How to Get Copies of Photos

[ 10/24/14: updated to reflect the current version of (the moving target of) the Flickr UI ]

Generally I set my photo permissions to:
Creative-Commons/Attribution/NonCommercial/Share-alike

In all cases I grant blanket permission for the artists or venues in the photographs to use the images in any way they want – though I’d appreciate it if you let me know what you do with them, and attribute the photos to me.

Photos are stored on Flickr. In most cases the full resolution image is available for download from there (in the case of some older images only a reduced resolution copy is on the site).

To download a photo:

  • Go to the Flickr photo album (click on the thumbnail with the caption “Click for Album on Flickr“) and click on the image of the photo  you want, to get to the photo page.
  • Depending on your browser and/or device  on the right hand side of the photo page is either a ‘…’ or an a icon with a down-arrow, apparently signifying ‘download’.  Clicking  on the down-arrow icon that will bring up a menu from which you can download  the photo in several resolutions, including the original resolution. Clicking on the ‘…’ will bring up a menu with a variety of options
  • In either case, selecting Selecting ‘View all sizes will take you to a page where you can choose from to download the photo in various resolutions, including the original.

Essentially all my published photographs have been modified in some way: one or more of cropped/color-enhanced/watermarked. If you would like a copy of the original photo or a photo without a watermark please contact me.
