Lesson 7. Recreational catalog > About graphic file formats

About graphic file formats

In the next set of topics you will place more graphics into the catalog. PageMaker supports many graphic file formats. The two graphic file formats most often used for high-end color work are EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) and TIFF.

TIFF is the best file format for scanned images or digital paintings because it preserves image quality and reproduces color accurately. TIFF files are bitmap images that consist of a grid of pixels with a specific resolution (in pixels per inch). TIFF and other bitmap formats are created by scanners and by image-editing and painting programs such as Adobe Photoshop. Although you can change the size and orientation of a TIFF or other bitmap image in PageMaker, the image will display and print faster if you save it at its final size and orientation from your image-editing application.
