You can also indicate different combinations like this '30x40 Window_by5' ('30x40' being the print size, on 'Window display material' and '5' prints of each image. to be printed)
(A good house keeping policy is type the shorter size first, eg 5x7 not 7x5)
Avoid illegal characters in the file name such as * ! ? # % \ | / " < > : ' . ,
4. Images which fail to load, in the wrong colour space, wrong Mode, wrong bit size, etc. will either be printed as is or will be returned uncompleted. We do not check images prior to printing unless requested. Minimum file opening fee of $5 will apply.
*Please note: cmyk, greyscale, and 16 bits per channel can cause our machine to crash. We then need to search for the problem file to discover what caused the crash and re-initialise the machine costing 20 minutes downtime. These image files may incur the $5 minimum file opening fee.
Additional Notes:DO NOT SUBMIT FILES IN GRAYSCALE (Greyscale is not a valid RGB image format.) see colour space
Hint: To convert an image to B&W use desaturate. Desaturate maintains the full 8 bits over 3 channels while Greyscale is a single 8 bit channel.
