EARTHSHOTS is published on a hybrid CD-ROM disc for PC/Unix (ISO 9660) or Macintosh (HFS
format) computers. Each volume comes in bitmap format images can be opened by
applications that can open or import JPEG format files from CD-ROM, typically
Adobe Photoshop and many more. The album pack includes CD-ROM, illustrated user guide on
disc, warranty and registration card, and license agreement.
EARTHSHOTS collection contains 250 JPEG images. The images are
fully compatible with MOUNTAIN HIGH MAP - FRONTIERS, which can be used to
selectively add overlays for country borders, country names, city locations, city
names, rivers, river names, latitude and longitude, linear scales, individual countries and many more features.
FRONTIERS, provides unparalleled flexibility and
customizing capability with a wide range of matching cartographic features. The above
example shows an EarthShots image, before and after the Frontiers TIFF mask has been used in a Photoshop channel to mask out the ocean floor and apply a continuous tone color. In fact the additional disc which may be purchased as the "EarthShots + Frontiers Combo" allows complete customization, allowing any of the 250 EarthShots images to cut and pasted with any other image from the series, taking for example the ocean texture from one image and dropping it on to another image.
The CD-ROM data occupies the full capacity of 650 Mbytes divided for both
PC/Unix (ISO 9660) and Macintosh (HFS) computers. The images are high resolution 300 dpi, 24-bit RGB color, and are typically sized at 2569 x 1726 pixels in horizontal and vertical axis giving file sizes of approximately 12.7 Mbytes in RGB or 17 Mbytes ifconverted to CMYK. The images are compressed using highest quality JPEG to a file size of 0.5 to 3 Mbytes on disc, and decompress transparently into most applications. Image resolution is optimized to support high quality imagesetter output at full-page size.
