Q: I downloaded the logo files for my department, but they are in eps and tif format. Why did you provide these formats?

A: Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) files are suitable for high quality print publications. EPS files are vector images on transparent backgrounds and can be scaled to any size without losing quality or resolution.

TIF files are suitable for printing from your personal/office desktop printer. They can be placed into software such as Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Publisher.

Q: I downloaded the UF signature files, but I can’t open them. What should I do?

EPS files can be placed into graphics software such as InDesign, Quark, Illustrator, Pagemaker, Photoshop or any program that imports EPS files. Tif files can be placed into software such as Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Publisher.

Q: How do I import an EPS file into my MS Word document?

A: Use TIF files for Word documents. TIF files can be placed into software such as Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Publisher and are suitable for printing from your personal/office desktop printer.
