    showing WIP/finished work to a client

    Hey everyone. I have started to take on more jobs doing digital portraits, and was wondering what is the proper way for me to go about showing a client the finished product without sending them the 300dpi jpeg file?

    A small, web sized, pic, maybe with a watermark if you're particularly paranoid/the client hasn't paid yet?
    Also, when you say "the 300dpi jpeg file" do you mean you send a jpeg file for the client to print? At least save it in png, not jpeg.

    thanks tinybird. I'm moving over from many graphite, to doing just digital. so any advice is appreciated. I'm assuming the png file is better quality then jpeg? and is there any restrictions on where a client would be able to print?

    TIFF is actually the standard (non-compressed) print format, not JPEG.

    TIFF or PDF is the standard, not JPEG or PNG.

    Although many clients will accept high-quality jpegs (or even ask for them) since that's what they're used to getting from stock photo agencies. But yes, tiffs are almost always preferable now that transferring large files isn't an issue.
