I'm looking at a catalog in print, and want to borrow text and pics from it for other documents. I asked the artist if she could give me the pics in jpg, and the rest in any MS format or even RTF (Rich Text Format).
The reason: the Adobe pages average about a half a meg, which is rude, and I know many people hate getting PDF (me) period, let alone in an email. This is what the artist sent me:
Hello! I looked through the two programs that are able to open the promo fliers... Adobe Illustrator CS and Adobe Photoshop CS...
These are the options of how I can save the files;
in Illustrator CS;
Adobe Illustrator Document (ai)
Illustrator EPS (EPS)
Illustrator Template (ait)
SVG Compressed (svgz)
in Photoshop CS;
These documents can be edited when used with Adobe CS programs..... without these programs you can not edit type, drawings, or pictures. I know that doesn't really help.....
If anyone knows a solution to convert... or at least reduce the size of these files without making them look really crappy, please help.
