Preparing picture files
If you have a Photoshop or other image editing software, please use
them to edit your images instead of your digital camera software.
How to save images for
Picture resolution, size and format are 3 major elements that deal with image
For Internet use, you set your picture resolution for 74 pixels
which is the best resolution displays on the computer monitors. Since we have an enlarged image page, your picture size could be as large as width
1800 and more. However, standard picture size that we recommend is width 500. We use the JPEG format because it saves images in a small file size when an image has many colors. When you save your picture, you can select JPEG format. Check SAVE A COPY from the file menu if you can't find the JPEG format option when you save the file in the software you are using.

How to check the
size of an image file.
- When you save your picture, you can
select JPEG format. Check SAVE A COPY from the file
menu if you can't find the JPEG format option when you
save the file in the software you are using.
The file size of your image has to be
- PC - From your Windows Explorer or
Windows NT Explorer, you can see the size of all your
files. If you cannot see the size, click on the View
menu on the top of your Windows Explorer and mark
Details. (Note that the file size reported by
PhotoShop is always larger than the actual file size.)
- Mac - The file sizes reported by your
Mac are always larger than actual size, even those
reported from the Get Info on File menu. The only
way to check the real size is save the files on a
floppy diskette and check from the floppy diskette.
You don't have to check all the file
sizes. If you succeed in making several images
under 200k, use the same method to save your other
images. If the size of your image is bigger than 200k, the
database will give you an error message when you upload
You still have a problem with uploading your images, please email our
tech support with your Ad number and picture files. We will upload pictures for you.
Updating list and Ad information

Checking Pricing & Specs (Descriptions):
There are significant commercial benefits for a dealer to be known as a source of accurate information. Buyers trust accurate written specs and price information and buy from parties who have the technical know-how to provide them. As labmakers.com increases its membership, its database will grow richer in detail and deeper in coverage.
If you are a dealer or a manufacturer, you are encouraged to participate in this
advantage. Simply provide thorough and accurate information, and advertise your company's expertise on the equipment with a company banner on the same page. You will benefit from increased visibility and customer contacts.
