I use photoshop for most of my graphics. Then I open up the .PSD files in Fireworks to make .gifs (they just look better to me.)
Since fireworks is vector-based (rather than rasterized), I converted the .psd file I rendered in poser into a .png (Portable network graphics).
Then I imported the .png file into flash for the front page of EricBrooks.Com
Now it expands & contracts with no loss in quality. I couldn’t do that if I had imported a .jpg. Plus the flash file is only 39kb. Using a .jpg that file size (800x600px) would have put it well over 100k.
It’s vector graphics from now on for me….
(Just a little something to keep you busy while I delete a bunch of files here…)
