The CUR Photography Department supports the efforts of Communications & University Relations.
Units that choose to use their own original photographs or stock photography should remember to use high-resolution files to insure image clarity. For print, high-resolution files measure at least the size you wish to use them at 300 ppi (pixels per inch) or higher. For web sites, 72 ppi can be used. If you are providing us with original photographs, it is best to give us the original camera file rather than an edited file. This allows more options with the image.
Always obtain written permission from the copyright holder (owner) of an image whenever using photographs or graphics that neither you nor the Office of Communications and University Relations provided. This rule also applies to images captured from other Web sites.
Recommendation: When producing general LSU pieces, stress academics, but also try to use a mix of images representing research, service-learning, the LSU landscape, Mike the Tiger, and athletics.
The Office of Communications and University Relations has a large database of campus photographs available (for a nominal charge). Contact Jim Zietz at firstname.lastname@example.org or Eddy Perez at email@example.com for more information.
