Large Format Digital Image Collections, Restored Vintage Photos, Historical Panoramas, Edwardian Photochroms, Antique Prints & Lithographs for Print-Making

 

CREATE & SELL VINTAGE PANORAMAS, PHOTOGRAPHS & PRINTS FROM HOME!

  
Exciting Cash-Making Opportunities

OUR PROFESSIONALLY RESTORED Vintage Image Collections allow you to create your own authentic-looking, premium quality Reproduction Period Prints, Rare Vintage Photos and Colour Photochroms, plus Photo Panoramas such as the one at the bottom.

 Originally designed for making prints for sale (and sales tested accordingly) it makes a great business for the digital age but, realising that some customers will simply want the collections for graphic projects or own decor use we offer two licensing levels accordingly - either for Personal use only or for just a little extra, including Print Selling Permission.

 
Personal or Business Use?
 
Print Selling Permission is an optional element when purchasing the majority of our image collections. Alternatively they can be purchased for Personal Use Only. See individual subject details.
 

You can print as many as you like and sell them at a price you decide (if you opt to include Print Selling Permission), framed or unframed.
 
The opportunities are varied, the returns high and the start-up small with the price offers on our wide selection of individual
subjects and a big wholesale discount too on a 5, 10, 20 or more mixed subject 'Complete Business Package' which also include free extras.

All you need is a photo capable computer printer!

Best of all, we have done all the work for you by restoring and optimizing our premium antique image range and converting them into big digital files ready for you to print beautiful, high demand  vintage panoramas, photos and prints directly from photo quality home PRINTERS (click on link), printing press, or on-site wherever you trade from.


Photo Portrait Examples - Albert Einstein, Mark Twain, Edgar Allan Poe and Thomas Edison.
There's big money to be made selling authentic reproductions of these very rare, restored photos!
With today's photo quality printing our enhanced images are even better than the originals!

 Each of our Restorations is unique, only available from us and is the final result of  three years of intensive restoration work.  Unlike the, low-res. un-restored image CD compilations usually offered on-line (beware of the copyright infringements usually found in amateur compilations) our own premium, sales-tested photo images look like genuine photos when printed on glossy photo paper and are superior. We now offer them to you at a low enough cost to enable you to quickly build up a wonderful range. One framed print sale alone should be more than enough to quickly recoup the minimal cost - and it's nothing but profit thereafter so why delay?

Load the images into your computer and start production!

Our "Master Image Files" are supplied on CDs or DVD's for you to Publish and Sell as many Prints as you like. All you need do is select which (or all) master images you wish to go into business with, load them onto your computer and you're ready to start creating as many money-making Prints as you like. They can be on the same theme for specialized outlets, or you can try a variety for general sales. The choice is wide, and with a selection of  our special dealer  compilations you can start out gradually or launch a complete range easily. Also if you want to start a Full Time Business we also have wholesale discounts right now on 5, 10, 20 or more subjects Complete Packages.


A WORD ABOUT DPI
- One of the most commonly asked questions is how many dpi or what resolution do these images have, and the answer is a) each image is entirely different as we take the time to make it matter instead of adopting the common blanket approach, and b) as many as is needed to maintain the quality of the original source material. A common misconception is that a high dpi also equals a high quality picture. Unfortunately that is not the case.

 A poor quality antique original will remain just that, no matter how high the dpi of the copy is. We could easily take the same image and turn it into 150dpi file or 1200dpi with just the click of a button (hence some professional's blind fixation with 300dpi as a 'standard' is meaningless if no other factors are considered) . The only difference would be an unnecessarily high file size in the latter case while the physical prints from both would look just the same.

 What is important is restoration and optimisation coupled with good resolution -  plus a good physical print size (as is supplied throughout) without quality fall-off. The latter all backed up by test marketing for actual saleability and then offered at a bargain price. All of our collections are suitable for normal A4 size printers and the results have been sales-tested, while several collections are also suitable for large format printers too if you happen to own one (see individual descriptions). For more on the subject of print size see our Printers page.

