixels wide also works well.

I would also suggest that you would be better off uploading a file at, say, 2000px and let Photobox handle any resizing rather than interpolate the file yourself up to 3000 px - the artifacts which you create in interpolation will be made more apparent after Photobox reprocesses the file.

Cheers,

Colin

Thanks Colin. I'll probably upload 6.3mp files.
tarq, is there a link to that page?

Hisham.

Sorry for my ignorance but I have not been as active in the forums as I used to be. How does the whole thing work these days.

Do I just check the box photo sales option and upload the 3000 x image, unprocessed.

Would be nice if someone can give me a short run down.

Thanks

Vasco,

You upload the pictures as usual, just like you always did. Once a pic is accepted and you want to offer it as a poster size print, you contact Tarq for FTP data. Then you upload the large 3000x.... file to an FTP server. The uploaded file has to be in the same format as the pic in the DB.> photo id 12345 has to have a large version that is called 12345.jpg.

For more info contact Tarq for this

Will these images be "protected" from joe-user? I don't want hi-res copies of my images floating around...

as far as I know the large versions will be stored on a seperate server, only accesible to Photobox for printing.

I tried downloading one of my own hi res pics from my file space on photobox the other day. Doesn't seem to be possible, so all anyone will be able to get is a print.

Cheers,

Colin

Just went through the upload process - pretty straight forward, and while FTPing those large files takes a little time, the A.net side of things is quick & easy ... nice work Tarq!

Once you've uploaded a file, you get an opportunity to confirm the upload or remove it. At this point a thumbnail of the upload and the existing A.net thumbnail are shown side by side - the upload thumbnail looks considerably softer. This threw me at first, so I went back and did it again double checking my sharpening process, and the thumbnail still looked soft. I guess this is due to sampling down a much larger file than the A.net size one - at least I hope that's the reason  Smile

Cheers,

Colin

Yes, the thumbnails are just for verifying the whole image, so no errors during the upload took place. They are supposed to have bad quality since they are only used for that single purpose.
