How to change the picture format of sci articles?

We know that writing papers will more or less require pictures to support opinions and data. Some authors and friends don’t care about pictures, just put pictures on them. I don’t know that sci article pictures also have format requirements. Let’s see See Xiaobian's SCI article image format to share it.

There are various image formats, such as JPEG, JPG, PDF, PNG, Tiff, Ai, EPS, etc. Each image format has advantages and disadvantages. Therefore, different image formats may be used in different fields. However, for the publication of sci articles, especially in the field of biomedicine, most journals require that the final Figure must be in Tiff format (some journals are available in both JEPG and Tiff formats). Therefore, the safest way is to store the Figure in Tiff format. Among them, the bitmaps (photos and other experimental results) in Figure can be stored as JPEG or Tiff, and the vector graphics inside are generally stored as Tiff. When finally exporting the entire figure, the safest way is to store it in the Tiff format common to sci articles.

The Figure of the sci paper not only has format requirements, but also resolution and size requirements. The resolution basically requires 300 or 300dpi or more. When we use illustrator or Photoshop to export the figure, we set the resolution to 300dpi, which basically meets the requirements of most magazines.

In addition, most sci journals require that the size of the Figure should be controlled within 10MB. If the picture is too large, first, it will be slower to upload the figure, and second, it will not meet the requirements of the magazine.

What if the Figure is too large and exceeds 10MB? This requires the image to be compressed. Whether it is a Figure in Tiff format, a bitmap or a line image in the figure, the file volume can be compressed by LZW lossless compression. The most commonly used software for image compression is Photoshop. Use PS to open the Figure, and then save it as a file, PS will open a window, click LZW in "Image Compression", and then save it.
