Thank you to all all the respondents to my query about the charges levied
for the production of digital images supplied as an email attachment or on
A summary, as requested by several of the above: There was a wide variety
of charges and styles apparent in the responses -
Charges for each image supplied varied from 75p to £10, but an average price
of of £4-5 seemed to apply.
However, a number of variables operate:
a) Often a lower charge was applicable for an already captured, hence more
readily accessible image.
b) Many offices offered the option of a hard copy A4/A3 black and
white/colour in addition; some services offer photographic quality paper
copies at higher prices. Prices varied widely e.g. 80p-£3.50 for a scanned
A4 black and white image.
c) The charge for the cd was not always made separately, but where it was,
£1-1.50 was the going rate.
d) Several services charged by batch, e.g. 1-3, 4-10 images etc. and charged
less per image the greater the order.
e) Some offices operated a discretionary charging regime depending on the
intended use of the image.
Hope this helps.
