What Comes First: the Figures or the Manuscript? Until your paper is composed, you may not know: Which information and pictures will get to be figures How you will exhibit or organize the figures Not all figures can be dealt with the same. Distinctive figure sorts have diverse distributed necessities. Picture document sorts and programming radically impact figure taking care of. This can make a ‘what comes first?’ issue Potential figure information may exist before the composition itself. The Result: You must be pondering distribution necessities when you create any potential figure information.

Slide 3

Handling the \'What Comes First\' Problem Know the distinction between distributed industry and advanced imaging terms. Distributers are worried with a figure’s content. Does the figure have charts, graphs, or photos? Is the figure in shading? Computerized Imaging is worried with record sort and programming. Will the document just be opened by a particular system (exclusive)? Is it a pixel-based picture or a line-workmanship picture? Take after general rules for figure production There are patterns in picture necessities you can take after. You will probably make an assume that a distributer can utilize in the event that you take after these patterns.

Handling the \'What Comes First\' Problem: Publication Industry Terms and Definitions Terms and Definitions – Publication Industry Continuous-tone Figures : figures made of photographic substance, with marking on the picture. Visual Examples. No outside marking! Pictures affability of Dr. Richard W. Burry

Slide 5

Handling the \'What Comes First\' Problem: Publication Industry Terms and Definitions Line-craftsmanship Figures : assumes that are line-drawings, charts, graphs, or content and that contain no ceaseless tone figures. Visual Examples. No photographic pictures!

Slide 6

Handling the \'What Comes First\' Problem: Publication Industry Terms and Definitions Combination Figures : a blend of line-craftsmanship figures, consistent tone figures, and/or outer content naming. Visual Examples Images politeness of Dr. Richard W. Burry

Slide 7

Handling the \'What Comes First\' Problem: Digital Imaging Terms and Definitions Terms and Definitions – Digital Imaging Resolution : a number\'s measure of pixels (dabs) in a unit of separation on the picture. Normal estimations: specks per inch ( DPI ) and pixels per centimeter ( PPC )

Slide 8

Handling the \'What Comes First\' Problem: Digital Imaging Terms and Definitions Rasterized Image Files : picture documents made of pixels or spots. Sorts of rasterized picture document incorporate TIFF, Bitmap, JPG, and GIF. Line-workmanship Image Files : picture records characterized as a progression of lines, vectors, questions, and pieces of content. Sorts of line-workmanship picture document incorporate EPS, PDF, and Metafile. These terms are not taking into account the picture\'s substance, they depend on the advanced organization of the picture record . A particular picture document configuration is not constrained to a sure kind of picture substance. The substance of a given picture record could be a ceaseless tone picture, a line-workmanship picture, or a mix picture.

Slide 9

Handling the \'What Comes First\' Problem: Digital Imaging Terms and Definitions A case of a line-craftsmanship figure (a substance graph) spared as a Rasterized Image File, and as a Line-workmanship Image File. Rasterized Image File Line-workmanship Image File

Slide 10

Handling the \'What Comes First\' Problem: Digital Imaging Terms and Definitions Rasterize/Rasterizing : changing over a Line-craftsmanship picture document into a Rasterized Image record. Typically done by opening the Line-craftsmanship picture record in a photograph altering system (eg. Adobe Photoshop, Jasc Paint Shop Prot). ‘Rasterizing’ a line-craftsmanship picture record creates a duplicate of it with an altered determination and size. This new duplicate is made of pixels, therefore it is a Rasterized Image File.

Slide 11

Handling the \'What Comes First\' Problem: Digital Imaging Terms and Definitions Proprietary File Format : a document organization that obliges a particular project or adaptation of a system to be opened. PSD (Adobe Photoshop) and PPT (Microsoft Powerpoint) are samples of exclusive record designs. As a result of this impediment, most distributers will request non-exclusive configurations, which incorporate TIFF , BMP , EPS , and JPG . Exceptional Case : Adobe’s PDF arrangement is not entirely an exclusive configuration, on the grounds that projects other than Adobe programming can transparent a few cases even alter a PDF. Numerous distributers will permit you to present a figure in PDF group, then again you must check with your distributer first.

