Where can I get photos from to send?

Where can I get photos from to send?

Many celebrities will supply their own photos when they send you an autograph, but you might decide you would like a special photo or item signed. So where can you locate photographs?

The most obvious place is to buy one, and there are many places on the internet you can do this, e.g. http://www.allposters.com (or http://www.allposters.co.uk ), or http://www.moviemarket.com (or http://www.moviemarket.co.uk ).

You can also get photos, postcards and posters from retail shops like Athena. Another great place to get pictures is from magazines.

If you want to download photos from the internet, the best place I have found for good quality photos is http://www.altavista.com. You can also try: http://www.google.com/images or http://www.msn.com/images or http://www.yahoo.com/images

If you go there, and click on the IMAGES tab, then choose LARGE in the scroll down "picture size" box on the right of the page. This will ensure only the largest (highest quality) photos are shown.

Then enter the celeb name / film in the search box and away you go!!!

You can also do a similar thing via Yahoo and Google, but I have found Altavista to be the best!!! Edit: http://www.dogpile.com/ is also supposed to be good according to rpbluesman (thanks!)

You can also download pictures from http://www.allmoviephoto.com/ <<arrow$ Thanks seb88 {thumb2}

Unfortunately not all celebs will sign absolutely "anything" you send them. Some are bound by contract only to autograph "approved" pictures, however if this is the case they will usually send you one of their own.

Good luck

I have a further question, if you download some photos, can you just print them out on a home printer? Will normal printing paper be fine to get autographed?
