PRO TIP #1
Send in photos. Press releases and other information sent are more attention-grabbing if they are accompanied by great, high-resolution pictures. Remember to send complete caption and identification information for each photo.
WHAT IS HIGH RES?
The MBJ requires photos to be 300 dpi (dots per inch) resolution. If you’re unsure how to check an image’s resolution on your computer, just look at the size of the photo/image file. A high-resolution photo should be close to 1MB in file size (and may be a good bit bigger). If the photo is just 100KB (or less) or even 500KB, it’s probably low-resolution and won’t print properly.
