Please advise if you require files other than JPEG. Please note that exact specifications are required prior to saving digital files to CD or DVD.

Digital capture images are provided at approximately RGB file size @ 300dpi, (saved as JPEG or TIFF – Please specify ), based on my experience, I believe that this would be suitable for your requirements as specified within your brief, but the responsibility for the choice of image capture remains with the client.
