To everyone in this thread, please bear the following in mind.

We may not agree with museums' decision to limit access. We may not understand it either. But if we ignore or flout or break their rules, our access to these items we want to study may become further limited.

We may have to play by their rules to keep getting access to these items.

Happy

ChadA

if I understood correctly. You want to see the sword at 70 dpi. (I understand that the better the pixel then dpi.)


No, I was joking. DPI means "dots per inch". For example, if you have a picture that is 1200x800 pixels and you print it on a piece of paper that is 6x4 inch (the average photo) then it is 200 dots per inch. My joke was that I used the size of the real sword as a start, not the size of the actual picture that the museum has Wink

Absolutely.

total length of the sword is 1100 mm = 43,307 inches
My goal was to demonstrate that the cross on fuller was slightly different from what posted on the wiki.

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reichsschwert

Then also I wanted to show that the texts speak of engravings of the cross (Schwertfegermarke) on both sides. From my photos is clear only one side, the other is not clear. Too many scratches cleaning have almost erased everything.
To do this you need strong magnification.
I did a test, I have maximized, outside the rules.
Sorry, but not possible.
If you want you can order at this address, dowload via ftp.khm.at
The cost depends on what you choose, is about 80 Euro.

To be honest, the photos are out of the ordinary. Seems to have the sword on the table. The size, known to all, coincide with the tenth of a millimeter with a graphics program. We also see the cross on fuller, the scrape of cleaning, incredible.
Maybe they used special equipment and a professional photographer.
This in all honesty.
Did the Museum provide them to you perchance? Because apparently many collections are currently building up a stock of high-resolution digital photographs of their items. I had the chance to chat with the person in charge of that in the Naturwissenschaftliche Sammlung in Innsbruck. Those images are strictly for inter-Museum used though and only accessible over a special platform. It stands to reason that they would request you to publish them in a reduced resolution.

no. all can buy, only for purposes of study, forbidden to disclose for commercial purposes.
For commercial purposes, different rules, different costs.

P.S.
a clarification, 3 photos 80 euro, should sort it all together, the price of a single photo is high compared to order all at once.

Ciao
Maurizio

Yes, free access is limited to other institutions in the same field, that's what I meant. It stands to reason that they'd request you to reduce the size of the file when publishing it in a noncommercial context though, because really anybody could grab it from there and reuse it.

And I think that you're a man of taste. The Reichsschwert is a beautiful blade indeed, worthy of being reproduced.
