client tips

Session galleries will contain two folders of your portraits files. Please back up these files in multiple places as soon as possible. USBs & hard drives often fail and having your files in multiple places can safeguard against losing your files.

POSTING ON SOCIAL MEDIA: If you wish to post images on the internet, please use the “Social Media Share” folder. These images are sized and sharpened to correct standards for uploading to Facebook, etc. Please credit Jocelyn Espejo Photography and tag on Instagram @jocelynjespejo or on Facebook @jocelynespejophotography when sharing online. Do NOT choose to have Facebook alter your images upon uploading as this will change your image in an unfavorable way.


Please use the “High Resolution File” folder containing your high res files for prints and other products.

  • CROPPING: Be aware that different sizes you choose to print will crop your images differently, (ie: an 8×10 will ‘chop’ off more than a 4×6 as the original image is in the 2:3 ratio) and some labs will take the liberty of cropping themselves if you do not do so beforehand or while uploading.

  • WHERE NOT TO PRINT: I strongly discourage the use of drugstore or discount internet photo labs. (Walgreens, Walmart, Target, Shutterfly, Snapfish, etc.) These utilize printing machines that make automatic color and contrast adjustments to images, causing your print to look vastly different than on screen.

  • WHERE TO PRINT: Color quality can only be guaranteed by purchasing fine art prints & albums through me as my monitor is carefully calibrated to match my professional labs.  I can help you with all of your print needs.  I can design a wall gallery for you with framed pictures or canvas wall art.  I can also design albums, or prints for frames.  However I also have a list of options you can purchase through that provide wonderful consumer grade products.
