I am preparing a textbook for use at my school. Eventually, I might hand-draw all of the illustrations, but in the meantime, I will use photographs. Some of these photographs will fill 1/3 of the page. To save as much money as possible, I will use the campus print center to make copies of the book. They have black and white photocopy machines. Unfortunately, the print center claims that it is very difficult to photocopy photographs. They demonstrated this with a page and showed that the photos were almost entirely illegible, and the process used too much ink.
- How can I prepare all of my photographs, such that they will still have a consistent and legible appearance when photocopied?
- I have found that lithographs, such as this illustration of Wimel Poort will photocopy just fine and they still retain a lot of detail. Is there some way to prepare the photograph to have a similar texture?
