Here is some information on how to send your files to me, and in which formats they should be. If any of this is confusing to you, just let me know & we’ll work it out together!
image sizes, formats, & resolution
Images should be in .gif, .jpg or .png format. Please send the largest size you have, and I’ll resize it for the site if necessary.
document sizes & formats
The most common formats for text documents are .txt (plain text), .rtf (rich text), and .doc or .docx (Word document). If your document is in some other format, just let us know, we can deal with most any type of text document.
File names should ideally not contain any spaces. For example, a file should be named “puppyphoto.jpg” or “puppy_photo.jpg” or “puppy-photo.jpg” rather than
