Photos on IDEFIX
As we share many visuals and icons on IDEFIX, naming conventions have been defined.
IDEFIX naming conventions
Photographers should submit visuals with file names in accordance with the following naming conventions. The file name consists of 6 parts, for example, photo number 001 from IDEFIX is used:
Name elements C, D, E and F are joined by a hyphen.
If more information is required, another suffix can be added to part E. As an example, ‘before’ and ‘after’ was added to the location/POI part of the name. Use the same principle for ‘day’ and ‘night’ photos taken from the same location. Note also that the numbers of these visuals must be incremental (+1) so that these are located next to each other in the database.
File types and quality
All visuals are to be provided as .JPG files. This is a uniform file type and is usable on all types of computer systems and programs. When using compression utilities to transform file types to JPG, the quality loss is negligible and still reduces the file size.
When saving files, remember that for print work (see “high resolution visuals”) the image option quality should be at least 8 when saving JPG files with e.g. Adobe Photoshop.
