  Image Specification

edgypix high resolution images are saved as RGB files with a small amount of JPG compression to reduce download size. Each image is carefully checked to try to ensure that quality is not compromised by the compression.

However if you really need to work on uncompressed images we can provide them at an additional charge – please contact edgypix with your requirements.

  Saving Downloaded Images

After you have downloaded your images, you will probably want to edit them in some way for your application – for example cropping, resizing, adjusting colours, adding text. When you save an image after making changes, you should save it in a different, non-lossy file format, such as TIF or Photoshop.

If you resave as a JPEG you may lose detail and introduce artifacts. Best practice is to save the downloaded image as a .TIF as soon as you get it, and use that file as the basis for any further work on the image.
