If your graphics files are very large you’ll want to take some steps to reduce their file size prior to submitting to IEEE.
- Make sure that all image layers are flattened, and your graphic is of the correct resolution (dpi) and dimensions (no larger than 7.16 x 8.8 inches, 182 x 220 millimeters, or 43 x 52 picas).
- If your file is still large, you can use a variety of compression methods in order to create a ZIP, SIT, or TAR.Z file:
Condensing your graphics could have a small negative effect on their final quality. IEEE suggests using this option only when absolutely necessary.
