Abbreviation for Encapsulated PostScript. Essentially a graphic format for vector images that Adobe Illustrator uses. A .eps file is platform-independent and fully scalable. When opened in a vector program, it can be resized without any quality loss, but when imported into a program like Photoshop, the image is rasterized and cannot be edited. Developed by Kodak, Cineon is a 10-bit-per-channel digital format suitable for electronic composition, handling and enhancement. The Cinon format allows you to return to the camera roll without losing the image quality. The format is used in the Cineon Digital Film System, which transfers images created on film to Cineon format and back to the film. A Photoshop Raw image does not have the same file format as a Camera Raw image file from a digital camera. A camera RAW image file is in a proprietary camera-specific format that is essentially a “digital negative,” with no filtering, white balance adjustment, or other processing built into the camera. Like most file formats, PSD supports files with a maximum size of 2 GB.
For files larger than 2 GB, save in Large Document Format (PSB), Photoshop Raw (flattened image only), TIFF (up to 4 GB), or DICOM format. You can save HDR images at 32 bits per channel as PSB files. If you are one of the many people who have been overwhelmed by the large number of file formats that Photoshop presents to us when you try to save an image, good news! You can safely ignore most of them! EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) is another standard format for the printing industry that has been around for some time, but its use has decreased over the years. EPS files are not really image files in the traditional sense of the word. Instead, they contain a series of instructions on how a printer should reproduce the image. They can be imported into most layout programs, but the “encapsulated” part means that the files are essentially locked and can no longer be edited unless they are reopened in Photoshop. A preview image must be embedded in the EPS file when you save it in Photoshop, if you want it to be able to appear on the screen when you work in your layout program, otherwise you won`t be able to see it until the layout is printed. While EPS remains an industry standard format, you probably won`t use it very often unless it`s the format specifically requested by your commercial printer. You can save the image in an interlaced or unlaced format. If you choose Interlaced, the color values (para.
B, red, green and blue) are stored sequentially. Your choice depends on the requirements of the application that opens the file. PNG (Portable Network Graphics) was originally intended to replace the GIF format (PNG also stands for “PNG not GIF”). This never happened and GIF files are still widely used today, but PNG format improves gif in almost every way. It even improves the JPEG format. While JPEG files support 24-bit colors (16.7 million colors), PNG files support up to 48 bits, giving us more than 1 billion possible colors! This may sound impressive, but even JPEG files support more colors than the human eye can see, so any actual difference between 24-bit and 48-bit colors is minimal at best. As for diagram 1, the bitmap file consists of structures in the following order: The Scitex Continuous Tone (CT) format is used for high-end image processing on Scitex computers. Contact Creo for utilities to transfer files stored in Scitex CT format to a Scitex system.
Scitex CT supports CMYK, RGB, and grayscale images and does not support alpha channels. BMP is a standard Windows image format on Windows-compatible computers. The BMP format supports RGB, Indexed Color, Grayscale, and Bitmap color modes. You can specify the Windows or OS/2 format and a bit depth of 8 bits/channel. For 4-bit and 8-bit images in Windows format, you can also specify RLE compression. You can easily save your Photoshop RGB 8-bit documents in WebP file format. The WebP format provides lossless and lossy compression for working with images on the web. The Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) format is often used to display endless photos and other sound images on the web and other online services. Jpeg supports CMYK, RGB, and grayscale color modes. It does not support transparency, alpha channels, or layers. Unlike GIF, JPEG retains all color information in an RGB image, but compresses the file size by selectively deleting the data. A JPEG image is automatically unzipped when it is opened.
A higher level of compression results in lower image quality, and a lower level of compression results in better image quality. In most cases, the Maximum Quality option produces a result that is indistinguishable from the original. The number of entries in the palette is either 2n (where n is the number of bits per pixel) or a smaller number specified in the header (in the OS/2 BITMAPCOREHEADER header format, only the full-size palette is supported).   In most cases, each entry in the color table occupies 4 bytes in the order of blue, green, red, 0x00 (exceptions see below). This is indexed in the BITMAPINFOHEADER in the biBitCount structure element. Digital Negative (DNG) is a file format that contains raw image data from a digital camera and metadata that defines the meaning of the data. DNG, Adobe`s publicly available archive format for Camera Raw files, is designed to ensure compatibility and reduce the current prevalence of Camera Raw file formats. The Camera Raw plug-in can save raw camera image data in DNG format. For more information about the Digital Negative (DNG) file format, see www.adobe.com and search for the term “Digital Negative.” Here you will find complete information and a link to a user forum. The bitmap image file consists of fixed-size structures (headers) and variable-size structures that are displayed in a predetermined order. Many different versions of some of these structures may appear in the file due to the long development of this file format. When you record RAW, you have always received your original file because RAW is comparable to a negative from which you can make as many different prints as you want.
If necessary, all changes can still be made to the RAW file, so that it returns to the “as save” state. For permanent archiving, Digital Negative (DNG) is a file format that contains the raw image data of a digital camera and metadata that defines the meaning of the data. DNG, Adobe`s publicly available archive format for Camera Raw files, is designed to ensure compatibility and reduce the current prevalence of Camera Raw file formats. The Camera Raw plug-in can save raw camera image data in DNG format. The Header parameter specifies the number of bytes of information displayed in the file before the actual image information begins. This value determines the number of zeros inserted as placeholders at the beginning of the file. By default, there is no header (header size = 0). You can enter a header when you open the file in raw format. You can also save the file without a header, and then use a file editing program such as HEdit (Windows) or Norton Utilities (Mac OS) to replace the zeros with header information. The Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) language file format can contain vector and bitmap graphics and is supported by virtually all graphics, illustration, and layout programs. EPS is used to transfer PostScript artwork between applications. When you open an EPS file with vector graphics, Photoshop rasterizes the image and converts the vector graphics to pixels.
OpenEXR (EXR) is a file format used by the visual effects industry for HDR images. The film format has high color fidelity and dynamic range that is suitable for use in film production. Developed by Industrial Light and Magic, OpenEXR supports multiple lossless or lossless compression methods. An OpenEXR file supports transparency and only works with 32-bit/channel images. The file format stores values as a 16-bit/channel floating point. Photoshop uses EPS TIFF and EPS PICT formats so that you can open images saved in file formats that create previews but are not supported by Photoshop (for example. B, QuarkXPress). You can edit and use an open preview image just like any other low-resolution file. An EPS PICT preview is only available on Mac OS. The PNG (Portable Network Graphics) format was developed as a patent-free alternative to GIF and is used for lossless compression and display of images on the web. Unlike GIF, PNG supports 24-bit images and creates background transparency without jagged edges. However, some web browsers do not support PNG images.
