Mike,

The native imagery was typically scanned between 1000 to 2000 dpi. The purchased imagery is 1800x1800 pixels. The imagery purchased from us is static (the pyramid layers are removed) which means you can not zoom-in or out on them. Therefore, what you see in the viewer is exactly what you will receive - so make your eyes be the judge. If a particular year is blurry (meaning it exceeds the native resolution) you will definitely want to zoom it out until it is no longer pixelated.

" The imagery purchased from us is static (the pyramid layers are removed) which means you can not zoom-in or out on them. " --> You should make this clear on the purchase page. I was disappointed at the resolution of the purchased files.

Hi Jennifer,

It is not the simplest thing to explain so we always let people modify their order for free. If a customer mistakenly does not center their site, zoom-in too close or too far, we are always willing to set-up a free exchange. I did look at your two photos which looked fantastic to me but if you want them more zoomed-out or zoomed-in just let me know and you can have it for free. I will send you an email with my email address and phone number in case you do not revisit this thread. Thanks again for the business it is much appreciated.

Is any given purchased scan of better resolution that what's seen on the open scans? Thanks