Be wary of misleading dpi claims

Don't be fooled by misleadingly high dpi claims for small or poor quality images. The fact is, the images will still be poor - no matter how high the dpi is - if the original is poor to begin with as dpi doesn't improve quality it simply makes the original's shortfalls plainer to see. Also (becoming increasingly common) high dpi claims where the images turn out to be only a couple of square inches physically! Any image can be exponentially increased in dpi the more it is reduced in size and the unscrupulous take advantage of that fact to mislead - beware.

 For business purposes also avoid amateur quantity-based compilations of what invariably turns out to be low quality, unusable small images with associated copyright issues - the more on the disk, the less they're actually worth having as a disc only has a certain capacity to hold good quality images. If it has thousands of pictures as sometimes trumpeted they can only be a few K each and of no practical use.

 There's a lot of nonsense talked, sometimes deliberately misleading, so be very careful when buying from amateur sellers and don't fall into the dpi nonsense trap. Better still avoid all the misdirection by only buying from the leading supplier - Timecamera!

This is what's unique about Timecamera: 1. All images are carefully Restored. 2. All images are uniquely Enhanced for Digital Print Making. 3. All are chosen specially for Print Saleability.
4. All our vintage images are Copyright-Safe for making Reproduction Prints.

 

Multiple Image Size Panoramas

ALL the collections go the extra mile. Included on each Panorama type image CD for example are up to three separate variations of each multi megabyte Master File image, depending on the size of the original. Two are for you to print from as you choose: Generally one is usually about 22 inches wide, the other where included is up to 30 inches or more depending on the proportions of the archived original. The former is ideal for Epson panoramic or roll papers and their Inkjet Printers or similar. It has high resolution. The larger is ideal for Roll Papers, large format home printers,  printing presses or quality home printers with banner capability. Either can also easily be published instead on any photo quality home printer in joinable flush fitting sections - just like the archived originals (separate, flush fitting 10x8" sheets). So if you do not have banner printing capabilities it's really no problem as part of our sales test-marketing was to sell them this way.

 Panoramas look great framed. There are many other options too, including enlarging/reducing the supplied files as desired to fit any printer output size.  Also included as a free bonus is a Multi-Megabyte file of the original un-restored image scan, which will enable you to produce your own unique choice of size, colour and degree of restoration! All types of image are supplied in minimum compression .jpg file format to suit any system. Printing instructions and paper suggestions are included.

Sales are conditional that the product be used legally and not for the misrepresentation of repro prints and photos as being vintage originals...

Better than the Originals

All our image restorations make impressive talking pieces. With modern printers it is now difficult to tell real from repro in this digital age, hence the growing popularity of digital cameras. Plus our restorations actually look better and larger than the antique originals in many cases and at the sizes supplied these collectables are at their Best Available Resolutions. The DPI rates vary widely depending on the vintage original and may be anything up to 300dpi or so where beneficial, although the rate may often be more than the antique original itself.

 Rest assured, we have done our best to offer high resolutions and often, where the pictures we supply have larger dimensions than the originals, you may also of course reduce them while maintaining file sizes for a higher resolution (if desired). Bear in mind that extensive test marketing has been carried out selling the Prints with great success before offering them to dealers in compilations.

 Note too that particularly with some of the lithographs, the resulting print-outs can look like an original - particularly so as inkjets do not give the tell tale dot pattern normally associated with reproductions using traditional printing press processes. See above, right.

