Figures and Illustrations

Figures and illustrations may be created using any vector image editing program, such as Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw. A very capable and free image editor is also available at Inkscape which works on Windows, Mac and Linux.

It is strongly suggested you use the .png format for figures and illustrations. JPEG (or .jpg) format can be safely used for pictures. Images can be converted to .png using the free online image editr Pixlr.
