Pictures Needed

We’re seek­ing por­traits of hymn writ­ers, trans­lat­ors, com­pos­ers & ar­rang­ers to il­lus­trate this site (see re­quests on in­di­vid­ual hymn and bi­o­gra­phy pag­es).

If you find one of the re­quest­ed im­ag­es on­line, at­tach it to an e-mail and send it to us.

If you have a phys­i­cal co­py of a re­quest­ed im­age (for ex­am­ple, a pho­to­graph­ic print) please scan it for us. Scan­ning is the pro­cess of stor­ing a pic­ture elec­tron­ic­al­ly so a com­put­er can dis­play it.

We can use scanned pic­tures in JPG (pre­ferred), TIFF, BMP, GIF, PCX, FPX, PNG, ACC and MIX for­mats. Note: If you send us sheet mu­sic, a file in Note­Wor­thy Com­pos­er or Muse­Score for­mat is the most ef­fi­cient for us. If you can’t do that, a scanned im­age is OK.

About Co­py­rights: Pho­to­s of peo­ple who died in or ear­li­er are us­u­al­ly in the pub­lic do­main (that is, not co­py­right­ed).

We can post co­py­right­ed ma­ter­i­al on­ly if the co­py­right hold­er has giv­en writ­ten per­miss­ion. If you send us co­py­right­ed ma­ter­i­al, please in­clude the per­mis­sion state­ment from co­py­right hold­er.

There are ma­ny im­ag­es we need, but the lists be­low show our great­est needs. For most of these peo­ple, we have poor qual­i­ty or ve­ry small im­ag­es. For oth­ers, we have no im­age at all.

If you have (or can find) good qual­i­ty head-and-shoulders pic­tures (at least 200×300 pixels) of these peo­ple (or an­y­one else whose pic­ture we’re mis­sing), it would a great bless­ing!
