How to buy a high resolution file Automatic translate
We are approached with a similar question very often, but, unfortunately, we do not have files suitable for use in high-quality printing. All that is available is available on the site. The sources of many files in our collections were shot on a regular camera, so if you need to print high-quality reproductions, you will need files of a completely different level of detail.
High resolution pictures suitable for printing can be found in large image banks:
- Reunion des musees nationaux (RMN)
- Erich Lessing Culture and Fine Arts Archive
- The scala picture library
- Bridgeman art library
- Art resource
- Bildagentur für Kunst, Kultur und Geschichte (BPK)
The painting collections of these photobanks, in aggregate, significantly (at times) exceed the Gallerix.ru collection in volume. If you find something on this site - with a high probability, you can find this picture in high resolution in one of the photo banks presented above.
If the painting is in a large museum in Russia, Belarus or Ukraine, it is often easier to go directly to the museum. As a rule, large museums have the highest quality shooting of their collections and can help you. In addition, buying a file directly at the museum is likely to cost you less than buying the same file in a photo bank.
If the picture is in the museum funds of the Russian Federation and you are planning to replicate printing or souvenir products using its reproduction, then you should know that the “ Museum Funds Act "(See Art. 36), which refers to the right of first publication and the need to obtain permission for such replication from the museum in which the original is located. In relation to paintings, from the death of the author of which 70 years or more have passed, Article 1282 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation “Transition of a Work into the Public Domain”.
What if the picture could not be found in the desired resolution anywhere, even in the photo stocks? Today’s technology allows you to get a very high-quality image with a good camera, taking it with you in the museum. Of course, in this way, without training, you will not get a file that is similar in quality to the stock, but getting 3000-4000 for the most part is quite possible. Brief instruction here .
