Technical note on illustrations
Illustrations can be supplied as electronic files, of which TIFF files are best. Illustrations need to be at least 300dpi (dots per inch) at the size at which they are to be reproduced: i.e. a postage stamp image at 300 dpi is no good unless it is being reproduced at postage stamp size, as by the time it is blown up it will lose resolution. Images can be scaled down to fit, but not scaled up too much unless the resolution is very high.
Scans need to be gray scale or CMYK. If RGB scans are supplied we will convert them into CMYK for the printers, but the colour may alter a bit. So if the illustration needs to be accurate to an original photograph or painting, you must supply CMYK scans with the colour corrected to your satisfaction.
When submitting electronic files for your illustrations, please also submit a visual hard copy reference as well, clearly labelled with its figure number as well as a caption.
