Get Into Print PHOTOGRAPHS. General Tips • Set up your photo by getting close to your subject. Pictures taken from a distance often lack the detail that is,necessary to show up well in the newspaper. If people are in the photo, focus on their faces; a full length shot is rarely necessary. • Choose a photo that is in focus and that frames the subject well. A photo that is too dark or is "fuzzy" will only be darker and fuzzier on newsprint, which is very porous paper, and will not be accepted. • Eacl photo must have an accompanying caption--- "cutline" in journalism terms. That caption should describe what is taking place in the picture. • Each person in the photo must be identified. Group photo identifications should be from left to right, starting with the front row. • Always include the name and a daytime telephone number for the person submitting the information• That way, if there is a question about the information (spelling of a name, identification of a person pictured, etc.), the issuecan be resolved quickly. • Do nol fax photos; the image cannot be reproduce. They may be mailed, dropped by our office or e-mailed. Mailed/Dropped Off Photos • Never send/drop off'a.n irreplaceable photograp While newspaper staffers are as careful as possible, photos may be damaged or lost, either in the office 0"i" in the mail. • Every effort will be made to return a photo which is accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope of the appropriate size. Once printed in the paper, other photos are placed in a box in the front office of the newspaper and may be picked up in a reasonable amount of time. • Don't tape, staple or otherwise affix a photo to anythingelse. *If you must write an identifier on the back of the photo, use a ball-pointpen, not a gel-writer or marker that will rub off on other pictures. E-Mailed Photos • When e-mailing a picture, send it as a high-resolution jpg. Do not embed photos into any Word documents. • If e-mailing directly from a digital camera, do 'not make adjustments to the image. • If e-mailing a scanned imag b, send it at least four inches wide, with a resolution of at least 300 dpi (dots per inch). • The best way to send the accompanying text is to include the wor.ds in the body of the e-mail, with the picture only as the attachment. The newspaper cannot accept Publisher, Wordpact or Wordperfect files. The Hinton News P 0 Drawer 1000 Hinton, WV 25951-1000 ¥
