Accepted Graphics File Formats

Make sure your submitted file formats can be processed.

IEEE accepts PS, EPS, PDF, PNG, or TIFF formats for graphics submission. Only when the graphic was originally drawn in the program is it acceptable to submit Microsoft Office documents (DOC, PPT, XLS). High-resolution JPEG files are acceptable for author photos only. (IEEE also continues to accept PS, EPS, and TIFF.)

Use the IEEE Graphics Analyzer to check your graphics before submission.

Most graphics are published at one column width (3.5 inches / 21 picas wide) or two column width (7.16 inches / 43 picas wide). Graphics prepared as VSD, GIF, JPEG, BMP, or any other file formats not listed as acceptable cannot be processed except in the case of an author photo.
