ImageFiles
Images sent in electronic form should be in a commonly used format.  JPEG, compressed TIFF, or Adobe PDF formats are preferred. Black and white images of 300dpi are sufficient for submission. Please do not send files in Finale or other music notation programs for the initial submission.  If you are producing examples in Finale, note that it allows you to export images in a variety of formats, including JPEG and TIFF, and to use the Graphics Tool to select examples and export them.  The resulting lower quality is suitable for the initial review process.
