Compost Images


 The Compost Images web pages contain a collection of digitized photos of various aspects of composting and compost use. These electronic images are intended to aid agricultural professionals in their educational programs dealing with compost. If you need a photo for a presentation you are working on, and don't have one, Compost Images may help you out. The images are organized into five separate pages as follows:

· Compost Systems
Compost Equipment
Compost Application
Field Results
Other Management Aspects

Most images were created by scanning the original photographic slide on a Nikon slide scanner, and saving the images as a .jpg file. The original file for a photo ranges in size from 600-1200 KB. In order to allow for quick browsing, we have created thumbnail versions of each photo that are on the web page when it loads. If you see a photo you are interested in, click on "Screen" to see a larger version and then determine if it suits your needs. If so, you can then click on "Full" to open the original high resolution file for downloading. It will generally greatly exceed the size of your computer screen. Some photos do not have a full-size high resolution version available.

Compost Images was developed as part of the Compost Education and Resources for Western Agriculture project, funded by the western region USDA Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program. The pages were created by David Granatstein and Elizabeth Kirby at Washington State University, Wenatchee, WA. Please contact David at granats@wsu.edu if you have any questions about the site. We will gladly add more compost images if you have some that you would like to contribute.

Images may be used without permission, however, please credit WSU or CERWA Project as appropriate. Photos were supplied by Robert Rynk, David Bezdicek, and David Granatstein, unless otherwise noted.