Slide 12

Handling the \'What Comes First\' Problem: General Guidelines General Guidelines Always keep essential picture prerequisites for survey and distribution at the top of the priority list Always catch or sweep picture at the most noteworthy determination conceivable. Keep duplicates of your unique, unedited, source documents. Utilize the proper record sorts and organizations

Slide 13

Handling the \'What Comes First\' Problem: General Guidelines Basic Image Requirements for Review and Publication High determination (300-900 DPI) must be available when the figure is produced, and can\'t be made later. Determination prerequisites fluctuate from 300 DPI to 900 DPI relying upon the picture content. Non-restrictive document sorts (TIFF, EPS, JPG, and so on.) don\'t oblige particular projects or renditions to be opened or altered, guaranteeing that your distributer can utilize your records. Standard text styles (Arial, Times or Times New Roman) ought to be utilized for any marking – your distributer might not have duplicates of different textual styles, and substitutions can present lapses in your figures.

Slide 14

Handling the \'What Comes First\' Problem: General Guidelines Generate Images at High Resolution Images must be produced in high determination, in light of the fact that it can\'t be included later. This incorporates: When a picture is caught (eg. with a camera, magnifying lens) When a photo, printout, or slide is examined with a scanner When an attracting is made a photograph altering project When a line-craftsmanship picture is sent out as a rasterized picture (TIFF, Bitmap, or JPG). A rasterized image’s number of aggregate pixels is settled when it is created . This implies the determination at a given size is additionally altered. Endeavoring to raise the determination can bring about a loss of sharpness and twists in the picture as your photograph altering programming produces new pixel information.

Slide 15

Handling the \'What Comes First\' Problem: General Guidelines Visual illustration of ‘creating new pixels’.

Slide 16

Handling the \'What Comes First\' Problem: General Guidelines Keep Unaltered Copies of Your Source Files All picture information ought to be kept in some unlabeled, uncropped, and unsized configuration. There is dependably the likelihood that: You will choose to improve a figure. The distributer will ask for significant changes. You will see a slip that must be remedied. On the off chance that your unique source picture and information documents are accessible to you, adjusting or re-making your figures is much simpler.

Slide 17

Handling the \'What Comes First\' Problem: General Guidelines Use Appropriate File Types Only a few projects are perfect for particular picture sorts. Utilizing them to make and alter other picture sorts may not create publishable results. Nonstop tone Figures : Use rasterized picture organizations, for example, TIFF and BMP . A few distributers permit JPG s. Line-workmanship Figures : Use line-craftsmanship picture configurations, for example, EPS , PS , PDF , EMF , and WMF . Mix Figures : Line-workmanship picture organizations can regularly accomodate the nonstop tone pictures in a mix picture. Rasterized configurations oblige a determination of 800 DPI or more to bolster a mix, and are not favored.

Slide 18

Figure Preparation and Layout Plan your figures before you begin to make them. Choose which pictures will make up every figure. Secluding diagrams and line-craftsmanship from persistent tone pictures (micrographs, photos) can disentangle figure creation. Consolidating line-craftsmanship and constant tone pictures can make modern assumes that pass on a decent arrangement of information. Settle on the format and marking of every figure. Don’t utilize your product - Make hand-attracted formats pen/pencil, or utilizing photocopies of your pictures. Spares time, is effortlessly changed, and obliges no PC abilities

Slide 19

Figure Assembly Different figure sorts request distinctive gathering strategies. Constant tone figures with naming straightforwardly on the pictures ought to be collected with photograph altering programming. Line-craftsmanship figures are best taken care of in a line-workmanship program. Charts ought to be made in diagramming programming , then traded for utilization in a line-craftsmanship system; outlines and schematics ought to be attracted line-workmanship programming and sent out as an EPS or PDF document.

Slide 20

Figure Assembly Combination figures are best amassed utilizing a mix of projects. Create/Edit the individual boards in the proper programming. Charts: diagramming programming Drawing, outlines: line-craftsmanship programming Continuous-tone pictures: create at the most astounding determination conceivable, alter utilizing photograph altering programming . Join the figure boards Option #1 Use programming that can deal with both rasterized pictures and line-craftsmanship, charts, or graphs: Microsoft Powerpoint; Adobe InDesign, PageMaker, or Illustrator; Canvas; Quark Express Option #2 Use photograph altering programming to gather your blend figure as a high determination TIFF or BMP picture (least of 800 DPI).

Slide 21

What Really Comes First? Making publishable figures doesn’t must be troublesome. Some commonality with the needs of distributers can permit you to expect their solicitations. Taking after general rules for figure era can cover up the production prepare, regardless of who you distribute with. Arranging your figures can spare you
