Your Free Indian Art Appraisal  

In 5 Easy Steps

1. Take Clear Photos of your North American Indian items :

    a. Reduce image size  to 4"x6" to 5"x7" image size/72 pixels per inch resolution (Standard web resolution) which should yield an image between 30-90kb per image for email and save as a "normal'" .jpg file***

    b. Include SASE (SELF ADDRESSED STAMPED ENVELOPE) OR EMAIL ADDRESSES for Snail Mail

2. Give Exact Dimensions

3. Note any damage

4. Provide contact information

5. Detail your request


Our Email Address : info@indianterritory.com


***HOW TO PREPARE NORMAL .JPG PHOTOS:

***Please do not use a proprietary program or an online program (such as Yahoo photos or Real video photos or Quicktime photos or an Online photo service) that requires special software to view your photos--Here are instructions for attaching a NORMAL .jpg photo to your email :

Save your digital photo (photos can be taken using a digital camera or you can use your scanner to copy a normal photographic print) to your computer using your normal photo editing software (if using any Windows format you have at least the "Paint" program by default. Most digital cameras and scanners come bundled with other more complete photo editing software such as Adobe Photoshop, Correll, MS Image Composer, etc.

Size your image so that the large dimension (height or width) is no more than 7 inches. Save at a "normal" resolution of 72 pixels per inch so that you can email the photo relatively quickly no matter your connection speed.

Save a copy of your image as "yourphotoname.jpg" without the quotes.

After you click file>"Save As" a window will pop up allowing you to select the location to save your photos to. If you are new to this then select "Desktop "as it will be easy to find.

 Be sure that you are not TYPING "jpg" but that you have SELECTED this file extension by clicking on the drop down window of file extension options which should be located immediately below and to the right of the space where you type in your photo's new name. Select .jpg as your file extension, then click the SAVE button to the right.

Now go to your new photo (if you saved it to your desktop go there...and if using Windows XP it is especially easy to email...:just Right-click the photo's icon > Send to > Mail Recipient

Type in our email name in the "To" field : info@indianterritory.com

and its a good idea to CC a copy of this email to yourself as well

Check your email sent folder and be sure that the email you just sent is there, open it up and see that the photo is attached and opens.

You have just emailed a "normal" jpg that any computer should be able to open without requiring special or proprietary software!

IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE A RESPONSE TO YOUR APPRAISAL REQUEST:

Emailed Appraisal Requests: 

 We generally respond to most emailed appraisal requests within two business days but there can be situations in which we have either not received your emails, not received your photo attachments or are unable to successfully send an email to your email address.

If you have not received a reply please do the following:

1. Email us a brief note -- with NO PHOTO ATTACHMENTS -- stating the date and time the original email appraisal request was emailed and requesting from us that you just need us to reply whether the other email with photo attachments was received by us.

Sometimes servers reject oversized emails or there was a technical problem during emailing so once in a while an email doesn't get to us.... or a proprietary program was used to make the photo...there are additional technical reasons why a photo may not be attached or successfully received.

2. SPAM FILTERS and Junk Email BLOCKS: Be sure to check that your email or your e-mail's server is not blocking our replies.

Sometimes spam filters/ junk email filters are set to reject all emails unless specifically permitted.

If this is how your spam filter or your email company's spam filter is set be sure to type our email name info@indianterritory.com  into your "permitted" emails so you can receive our free appraisal of your item (s).
