RubberBall Photo CD Collections

Images found on our CD-ROM collections are an original series of images photographed exclusively for CD. All photographs were shot between 1995 and 2004. All images are royalty free and model released.

This collection was conceived and produced with the idea that photography delivered on CD-ROM should be of the highest quality possible, should be reproducible in print or other media with no loss of quality from original image, and should have images that are versatile and usable. These CDs were produced with this in mind. If you have any questions about technical issues, or if you have any comments or concerns about this product, please call for technical support at 801-224-6886.

You'll find a broad diversity in the models featured in our photographs; many images on the CD are similar in style and can be used in a series.

An efficient, simple Extensis Portfolio browser is included on each of the CDs for Macintosh and PC users. All you need to do is click and browse. Adobe Acrobat software is included for all platforms, and an Adobe Acrobat file is included for browsing the images on multiple platforms.

Large format images were typically taken digitaly or scanned with a high-end Linotype-Hell scanner as CMYK tiffs at 300 ppi. Each image was cropped, retouched for dust, film grain defects and minor facial blemishes. They were then saved as JPEG files with the maximum quality compression settings. The large format JPEGs compressed to images sizes between 5 and 8 mb; when opened, they range from 26 to 100 mb in size. Images sizes are approximately 8 x 14 or 9.5 x 17 inches(We have found that these images have experienced virtually no noticeable loss in quality due to compression).
