Q: What is the typical creative workflow for a print designer?
A: In graphic design, a workflow comprises all the necessary steps that have to happen for a particular job to be completed. Obviously, whatever your final result is supposed to be is going to determine what the workflow is. [ If you're designing a piece that will be output to the Web, it's going to a have a different workflow, or process, than a project that will end up on a printing press. Right
off the bat, it's important to realize that every workflow is different?mostly, of course, because every project has different goals, but also because there is usually more than just one way to accomplish a task. Workflows are also affected by factors you might not necessarily think about. For example, if you're a designer who is putting together a newspaper, you might be incorporating some photographs into your layout that came from prints from your local photographer. Another paper might have overseas photographers who need to submit their images digitally. More so, there are organizations or design firms that handle nearly all the aspects of a project, and there are designers who may work on only one portion of a project. Some firms offer services from concept all the way through design. Some people are just photographers. Even so, photographers who understand the entire workflow not only can provide better services to their clients, but also can be more efficient and avoid having to redo work later in the process. Traditionally, one was required to possess and learn several software tools, each one working differently. A tremendous amount of work was required to make sure that all of these tools worked together in some useful way. And maintaining them was challenging (to say the least), because each of the tools had different upgrade cycles, causing constant workflow changes. What is unique about the Adobe Creative Suite is that it provides all the tools necessary for a design workflow. Because of the integration between the applications in the Suite, it's easy to move your project along each step of the process. And because these applications all work in the same way, you don't have to tear your hair out learning about all kinds of programs to get your work done. ]

debnjerry, the rules say "To add credibility to your answer, always provide a link, if available, to a source that confirms its accuracy especially when you obtain information from another site."

Notice it says "if available". I can't give a link to my source as it is an online classroom that must be logged into in order to access it.

Here is proof that the answer to this question is no.



The first 4 sentences of the first paragraph state: "There are two image main image file format definitions used in a typical graphic design project. Raster (or bitmap) images and vector images. Raster images are generally photographs or images made up of pixels. These images are resolution-dependent, meaning that their physical size is directly associated with their resolution (the number of Dots (pixels) per Square Inch or DPI that they contain)."

The answer is no, because the raster is resolution-dependent, not resolution independent.
