Contributed text and pictures for us to make artwork with


Text


Digital files: We can accept text files as Microsoft® Word files and most files saved as .doc, .txt and .rtf formats. Don't worry about extensive formatting - that's our job. Just give an indication of the relative importance of the material - like major and minor headings, footnotes, captions - we'll do the rest.
Hard copy: If you don't have a digital file of your material then the next best thing is a clear, clean printout. We can OCR this into our computers, though time charges will apply.
Scribble: Well, if you're still at the making notes stage we can do the typing (provided we can read your writing!). Time charges may apply.
Only ideas: We can write the words for you. Call us to arrange a convenient time and we will get your ideas down on paper for you. Time charges may apply.

Logos


Digital: For logos we would love an EPS file if you can get one – please see FAQs for more details.

Images and Photos – hints and tips


For photos we prefer the biggest original images from your camera to get the best publishing quality (JPEG/JPG is OK).
For best results:
  • set your camera to the largest image quality – 'superfine' or equivalent
  • transfer the images from your camera or media, don't 'save' them
  • don't open and re-save JPG images as they lose information on each save
  • if you can set your camera's colour space to Adobe RGB - even better!
  • don't crop or adjust your images before sending them
  • when emailing photos, please make sure your email package doesn't have its preferences set to compress or 'reduce the file size' of images
  • please don't send website images.

In the final publication, we use images at 300 dpi (pixels per inch) resolution at final size.

Hard copy: We can scan from photo prints, other printed materials and transparencies/slides.

Media


Please send your files by DVD, CD-ROM, at or using our Send us a file page (we can receive large files). No other media will be accepted. All materials must be virus-free.
