Ordering

For each image, Ian needs to know the species name, the 5 or 6 digit ID (see examples below) and the required image size in pixels (width, height). The maximum size each image is shown beside the photo as shown below but you may order smaller sizes to suit your requirements as determined by the price and the guide to image sizes below. Feel free to discuss your requirements with Ian using the email link at the bottom of the page.

Guide to Image Sizes

To determine the required image size for digital displays or printers, you need to know two things:

Then the required image size is width: = X multiplied by D; and height = Y multiplied by D.

Typical densities are 100 dots per inch (dpi) for displays and 200-300 dpi for printers, where an inch is approximately 2.5cm. You can convert from dots per inch, dpi, to dots per centimetres, dpc, by multiplying dpi by 0.4 (100dpi = 40dpc). The table below calculates the required image width in pixels for different examples of display/print sizes in inches and centimetres at these 3 densities.

Required
Size, X or Y
Image Size at
D = 100dpi
Image Size at
D = 200dpi
Image Size at
D = 300dpi
4in/10cm 400px 800px 1,200px
8in/20cm 800px 1,600px 2,400px
12in/30cm 1,200px 2,400px 3,600px
16in/40cm 1,600px 3,200px 4,800px

Note that software such as Photoshop can increase image sizes by resampling. As a general guide, a sharp image large enough to be printed at 200dpi can safely be resampled to print at 300 or 400dpi. Use the contact link at the bottom of the page to email Ian if you have any questions about image sizes for your project.

Conditions for Free Use

Ian permits free use of photos for personal use only. Images may not be reproduced, digitally or in print, or transmitted to third parties, without permission. You may, of course, forward images to friends or family for their personal use. You may also use images downloaded from the Birdway website on personal websites on two conditions:

Copy images that you wish to use to your own website rather than linking directly to images in the Birdway site in case Ian moves or deletes them.

Ian gets requests for free use of images and will agree to this if the project meets ALL of the following conditions:

An unfunded project is one done by volunteer(s) without any financial support such as grants.
