We invested US$4.50 to buy a CD containing photos of Thailand with excellent results.  It contained 100 high quality, professional images of Thai Arts & Crafts with both TIFF & JPG versions of the photos.  

We have selected the best photos of this collection.  The weakness of the collection is that it comes without description; where we recognize it we have indicated, otherwise it's "just" a photo of Thailand.
