Send files in 8bit JPG or TIFF/TIF format. If saving as a tif, make sure it is flattened and do not use any Image Compression in the Photoshop save dialog (“None” should be selected in the tiff save options box)
- We recommend working in sRGB color space (in all areas – camera capture, monitor, and software).
- When shooting, do not use Auto White Balance, as it will result in inconsistent skin tones. In situations, where lighting is consistent (studio settings) choose a white balance to match your conditions, either by selecting a pre-set camera setting or setting proper Kelvin color temperature.
- Select image mode 8bit/RGB (not CMYK). Be sure all B&W images are fully desaturated, then saved in RGB mode, not grayscale.
When saving your files –
- Do not embed monitor or display profiles into your images. Only embed with common color space profiles that you photographed the image with (e.g. SRGB, Adobe1998).
- When saving as JPG always use the highest quality setting – in Photoshop that is 12 in the save dialog box.
- If saving Tif files do not use any Image Compression in the save dialog box – select None if not already selected.
When naming your files –
- Please use numbers only, or a combination of numbers and letters, no special characters.
- Do not use spaces, use underscores instead.
- Do not exceed 15 characters.
