Which file type should you use?

Many of our downloadable resources are available in EPS, PNG and WMF formats.

WMF

If you are placing an image in a Microsoft Office file, the WMF version works best. To place a WMF file in a Microsoft Office file, do not copy and paste. Instead, select Insert > Picture > From File and select the WMF file from your unzipped folder. 

PNG

PNG files are like JPGs, but have clear backgrounds, so you don't have to worry about those pesky boxes around your graphic elements when you place them.

EPS

Designers use EPS files primarily for print materials.
