Frequently Asked Questions

If I purchase a downloadable painting tutorial, can I re-download it later?

Yes, just contact our support department and we will reactivate the link for you.

If I have trouble downloading a miniature painting tutorial can I change my order to have it shipped?

Yes, just contact our support department and we will ship out a copy of the DVD to you. Shipping and Handling charges may apply.

What do I need to view the DVD tutorials?

You may view the DVD disc on any standard DVD player. The disc is not region coded so it should work anywhere in the world. However, the content is formatted for North American Television (NTSC). If you live in an area with another television standard (i.e. PAL or SECAM in Europe and Japan) your player may or may not be able to play the disc depending on how old your DVD player is (90% of all European DVD players can play NTSC video). If it does not work, you can view the content on your computer screen by inserting the DVD into any standard computer DVD drive. Note that X-box and Play Station may not be able to play consumer DVD-R discs that are Region 0 encoded.

I didn't get my links - what should I do ?!?

Don't worry. Everyone gets what they paid for. We understand the frustration of purchasing goods online without any face-to-face interation. If you don't get your links automatically within 10 mins contact our support department and we'll send them manually. However, please be aware that since we're not in the office at all times during the day this can take upto 24 hours. But again, you'll get your links guaranteed. 

What is the difference between the downloaded videos and the DVDs?

The only difference is the compression technology used to deliever the content. DVD's use a codec called MPEG-2 and the downloadable videos use Apple's H.264 codec. In terms of image quality there is virtually no difference between the two. H.264 is the standard codec used to encode high definition video delievered on HD-DVD and Blu-Ray disc. The only requirement to play the downloads is the free Apple Quick Time Player or the VLC Player. We reccomend using the VLC Player for smooth playback experience and Quicktime for video quality. The QuickTime Player tends to have slower playback which has not been adressed in version 7.4.

Can I order outside the US and Canada?

Yes, we offer world wide delivery. Just note that orders outside the US/Canda may take longer to recieve depending on your country's Customs Policy. Alternatively you may purchase certain tutorials as downloadable products and save the shipping charges, not to mention recieving the content immediatley.

When does the order ship?

We ship the orders the next business day. We use Regular USPS Mail which does not provide tracking numbers.
