Can you provide higher resolution images?

As the vast majority of our collection is of an analogue nature, they are scanned at the highest resolution that our scanner will allow. This is usually suitable for most purposes. If it is found that an image is of too low a resolution for your purposes, please contact us for either a refund, or to see if we can send you the image in a higher resolution format.
