Size / Resolution
All pictures are printed in black & white.
JPEGs must be 300dpi at actual size or greater.
The key phrase is "at actual size." If the image needs to print at 4x5 inches, for example, then the image needs to be 300 dpi at 4x5 inches.
Check size using image editing software such as Adobe Photoshop.
Check out the pixel dimensions (on a Mac, go to "Get Info" for a JPG or TIF file, and look under the "More Info" tab. There you'll see something like "Dimensions: 1239 x 1113." Divide each number by 300 to see what size this photo will print as: 4.13 x 3.71 inches). Your image needs to be about this measurement so the dpi resolution must be in this measurement range.
NO IMAGES UNDER 300dpi at actual size of under 3x3 WILL BE ACCEPTED
FILM GRABS MUST BE SENT TO EDITOR FOR APPROVAL
