Cerberus Stock Art Collection: Orcs & Goblins Vol. 1 Working with freelancers can be a risky proposition and can often break a small publishing company's budget. The Cerberus Stock Art Collection was created by dark fantasy illustrator Joseph J. Calkins as an affordable art resource for RPG and game industry publishers. Each collection grants limited license to six 300 dpi full page full color images and their greyscale counterparts for use as interior art.

The artwork in this set is reasonably-well executed, but is overall very heavy and black, and not optimized at for print purposes. A publisher preparing a print document is going to need to adjust the black levels, or you're going to end up with a mudd [...]

(Changing my reviews based on publisher feedback) The artwork in these collections is really very nice. Six full page images for the price, while not a must-buy, is certainly reasonable... Keeping in mind that "full page", in this inst [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
