Map Conditions: Our maps come from the US Library of Congress Geography and Map Division’s historical maps. And with them come all the bumps and lumps of time. We have done minimal editing of these files. We are preferring to keep them as real as possible. The main cleaning up is removing the date stamps and other markings that have been put on overtime. We have kept the wonderful look and feel of an antique map. So some have stains and mold markings, tears, and rips. They aren’t perfect, that is why we love em.
File Format: Our digital images come in RGB JPG formats in two resolutions, 300 dpi, and 72 dpi. The high res images range in size from 10” to 18” wide, an average of around 40mb, the 72 dpi images are 10” wide and average around 1.3mb. JPG maps can be edited and customized in pretty much any bitmap photo drawing programs such as Adobe Photoshop, and Paint Brush. JPG maps also work well with graphic and presentation programs like Adobe In-Design, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Word.
The files have been broken down by area with High and Lo-Res jpg antique maps in each file. The Bible Maps are in various resolutions.
