When you are 'browsing' the photos individually, the caption, image number and title (if applicable) are displayed under the frame. You can click on the photo to zoom in on it and then look around at the page options in that view. I recommend using the Slideshow, as the pictures will display bigger and there is a box in the upper right corner which you can click to display the caption info. Also, there's a scale in the upper-center which allows you to change the background color while viewing. It might be helpful to lighten it when viewing an image with a dark background. For maximum viewing pleasure, most browsers will go into 'full screen' mode when F11 is pressed, then press it again to return to normal browsing mode. Also, the brightness of your monitor makes a big difference when viewing photos as opposed to reading text, so you might try brightening your screen if the pictures look too dark. Due to differences in how monitors display colors, the images may not display exactly as intended.
There is a search function enabled in the toolbar menu which will search through my galleries for a specific keyword, i.e., 'Sunsets'.
If a photo is available to purchase, there will be a 'Buy' button on the upper right corner of your screen. Click the down arrow next to the button and select 'New Product' . When you are finished ordering prints, you can access your 'Shopping Cart' and then be able to select the print size you desire. The 'Best Fit' sizes will not require any cropping of the image. Other sizes will require you to indicate how to crop the image by positioning the yellow border on the image. If you have any problems or questions concerning the placement of an order, please email me using the 'Contact' link in the menu bar. Please reference the image number, which is in the 'Caption' field, and the 'Gallery' name when inquiring about a specific image.
All prints will be processed by MPIX Labs and shipped directly to you unless indicated differently.
Please note that the watermark will NOT be on the final print, it will only appear on proofs and when being viewed online. Also, the images here are reduced in size and resolution, but the original, full-size file will be used for printing. I hope you enjoy browsing the site and please let me know if you have any questions or problems.
MPIX Professional Paper Types
1 - E-Surface Paper (Matte Finish)
Kodak Professional Supra Endura VC Digital Paper (aka Traditional E-Surface Paper) is by far their most popular paper. Accurate color, realistic saturation, excellent neutral flesh reproduction and brighter colors are just a few of the attributes to describe E-Surface paper.
2 - Metallic Paper (Pearlescent Finish)
Endura Metallic features a unique pearlescent surface. Endura offers natural looking flesh tones, sharp details, and beautifully saturated colors. Plus, Endura is strong - resistant to tearing and curling without any additional lamination. This paper uses a patented combination of film and laminate layers that result in striking, three-dimensional, lasting images on an ultra-bright background.
With either of these papers don’t worry about prints fading. The standard archival value is 100 years in home display and 200 years in dark storage.
