For new and existing suppliers, please note our technical, editorial and stock & archive submission guidelines below.
Techy stuff - the three 'F's
File size, format & filenames
Please send the maximum file size from the camera, in JPG format, compressed at Photoshop Level 8 or 9 (low compression, high quality). Please do not send TIFF, PSD or RAW/NEF/CR2 files, please.
Set your camera's Colour Space to sRGB and supply all images in RGB mode.
Please rotate images to the correct orientation for viewing.
If scanning from your film archive, files should ideally be around 40 - 60 MB for 35mm and 60 - 80 MB for medium format.
Safe characters for filenames are: a-z 0-9 - (minus sign) _ (that's an underscore)
Punctuation characters like + / , \ | = * ! ? " ' ` are often reserved characters on various operating systems and should be avoided.
