Ordering Images

You can order high-resolution scans of the images you find online by emailing us your order along with details of how the image/s are to be used. We will contact you to discuss your project and to supply you with a quote. All high-resolution images are supplied as 300dpi compressed files. These scans are suitable for most uses, but please do contact us to discuss any special requirements you may have. We can deliver our high-resolution scans by either email, CD or via our FTP site.

Offline availability

The Picture Library also holds thousands of black and white copy prints and colour transparencies from the Society’s collections that are not yet accessible online. As only a relatively small proportion of our collection is accessible online, we do offer a picture research service to assist in finding the right images to fulfill your brief. We also encourage you to visit us yourself to explore our collection. Please feel free to contact us to discuss your requirements or to arrange an appointment.

Scanning and photography

The results of your research may require items in the collections to be scanned or photographed. All scanning and photography is subject to the condition of the original material and payment of the appropriate costs. Please allow 7 to10 working days from point of order to the delivery of the images.
