- Digital Images and Figures
5.1 Image files should be named as a number without space, special alphabets and saved as a TIFF (.tif). Do not save the files from Microsoft Power Point due to low resolution. Moreover, all panels should be in a single file. Line drawings should be of high resolution and high contrast.

5.2.2 Only photographic image should be at a minimum of 300 dpi.
5.2.3 Only line art should be at a minimum of 1,000 dpi.
5.3 Black and white halftone artwork should be saved in the grayscale mode, and color artwork should be saved in the RGB mode to be displayed online. The RGB mode will switch to the CMYK mode for publication creating a slight change of color. Therefore, images and figures should be checked in the CMYK mode. If authors have color images and figures to be adopted, the authors have to pay for the additional cost.
