What is image resolution?
Resolution refers to the number of dots per inch (dpi), or the amount of detail the image has. Most documents should be at least 200 dpi for the final print size. Higher resolution means a more detailed image, and larger file size. I may provide the file in a zip folder and supply a link to download.

What file formats do you need?
I can provide these file formats:
Image formats: GIF Image (.gif), JPEG Image (.jpg), Photoshop (.psd), PNG Image (.png), TIFF Image (.tif or .tiff)
Adobe Acrobat Document (.pdf)
Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 Document (.ppt)
Microsoft Word 2010 Document (.doc), Rich-text formatted (.rtf). Pages document (.pages)

Why Aspect Ratio matters?
The aspect ratio of your image can be determined by dividing the image’s width by its height. If your image’s aspect ratio is not equal to the aspect ratio of our documents, your image may appear distorted when it is scaled to fit. For instance if you are supplying a rectangular photo and asking a square label, your image will be cropped for the label.

Using Images from the Web
If you found images on the web, they are typically at a resolution of 72-dpi or lower. This resolution is much too low for quality printing. In addition, most images on the web are protected by copyright laws. For these reasons, I do not recommend using images from the web. I can offer stock images from my own library. You might also provide me your purchased images or your own photos at high resoluion to use for your graphic work.

Explanation of CMYK and RGB
CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) are the colors used in the printing process, whereas RGB (Red, Green and Blue) are the colors used by screen displays such as your monitor. JPEG files are almostalways in RGB. Your print ready document will be created in CMYK mode so that the colors that you see on the screen most closely match the final printed product. Only photos ( such as large posters, or postcards) might be created in RGB. Be aware many of the bright values produced by your monitor cannot be reproduced in print.

Using Fonts on printable files
Text can embedded in your pdf file. However PC and Mac computers show fonts slightly different. If the file is ppt or keynotes, you should tell me what version Windows or Mac you are using, so I can choose suitable fonts for your project which will display correctly. If you are going to show your graphic file on the web here is the standard list of “ Web-safe ” fonts. Keep in mind  fonts are limited on the web.
You may choose any Google Web Fonts however. www.google.com/webfonts/.
Google web fonts can be used on a blog or any website freely, and it will will display correctly on the browsers. You can search the font on the website, see how it looks then decide to use on your site or graphic project.
