File Formats Description

  1. PNG files are ideal for digital documents such as web pages and digital presentations. Their transparent backgrounds make them especially useful for places where a transparent background is required (like over a field of color). PNGs also won’t get grainy or blurry when uploaded.
  2. JPG files also work really well on the web. They are not too large in file size. Please keep in mind that it does not have the transparent background.
  1. EPS files is designed to produce high-resolution graphics for print, and you can scale EPS files and they won’t lose resolution. EPS files, much like PDFs, can be opened in several different applications, including but not limited to Adobe Creative Cloud products.
  2. PDF files can be used for the print format but need Adobe Creative Cloud products if you need to modify the file.
