| If you want to
submit images to existing items please use
the "submit info" link on the right side
of the item header. Then it's easier for
me to find the right item in the database.
Please name all the images with a clear
description. It's not easy for me if you
name them 1.jpg and 2.jpg. Remember to let
me know if I shall NOT use your name or
nick, if you for some reason wants to be
anonymous. I'd like for everyone to use
these new guidelines so that everything
looks a little more cohesive. The steps
below are pretty simple, so you should be
able to apply them to whatever graphics
editing program you prefer. For the best
result please don't scan cds and cd
sleeves with the jewelcases.
I like to scan at min. 200 dpi.
If the image is skew please rotate
it so it's as straight as possible.
Crop the image.
Please be sure that the height is
min 650 pixels (or min width 980
Save the image as a JPG (JPEG) with
some compression. This is a little
difficult to explain since each
program measures compression
differently, but use enough that the
image is a reasonable size (100-200
KB) and but still looks nice. I use
PhotoShop and a JPG compression
level of 8 usually produces pretty
good results. Sometimes level 9 or
10 gives visual better results,
especially if there is red
color in the image, so
please judge yourself.
Feel free to scan whatever additional
features or inserts you'd like. I can't
promise to use everything, but I'll
consider everything. As some of the
scans already listed are old and some
not in fantastic quality, you are more
than welcome to send me replacing scans
in better quality. The same goes with
the many scans that are from ebay. Thank
you for your help!
