FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

PHOTOGRAPH OR SCAN?

People often ask me what the difference between a photograph and a scan is. My photography setup produces a sharp image with no glare from the scan bed.

Large artworks can be taken in one shot with no stitching required and I can change my lighting according to what suits the artwork medium best.


Copystand provides true colour and perfectly lit high resolution photographs to represent artworks.

WHAT FILES TYPES DO YOU USE?

I can provide a variety of file types but generally provide TIFFS for print and JPEGS suitable for web.


Your high resolution images are stored using a safe backup system just in case you misplace them.

WHAT SIZES OF ARTWORKS CAN
YOU PHOTOGRAPH?

One of the beauties of Copystand is that it can photograph tiny to large artworks.

DO YOU CHARGE LESS FOR
SMALL ARTWORKS?

Generally, I charge the same for all sizes of artworks but if you have multiple small artworks, please get in touch for a quote.

WHERE ARE YOU BASED?

I am situated in Summerhall Arts Centre Edinburgh, EH9 1PL. Summerhall is a big arts venue with many small businesses within it. Get in touch to make an appointment and I will meet you in the foyer.

CAN I SEND ARTWORK TO YOU?

Yes of course, I am happy to receive artwork in the post. I will take the utmost care with your work when it arrives and return it in the same condition. Please make sure that your packing is strong and suitable.
