Picture viewing resolution has been reduced, but a slightly more transparent watermark applied.
Running a website such as this, it must be considered as a commercial proposition. This basically means that income must exceed expenditure to survive.
The site will therefore be set up to encourage the purchasing of photos (for a personal use only). Pictures bought for downloading do not have the watermark applied and remain at approx 250-300kb in size (suitable for screen viewing or A4 printing). Prices will remain at 40pence per photo.
Renewal fees for the site are due in April 2014 and a decision will be taken then as to how the site progresses in the future. It may be withdrawn from public viewing access.
Please note that this is not a photo sharing website operating on a free for all basis.
Unfortunately, there have been some adverse comments posted to the site about the resolution and watermarking considering it to be a "paywall". I quite like that concept.
Comments are now fully monitored and have to be approved before being published. If you cannot leave your real name and a factual e-mail address when leaving comments, then you are not a welcome visitor to the site.
