Today our VP Sales sent me a chart that had been created in Microsoft Excel. He was using wind data that I’m all too familiar with working with — as screen grabs in 72 dpi — which looks horrible when you try to use them in print.
Imagine my amazement when I opened the file up and it was a 300 dpi TIFF image!
I’ve also known that you can copy-paste charts into Illustrator and they come out as vectors.
So, without getting into the nitty-gritty of how you accomplish all these wonderful things, please know that they can be done . . .
And for a special bonus, guess which Bette Midler song I quoted to our VP Sales in my return email.
