  Monitor Calibration
To ensure you get accurate and consistent photographic prints it is important to have your monitor calibrated correctly.

Ideally you should calibrate your monitor at least once a month to maintain consistent results. We recommend using the i1 DISPLAY PRO by X-Rite to calibrate your monitor to display colours according to the correct standards.

You can purchase the i1 DISPLAY PRO through Bond Imaging or alternatively, we have hardware on site for our clients to borrow for a small fee. If you are unsure about this process, please contact customer service to discuss. We can arrange for someone to come out and show you how to calibrate your system if required.

File Format
We will accept all file types (including PSD) but they will be converted into 8 Bits/Channel JPEG or TIFF file & RGB with a minimum of 200dpi for printing.

We also recommend keeping file names as short as possible (total limit of 20 characters) and please avoid using special characters i.e. ? " $ *

Colour Space
Ensure your files are set with sRGB, or Adobe 98 colour space.

File Conversion
We are able to convert any type of file formats into JPEG or TIFF for print output, whether it be RAW, Photoshop, illustrator, InDesign, PDF, png and anything in between.

  File Output  


We can proof your latest wedding or portrait shoot with our digital proofing service saving you valuable time to concentrate on what you do best, capturing beautiful images.

Files are batch corrected to have basic colour and density corrections applied to ensure consistent results throughout the entire order, ready for you to add your own personal style.
Your digital photographic proofs are then printed on quality Kodak Lustre paper with a choice of borders, edges and standard back printing.

Digital Proof Albums

The same batch proofing corrections are applied to your files and are then placed in a Digital Proof album which are available in 4 sizes using any of our standard album templates or your own customised template.
Options Available
