Website Images

The Orkney Islands Council website provides information on Council Services available to the people of Orkney. In doing so we want you to feel that this website really is the website of the Orkney Community as a whole. We would like to invite photographs from the community for inclusion in our website banner. We welcome images from the mainland and islands that depict Orkney, it's services, it's people and it's culture.

Submitting Photos

What we look for in an image for inclusion is an image that can easily have a section of the picture copied and set into the web banner template. Because the banner is of set proportions we look for images that are more of a panoramic layout. An example is shown below where a wider image can be extracted from a normal photo. In the image a white rectangular border is shown around the area of the photo that will be copied for inclusion.
