High Resolution Digital Images (HRDI)
- HRDIs are high quality and prepared to ICC (International Colour Consortium) standards.
- The skill and time to get the images to this level of quality is extensive.
- The final print result will depend on the skills of the professional photographer, monitor, software, printer, printer ink and print media. For accurate colour reproduction ALL of these steps need to be calibrated and profiled.
- Once the HRDI is removed from Loose Canon Images , we take no responsibility for the final appearance of reproduced image.
- HRDI files are suitable for printing to any size, depending on the software, printing device and print media used.
Low Resolution Digital Images (LRDI)
- LRDIs are medium quality images that have been density and colour corrected to ICC (International Colour Consortium) standards.
- Loose Canon Images will make available LRDI’s generally for the purpose of PC viewing, social media sites and email.
- LRDIs will not reproduce professional quality prints
Purchasing the digital images includes the following licensing provisions:
- A ‘usage license’ is provided with the digital files.
- The client is provided with a license to print, duplicate, distribute and share the images for domestic purposes only.
- No commercial usage is provided, i.e. advertising, commercial media, magazine, newspaper, commercial website, brochure or any publication, unless permission is obtained from Loose Canon Images.
- The final print/reproduction/result of the image will depend on the operator, monitor, software, printer, printer ink, and print media. For accurate colour reproduction, ALL of these steps need to be calibrated and profiled.
- Consequently, no responsibility or liability is taken for the final appearance or result of reproducing the image files.
- Colour management is the process of ensuring colours are true and consistent, from capture, to edit to final print.
- Every device displays colours differently. Even monitors of the exact same brand, model and age will have slight differences. This is unlikely to impact on the average office user but will have a huge impact on the work of a photographer or creative professional that needs to be able to trust what is displayed on the monitor.
- In colour management the colour displaying characteristics of each device are mapped to an ICC profile, the colour fingerprint of the device. When the operating system of the computer reads this ICC profile it knows exactly how the device produces colours and can compensate for colour cast and other variances so the displayed colours are exactly as they should be, – 100% correct and true to the information stored in the image file.
- If work is passed on in the middle of the process (e.g. off site printing), colour management is even more important since others have no way of knowing how it looked on your screen, unless it is colour calibrated.
- Colour Management is the only way to avoid costly mistakes and time-consuming reprints.
