In order for us to provide consistent quality results from your digital image files, we need to create some guidelines by which files are created and organized prior to delivery to our lab. By following these standards, your order will not only be completed in a more timely manner, but in many cases at a lesser cost to you.
We are able to print from Compact Flash, Micro Drives, Smart Media, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Duo and Pro, XD, SD, Mini-SD, MMC, RS-MMC, Trans Flash, Mini CD and Floppy.
CDs, DVDs and USB Drives with Organized File Folders (OFF System):
The following system is intended only for professional sports and event photographers who need prints from a large volume of files. Files delivered on CD, DVD, USB, or sent online and organized in the following manner will receive discounted print pricing if all criteria are met:
Please do not use iPhoto CDs to deliver files to us. Apples file organizing and sharing program called iPhoto creates multiple copies and thumbnail images in multiple folders and subfolders. Rather, select your image files and burn them to a CD with conventional CD writing software.
We accept CDs, DVDs , ZIP 100/250 (PC & Mac), all USB drives, and files sent to us through WeTransfer.com (preferred), Drop Box, Hightail, or http://transferbigfiles.com. All media will be subjected to a virus scan before being accepted.
If you are using a point and shoot digital camera, we suggest that you do not try to adjust the color or density of your images. We look at and correct each photo as we are printing them. If you are using a digital SLR camera, we ask that you shoot your images in the sRGB color space, as this is native to all digital cameras and is the color space that our digital printers are calibrated. If you shoot raw files and convert them in Photoshop, we advise leaving them in the sRGB color space instead of converting them to Adobe RGB.
Be aware that if your monitor is not color balanced, the files seen on our monitors and the resulting prints may not match your monitor. We have two suggestions that will help:
1) Free and simple . Ask for our sample print, then compare the print to the image below. Adjust your monitor?with the RGB color controls, brightness controls and contrast controls by eye. This is better than nothing.
2) Better and accurate . Purchase a monitor calibration spyder such as the ones sold by Datacolor. You can accurately balance all of your monitors: CRT, LCD and laptops.
