  • Image Files on Thumb Drive/DVD -A print will be made on a prepared gel skin that will be prepped by the students for printing. The students will need to bring a digital image (the more contrast, the better is requested for visibility once printed). This digital image needs to be able to fit on a 8.5”x11” regular sized piece of paper. The image must be 300dpi or better (higher) and brought in on a thumb drive or DVD. Crop to what you think is applicable. Remember that you can cut your printed image to a smaller size if needed. Also remember that a larger image can be made smaller digitally but your original can not be made larger without dramatic quality and/or pixelation problems. If the image is to be sold, it must be an image of your own. If the image is for experimental purposes, the image can be of any means. Selling a copyrighted image of somebody else’s design is illegal. An ethical and monetary offense.
