Contributions to the Photo Image Library
If you have any original old family photographs taken by Derbyshire photographers, I would be very grateful for the contribution of scanned images of these photos.  I would also be happy to try and provide an estimate a date for any images sent.  Please email images scanned in full colour mode at a resolution of at least 300 dpi, of both the front and reverse of the photo, saved as JPG files, to
Brett Payne.  It is important to take care to include the full extent of the card mount in your scans, as the card mounts often contain useful information for dating purposes.  Please also state the size of the photo, in mm, if you have the original.  It would be helpful to have as much information as you can provide about the subject(s) - such as full names, dates and places of birth and death etc. - as well as the source of each photograph.  If you know or have any idea of where and when the photo was taken, that would be very useful for dating purposes.  After responding privately to the contributer, I will include any images supplied on my next site update as soon as I can. All contributions will be fully acknowledged on the relevant page(s), and I will also include copyright statements in the name of the contributor, with an email hyperlink, unless you state that you wish otherwise.
