Regarding photos from digital cameras
Please send me the original full resolution images
as JPEG email attachments
at minimum size of 1800 pixels (long axis) or larger if possible.
High grade JPEG (8 - 10) are acceptable.
Kindly identify who is in each photo,
date, location and write any comments you would like printed in the caption.
you would like to "snailmail" me a CD or DVD with the images instead,
please email me for my mailing address.
Regarding photos from film cameras
Please have your negatives or slides scanned in
a film scanner and send the full resolution images to me as JPEG
attachments to an email.
Old photos of you, family (siblings,
grandchildren, family portrait), Hampton or Mumford Schools and
neighborhood are encouraged and will be used on this website. It is
best to get as close to the original as possible. This means digital
film scans of the original negatives or slides. However, most of us
only have prints which should be scanned in a flatbed scanner. You
can use your own scanner (e.g. Canon, Microtek, Epson or BenQ usually cost
about $90 - $300) or you can have a professional scan done from a digital
service, camera store or Kinko's.
For 8 X 10 inch or larger prints I suggest flatbed scans at 300 - 400 dpi
resolution, 24 bit RGB color and output as a TIFF file. For smaller
prints like snap-shots, I usually scan at a higher 600 dpi resolution.
Please do not make low resolution scans of these priceless photos!!
Also, if the photo is damaged it should still be scanned and sent in as I
sometimes can repair them digitally with Adobe Photoshop.

fonts and single spacing. For the images, do not imbed them in a
Word Document. Instead simply attach them to the email.
