The site would do well to include an image library where visitors and especially member's have access to high resolution, detailed close-up images of all the products tested by the WHF team. Also, images of all new products launched at shows and events like for ex., the forthcoming IFA at Berlin should be posted at the site. This would be much appreciated by your mag's fans. I am sure about that.

Re: Suggestion for an image library

There are plans to offer more images of the products reviewed, and of course we will offer extensive coverage of the new products launched at all shows we attend, but why on earth would you want a high-resolution picture library on the site? Such pictures are generally available on manufacturers' sites - well at least at good enough resolution for inspection on screen...

Two photographers = Stereoscopic pictures


Will we need special glasses to view them Andrew?

Re: Suggestion for an image library

Two more photographers would mean three, plus the freelance cover we use. Would make the suggested image library an expensive luxury with no benefit for most of the site membership, and a lot of work in policing where the pictures ended up...

How about keep the one photographer and get an assistant to turn products around so that the back can be photographed.

What's wrong with manufacurers websites/google if you need to see rear/side views of equipment.

I would have thought the rear view of head phones would be similer to the front. Big Smile

Nice idea, but it's the relighting and shooting of the rear view that takes the time, not the turning round.

Re: Suggestion for an image library

Would it help to get the assistant to turn the photographer around instead?

I can't be bothered trailing around maker's websites and in any case not all show the back side. In any case "I like big butts and I cannot lie...."
