Delivery

Manna-Burgess Photography can provide text and photographs in digital or conventional form. The advantages of digital are many. You can edit both text and images immediately upon receiving them. You can try all of the images, in any order or combination, in your layout. You are not responsible for original transparencies. There is no danger of transparencies being lost or damaged in shipment.

Rapid Delivery of Event Coverage

By Manna-Burgess Photography

Generally we can get digital images to you within a few hours of taking photographs at an event. The images are of low to medium resolution. Images are transmitted as e-mail or using FTP. These transmission methods prohibit the use of high resolution files. Caption material is included. Contact us for details as the event location has a definite impact on the delivery time.

Digital Delivery of Editorial Photographs

By Manna-Burgess Photography

Our work is done on the PC platform. Transparencies are scanned in hi-res and output to CD in the TIFF format. The TIFF format is quite universal. Some people tell us they can use CD’s made on a PC in their Mac. We cannot and do not guarantee compatibility with the Mac platform. You have to depend on your experience with your hardware and software in making your decision on this matter. High resolution pictures have to be sent on CD. File sizes run approximately 18M to 22M per picture. Transmission time by FTP is prohibitive, e-mail has about a 1M limit. Low resolution pictures can be sent by e-mail, either as attachments or in the e-mail. Lo-res pictures are only good for viewing or use on newsprint. CD’s contain a maximum of 20 pictures and include lo-res thumbnails with captions that open in your browser. These lo-res thumbnails can be used in preliminary layouts. They load and move much faster than the hi-res images. There is a small charge for the time necessary to produce a CD as it is labor intensive. Each image is tweaked to closely match the original image.

A big advantage of digital delivery is that you are not responsible for loss or damage and do not have to return the media.

Conventional delivery consists of transparancies with captions on the mounts. The transparencies are protected in viewable sleeves. They are shipped insured by a shipper that provides tracking. You are required to return the originals in excellent condition by the same means within a reasonable amount of time at your expense.

Digital Delivery of Text

By Manna-Burgess Photography

Our work is done on the PC platform. Microsoft Works word processing is used for text material. Word processing files are sent as Microsoft Works word processing files for PC. Text can also be sent as text files that will open in the Windows Notepad or Windows Wordpad. The text can then be copied and pasted into your word processing program. Results vary. We cannot and do not guarantee compatibility with the Mac platform or other PC word processors. You have to depend on your experience with your hardware and software in making your decision on this matter. Manuscripts and captions can be sent as attachments to e-mail. This often results in formatting problems and problems transferring into your word processor. This does eliminate the PC vs. Mac problem as long as you are using Microsoft Works or a compatible word processor. The same word processor files can be sent on disk for PC.
