File types explained

I am often asked by clients what the different file types are and what they all mean. When to use a .jpg file or a .tiff. What is raster vs vector files? Good question! I came across this article recently and think it does an excellent job of explaining this.

“Every graphic you see online is an image file. Most everything you see printed on paper, plastic or a t-shirt came from an image file. These files come in a variety of formats, and each is optimized for a specific use. Using the right type for the right job means your design will come out picture perfect and just how you intended. The wrong format could mean a bad print or a poor web image, a giant download or a missing graphic in an email.”
