As the days were getting shorter and the leaves were falling shorter ... a few months back ... an email arrived out of the blue asking if my image of the Caen Hill Locks in Devizes could be used on a company's 2005 calendar. I was flattered - especially when I discovered that the company making the request was Peter Brett Associates, who were involved as consulting engineers in the project to reopen the locks a few years ago.

Caen Hill Locks has matured into a beautiful spot to wander on a summer's evening, less that 5 miles from our training centre. Canalside pubs like the Barge at Seend, the Three Magpies at Sells Green and the Black Horse and the Artichoke in Devizes provide good pub meals and liquid refresements, and for trainees on our courses there's a late bus (about 10pm) back from Devizes via Sells Green to Melskham. A big thank you to Peter Brett and everyone else associates with all the canal restoration work - "we locals" much appreciate it.

What resolution is needed for an image such as this to be sucessfully printed? It depends on the final print size, but the image on our web site (1600 x 1200 pixels) was more than plenty for the purposes - they wanted an image about 3.5" wide and 2.5" tall. Had they been looking for an A4 print, the image on our site would have been woefully inadequate. And why have such a high res image on the web site? Two reasons:
a) These images are designed to be used as screen savers on our own systems, and we use our own web site as a resource centre for them. Better keep them as highres as possible, so that whenever we use them as a screen saver we don't have a degraded image.
b) The slideshow on our UK website uses Javascript to resize the image to fit the window width. Again, we want to store the pictures to as high a resolution as possible on the server for this purpose.

The Caen Hill Locks image used is on our site in the slide show section and you can also download the calendar page if you wish.
