Posted By: 


Step 1. Complete the Student Work Cataloging Form (Note: Log In Required)

Step 2.  Complete the Release and Hold Harmless Form (Note: Log In ID Required)

Step 3.  Gather up digital files and photography.
A.  Export full layout boards to .pdf at the “high quality print” setting.  

B.  Extract key, or essential, images as individual files:
-  For the web:  Key images should be jpegs or pngs saved for web at maximum 1920x1080 pixels, 72 pixels per inch (ppi).  Please provide a caption for each image.
-  For publication:  Vector line drawings and graphics should remain vector files (.ai or .eps), and should also be saved to .pdf.  Make sure to include all linked files by embedding images and fonts.   Photoshop documents should be flattened and saved as .tif files.  Photographs (including model photos) and scanned images should also be saved as .tif files, and [if possible] no images should be smaller than 9x12 inches at 300 ppi (2700x3600 pixels).

C.  Include animations in Quicktime MPEG-4 (.mov or .mp4) format.  

Step 4.  Organize your files. 
A.  Files should be clearly labeled and arranged into titled folders (e.g. “Final Boards,” “Plans,” “Model Photographs,” “Renderings,” “Key Images”). 
B.  Discs should be labeled with student name, title of thesis, course name, faculty name, and date.  

Step 5.  Burn files to disc (and deliver to Laurie Zazenski) or upload and share files using YouSendIt, WeTransfer, Dropbox, Box, etc.  Note that it's important to send a link to a folder of files.  If you need to send files via Google Drive, please zip them up first.  Here are instructions for sending links via Dropbox.
