In what resolution and format are the photos?
The oblique photos are 12-megapixel JPEGs.
The vertical photos are 18-megapixel JPEGs.

​What if my property is not centered in the photo?
This discussion is a little tedious, so I apologize.
The oblique photos start out at 12 megapixels of resolution.
This is enough resolution to crop in significantly and obtain
a decent quality image.  If your property is off-center in the photo,
follow this procedure to determine if cropping the image would
work for you.  First, form an imaginary rectangle around the
property, with the property centered.  Now estimate the percentage
that rectangle represents of the total area of the photo.
Multiply 12 megapixels by that percentage, and that will be the
resolution of the cropped image.  The question is, will that be
sufficient resolution for your particular application.
Most photos on LoopNet, for example, contain less than one
megapixel of resolution, in a pdf marketing package.

Is it possible to crop and perform other enhancements?
...including adding text and graphics.
Yes.  There is a FREE and easy-to-use software program that
we highly recommend.  It is a free download, and can be found
at the following website: www.FastStone.org.

How do I pay for the pictures?
Once you select your pictures from the thumbnail area,
click on the CHECKOUT button.  
If you are satisifed with your cart, click on PROCEED TO CHECKOUT.
Then click on CONTINUE to create an account.

What company developed your website?
I have been very fortunate and blessed to work with a company
in New Delhi called Deligence Technologies.
I would especially like to thank Archana and Sanjay
for their tireless efforts on this project.
You can view them online at www.Deligence.com.
I highly recommend them for all your website development needs.

Can I have my listings posted on this website?
I am presently looking for good examples of our imagery being utilized
in marketing materials.  If you purchase aerials from us and use that
imagery in your marketing activities, please use the CONTACT page
to send us a link to the page where the imagery is displayed.
Upon approval, we will place a link to the listing on this website.
The page is presently under development.

What if I need my property custom flown?

situation requiring aerial photos.  If you need your property custom
flown, we can shoot most locations for $250.  Our schedule varies
