Other Graphic Program Compatibility Questions
Please consult Media Services staff when attempting to incorporate other graphics program files such as Canvas into your presentations. Occasionally problems arise in file size and compatibility. If possible, save your image file as an EPS or TIF file to insure that it can be opened in Photoshop. This will allow for a translation into many different file types. If scanning your own images to be used in Powerpoint, please be sure to keep in mind that unless you are planning to print out the image at a high resolution, it is not necessary to scan at anything higher than 72 DPI. This is due to the fact that standard monitors will not be able to show images higher than 72 DPI, even if the original was scanned at a higher resolution.
