One of the most difficult aspects of working with objects and images is getting used to the multitude of formats. This is especially evident when you use a number of software products. If you are saving images for the web then they should be saved in one of thee formats. JPEG is used for photos, scanner images and supports up 16.7 million colors so it works well to demonstrate the the qualities of an image when the file size cannot be too large on the Internet. The GIF is a format that is used when you want have a lighter image that does not show depth and is limited to 256 colors. The GIF format is very useful for logos on the Internet for example. The PNG format supports about 16 million colors so it can give you a decent image rendering, however not all browsers will support the PNG.
The BMP or bitmap image is used to create desktops images on computer systems for example or used in a paint program. The file size becomes very large and therefore is not the best on the web.
If you would like to create a new drawing choose File on the Menu bar and then New Drawing. Once the new drawing is open it is a good idea to setup your Page format. Choose Format /Page which will open a dialog box so that you can change letter size and orientation in addition to margins.
