Creative Cloud Webinar: Decoding the Alphabet Soup of Graphic Formats

JPG, PNG, SVG, GIF, and EPS files are all commonly used in design, some for web pages, others for presentations, publications, and creative projects. But…what do they mean, and which should you pick? Important factors, like transparency, file size, animation, and scalability, determine the type of file you’ll need to create for different uses. In this webinar, we’ll explore graphic formats, discuss strengths and weaknesses, and show you which Creative Cloud apps are best suited to make the right images for your needs.
This webinar features a 15-minute hands-on workshop with Live Q&A. Quickly learn how to apply transparency effects in Photoshop that will bring your presentation skills to a new level while also exploring different graphic export and optimization settings. Join Chris Converse as we create a compelling animation in PowerPoint using customized graphics exported from Photoshop.
