What's the BIG idea?


The Rock Island Argus and Moline Dispatch have begun offering readers an online, self-serve photo reprint service.
The service, called Instant Reprint, lets readers search or browse the digital archives of work produced by the papers' staff photographers. Readers can purchase traditional reprints for $15, or simply download digital photos for $7.50.
Readers pay online by credit card. Prints are mailed within a week. Digital files, in .jpg format and up to 1.5 megabytes in size, are sent immediately via e-mail attachment.
The database contains many photos not published in the print newspapers - particularly high-school sporting events and other events "that have over the years generated a steady stream of requests for copies of 'the photo I know you took but didn't use in the paper.' Instant Reprint allows us to efficiently satisfy those requests, most of which previously have been logistically impossible to fulfill," the site states.
