Photography Guidelines

Print Resolution

For all printed materials, images should have an actual resolution of 300 PPI, and an effective resolution of at least 300 PPI, at a maximum of 100% scale. These values can be checked in the Link Info menu of the Links panel in Adobe InDesign.

Common Treatments

In some instances, when the University does not have control over the source images, it will be necessary to treat a collection of images in a common way to make sure they fit together as a family. In these instances, images should be treated in black and white, and should be adjusted individually to match contrast and value as closely as possible.


When photographing, take both vertical and horizontal images of the subject to allow for more usage options.
