I've run into a problem that hasn't ever happened with sending in hi-res photos to buyers. Southwest Airlines wants to purchase 3 of my shots for their 2011 calendar. I have done business with them before on other calendars...and never had this problem.

They want the photos at 300 dpi or greater. I reworked the first two shots, got them to 300, emailed them and there was no problem. However, on the 3rd shot, when I size it at 300 dpi, it ends up being so large (28MB or so) that I can't email it. The limit is 25 MB on the email services I use.

I must be making some fundamental error, but it beats me what I'm doing wrong or what the solution is. Southwest needs the photo by tomorrow. Any ideas on how to resolve this?

I thank you in advance.

A few years ago I had the same problem getting my files to SWA for calendar use..

I ended up using a large file upload site and then emailed Wn the location..

I think this was the site I used...but there are many..

Ok, first off, if you're using Photoshop or other similar program.

When you change the DPI setting, are you also selecting "re-sample" the image? If you are, then don't. You want to change the resolution DPI but not re-sample the image.
If you're simply over-sampling the image to get a number of 300 DPI, then really, you're fooling yourself as you are NOT getting any additional quality or resolution.

If they tell you that they need the image in "300dpi" and they don't give you the size they want it, its like going to buy a door which is "10mm per 1cm" tall. Something is missing there!
