Any time a format isn't available in the Save As dialog, it means that format is invalid for the document in the state it's in. There's no such thing (as Lese and cwedge point out), as a 32-bit (or 16-bit) jpeg, nor a duotone, Lab or 1-bit bitmap jpeg. Photoshop versions prior to CS5 would simply not show jpeg as an available option for 16-bit images, which ...

.ai Contains: Native Illustrator content (unflattened) - used when file is reopened in Illustrator PDF 1.4 content (unflattened) - used when file is opened or placed anywhere else* *In the Illustrator Options dialog that appears when you save a native .ai file, a checkbox called Create PDF Compatible File, marked on by default, determines whether the ...

An .SVG file IS a source file. It isn't layers in the Photoshop/Gimp sense but it absolutely can be picked apart. Use an SVG editor - that would be Illustrator or Inkscape. Alternatively, if you want to get real crazy you can open the .SVG in any text editor and look for the values you want to change which for colors would be in Hex format #nnnnnn

A PHP script on the server (which is what the URL causes to be run) returns a response to the browser which contains the header Content-Type: image/jpeg so the browser knows that what is returned is a JPEG image and displays it accordingly. The browser uses the response headers to determine what to do with content. Client operating systems may behave ...

There's a great deal of opinion and frankly false information circulating on this topic. It's pretty safe to say that EPS, being Postscript based, is an obsolescent format just as Postscript is obsolescent. It served the community well back in the day, but it's long been overtaken by PDF and AI. EPS has almost no place in a modern graphics workflow and is ...

If you're using a version of Photoshop earlier than CS6 and your document is 16-bit, or if it is in a color mode such as Lab or multichannel that isn't supported in jpeg format, then jpeg won't be offered as an option on save. Image > Mode > RGB Color Image > Mode > 8 Bits/Channel Then Save As. One of the much-welcomed features in CS6 (or ...

I have not seen it mentioned and you also said community so my answer would lead more to a forum based choice instead of a CMS. CMS may be a better solution in regards to a preexisting WordPress site with the installation of BuddyPress/bbpress but I have not had any experience with attachments for it. A free solution also in regards to a community would ...

An answer from a different perspective: In our design shop, when we create a logo with text, the original is saved as an AI with live fonts. When the logo is approved by the client, the letters are turned to outlines (so the logo can't be screwed up in another application by having a font missing) and we save that as the EPS version. We always know to ...

And EPS stands for Encapsulated Post Script and isn't a file format as much as it is a file container. An EPS can all sorts of data. It's been a while since I've done much AI work, but I believe you can save it as a more generic EPS, which any other decent DTP application with PS support should be able to open, or you can save it specifically as an AI EPS, ...

Quick and easy workaround is to Save a Copy. Hold down Option/Alt when you choose Save As. If there's something about the image specifically preventing a format choice, the save as copy will remove that aspect of the image. Although.... There are very few times when you actually want to save as a jpg and not use Save for Web. Be aware, jpg is a lossy format ...

In our graphic design shop with an emphasis on print production, eps is still very alive and well and we follow the same workflow: .ai files are the "native" file format and can only be opened by Illustrator. We keep fonts as fonts in .ai files. This is the master larger file for any project, often with multiple hidden layers containing development artwork ...

As a web developer, I would say you should export the images at the size you expect them to be rendered. This is for two reasons: a) Filesize - a 2MB file scaled down in terms of resolution, still has to be downloaded at 2MB b) Rendering - a 1000x250px image which is displayed in a 250x50px tag, will be rendered by the browser at runtime. This is both ...

You can use a software that does it for you, or do it programatically in f.ex. Visual Studio. Here is some software that can help you out: Greenfish Icon editor (free) IcoFX Pro (payed) You probably know the reason why it comes in different sizes, but to make the answer more complete: the reason is that the system will choose the best-fit size for its ...

As mentioned in the comments, you will probably get better answers in a different Q&A, and I can't really think of any open project that does what you need (although I am sure there are good ones). In the meantime, these might be of help: Minus: Desktop client that works as both an uploader and a remote file manager. The advantage is that you can ...

PDF is the appropriate choice. You can either "export to pdf" directly or use the PDF printer driver (if available) to create the PDF, but either way, ensure: 1) font embedding is enabled; 2) use one of the default presets such as "High Quality Print" or "Press Quality" (don't use "Standard", web, etc) PDFs are basically fixed files which preserve vector ...

Using Adobe's ExtendScript js library, you could certainly write something without much work. I don't remember the commands off hand but you would do the following. Get the path to the document Set the JPEG export settings Export a JPEG to the path you saved Execute a basic save command Then you add that script to your scripts menu and give it a key ...

I think this is a Mac specific problem. Its either you have the file selected in your finder. Try deselecting it, then saving again. I also found this too at Macforums. Go to Photoshop > Preferences > File Handling And underneath "image previews - Always save" Make sure that "Icon" is UNCHECKED. It must be the case that this is conflicting with the ...

The GIMP's ICO export code can save multi-resolution icons. Here's a very nice tutorial for creating such ICO files in the GIMP. Basically, what you do is create a bunch of different-sized layers containing the same image (or different images, if you like) at different resolutions, and then save the image with an .ico suffix (or any suffix with "Microsoft ...

.svg does not support everything that Illustrator has to offer, unfortunately. It might be wise to actually save your files in the native *.ai format to retain everything you did, and export them as *.svg only if you really need to. And yes, that may mean that you lose some effects in the *.svg. If you want the *.svg to show identically to the *.ai, you ...

It should be in menu File -> Save As if you are trying to save down: If you are trying to save to a newer version you would have to export out as an .eps file and import that in and do a Save As. Personally and from experience it is easier to save out as an .eps or .tiff in CorelDraw unless you are trying to use the scale options.

There's diferent ways to do it, you can: Create a press ready PDF and import it to corel. (make sure to convert the text to outsides and unchek the "embed" option) This 2nd method will depend on what verions you have of both softwares, but in CorelDraw you can easily go to "Import" and select "PS Interpreted" and select the AI file. Note that you might ...

I am answering my own question. After extensive testing, i can confirm that AT LEAST Version X4 and X6 of CorelDraw GS has a PLT IMPORT bug. The bug happens only when there is an extremely high count of nodes in a path. I have filed a bug report with Corel's Paid Support and i am awaiting for answers. A workaround if you are in the same situation is to ...

I suggest you to export an *.eps file from Sketch and simple open it in Photoshop without any resizing. After that take an option which is called 'Save for Web' (Shift+Cmd+Alt+s or from main menu 'File->Save for Web') and resize your image to get the dimensions you need. Listen to the dougajmcdonald and prepare the size you expect them to be rendered in a ...

I suggest setting a Photoshop file up with the final resolution (depending what you want to use it for) and then importing the logo into Photoshop as vector shapes (from Illustator this works with copy/paste, not sure about "Sketch"). That way they stay lossless, even if you change the resolution later.
