We want the digital photos ! :-)

Recommended Posts

It'll probably be a couple of weeks. Just think how many they have to upload, and they're probably still trying to recover from the weekend!

I can't wait to post it on facebook ! :P

 

If you don't have a scanner and don't want to wait some weeks now, you can take a picture of the picture in the mean time ;)

When the jpegs do become available I want to buy a copy of my clock photo with Christopher Lloyd and have it printed on a canvas but the copy I collected has Showmasters logo on it. Will this be removed for jpegs as many photo developers may refuse to believe I have copyright if logo is still there?

We get scanned copies of our photos as well?!

 

Is that for everyone?

Yes but you have to pay £5 for each picture.

Charging in this day and age 5 pounds per picture extra just for a copy of a digital file which has already been made and paid for by you when the shot was taken is slightly ridiculous....That said, I don't know of another organiser actually offering digital copies, so I guess for that SM deserves an applause...Yet my prints are going under the scanner I bought just for this purpose, just like with prints from other events. I've earned the purchase price of that scanner back tenfold with these kinds of prices already.

I guess the thing is I have been given digital photis from other companies of me and a guest and the quality was dire haha Small tiny shrunken images. Basically worthless in my eyes. Ok for facebook at best.

 

Showmasters at least seem to give you full resolution Jpegs, that is pretty great. For a fiver maybe not for most, but they couldnt supply the RAW file as they are enormous and would delistate the servers uploading them haha

I got 11 photos, but for another 5 Pounds, I would only be willing to buy the "bigger" stars like MJF, Chris Lloyd and Lea Thompson. For all others, my scans will do. I'm not willing to spend another 55 Pounds...

I know another organuser whom I volunteer for and they offer digital copies and also charge £5!

I just don't get how the price makes sense. I'm sure if they cost 5x less, more than 5x the people would buy them.

Also ridiculous, but I guess that's the price....Glad I invested in a proper photoscanner. I've saved more then what that scanner costs already by scanning my own prints instead of buying digital copies. I rather use the money saved to have more photoshoots ;)

You will be able to order as many as you wish to pay for.

 

Last years LFCC took 2 weeks to have all Jpegs ready for viewing. Smaller shows sometimes have them ready within 3/4 days. However with LFCC summer show there are 1000's to upload so it may be a whle I'm afraid

It's just crazy that you have to pay £5 for each. SM already has all the JPGs. These can be quickly uploaded with any decent connection, and hosting space is cheap nowadays. Bandwith shouldn't be a concern since most photos will only be download once. So SM has virtually no expenses, but we already paid as much as £95 per photo.

All mine are already scanned so I'm not buying my own pictures again... that said I do always like to have a look through them, everyone always looks great.

They won't disappear after 2 weeks if that's what you are worried about.
