  3. 3. PORTFOLIO Uploading/Downloading InstructionsIn an effort to help standardize and streamline the centralization of our digital assets, you need to follow theguidelines below before uploading images to the Portfolio server.1. File names – Keep names short and use underscores for spaces. Always include the file (.jpg). Never use uncommon characters like /, , or ~ as it may create conflicts. Include photographer initials before file number. Examples: JobFair_PR6723, EXPO_CL4673, Gallery_NLV49282. File formats – Always save your work in the jpg format with maximum quality.3. File resolution – 300dpi (absolutely NO interpolation, we need quality, not quantity).4. Minimum file size – 4” x 6” (1200ppi x 1800ppi) at 300 dpi *Note: 4” x 6” at 300 dpi = 16” x 25” at 72 dpi5. File mode – RGB6. Folder Categories – We have standardized the folder categories at the root level of the Portfolio server and ask you to be descriptive, but concise, when creating sub-folder categories, as this is one way Portfolio generates keywords. Example: Event_Name_090209pr, i.e. Board_Meeting_090217pr, Job_Fair_090116cl7. Edit – Please edit your work before uploading. This will minimize the amount of storage space needed, enhance consistency and promote quality, since only the best of the selection gets exposed.8. Metadata – There are two options on how to get your metadata embedded in your images: Using Portfolio - This is the recommended option to assure consistency and is done once the images are cataloged in Portfolio. Using third party software - You may use Lightroom, Bridge, Aperture or even Photoshop for your Metadata needs. If this is your preference, the Metadata needs to be done BEFORE you upload your images to the Porfolio server. Refer to the following table for Portfolio’s Extracting/Embedding Metadata settings: Portfolio Custom Field* Bridge LightRoom Photoshop file info _People in photo XMP-Headline Headline Headline _Event name XMP-Description Caption Description _Photographer XMP-Copyright Copyright Description _Campus XMP-Source Source Source * All custom fields have a maximum of 250 characters
