HOW IS THIS different than the stories membership?

The 4K match downloads section (HERE) allows you to purchase 1 story (usually $4.99) at a lower cost than a full membership (usually $15.99). A full membership allows you to view all Stories online and at a lower resolution than the 4K image resolution of the downloadable version.


What do I get if I buy 1 match?

You will receive a link to a ZIP file to download which includes all images at 4K resolution, and an HTML file to view the story itself on your computer (no internet required after download).


How does the resolution compare?

The Stories section offers images for online viewing at 1280x720 resolution. The single match downloadable versions are 4K (3840x2160).


What if I don't have a 4k monitor?

No problem -- You'll still get the benefit of being able to view images at full screen and see more detail. If you're viewing the HTML file you can right-click and open the image in a new window, or use CTRL and "-" to reduce the size to your liking.


What if I want both a membership and 4k Download?

You are able to purchase both, if you like. The membership can help you identify stories you particularly liked and would want to have stored locally and in higher quality.


I didn't see the purchase link?

The link to purchase a 4K match download will be listed under the image in the 4K Downloads section.  Normal memberships can be purchased separately here.


What if the match I want isn't listed?

Please contact us at admin@scissored.net and we'll put it in the queue of stories to make available for 4K download.


Are there samples of the quality?

Yes, see below.
