your digital photos, logos or other images is
easy. Clicking below launches your system's e-mail
function (usually Outlook). From there, choose the "attach" feature and browse to the folder / desktop
where you have your images stored and attach the file.
Prior to placement in your design, each file is reviewed
for resolution and every submission receives a reply
explaining if the file is usable, or if a higher resolution
Files should be submitted as 300 DPI JPEGs at the size intended for reproduction. Unfortunately, images taken
from websites are unusable for print reproduction as
they have been saved for monitor resolution - 72 DPI. In
an effort to save client time and frustration, we ask that
you avoid submitting any web-based images.
if there is any evidence of pixelation anywhere on the picture it will not
A monitor's resolution is 72 dots per inch - we print at 300 dots per inch. So if it's visible on your monitor it will be magnified tremendously on paper.
|Second, how large is the picture on your screen? This isn't always the most accurate way of knowing, but if a good resolution image is saved in a 72 DPI (dots per inch) format, it will take up a large part of the screen. So to a certain degree, the larger the image, the better the resolution.|
Several ways, hover your mouse over the file, a text box will pop-up listing
the dimensions, file type,and file size. If hovering doesn't produce the
box, try single clicking the file to view these properties. Still no box,
try right clicking and choosing properties from the resulting menu. File
sizes are measured in bytes. There are a thousand kilobytes in a megabyte,
so MBs are larger than KBs. Also, when you attach the image to your e-mail,
it will show the file type and size that you have attached to the e-mail.
Even with digital camera file compression getting better every day, you
file size should be at least 100 KB.
If you are working in a professional design program such as Photoshop, you may open the file and select image>image size from the main navigation bar. The resulting properties box will show you both the resolution and the pixel dimensions.
|Although they may look nice on the web, images placed on a website have been modified to be low resolution by the webmaster. Low resolution images are necessary to have web pages load into the browser quickly.|
