For JAHC Gallery Artists

The JAHC Gallery Program is currently using Exhibbit to continue monthly exhibitions during the COVID-19 pandemic. Artists currently scheduled for a virtual exhibition should keep in mind the following when preparing artwork images:

  1. Images need to be sharply focused, evenly-lit, hi-resolution photographs, saved in un-compressed .jpg format.
  2. Make sure your camera is at 90 degrees to the artwork.
  3. Position the lights on either side of the artwork at 45 degree angles.
  4. Use Photoshop, or another utility, to crop the background out.
  5. To produce the best quality for detailed inspection, your images should be at least 2048 pixels in their longest dimension at 72 dpi.
  6. Make sure to save images at maximum quality.
