Technical Specifications:

• Accepted file formats: PDF, JPG, TIFF, RAW, DNG, NEF, CR2, RW2, ARW.

• To allow for flexibility in formatting, full-sized image files are preferred. Too small of a file (anything less than 1 MB) will typically cause low-resolution quality (blurry and pixilated images) when the photo is cropped or printed at a larger size.

• Beware of sending photos taken directly from Facebook or Instagram, as these programs alter the quality and size of the photos in such a way that we can’t use them.

Due to constraints of memory cards and digital captures, digital cameras have techniques for making the image files small, allowing you to capture more pictures on each memory card. Many of these settings will make your pictures look great on the computer and the web, but are insufficient for printing properly in a magazine or NOLS publications. We want to have the highest quality pictures your camera can produce so we can use them for any possible project, print or digital. Set both the image size and quality as high as possible on your camera(s). Examples • To print an image at 8x10 inches (full page) we need the image to be approx. 2400x3000 pixels (7.2 mega pixel). • To print an image at 6x9 inches (half page) we need the image to be approx. 1800x2700 pixels (5 mega pixel). File Formats We can use TIFF or JPEG but prefer receiving RAW files.


TIFF: Tagged Image File Format, abbreviated TIFF or TIF, is a computer file format for storing raster graphics images, popular among graphic artists, the publishing industry, and photographers. ... The format was created by Aldus Corporation for use in desktop publishing. JPEG: Stands for “Joint Photographic Experts Group.” JPEG is a popular image file format. ... Still, the compression algorithm is lossy, meaning some image quality is lost during the compression process. RAW: A camera raw image file contains minimally processed data from the image sensor of either a digital camera, image scanner, or motion picture film scanner. Raw files are named so because they are not yet processed and therefore are not ready to be printed or edited with a bitmap graphics editor. Because Camera RAW files are uncompressed, they take up more space than typical JPEG images.
