DIGITAL IMAGE REQUIREMENTS
For film cameras
Do NOT submit images that were taken with compact camera! We ONLY accept images that were taken with 24x36mm SLR or medium format camera.
Accepted Scanners: Nikon Super Coolscan 5000 or better (Imacon Flextight, Drum Scanner…)
For digital cameras
Do NOT submit images that were taken with compact camera! We ONLY accept images that were taken with DSLR or medium format camera.
Accepted DSLR Cameras: Minimum 10 megapixels or higher with APS-C sized sensor or with Full Frame (24x36mm) sensor.
In-Camera File Format:
We strongly recommend you to shoot in RAW then convert it to .jpg or .jpeg; however we accept images files that are originally shot in Tiff or Jpeg.
Submission File Format:
Jpeg or Jpg files without layers at 8-bit depth saved using PC format or Eps for vectors!
Minimum 4 million pixels (4 Megapixels). Approximately 2500x1664 px.
Visco Images recommends that you shoot and post process your images in Adobe RGB 1998 (color space for prints) after that save as (…) and CONVERT it to sRGB IEC61966-2.1 (color space for the internet).
8 bits per channel.
All images must be rotated to the correct orientation. Switch OF (!!!) the auto image rotation function in your camera.
All images must be spotless, retouched and color corrected before submission. Images must be free of any visible imperfections like dust, hairs, scratches, and fringes (chromatic aberration caused by medium and low quality lens). Images will be rejected if they contain EXCESS grain/digital noise, individual pixels are apparent to the naked eye, unnatural color separation, or other signs of bad quality.
Do NOT compress your images at all. Set the .jpg quality to the maximum (12). This is the highest .jpg quality that comes with a large file size. Set the .jpg quality to 11 only in case of your file size is over 16MB. Too much compression can cause compression artifact. Compression artifact is, when the data compression of an image is resulting in a loss of clarity.
Sharpening carefully! Do NOT over sharpen your images!
Do Not Interpolate (Enlarge) at all!
Take a special care if you filter your images, especially when you apply a noise reduction filter. Overused noise reduction filter results a loss in fine details of the image.
File name must contain English capitals and/or numbers only!
