About Graphics File Formats

UNCW logos are provided in each of four widely supported digital file formats. These are TIFF (tif), EPS (e-p-s), GIF (gif or jif) and JPEG (jay-peg). A given graphic can be saved in any of the four formats, but each one has particular strengths that can be lost when converting from one to the other. The table below shows the best use of each format and some things to remember about each one.

TIFF

Advantages:
Fonts are imbedded in image
Works well with paint/image editing applications
Prints well on postscript and non-postscript printers
Uses lossless LZW compression

Disadvantages:
Permanently converts spot colors to process
Large file size (compared to vector-based graphics)
Loses image quality when enlarged
Text cannot be edited with text tools

EPS

Advantages:
Preferred by graphics professionals for use with vector graphics
Very small file size
Editable text
Works with vector-based graphics
Supports spot colors
Does not lose image quality when enlarged

Disadvantages:
Prints unacceptably on non-postscript compatible printers
Requires linked font files if text not converted to artwork
Cannot be edited in paint applications unless converted to bitmap

GIF

Advantages:
For web graphics with areas of solid color
Background color can be made transparent
Supports web animation
File size can be reduced by limiting the number of colors used
Built-in, customizable color table gives good color control

Disadvantages:
Maximum 256 colors
Most GIF's are saved at screen resolution (72 dpi - unacceptable for print)
Text cannot be edited with text tools
Loses image quality when enlarged

JPEG

Advantages:
For full-color web graphics (photographs)
Uses compression optimized for reducing file size for web publishing

Disadvantages:
Compression proportionally reduces image quality
Compression results in progressive color shifts
Most JPEGs are saved at screen resolution (72 dpi - unacceptable for print)
Most JPEGs are compressed too much for use in print
Loses image quality when enlarged
