Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Graphic Design

Q: How should I take photos with my Mobile Phone for website?
A: Because PC monitors are wide, when taking pictures for websites, it is ALWAYS BEST to take photos in LANDSCAPE (wide) mode; unless we request "portrait" (up/down) mode for other areas of the site like a sidebar.

Q: What size image do you want for our website?
A: We prefer the largest, highest quality images you can give us. This usually means giving us the raw image from your camera. Larger images are better to shrink then having to enlarge small images which can get blurry or pixelated. You do not need to edit or crop the images. We will handle all the editing of images to best fit the area and look of the site.
