Hi There~ My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question. What is the size? At your convenience, please send photos. A complete image of the artwork including frame both front and back (do not remove from frame), a clear in-focus close-up of the signature, and a close-up of the surface so I can see the texture will be ideal. When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range. There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing on your board, then follow the steps on this link: As for the charge, please note that experts here are not employees of, experts are verified users who are only paid when you leave a favorable rating.

If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here. Sincerely, Nora

Excellent. I am heading out of town for work today. May i get this detail to you later this week or early next week? I will not remove the frame but there is glass in front so I worry about the quality of the picture. I will do my best. Thanks

Hi ,
That is fine - send over images at your convenience.
No need to remove from frame. Do not remove frame. Best way to capture the image is in natural light at a raking angle.
If I do not respond immediately, it is because I am not at my computer. Please rest assured that I will attend to your postings as soon as I am signed back in again.
