Appropriate Image Formats for Print

How you should save your raster images is governed largely by how you intend to use them. Often, you will be placing images in a page-layout or illustration program, so you’re limited to the formats supported by those applications. The application may be willing to let you import a wide variety of file formats, but the most commonly used image formats have traditionally been TIFF and EPS. However, native Photoshop files (PSD) and Photoshop PDF files are much more flexible, and both formats are supported by InDesign and Illustrator. (We’ll discuss vector artwork formats in the next chapter.)
