Artwork: Vector versus Raster based images
Artwork is preferred in vector based images (line drawings - .cdr, .eps) as opposed to
raster based (bitmap/jpeg) images. While the shape and colour of a bitmap image appears
smooth from a distance, when viewed up close you can see the tiny individual squares and
dots (pixels) that make up the image. Vector drawings are made up of objects, consisting
of smooth lines and continuous colours, and are resolution independent. When viewed up
close or from a distance, vector drawings appear as smooth clean lines and edges. Vector
images are easily scalable.
Incompatible file formats for Graphics include:
Word (.doc), Powerpoint (.ppt), Excel (.xls), .png, .bmp, .gif and .jpg (low resolution
files from Websites). Do not rename original bitmap files as .eps, ai, or .cdr. as these
will not work.
