What is a JPG file and
why would I want one?
You get free JPG files of your layout with each custom print they buy. You may
also order just the JPG files for only $2.95. Getting the JPG file means you can download printable,
high-resolution images—one of the left page, one of the right page—as well as a
lower resolution thumbnail image of your entire layout. Use the hi-resolution
images to print your layout now or in the future, or burn them to a CD to keep
in your archive. The thumbnail is a great way to electronically share your
beautiful layout with everyone—email it to a friend far away, post it on your
Facebook wall, put it on your blog—the options are endless!
