for the best results.
A WORD ABOUT DPI
- One of the most commonly asked questions is how
many dpi or what resolution do these images have, and the answer is a) each image is
entirely different as we take the time to make it matter instead of
adopting the common blanket approach, and b) as many as is needed to maintain the quality of the
original source material. A common misconception is that a high dpi also
equals a high quality picture. Unfortunately that is not the case. A poor quality antique original will
remain just that, no matter how high the dpi of the copy is.
We could easily take the same image and turn it into 150dpi file or
1200dpi with just the click of a button (hence some
professionals' fixation with 300dpi as a 'standard' is
meaningless if no other factors are considered) . The only
difference would be an unnecessarily high file size in the latter case
while the physical prints from both would look just the same.
What is important is restoration and
optimisation coupled with good resolution - plus a good physical print size
(as is supplied throughout) without quality fall-off.
The latter all backed up by test marketing for actual saleability and
then offered at a bargain price. All of our collections are
suitable for normal A4 size printers and the results have
been sales-tested, while several collections are also
suitable for large format printers too if you happen to own
one (see individual descriptions). For more on the subject
of print size see our
Be wary of misleading dpi claims
fooled by misleadingly high dpi claims for small or poor quality images. The fact
is, the images will still be poor - no matter how high the
dpi is - if the original is poor to begin with as dpi
doesn't improve quality it simply makes the original's
shortfalls plainer to see. Also (becoming increasingly common) high dpi
claims where the images turn out to be
only a couple of square
inches physically! Any image can be
exponentially increased in dpi the more it is reduced in size and
the unscrupulous take advantage of that fact to mislead -
For business purposes
also avoid amateur quantity-based compilations of what
invariably turns out to be low quality, unusable
small images with associated copyright issues - the more on the
disk, the less they're actually worth having as a disc only has a
certain capacity to hold good quality images. If it has
thousands of pictures as sometimes trumpeted they can only
be a few K each and of no practical use. There's a lot of
nonsense talked, sometimes deliberately misleading, so be very careful
when buying from amateur sellers and don't fall into the dpi
nonsense trap. Better still avoid all the misdirection by
only buying from the leading supplier - Timecamera!
ALL the compilations go the extra mile. Included
Panorama type image
for example are up to three separate variations of each multi megabyte Master
File image, depending on the size of the original. Two are for you to print from
as you choose: Generally one is usually about 22 inches wide, the
other where included is up to 30 inches or more depending on the proportions of the archived original.
The former is ideal for Epson
panoramic or roll papers and their Inkjet Printers or similar. It has high resolution. The larger is ideal for Roll Papers, large format home
printers, printing presses or quality home printers with banner capability. Either can
also easily be published instead on any photo quality home
printer in joinable flush fitting sections - just like the archived
Panoramas look great framed.
There are many other options too,
including enlarging/reducing the supplied files as desired to fit any printer
output size. Also
included as a free bonus is a Multi-Megabyte file of the original un-restored image

than the Originals
All our image restorations make impressive
talking pieces. With modern printers it is now difficult to tell real from repro
in this digital age, hence the growing popularity of digital cameras.
Plus our restorations
actually look better and larger than the antique originals in many cases and at the sizes
supplied these collectables are at their Best Available Resolutions.
The DPI rates vary widely depending on the vintage original and may be
anything up to 300dpi or so where beneficial, although the rate may
often be more than the antique original itself.
Rest assured, we have done our best to offer high resolutions
and often, where the pictures we supply have larger dimensions than the
originals, you may also of course reduce them while maintaining file
sizes for a higher resolution (if desired).
in mind that extensive test marketing has been carried out selling the
Prints with great success on a retail basis before offering them to
dealers in compilations.

Test It Yourself
DIGITALLY printed photographs are now practically
indistinguishable from the 'real' thing using
today's Photo Quality Printers - now with our enhancements digital
vintage photos can be even
It's a perfectly logical step forward to utilise photo
printers for the making of reproduction collectible and
antique prints and photos which, again can be an
improvement on traditional methods such as letterpress
printing with it's
tell-tale dot pattern or micro cross hatching.
Especially when the images have also been uniquely
restored and enhanced by Timecamera for digital print making.
Can you see a difference?
Take one of
our digitally-enhanced photos or lithograph
Master Images from any collection, print it on our
quality stock using a standard photo capable printer.
Then take a
good magnifying glass and try and tell the
difference between a real lithograph, the digitally
printed Timecamera one and a repro made by a
traditional printing method.
Only the latter will be
obvious as a reproduction by its dot patterns.
Our enhanced images are of real and rare Prints and Photographs.
All you need is a photo quality printer to turn them once again
into real prints and photos - plus the imagination and drive to
do it. We could persuade
cynics with words, but there's no need when the proof is plain
to seen. Try it yourself, be convinced - and then get in on the
ground floor with this new and exciting, digital age business!
BEFORE you start making Cash from the

protect our own rights too. Unlike other image

painstakingly restored and enhanced for Print
making and are unique to us.

TO BUY ON
DISC OR BY
Downloads have so many
advantages over disc purchases it is difficult to know where to
begin. Yet the fact is there are a great many traditionalists who prefer a
disc they can hold in their hands, believing it is something they can fall back on as a back-up.
The truth is disc media is unreliable as it requires correct storage over a period to remain viable - away from heat,
radio sources, magnetic influences, humidity, warping, scratching
and many other factors. Too often the disc 'back-up' is found to be
unreadable after a period. Additionally, unless image files are
particularly small, most cd/dvd disc drives will struggle to read and
transfer graphics of any commercial size unless given a great deal
of time to complete the task, especially if the drive is old.
That is why we always recommend that if images are bought on
disc they immediately be transferred to a hard drive on receipt for
actual use. Also that a periodic back-up be made. It makes sense
therefore to buy your collections via download to start with. Not
only is it much cheaper, saving on both the original cost, plus shipping
and handling, but being direct to your hard drive (same day) it also
cuts out the transfer step. Ultimately it will always be a matter of
personal choice but downloads - which incidentally all have
exactly the same content as the discs - do have the edge when
all the facts are weighed up, as increasingly testified by our
actual sales ratio.
Timecamera restored image collections mostly comprise physically large Master
Images with correspondingly large file sizes. This makes our image collections
bigger compared to most others - sometimes totalling several gigabytes - hence
downloads are not 'instant' but require a short delay to set up. When your
file/s are ready for download your links will be sent usually within hours. Higher professional quality/size naturally means they may take
a little extra time to download.
The download servers are checked daily for optimum operational efficiency but it
is the customer's responsibility to ensure they have an adequate broadband
internet connection with sufficient bandwidth available for downloading large
The country photochrom collections 'Wales', 'Scotland', 'England', 'Ireland' are
available for download due to their exceptionally large size.
USB MEMORY STICKS
have now also been
introduced for most collections as a further media option. The sticks
are high capacity (minimum 8Gb) meaning they will come in very handy for
re-use after you transfer the master images to your hard drive for daily
use, which we recommend as optimum procedure whatever the chosen media.
High capacity sticks as required may be used for multiple collection
orders during free s&h promotional periods.
