File Guidelines

Speedway Custom Photo Lab offers the most extensive choices in the area for printing your digital work. You may bring your ready-to-print files on CD, DVD, ZIP, FLOPPY, or CAMERA FLASH CARD of any kind, IBM MICRO-DRIVE, or USB FLASH MEMORY DEVICES. Files may be formatted for PC or MAC. Please use the following guidelines when processing your files for output.

   1. If you use Direct CD to drag and drop files to a recordable CD or CD-RW, finalize the disc, not just the session, as *     the disc may be unreadable on a computer other than your own.
   2. Files on floppy disc may be too small (low resolution) to print high-quality pictures.
   3. Photos may be submitted as JPEG or TIFF files. Display graphics are best submitted as hi res PDF or EPS.

If you want to send us files via the internet you can email files up to 10MB to spdwyphoto@aol.com
Files over 10MB please use www.yousendit.com it's easy and transfers are free for files less than 100MB.
