The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 pixels wide) in
maximum quality JPEG format and on screen is about the size
as it would be in real life at the same distance. A larger
120 dpi image also in maximum quality JPEG format can be
forwarded by email if required.
The image is a little oversize rather than cropped close
to the edges so that the edges can easily be seen and any
chips etc can be quickly spotted. Other marks described are
usually not visible at all when the tile is viewed straight
as one normally sees it and can only be seen with a critical
eye when the tile is tilted to catch imperfections in
reflected light. For more details of how we describe marks
