Illustrator Available formats Illustrator CS3 ai also allows for saving as previous versions Adobe PDF pdf Illustrator EPS eps SVG svg not used very much in print publishing Use the Illustrator EPS file format when you intend to edit your file in Illustrator at a later time and also want to use the file in another program le gt Export Export allows you to save your document in a large number of different raster and vector formats These formats do NOT allow for easy editing in Illustrator While Illustrator will be able to open and view these formats most Illustrator specific features Swatches Effects Transparency Guides Layers will have been removed during export Some of the formats Illustrator can export to Illustrator Legacy ai older versions of Illustrator Adobe Flash swf PNG png JPEG Jpg Photoshop pdf can include layers and type TIFF tiff BMP bmp AutoCAD Drawing dwg and AutoCAD Interchange File dxf Targa tga File Hints In general save your documents as native Illustrator CS3 ai les and always retain them even after you re done with a project When you are ready to export use the Save As command and save the document as an Illustrator EPS eps file This format can be used in any program that support EPS images and preserves the most information from the original Illustrator This also makes a copy of your document your original artwork is still a native Illustrator file When sending files to a printer or even Kinko s it s often a good idea to include a PDF version of your file for proofing reasons Make sure your printer or client doesn t mistake this for the final file format Do note however that some printers prefer PDFs over native files If you are sending a completed file to the printer consider making a For press only version of your file by converting all of your text to outlines This removes the file s dependency on your original font files and ensures that they will look correct when printed Demonstration Outline vc114 Week 07 lof4 10 November 2005

Opacity Definitions 0 Transparent Pixel A pixel that allows artwork behind it to be visible When a pixel is 100 transparent you can completely see the pixel behind it o Opaque Pixel A pixel that completely obscures any pixels behind it When a pixel is 100 opaque all pixels behind it are hidden from view 0 Empty Space Areas of a layered image where no pixels exist Photoshop displays a graycheckered pattern behind an image to help indicate where empty space is These areas will be converted to white pixels when saved in a format that does not support transparency or when the image is saved without layers Measurement 0 Opacity of a pixel is measured using percentages 100 is a completely opaque pixel 50 is a semitransparent or partiallyopaque pixel 0 is a completely transparent pixel o The graycheckered pattern background shows through pixels with an opacity of less that 100 and is fully visible in areas where no pixels are present aka Empty Space 0 Opacity is available as an option in most tools and when using layers 0 Allows for professional compositing and editing of images 0 Provides 256 levels of transparency per pixel However Photoshop uses percentages as a measurement of opacity 0 Always try to preserve transparency when possible Allows for flexibility in editing an image Selections Edge Type Antialiased vs Hard ed e Try to use antialiased edges when
