Web Image Specifications
Resolution & Size
Images must be in digital format and should be submitted at 100% (same size for online publishing). It is highly recommended that images be created in 72 dpi at minimum, but 96 dpi is preferred.
PNG is preferred. TIF, JPG, GIF, EPS, PSD and AI are acceptable. For images saved in Illustrator (AI), please convert all text to outlines. For images saved in Photoshop (PSD), please flatten.
Color mode must be set to RGB for proper online publishing. If files are submitted using any other color mode, such as CMYK or Pantone, we may contact you and ask that you convert your image to the proper color mode. Conversion from one color standard to another can result in a color shift. This is why it’s best to start your image in the RGB format. Please adjust color settings to SWOP to ensure the most accurate digital to print translation.
LifeLines for Health is published on a biannual basis. Summer issues will be launched in June, and winter issues, in December. Please see Deadlines for Ad Close Dates and Ad Materials Due Dates. Scheduled launch dates are provided strictly for estimated purposes only. CHES makes no claims that actual publish dates will take place precisely on the scheduled launch dates.
