I've had nothing but trouble with my jacket photo. It's the one on this page. I know you can't tell because it's so small but it's good and I like it. It was taken with a digital camera.
All day yesterday was spent back and forth to my editor and his assistant about this damn picture. It was the best one out of 53 and they wanted me to have another taken because the resolution had to be at least 300dpi. I was told the art department couldn't do anything with it. Yes, that art department.
They wanted it to be large and the resolution wouldn't allow that. I told them if it couldn't be fixed then I didn't need a picture on my jacket.
I couldn't believe they weren't capable of fixing it in Photoshop or some other program. Then I remembered my cousin Andy. He's a wiz at this stuff. So I sent him the picture, told him the problem and he fixed it.
I sent it to my editor and his assistant this morning. My editot said he would send it on to the art department. I await the verdict.
