> We have endeavored
to create an easy to search database for our growing collection of images.
As you can see there are numerous categories to browse. You can also enter
keywords in the search box to narrow your choices. We have embedded keywords
into all the image collections to respond to more selected searches. The
scope of your search results will be determined by your selection of keywords.
> Quick Search -
By default the system uses "Match at least one keyword" for the quick search
function. If you input "beautiful sunset" (without the quotes) into the
quick search field, then the search function will return results for any
media that contain either "beautiful" OR "sunset" in its properties.
The system supports the "AND" and NOT" operands in the quick search function
by the use of the plus sign (+) and minus sign (-) respectively in front
of the keywords.
If you input "beautiful +sunset" (without the quotes)
into the search field, the system will only return results for any media
that contain both keywords "beautiful" AND "sunset" in its properties.
If you input "beautiful "sunset" (without the quotes)
into the search field, the system will return results for any media
that contain the keyword "beautiful", but this media can't contain the
keyword "sunset" in its properties.
Note: There must not any spaces between the
second keyword and the input operands (+), (-) keywords.
Search - The advanced search function
doesn't use the same algorithms as above. It offers options allowing you
to choose which operand you want to use for your searches.
There are three options available.
Match at least one keyword
The system will return results for any media that contain either one
of the input keywords in its properties.
Match all keywords
The system will only return results for any media that contain all input
keywords in its properties.
Match exact phrase
The system will only return results for any media that contains the
exact input keyword phrase in its properties.

>The word Giclée (“g-clay”), is derived from the French verb gicler meaning "to squirt or spray", Giclée, is used to describe a fine art digital printing process combining pigment based inks with high quality archival quality paper to achieve an inkjet print of superior archival quality, light fastness and stability.
> The process involves squirting or spraying microscopic dots of pigment-based ink onto high quality art paper or canvas. The image is colour corrected to attain the closest possible match to the original work if required. The digital information is fine tuned to the type of paper or surface on which the image is to be printed, further ensuring fidelity to the original.
> Giclées are printed on a variety of substrates or mediums, the most common being watercolour paper or canvas. Image permanence is a concern to artists and collectors. Estimates are based on laboratory simulations of aging to give a fade & colour shift resistance of up to 200 years in ideal conditions, tests developed and conducted by Epson.

Terms and Conditions of Sale
Please read the following terms and conditions ("the Terms") carefully. By placing an order with us you shall be deemed to have accepted the Terms and your order shall, together with the Terms, constitute the contract between the parties ("the Contract").
Our acceptance of any order placed by you shall at all times be subject to these Terms, unless otherwise agreed in writing by us.
"We"/"us"/"our" means the Chris Windsor Photography (a company registered in England and Wales, whose registered office is at 75 Bedford Avenue, Barnet, Hertfordshire, EN5 2ES.)
"You"/"your"/"yours" means you, the Customer
"the Goods" means the goods to be sold under the Contract between the parties.
1. Characteristics of the Goods
1.1 We will do our best to ensure that colour toning of monochrome prints is to a consistent standard and that, in the case of colour images, colour balance is maintained within acceptable professional tolerances.
1.2 As colour matching is a largely subjective process, exact matching cannot be guaranteed. Colours may vary from screen to screen, and from screen to print, due to the colour set-up of individual computers and screens. For these reasons, colours may vary slightly from those shown on the Chris Windsor Photography Limited website at www.chriswindsorgallery.co.uk ("the Website") or otherwise shown to you at the time of ordering and we accept no liability for such variation. All descriptive literature including colour illustrations are therefore approximate and do not constitute a trade description. For the avoidance of doubt, you agree that you do not rely on any description when entering into the Contract.
1.3 Unless otherwise stated, we use a fine art digital printing process combining pigment-based inks with high quality archival quality paper to achieve an inkjet print of superior archival quality, light fastness and stability. Our prints are created using Epson 4800 or 9600 printers with Epson Ultrachrome K3 inks, which with the 8-channel print head is capable of producing a wide tonal range and colour gamut.
1.4 Giclée printing offers both a softness and richness of colour and we will endeavour to ensure that the print represents the original work in the closest possible way.
1.5 In the case of framed prints, our framer creates bespoke frames for all our fine art prints. All frames are made to order and are made with wooden mouldings sourced from sustainable forests, and all waste is recycled.
