Image area for ads is 4.5" x 7.25". The page itself is 5.5"x8.5". But we do not take ads that "bleed" out of the image area. There is an extra cost and extra time for bleeds.
Do not send 8.5x11 ads done in Word. They will not shrink down in proportion to a catalog page.
When you shrink 7.5" width down to 4.5" width, it makes the height very short on the page. If someone wants to build their ad in Word, use the LEGAL template rather than the LETTER. then when it shrinks down, it will be in proportion.
Photos should be 300 pixels/inch or better. Screen shots and photos from a web page do not reproduce well.
I prefer camera ready ads to be high-resolution PDFs.
But I also accept .jpg or .tif files. I do not accept ads built in Works, Powerpoint, Excel or Publisher. They must be in Word, PDF, jpg or tif.
