WHAT IS UPC IMAGE BANK
It is a photo gallery to be displayed online created by the Unione di Prodotto Costa (Costa Product Union) in order to make pictures depicting the Riviera and its neighbourhoods easily accessible. We thank the municipalities and the provinces of the Emilia Romagna region and the Park of the Po Delta for the pictures they gave us.
WHAT IT CONTAINS
The UPC Image Bank includes many low-quality pictures (to be easily accessible online) divided according to subject, theme, event and resort, as you can see from the nearby menu.
HOW IT WORKS
1 Search - Using the menu on the left, you can select the pictures you are interested in according to the available criteria. You can include a text from the field "keyword" (for example Santa Monica) and, through the "search" button, enter all the available pictures concerning the famous circuit of Misano.
Important, every result contains a maximum of 18 pictures. Clicking "Next" you can display other available pages.
2 Selection - Clicking "Add to chart" you can select the pictures you are interested in and include them into your chart in order to buy them.
3 Inquiry - To display the content of the chart and go on with your purchase, it is necessary to click the chart upper left. From the page you will enter you can eliminate the selected pictures, go back to the photo gallery or submit the order.
4 Payment - to have cd-roms shipped together with the selected pictures, it is necessary to pay in advance and to communicate the address to allow the shipment via surface mail.
The Costa Product Union will send you high-quality pictures provided with cd-rom upon request and advance payment. The cost of the service amounts to 50,00 for the shipment of 10 pictures plus cd-rom. For every further picture, the cost will amount to 10,00 for non members and to 5,00 for the members of the Costa Product Union.
SOME SIMPLE SUGGESTIONS TO SEARCH FOR PICTURES
Using more search parameters (such as children+sea+rimini) you can do detailed research in order to achieve better results. Should the research be too much detailed, pictures won't be displayed. In this case it is advisable to limit the use of search criteria.
Use consistent parameters. A search including "elderly people+funfair" could not give satisfactory results.
The use of the field "keyword" is very useful to search for specific pictures, for example single sports (golf, sailing, volleyball and so on) and special events (such as nove colli, paganello and so on), but the joined use together with other search parameters could be too much selective and it is advisable to use it with caution. Pay attention: remeber to delete the text from the field "keyword" not to affect following research.
Experiment different search combinations to understand which are the strategies which suit your requirements the most. Be quiet, you won't cause any damage. Have a good search!
