Files under the column marked PPT are designed to be imported as graphics into word processing documents like Microsoft Word or Powerpoint. Files under the column marked CMYK are comprised using four basic colors (cyan, magenta, yellow and black), the standard in the print industry. Files under the RGB column are comprised using three basic colors (red, green and blue), the standard for laser printers.
Bitmap formats (including .jpg and .bmp extensions) use fewer pixels to create an image, and are recommended for use in posting material on Web sites, and for use in council newsletters or similar applications.
They can be reduced in size without a change in image quality, but they cannot be enlarged to any significant degree because the result will be “pixelated,” with ragged edges and poor resolution.
Vector formats use mathematical formulas to describe the image, and are said to be “scalable,” because they can be enlarged without any adverse impact on quality.
On this page, we offer emblems in .eps format, and while such files are not strictly speaking vector files, they describe a vector image. An EPS file is actually a program that describes an image, and like a pure vector file, is scalable. EPS files are for more advanced users, though, because they require advanced graphics programs that are able to open and use them.
Click on the JPG link and the image will open. Right click your mouse and save to your desktop or a file folder. The JPG file may be imported into Word, Powerpoint or other document.
Click on the BMP link and the image will open. Right click your mouse and save to your desktop or a file folder. The BMP file may be imported into Word, Powerpoint or other document.
The Encapsulated Postscript (EPS) file is available for all high-quality printing. EPS files use a vector format and can be scaled up or down without loss of quality.
EPS files may be imported or placed into a document to be printed. EPS files are for more advanced users, though, because they require advanced graphics programs that are able to open and use them.
Some computer operating systems will add a .ps (postscript file) extension when downloading or opening EPS files from the Web. This may affect the way photo editing applications view the file. If you encounter this problem, please follow the instructions below when downloading EPS images.
1. Select the EPS link you wish, four-color (CMYK) for print, three-color (RGB) for laser or Web use, or black and white, and click on it.
2. When pop-up box appears, click on “Save This File to Disk” and then click on “OK.”
3. When second pop-up window appears, select the drive or desktop you want to save the image to.
4. In the “Save As” box, check to see if “.eps” appears after the image name. If it does not, add .eps to the name (example, 3rdDegree_CMYK.eps). If the computer accidentally adds a “.ps” to the end of the image name, delete it.
5. Click on “Save” to save image to drive.
