Please ignore this page unless you need, or are interested in, this technical information. Several viewers have asked about specific issues related to viewing or printing these pages and so some explanation is given below.
The site is optimised for viewing with Internet Explorer 4.0 and later versions at a resolution of 1024 by 768 pixels on a 15” screen (or larger), but should still work adequately with other browsers and at other resolutions and screen sizes.
This website has deliberately been designed to be “image rich” which means it needs to be viewed using broadband with a transmission speed of at least 2.0 Mbps. Our apologies to those with narrowband, as downloading will be very slow.
The explanations given below are for Explorer 6.0.
Pictures and Photographs
Where possible, a choice between medium and high resolution is offered. The high resolution photographs are up to 1280 by 960 pixels, whilst the medium resolution are up to 640 by 480 pixels.
To help speed up the downloading times, many pictures and photographs are initially displayed as small thumbnails, which if clicked on will expand to a separate page with a larger resolution picture. To return to the main web page, click on the green Back button.
In some cases, links to high resolution pictures are provided and these may exceed the size of any smaller screens, in which case you may have to scroll the page to see all parts of the picture.
Should you wish to print a page from this site you will need to do so in landscape orientation, rather than portrait. From the File pull down menu, select Page Setup, then click the Landscape button at the bottom left of the dialogue box. You can then check if this is correct by selecting Print Preview before selecting Print.
All photographs remain the copyright of the original photographer. Any reproduction must only be for your own non-commercial use. Please contact us if you are going to use them for any other purpose.
