Firstly, what is an image cut-out?

In our case it is a subject within a digital photograph such as a person, where the rest of the photograph has been made transparent. This gives the appearance of the subject having been 'cut out'.

Just in case you were wondering, the reason why we use digital rather than computer-generated images is that the former is of photo-quality, as opposed to photo-realistic.

What is the offer?

If there is no equivalent image to be found on any of the sites listed on our Support page, you are free to try out this free offer.

We will provide image cut-outs from digital photographs submitted by customers. These cut-outs will be placed on the server ready for all customers to download and benefit from.

We will do our best to achieve a turnaround time of 10 days, that is, from confirmation of our acceptance of the images to their uploading onto the server. This is for a batch of around 5-10 number, although it rather does depend on the complexity of the individual image.

Why provide such an offer?

Although there is an ever-increasing range of images available within Visualise2D complimented by any image cut-outs you may individually upload to your own installation, the possibilities appear almost infinite! So what better way to achieve a greater range in the quickest time possible and let everyone share in the fun but to encourage the support from all our customers?

Full details of the offer can be found below.

What are the criteria for image preparation?

For the images to be accepted, they will need to be:

There may be more criteria for consideration depending on the subject matter, but we would be happy to discuss this assessment process with you by e-mail, or by telephone.

For any images used, we will keep a copy within our central library where it will only be used as a backup for the image cut-out in Visualise2D.

For images not used, all copies will be permanently deleted from our system.

What are the terms of this offer?

You just need to be aware that in providing us with your images, the terms and conditions in the User Agreement apply as well as the following:

What about images from suppliers?

Suppliers of products such as play equipment may well have many images used in promotional material which would make ideal cut-outs. In such situations we would be more than happy to discuss the opportunity to include these within Visualise2D. Perhaps the benefit of having a product range instantly distributable to many users to include in their visualisations is sufficient enough encouragement for us to be contacted? However, a little push from users towards suppliers wouldn't go amiss!

What are the guidelines for taking images?

Hopefully the images within Visualise2D give you a good starting point. Ideally, they would need to be taken:

Don’t worry too much if your image does not meet one or two of the above as it may still be worthy of acceptance.

Remember also that for each subject, there could be two or more images. Since image cut-outs cannot be rotated within a scene, being 2D, sequential images having been obtained by walking around the subject can compensate for this. Armed with a series of image cut-outs then, it is likely that at least one will fit the orientation required in any given scene.

What is the procedure for submitting images?

Please email your image/s to, making sure that you:

If we are unable to identify the sender as a registered user of Visualise2D, then we would be unable to proceed any further with the request.

For e-mails with a total file size of below 4MB, then please feel free to just send them through.

However, if the total file size is above 4MB, please either send in more than one e-mail to get below the 4MB limit or reduce the images to allow for their assessment in the first instance. This latter option could save tying up both our respective e-mail systems!

On examination, we will let you know by return e-mail of our decision. If one or more images are accepted, we will e-mail you again as soon as the work is complete in order to direct you to its location within the download facility.
