on acceptable file formats:
Our printers are able to accept electronic versions of drawings and photographic
images submitted for publication.
If you can send an electronic version, please feel free to do so. Electronic
images save us money that we would otherwise have to pay for scanning
but the originals help us to ensure that colour reproduction is accurate.
If you are not able to send electronic images (perhaps you do not have
access to a scanner) this is not a problem. Just send the original photo/slide
and leave it to us.
Images should be large, clear and have good contrast - what you may consider

Other formats may be acceptable - please contact us if you are unable
to send one of the preferred formats.
