Product Description

PhotoDisc Illustration Image Art CD- The Signature Series 39: Evocative Hands By Mel Curtis.

A gold watch lying in the palm of a wrinkled hand speaks of the wisdom that comes with time passing. A slim hand with tapered fingers drawing back a curtain evokes an air of mystery. Gloved hands resting on the handle of a gardening tool express satisfaction with a job well done. Mel Curtis, the award-winning photographer who brought us Emotions and Expressions, uses his genius to show that hands can reveal as much aout people as faces do.

    File Specifications

    Why RGB Files are Preferable to CMYK Files
    Our images are saved in RGB because they are meant to be as versatile as possible for the end user. When an RGB image is converted to CMYK, several factors must be taken into consideration, including paper stock, 4-colour film output device, layout software programs used, types of inks used and special effects intended by you, the designer. We don't want to make these decisions for you. We would rather you have the control in deciding exactly how your images are converted to CMYK.

    Technical Specifications - Vector Files

    Many Artville illustrations are produced digitally using vector illustration software and can be fully scaled within layout applications and edited within vector image editing programs.
    Macintosh and PC: Adobe? Illustrator? EPS format, the enclosed browser displays the Illustrator EPS files.

    Technical Specifications - Bitmap Files

    Each image is drum-scanned and sa ved in RGB. Each piece of artwork undergoes rigorous colour correction to ensure a flawless digital image that matches the original's colour and can be displayed accurately or reproduced in any ICC-compliant colour system.

    File Sizes

    Each file is saved with three resolutions. In general, large resolution files are between 28 and 35MB to accommodate a letter- sized bleed image at 300 dpi. The medium resolution files are exactly one-half as wide and tall as their large size counterparts, also at 300 dpi. The small resolution files are the same print dimensions as the medium resolution files, but at 72 dpi for position-only placement.

    File Compression

    Because the high-resolution images are saved as JPEG images, it is important to note a few important features of JPEG compression. While no image degradation is noticeable after a single compression-decompression cycle, subsequent compressions will begin to soften and otherwise degrade the image integrity. To preserve optimum image quality, it is important to never re-save the images in JPEG format. Depending on the target application and operating system, it is best to save the high-resolution images as TIFF, EPS or another format as either uncompressed files or files employing "lossless" compression such as LZW compression.
