Digitizing Illustrations For Publication?:
As a writer/photographer of nonfiction magazine articles, I often include illustrations with submissions. In pre-digital days, these were color 35mmís or b/w 8x10 glossy prints.
With digital now the way to go, which electronic format is best for illustrations submitted for publication Ö JPG, PDF, TIF? How do these translate to minimal dpi, pixels, etc Ö and what do these terms really mean?
Lastly, should writer/photographers now digitize existing b/w prints and negatives?
