TIFF and BMP are uncompressed formats, while JPEG is compressed. Most photos can be compressed without losing their illustrative value. \item Drawings that you make should be scalable vector graphics, \emph{not} \item Drawings that you make should be scalable vector graphics, \emph{not} bit maps. Some scalable vector file formats are: EPS, SVG, PNG, WMF. These can all be converted into PNG or PDF, that pdflatex recognizes. Your drawing package probably can export to one of these formats directly. Otherwise, a common procedure is to print-to-file through a Postscript printer driver to create a PS file, then convert that to EPS (encapsulated PS, which has a bounding box to describe its exact size rather than a whole page). all be converted into PNG or PDF, that pdflatex recognizes.

Otherwise, a common procedure is to print-to-file through a Postscript printer driver to create a PS file, then convert that to EPS (encapsulated PS, which has a bounding box to describe its exact size rather than a whole page). Programs such as GSView (a Ghostscript GUI) can create both EPS and PDF from PS files. Appendix~\ref{AppendixA} shows how to generate properly sized Matlab plots and save them as PDF. \item It's important to crop your photos and draw your figures to the size that you want to appear in your thesis. Scaling photos with the includegraphics command will cause loss of resolution. And scaling down you want to appear in your thesis. Scaling photos with the includegraphics command will cause loss of resolution. And scaling down drawings may cause any text annotations to become too small. \end{itemize} For more information on \LaTeX\, see the uWaterloo Skills for the Academic Workplace \href{https://uwaterloo.ca/information-systems-technology/services/electronic-thesis-preparation-and-submission-support/ethesis-guide/creating-pdf-version-your-thesis/creating-pdf-files-using-latex/latex-ethesis-and-large-documents}{course notes}.
