Sending your images electronically

In order to send your images electronically either by email or CD or by visiting our contact page where you can upload your electronic image you must firstly have it scanned. We recommend a scan output resolution of somewhere between 300dpi/ppi and 600dpi/ppi and then save the image in jpeg format with minimal compression or 100% quality. The resolution really depends on the amount of detail you wish to capture. If the image you are scanning is less than 4x6, increase the physical size of the picture to 150%. If your scanner does not let you set the exact resolution, you may be able to increase the resolution of an image by selecting either higher "resolution" or "quality" when you save the image.
