What is an antique image?
An antique image is an image of people, places, and things from
another time. Our collection of images come from books, prints,
postcards, trading cards, and newspapers/magazines. Our images offer
you the ability to reproduce them on traditional paper, the web,
or a myriad of places. These digital images were reproduced from original
artwork that is either 50 years of age and has not had the
copyright renewed or are
75 years or older. This places the physical image legally in
the public domain. Our images are rbeing purchased can be
used over again to make projects, as they are royalty free. You can, with a computer,and a
normal color or b/w printer, create your own high-quality reproductions.
You can also use the images to send via E-mail or place within a
2. Are they public domain images, and can I reproduce them freely?
The images available for download are researched to be approximately
50 to 75
years of age, or older. This is done to prevent the infringement of copyright
violations by our team who archives the collections, and for you,
our user who wishes to recreate these images. The images are "raw
graphics." They were scanned as they were originally made. You may
reproduce physical products from the raw graphic images freely.
However, any "DIGITAL" reproduction in an email, website,
television or film production requires our permission.

3. Is it difficult to use the images?
It is very easy to use your downloaded images. The images are
scanned in a jpg format. This format allows both the MAC/PC
computers to immediately open and use each of images
4. Do I need a graphics program to create projects from my
Yes and No. If you have Internet Explorer you can view each
image. If you would like to create a multitude of projects, I would
suggest you purchase a graphics program such as Adobe or Paint Shop
5. What is the difference between the low-resolution
images that I can purchase at my local store and your hi-resolution
Excellent question! Low resolution means that it was scanned
at a dpi that will not take up much memory. The lower resolution
format is excellent for Internet graphics. However in order to reproduce
high quality images on paper or send to someone to create their
own projects, high resolution is needed. Low-resolution images do
not enlarge with clarity and vividness. Most high-resolution images
are 75.00 to 150.00 each.
6. Will the Images work on a PC and a MAC?
Yes. Because each is a jpg images which are compatible
with both types of computers.
