Chapter 12. Color > Color from Outside Sources

Color from Outside Sources

Up until now in this chapter I have concentrated my discussion on color items—text, boxes, rules, and so on—which are built entirely in QuarkXPress. But what about bringing color graphics in from other programs? And although I discussed modifying color bitmapped images in Chapter 10, Fine-Tuning Images, what about being prepared for creating color separations? I'll address these points now.

One area you won't read about here is working with object-oriented color PICT or WMFimages, because I think they're kludgey (that's pronounced “cloodgy”), and so unreliable that I wouldn't use them for my own documents (see Chapter 9, Pictures, for a slightly longer discussion of this format). The only formats that I find really reliable for prepress work are TIFF, JPEG, and EPS (and DCS, which is an offshoot of EPS).
