We see many photographs each week and we know what we are looking for so photos do not need to be perfect! Click to view the selling process.

No flash photography

No Flash Photography

To avoid using a flash, pictures can be taken outside in the shade and the picture angled forward to reduce reflections. The flash can be disabled on most cameras. Normal digital cameras normally produce better results than camera phones.

Photographing Paintings

File Format: JPG, 1800px (w)

Please send good sized .jpg format images and keep the file size down if possible. Ideally the photo should be at least 1800 pixels wide. If you require help please do not hesitate to call the gallery on 01590 678230
