    To cut a long story short we had Rebecca's pics done at the babyshow.

    They arrived today and are (in my opinion) gorgeous, 1 of them especially has caught her laughing and i love it.

    I decided to give copies to my close family-took them to 6 different shops-jessops, klick etc and all refused to copy them as it breeches copyright law and they could be fined £3k! they are apparently copyright to the photographer who is london based.:hissy:

    FFS I am gutted, my scanner is bust, and no one I know has a colour copier.

    I really wanted copies done and tbh after spending £55 on 3 pics I do not want to pay through the ear again by requesting copies from the actual photographer. And I wanted it on canvas and they wont do that either!

    Sorry for the rant but can u tell im gutted!:hissy: :hissy:

    What about a library they usually have copiers ... Faxes don't they? A local independant PC shop maybe too ...

    I have a similar thing, I want some pics blown up but only have small copies, so I am going to try to take pics of them and see how they turn out :wacko:

    Although.........thinking about it, it was Olan Mills where I had these pics done, and they have gone bust now, so technically, there would be no one to sue whoever blew them up right? :baby:
