Image Categories

We have been asked to simplify navigation on the site by reducing the number of categories. As a result we have eliminated the “Images not on sale” section and have placed those images in the Monochrome and Colour sections. All images will now be annotated in terms of availability for sale and, where appropriate, the number of editions available.
