I need advice as to the best digital file to convert a jpg into so that the design can be applied  on many different supports (website, Posters, Online adverts, banners, T-shirts, CD's and most importantly, digital releases like an upcoming album in digital format)

Keep n mind you File >> Document Color Mode >> RGB or CMYK

 

CMYK - for all print

RGB - for all digital needs, web, phone, video, kiosk

 

Is best to start out with RGB, as RGB has a larger color gamut. CMYK has s smaller color range, so your colors can sometimes get less saturated when converting to go to print.

The best format is to have is a vector .ai file. As you can export a .ai file to any file format you need with no loss of quality. Such as bitmapped format for web such as .png.

We need to see your art though as if it is a photograph that is not ideal for vector as you need many pixels. .jpg is a lossy format, that compresses each time you save, so whomever is ending you the file, you shodul ask for a .psd file if you need the best quality. >jpg can be ok though, as the loss in quality is not too bad if you have enough pixels and the fiel wil be much smaller to attach to email. I do recommend without knowing more the .psd format as it has compression, but no non lossy.

Hi I only have the artists .jpg file to work with and convert into an .ai that can be applied  on many different supports (website, Posters, Online adverts, banners, T-shirts, CD's and most importantly, digital releases like an upcoming album in digital format) Please see attached .jpg.  I am in my Adobe Illustrator and currently going to do a convertion what size and preset do you advise to use?.  I will follow below:

  • Choose Object > Image Trace > Make to trace with default parameters. Illustrator converts the image to black and white tracing result by default.
  • Click the Image Trace button in the Control panel or the Properties panel, or select a preset from the Tracing Presets button 
  • Choose Window > Image Trace or switch to the Tracing workspace to open the Image Trace panel, and do one of the following:
    • Choose one of the default presets by clicking the icons on top of the panel. For details, see Specify tracing options | Preset. -would you advise Black & White option?  Alyson

Just one more question the artist whose logo I will need to convert works freehand with pen/ink on paper so what is the best way to transfer the image into a psd file or straight into a vector ai file, is it to scan it and can you use any scanner or should it be specific technically somehow?
