    a question about a contest guidelines..

    http://www.bandwmag.com/contest/index2.html
    the photos have to be black and white, of course..
    it says they have to be grayscale, 8-bit..
    but it also says they can be .jpg..

    now once a photo is in .jpg format, does it matter if before (when it was a PSD) it was in grayscale or not? I convert photos to b&w by going to hue/saturation and switching saturation to 0.. it's easier to edit that way (b/c like this afterwards I can fool around with levels, sharpening, etc..) so I have to convert to grayscale when I'm done editing before converting to .jpg? is it relevant/detectable whether or not image was grayscale or RGB BEFORE you optimized it to .jpg??

    I think you're worrying too much.

    I think once the final image is B+W, however that was achieved, you'll be good to go.

    You should be e-mailing bandwmag.com your queries though.

    thank you for your response..

    now images have to be 7 in wide, 300 ppi.. how do I leave 300 ppi resolution when converting to jpg? b/c image optimizer autom. changes resolution to 72 ppi..

    thank you..

    You're in Photoshop, right?

    Just go to File > Save As... and choose JPG from the list. That will save a JPG at the same size and resolution as the PSD you're working on.
