HOW TO USE THIS WEBSITE, PURCHASE AND PAYMENT INFORMATION, DELIVERY AND REFUND POLICIES:
An account is not required just to browse the site.
Before purchasing photos, you will be required to set up an account and verify your email to confirm the email address is current and valid. The account setup option can be found under the 'Account' link in the main heading. If you do not receive a confirmation/verification email, please check that it has not gone into a spam/junk folder in your email client/program or on your server. Verification emails work as dual purpose client/website protection against fraudulent transactions..
You will need to be logged in to your account before you can order photos. If you have any problems with your account setup, please email us at [email protected] and we will assist where we can. If the problem is with your email client/server, you will need to have access to your junk/spam folder in order to retrieve our account verification email.
All photos from events are stored in sections called 'Galleries'.
You can select a gallery by selecting the menu option 'Galleries' in the main header of the web site to show all the galleries. Once at the Gallery home page, you may scroll the page down to see the available galleries. Simply click on the name, or image under the name to enter the gallery. If the event was spread over several days, then further sub-galleries may be displayed. Select a sub-gallery by clicking on its name or image, just like before.
Once a gallery has been selected, the photos in the gallery are displayed as small images called thumbnails.
Hovering over each thumbnail are two icons, add to cart and select as favourite. Once the thumbnail has been clicked on, there are options to select as favourite or compare. Once you have individually selected photos for comparison, you will be able to compare them all side by side for easier choosing.
You can see all your favourites by clicking on the favourites menu option at the top of the screen.
Clicking the thumbnail image or the purchase icon will display a preview of the photo and allow you to order a print or download a digital image file.
Digital Image files are downloadable files that maybe used for websites (e.g. Facebook & Instagram), printed using your own printers, using in your own advertisements.
Since the Digital Images files are available as soon as payment has been verified there is no option for additional editing. If additional editing is required please make a note on that photo with your request. Major editing will incur an extra charge.
You can now complete the order by clicking the 'Check Out' option at the top or bottom of the page, or go back and look at other photos by clicking the name of the Gallery at the top of the page.
When browsing the thumbnails and you find a photo you like you can mark the image as a favourite. These images can then be quickly seen in your Favourites, even if you leave the website.
