  • Publications Guidelines
    for certain Microsoft Word and Apple s Pages Don t own a computer Not to worry We take articles the good old fashioned way too typed on paper and mailed via regular postal service Submission of photos First of all we accept good old fashioned real photos either color slides originals preferred or original black white or color negatives or B W prints made from negatives Color prints are also acceptable although color slides transparencies are preferred if there is a choice there is considerable loss of quality in a print made from a slide Nonetheless if you go that route color prints need to be at least 5x7 and printed on smooth versus textured paper Faded or color shifted slides ARE acceptable as we have the means to restore color and saturation and remove scratches dust and certain other defects We understand the reluctance many of you have in loaning out original slides or negatives We recommend using a trusted courier such as FedEx and insuring the shipment We will scan and return the slides or negatives promptly More and more people are submitting digital photos electronically and although this works great when it does work it s also an area where we have been seeing considerable trouble because many are still struggling with that pesky learning curve Most of the time the problem stems from files that are simply too small as people strive to conserve memory Forget it The most basic rule of thumb is to send us the largest file your scanner or your camera can make And remember that how good a photo may appear to look on your computer screen at 72 d p i dots per inch has little bearing on how it will look in the print media which requires 300 d p i If you do your own scanning of slides and prints here are some simple rules of thumb 5x7 B W print scan in grayscale at a minimum of 600 d p i at 100 percent 600 d p i allows us to run the photo up to about 14 inches wide at 300 d p i 8x10 B W print scan in grayscale at a minimum of 300 d p i at 100 percent 5x7 color print scan in R G B red green blue at a minimum of 600 d p i at 100 percent 8x10 color print scan in R G B at a minimum of 600 d p i at 100 percent 35mm color slide If you have high end slide scanning equipment scan in R G B at 4 000 d p i at 100 percent If you use a flatbed scanner with a slide scanning attachment not recommended but better than nothing scan in R G B at a minimum of 2 400 d p i larger if the equipment allows In all cases we prefer that you save the scan as a TIFF file but it s okay to save larger files