A Host of Subjects

 Our Master Image Files comprise a range of 72 different subjects collections in antique Prints, 10x8" Photos and also Panoramas - from Sports to City Skylines, Beauty Parades, Native Americans, Historic Events, Period Industries, Transportation, Famous Places and many more. Several collections are very high res., allowing for larger format printing if desired. The scope is endless, and the choice is yours! Start NOW with cash-making favourite subjects, then add more collections as you expand - or go the full monty with a  professional Complete Business Package. With the special limited time price offer you have a great price deal, with more than enough images for a full-time professional business. Our 'Quick Start-Up Manual' on disc is also included - together with a host of valuable free bonus extras plus a handy image display/slide show programme for Windows.
Note: Those image collections supplied on DVD work in any country (DVD-compatible drive required).
 

 
"
Timecamera's unique digital enhancements take the making
of Reproduction
Prints and Photos
to a whole new level of
sophisticated realism."

 

High Quality needn't equate with a High Price!
 
WHILE the quality of the Timecamera range is of the highest we have also strived to make the collections readily accessible to even the smallest of businesses. Individual image prices equate to only small change and, with permission included to use our copyrighted product to make saleable prints the collections are a real bargain.  You really shouldn't need to be agonising about the price at this particularly low level if you are considering starting your own viable business. Go for it.


Test It Yourself
 
DIGITALLY printed photographs are now practically indistinguishable from the 'real' thing using today's Photo Quality Printers - in fact with our enhancements digital vintage photos can be even better!

Logical Step Forward

It's a perfectly logical step forward therefore to utilise the same printers for the making of reproduction collectible and antique prints and photos which, again can be an improvement on traditional methods such as letterpress printing with it's usual tell-tale dot pattern or micro cross hatching visible throughout. Especially when the images have also been uniquely restored and enhanced by Timecamera for digital print making.

Can you see a difference?

Take one of our digitally-enhanced photos or lithograph Master Images from any
collection, print it on our recommended photo quality stock using a standard photo quality inkjet printer.

 Then take a good magnifying glass and try and tell the difference between a real lithograph, the digitally printed Timecamera one and any repro made by a traditional method of printing. Only the latter will be obvious as a reproduction print by its dot patterns.

 We could try and persuade doubtful cynics until the cows come home but there's no need to when the proof is plain to see.
 
You'll be convinced!

 

 
TERMS OF USE
THE LEGAL STUFF

BEFORE you start making Cash from the collections, naturally we feel it very important to protect our own rights too. Unlike other image collections, all the Timecamera images have been painstakingly restored and enhanced for Print making and are unique to us.

 Note the following Terms are kept short, concise and readily understood but are nevertheless based on Copyright Law in its entirety and under which Law the collections are fully protected. Interested parties may easily research Copyright Law in depth on-line should they wish:-

Selling or distribution of any image by digital means for an end user to make prints from is not permitted but they may be displayed on a web site for the purpose of advertising and for customers to order Prints from if they are displayed in a  reduced size and resolution to avoid illicit copying.

Such Permission as above is not given if an item is stated to be for 'Personal Use Only', which may occasionally be a stipulation with certain Free Bonuses. Being 'free' such elements are included as good will only and are not considered to have been 'purchased' as such along with the associated image collection.

 By making a collection purchase you are not granted transfer of ownership of any image copyright, which shall remain with Timecamera at all times as our proprietary product and accordingly you do not have permission to copy, re-sell, market, illegally distribute or otherwise  mis-use the DVDs or individual digital image files in contravention of criminal and/or copyright law.

Neither, for your legal protection, may you grant access to the discs or files to any third parties. Also please note you are not authorised to provide any form of 'rights' or 'permissions' in relation to the images to any other person, or to an agent acting on your behalf.

 Copyright on both our restored images and/or our original scans of privately-owned source material where included, plus the DVDs or digital files remain the property of Timecamera (TM) and infringements have and will continue to be pursued under international law.

Note every endeavour is taken to ensure public domain status of images before we restore and enhance them and they are offered in good faith. However, we are happy to remove any image upon approach when it shown that copyright is still extant We recommend customers do the same and conduct their own copyright research on individual images before investing in commercial reproduction, particularly in relation to free gift/bonus items which are supplied on a personal use only basis.
