2. SLIDE FILE SPECIFICATIONS

Slides may be created with any third-party graphic software, including Adobe Photoshop® and Corel Paint Shop®, as long as each is saved in the JPEG (.jpg) file format. When creating slides, keep in mind that PC monitors utilize a different pixel shape than television monitors. To prevent slides from appearing stretched when translated from a PC to a TV, refer to the resolution information below.

• Recommended slide resolutions (pixels)

Depending on your display requirements, slides may be created in four different sizes. Slides containing pictures and graphics should be created in a resolution of 720 x 540, 800 x 600, or 640 x 480 pixels. For slides containing only text or that are not susceptible to aspect distortion (such as a solid background), use a resolution of 720 x 480 pixels.

• Save slides as JPEG (.jpg) files. Slide filenames may contain up to 27 characters (no spaces) in addition to the required ".jpg" extension.

• If Photoshop is used to create a slide, ensure the color "ICC Profile" option is not selected when the slide is saved or a black screen will be displayed on air instead of your slide's graphics/text.
