Where CD is included in package, or ordered additionally, CD will include all of the pictures provided to you as printed proofs. There is no copyright watermark accross images so you can re-print them where you wish. All of the images provided to a client on CD may be reproduced, distributed, or printed by the client without restriction and without credit or additional payment to the photographer. The photographer may also use the images for promotional or advertising purposes and retains the copyright. Photos on the CD are high resolution ( 300 dpi ) which is the most common resolution for commercial printing.
Printing from your Photo CD:
There is no guarantee, however, that prints you make yourself or have printed from these files will look exactly like the prints that are provided to you in your portrait or wedding packages. We use a professional lab and photos are printed on Kodak Endura Paper 100 year display or 200 year archival in dark cool storage. When printing on your own, Color, clarity, brightness, overall quality, will vary depending on where prints are made. These differences are due to inconsistencies in the way that different photo printers will interpret the color information in the JPG file. Low cost print houses (Walmart, Costco, Walgrens, etc) can often produce good quality prints but the color and overall quality will vary with each different printing machine and the way it is calibrated and maintained. To get the best results you should print the images with all automatic enhancement features turned off. The files are already color balanced and edited for the best appearance. If the software at the printer tries to enhance what has already been enhanced, you may get prints with inaccurate color and tone. The best advice, if you are having many prints made from your CD at a particular photo printer, is to have one or two prints made and compare them to the original prints provided by us. If you are satisfied with the prints then go ahead and get the remainder. If you are not satisfied with the results then talk with the print manager or try another location.
