Digital Download Instructions:
What is a digital download? A digital download is an edited image that you download from your gallery to your device. Abigayle Ray Photography LLC uploads all edited photographs from your session to our proofing gallery and digital download/online ordering site at: clients.abigaylerayphotography.com all of your images are in a secure password protected gallery, so only you and those that you share it with will have the link and password.
You can then view all the edited photographs from your session in the online proofing gallery, this is where you will select the images included in your package for digital downloading. After you have downloaded your edited images you will then be able to save them to your computer, external hard drive, memory card, flash drive or cell phone/tablet. Your photographs are in the same resolution, quality and size as you would get on a USB Drive (if your session comes with one, or if you purchase one separately).
You may notice in the proofing gallery that your photographs have a watermark on them, there is no need to worry as any digital image, prints or other print product you purchase will not have the watermark on them. After you complete your purchase the watermark on any item purchased (this includes the edited images that are part of your package) are removed automatically by our system.
You are also able to purchase additional edited images from your gallery if you would like more than what is included with your session. Single images are $15.00 each or 10 images for $125.00 and can be purchased as many times as you would like (so if you want to buy 20 additional images you simply buy one 10 pack and after selecting your 10 edited images and then you can purchase another package from the shopping cart as well).
**Important Information**: Do Not take screenshots of the images in the online gallery. These images are watermarked and are not for use until after you have made your selections and the watermark is removed. We also strongly advise against saving photos from social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter & Instagram to any device. These are compressed images, meaning they "shrink" reducing the size of the edited image from its original size and resolution leaving you with an image that may look blurry and distorted. When printing images and sharing your images please only use the high resolution images that you have digitally downloaded.
If you have any questions please contact us and we will be happy to help you.

General Print Information:
When you place your print order with Abigayle Ray Photography you can rest assured that you will receive the highest quality prints as all of our prints and products we offer come from a professional photo lab which uses the highest quality paper and inks.
All Prints ordered that you purchase with us are guaranteed up to 100 years from our vendor under normal use, handling and display.
Our Lab color calibrates their machines with each order, so if you order prints in the future they will look the same as the ones you get now so that your memories will always look the same and last a lifetime.
Our Lab also offers a multitude of sizes from normal sizes to panoramic and unusual sizes (such as an 5x15 or 15x40 prints) on paper as well as on canvas, thin wraps and metallic prints. Whether you want traditional sizes, square prints, odd sizes or panoramic, if you can imagine it, you most likely can order it!
The quality from a professional print lab is far superior to getting your prints done at Walmart, Walgreen's, CVS, Costco or any other “quick” self-serve photo labs as they are set up for mass production and only offer a select few "common" sizes, also their machines are not color calibrated on a daily, weekly or even monthly basis so each time you print they will most likely look different than the first. Their papers are not of professional quality or thickness either, and most importantly there is little if any guarantee or warranty offered.
You can view a few samples of the different print qualities next to this (simply click on an image to view it full size) and see the difference for yourself.
