Electronic File Formats
St. Catharine College graphic elements are available in three formats: Adobe Illustrator .EPS and .PDF, and Adobe Photoshop .JPG. The type of file used is dependent on the end-use-commercial print, digital output, or on-screen viewing purposes.
The Adobe Illustrator .EPS and .PDF files are vector-based file format and are compatible with most desktop publishing and graphic design programs. These files can be enlarged or reduced without compromising resolution since they are line-art quality.
The Adobe Photoshop .JPG is a compressed version of a Photoshop file. Pixel-based files are resolution dependent, and it is best to use the highest resolution possible for the best quality. The clarity of the file is determined by the number of pixels per inch.
