Proof Copies of PhotosWhy Do this?ObjectivesKnow what a proof copy of a photograph isDescribe a range of methods of giving proof copies to customersExplain benefits & drawbacks of methods of sharing proof photographsContact SheetPhotographers working with film would get tiny prints done to pick out which were the keepers from a sessionNow when using digital we can create proof sheets for customers to choose which photos they want to buy so they perhaps pay for 20 photos out of 100 in a sessionThe images are proof that what the customer pays for will be as good as they hope

A contact sheet from a portrait session with Margaret Thatcher by Peter Marlow- showing which photo he chose to use from a whole film of picturesPaper Proof PhotosProofs can be posted to the customer on paper to choose from small thumbnailsThis is also called a hard copy the proofs would be output with a high-quality photo printerE.g. the school photographer does it this way proofs are given out by your form tutor so your family can order copies if they wantDigital Proof PhotosProof photos could be emailed to customers However, most photographers now have websites to show customers digital proofsOften each session has its own password to keep proof copies privateThese are often small versions of the full-size image also called thumbnails, but may have a larger version if you clickProtecting Digital ProofsSome customers might not want to pay for full copies of photos if all they want to do is post on FacebookSo how could a photographer stop them from doing that?Protecting Digital ProofsDisable right-click & copyWatermarksLegal textPassword so others cant see the photo

All of these can be ignored or got around if people want to!

Choosing Paper or DigitalPaperSmall/medium cost each time postage, paper & printingSeems more old fashionedCustomers can view any time with no computerPhotos are smallerSlightly lower chance of copying photos DigitalWebsite costs quite a lot to set up but no extra cost per customerSeems more up to dateCustomers can view on any computer, any timePhotos can be zoomedSlightly easier for customer to copy photos without payingTaskDownload the student task from the VLEYoull need to answer the questions & put some example images in to showExam Question Read CarefullyProof copies of photographs are sent to customers a few days after the photographic session.Proof copies of photographs need to be manipulated before being sent to customers. One of these techniques is called a Watermark. Explain why a watermark may be used. [2]Proof copies may be sent electronically or as a hard copy. Identify one hardware device that could be used to create a hard copy of the photographs. [1]Describe how proof copies of photographs may be sent electronically to the customers. [2]

Example AnswerLook at the answers and decide (in pairs) how many marks they should getTo stop people from copying the photoA printerOn a websiteA watermark shows that the photo has not been paid for, so customers cant use it without looking cheapA laser printerA website could be set up where customers log in with a session password and then can choose the photos they want to buy
