Grayscale Pictures

If you want to use a pure gray scale image in your photo product, you should prepare it accordingly.

  • Your image should have the color space sRGB or Adobe RGB (1998), please do not send us pictures in the color space "Gray Gamma X.X"
  • If your images are in the color space Gray Gamma, please convert the image to sRGB, as described below
  • Please ensure that the color values ​​in your black and white image are consistent in the color space sRGB

Example: A pure white should have the color values R 255 G 255 B 255. A medium gray should have the color values R 150 G 150 B 150. If you have a deviation, such as R 150 G 152 B 151, there may be color blemishes in the production of your photo.
