Featured Images

For posts that will be featured in the home page banner original digital image should  be at least 1800 by 1280 pixels. Note that enlarging a digital image will not improve resolution on screen.

Continuous Tone Photographs

original digital size of image must be at least 900 x 1500 px (pixels) for a 3 x 5 image. Note that enlarging a smaller digital image will reduce, not improve, the resolution.

Line Art

Original digital image resolution needs to be at least 3,600 x 6,000 px for a 3 x 5 inch image. Again, note that enlarging a smaller digital image will reduce, not improve, the resolution.

Titles

Please include a title for table/graph/or image. This will appear with the graphic on the site and also be used for accessibility purposes for the visually impaired.
