  • The images need a resolution of 300 DPI or better and must be shot originally in color.
  • Contributors will be asked to give ASNT copyright to publish the photographs (contributors will be credited in the book.)
  • Descriptions are very important. What is the component and what is it made of? What technique or stage in the inspection process is depicted? (If scale is wanted, it may be indicated in the caption or by including a metric ruler or an object such as a pencil or US coin in the photo.)
