Subject:Graphics Format Question From:Kristen Black <kblack -at- ITSNET -dot- COM> Date:Wed, 4 Feb 1998 07:34:03 -0700
Does anyone know where I could find some sort of list that explains why
you'd need a particular graphics format? I'm writing something on why you'd
want (or need) to use one format instead of another (for example, .TGA,
.BMP or .WMF, to name a few). I'd also be interested in any information on
what exactly the formats are--not just the names.
I'm on a tight deadline (as in today). I know, I know, lack of preparation
on my part does not constitute an emergency on your part, but any help you
can give right away would be greatly appreciated.
