Current Book Tip

Have you ever heard that an image is fuzzy or displaying artifacts? Graphic file formats, size, and resolution can be confusing. I’m currently designing the interior pages of an illustrated book and the author has supplied images in a variety of formats. Which to use? To help explain it to the author, I ran across this article showing an example of artifacts in a jpeg file and providing a good summary at the end. Images for print have different requirements than online images but this article is helpful for people who want to understand some of the basics. (If I’m designing your book, I wade through the technical details for you.)
