Steps to reproduce
Photoshop allows for a nondestructive editing of images, thus images from spreads were uploaded as photoshop files (.psd). The uploaded files contain both the raw image as well as all the layers specifying each visual improvement used. We used photoshop's adjustment layers for contrast, brightness, etc in order to improve visibility.
