Sending us files

When sending us files, quality is much more important than the file size. See below for the file types we accept (just about anything).

You can use this form to send us files up to 2GB.

 

If you need to send us files over 2GB, or over fifty files at once, please contact us first at sales@bslprints.com

Success!

Admins will manually add your files to your old Lightfolio-based client portal.

You are also welcome to bring in USB drives with your images.

Once we have your image on file, you do not need to reupload it. We will keep it on file. Read more about How We Protect Your Files.

File Types

We can print from any of the following formats:

  • TIFF (compressed or uncompressed)

  • PDF

  • JPEG (.JPG, .JPEG, .jpeg-large)

  • HEIF

  • PNG

  • GIF

  • BMP

  • Photoshop (.PSD, .PBD)

  • Digital Negative (.DNG)

  • Krita (.KRA)

  • Gimp (.XCF)

  • Clip Studio Paint (.clip)

  • Affinity Photo

  • Affinity Designer

  • Affinity Publisher

  • Corel Painter (.RIFF)

  • SVG (generic or inkscape formats)

  • Illustrator (.AI)

  • OpenEXR (.EXR)

  • OpenRaster (.ORA)

  • Most cameras' RAW formats (.RAW, .ARW, .CR2, .ARF, .NEF, etc)

  • Probably other formats as well. Its usually safe to just send us what you have - if its in some obscure format let us know what program it is.

   We can print from any bit-depth and colorspace, so choose the largest ones available. 8-bit sRGB is fine for most things. 16-bit Adobe RGB (aRGB) or 16-bit ProPhoto RGB will generally get a better color range. Only use CMYK if you have to, its much smaller than the RGB color spaces and our printers can print well outside of the CMYK colorspace.

   We prefer to work in as high of quality as possible. Send us high-quality files regardless of the size of the file. In most cases, its best if you do not convert files to send to us, but rather send the files native to the image editing program you use or whatever format its in already.

   Internally, we photograph in uncompressed RAW format, process photos in 32-bit ProPhoto colorspace, convert to 16-bit ProPhoto or aRGB for printing, and store images in uncompressed TIFF and PSD formats so that we never loose any resolution or color information on our end.
