It is impossible for us to provide a 'search by number' facility, as much as we'd like to, for two reasons:
Firstly, more often than not the number on the competitor won't be visible, or it'll be too small in the photo as to be legible, therefore any software can't read it.
Secondly, 'search by number' is only available through extremely smart and expensive software linked in with the right technology system which, as state-of-the-art as we are with our camera equipment and processing software, it's just not worth our while investing in a system that, even then, is never perfect. So there's a reason why the facility is usually only available at the biggest events in the country.
But hopefully we've made it fairly straightforward for you by steering you in more or less the right direction towards your photos by our gallery names.
For those of you wondering why we email digital files to you and don't adopt a 'download' policy, the reason is simple: we want you to have the best quality file there is with the optimum color balance and exposure in relation to the data the camera captured (we can't always control the light and other issues so not all images are at their best in the galleries). To apply that quality to the, literally, thousands of photos taken at an event is impractical time-wise and economically. But we ARE able to and optimize every file that a customer buys before sending. A simple solution!
