Pictures come in two basic flavors

A picture that is created in a bitmap program (e.g., Photoshop or Painter), or that is scanned, is actually composed of tiny pixels. You'll only see the individual pixels if you zoom way in on the image. The important thing to remember about a bitmap image is that enlarging it above 100% in QuarkXPress will diminish its resolution and output quality, whereas shrinking it will actually increase its resolution and output quality. If you're preparing an image in a bitmap program or scanning it for output from QuarkXPress, you should plan ahead and be sure to save it at the appropriate resolution, orientation, and size. You're also better off making color adjustments to a picture in a bitmap program rather than in QuarkXPress.

Keeping the layers

Can you import a Photoshop image with layers into QuarkXPress? The answer is, only with a third-party XTension. Both ImagePort from alap inc. and Photoshop Import XT from Techno Design make it possible to import a Photoshop image with layers.
