Cropping and Orientation
Digital. Color graphics will be used in the digital publication of the paper at no additional charge to the authors.
Print. In print proceedings, all graphics will appear in black and white unless authors agree to pay for the color printing costs. Click here to review the Publication Charges. Prior to submission for print publication, authors should make sure that the color graphics will reproduce well in black and white. The easiest way to do this is to convert any color graphics to grayscale to see how they will appear in black and white. If the graphic does not convert well to black and white (i.e., the grayscale version does not contain sufficiently different levels of gray), the graphic needs to be revised prior to submission.
Fonts. The appropriate font(s) should be used when labeling your figures.
NOTE TO MICROSOFT OFFICE USERS (or similar)
If you are having a problem sizing your graphic(s) for final publication, try inserting your graphic(s) in a table. Using a table will help control the positioning and size of your images.
