Working with Graphics

Importing graphics

Importing Graphics

  • In PageMaker, graphics can be inserted

    • As inline graphics

    • As independent graphics

  • Independent graphics give you the most control

  • Must have pointer tool selected when placing graphic for graphic to be independent (text tool = inline)

Formats for graphics

Formats for Graphics

  • Vector graphic images

    • Provide smoothest image because they’re based on connecting points with lines

    • End with .WMF, .EPS, .AI, .CGM

  • Raster graphic images

    • Based on a grid; curves can appear jagged

    • End with .TIF, .BMP, .GIF, .JPG

  • A distorted graphic is the sign of an amateur designer.



  • Line art (all solid images — black & white) scan the best

  • Original photos can be scanned for black & white images, not color images

  • Grayscale images CAN NOT be scanned

  • Photo reproductions (as in magazines) CAN NOT be scanned.

  • Both of these create a moiré



  • PhotoShop is devoted to either changing the quantity or the color of pixels

  • If image on your screen is 100%, you are viewing image at one image pixel = one screen pixel

Image size window

Image Size Window

  • Most helpful AND most dangerous window in the program!

    • Digital camera? What MP? What quality?

  • You can always make an image smaller

  • Keep a backup, original copy in case you want the original size back
