our reports apart from others? A little extra work goes a long way:
- Dots Per
Inch - dpi
Our files contain photos, sketches and maps which print out at 150 dpi
(as opposed to 72
What's the difference?
- 72 dpi (dots per
inch) - screen quality (web graphics)
this is the format all digital cameras save photos as
- 150 dpi (dots
per inch) - almost print quality
twice the clarity - great for glossy prints
- File Compression
Most digital cameras produce images too wide for 5" x 3" report
placement and too large in file size (200-300 kilobytes) for acceptable electronic
transfers. Photos in the report look nice, but make for
huge file sizes.
- Exact image dimensions
Adobe Photoshop gives total control over dimensions and density
- Instead of squeezing
photos that are actually 14" x 10.5" into a 5" x 3" mold,
we place images into your report that are formatted to exact specifications.
- These image are
also optimized for web transfer to substantially reduce the overall file size
of your report
such as A la Mode's Athena and Nova 5.5 have image manipulation tools for cropping
and compression, but not the same dimension or dpi (dots per inch) control.
Below is an example
of image dimension and file-size optimization for electronic transfer:
sized to fit this page exactly - 55 kilobytes
sized to fit this page exactly - watermarked - only 15 kilobytes
digital age, small file size is the key,
