I will be providing pictures on a Disc for one of the local high school basketball teams for a fee. They will show these during the banquet in a slide show. I think this is a good opportunity to remarket the season to the parents and athletes. But I want to make sure the images are of ample size to show good on the slide show and not be sufficient for prints.

I’m seeking any input/help on the image size/Dimension to accomplish the task.

Thanks for your help.

Happy Shooting ;)

The best way to protect your images is to give them a simple contract which states what they may (and may not) use the images for. Do this in person so you can talk through it with the person in charge. That way they can't later claim they didn't know.

In addition would it be possible to set up print booth at the Banquet? That would be another really good way to ensure that possible sales don't get missed - The slide-show includes a slide stating that "prints of these photos can be purchased now....". Offering the school/team 10-20% of any profit (after costs deducted) might help.

I try to avoid suppling photos on disc or on a website without water marking them. No matter
how small, or compressed you make them, someone will print them out, try to enlarge them or
whatever only making your work look like #%&^.

Invest in some software so you can produce the slideshow yourself. Create the slide show output
so it is in DVD format ( actually a movie ). That way, the option of "grabbing" your photos is via
a pause and screen shot, which is hardly worthy of print.

I present at the football and baseball banquets each year. You can sell the slideshows or suggest
that they would make excellent Senior gifts ( which they do ). I also sometimes showcase some
specialty items like trader cards, photo collages or large format prints. Was easy for me since
I had a son going through the programs and was basically the team photographer. I do run my
shop as a business, but it is not my full time job, just a side.

I also worked with these teams for fund raising, producing team posters which have advertising
from local businesses.

Yes, it should provide a good opportunity to remarket. Did you take pics through out the season
and display them on a website?

Put a little slideshow together with a program like Antimoto. Put your logo on all of the photos and you'll be good. There's no way they can get to the photos if you already put them in a slideshow for them. They will then not have to put one together, meaning you could potentially make more. I'd say somewhere between $25-75. Take a look at the one I put together a few weeks ago...http://www.colesales.c​om/?p=165 (external link)

I charge my teams $265. for a 15-20 min slideshow which I make using ProShow Producer. I have it run in an endless loop for the duration of the banquet.
