If you were invited for a portrait session for Trade for Print, then your session usually comes with a few complimentary prints. Only a limited number of prints are offered because it takes time to process the prints and it also helps you to pay attention to the prints and pick only the best. Here are some guidelines that will help you
How do I select the pictures?
There are two possibilities:
First: If you are in the gallery view where you see a screenful of pictures, small 'thumbnails' across the screen
Look to the top right of the screen - you will see an option 'Select Photos'. Click on this and then click on the picture that you'd like to select
Now take your mouse over Buy, from the drop down choose Select Product. From the next screen choose any of the three options:
Second: if you are already looking at only one picture in the full screen, then at the right side of the gallery page, you will see some shopping options. Except for the postal stamps, the rest of the options will have no price. Start with those products. Most TFP (Trade for print) portrait sessions come with at least one print that you can choose to get either as an 11x14 canvas or as a print of same size.
Choose the picture that you'd like to have as your printed session file and add to this product by clicking on the PLUS (+) sign. You will be able to specify the cropping, and any other special instructions once the picture has been added to the shopping cart. Then check-out using the shopping cart as you'd normally do on any internet website.
Even though there may be no price, you'd still need to check-out using the shopping cart.
How do I get the digital files?
Digital files suitable for social media sharing will be sent to you for any pictures that you have selected. These are not downloadable at the website because in most cases the pictures that you see in your gallery have not been edited
If you see an option for Linked-in or FB profile pictures, then those pictures will be sent only as a digital file to you, i.e., no prints will be sent
How many TFP prints can I order?
For every TFP portrait session, there are only a specific number of prints that you can choose. These numbers are usually decided by the duration of the portrait session and any other special arrangements. The number of prints therefore vary between 1 to 5.
Can I get digital files for all the pictures from a session?
No. It takes time to process the pictures and I'd prefer that you choose only the best from each session. The more pictures you have, especially as a digital file, the less value they will have - while they will still cost the same amount of time per digital file for the post-processing.
Also, high-res digital files are not offered as a product
My question is still not answered!
Just call me :-) and I will be happy to help!
