  PHOTO INFORMATION
Photos can be printed in color or black & white for the same price. The Springfield News-Leader suggests photos with good contrast for the best reproduction. Please note: A horizontal photo may appear bigger than a vertical photo because it will take up the full column width, however, both horizontal and vertical photos will have the same depth. The Springfield News-Leader crops photos to feature a headshot of the couple. Full-length photos can be printed in multi-column announcements.
