However, since EMF does not support font embedding and is exclusively a Windows format, it is not commonly used as an interchange format between users. PostScript is the publishing industry standard for high-end graphics files, cartography, and printing. EPS files can be edited in many drawing applications or placed as a graphic in most page layout applications. GIFs cannot contain more than colors 8 bits per pixel , which, along with optional lossless RLE or LZW compression, makes them smaller than other file formats. GIFs can be generated with an accompanying world file for use as georeferenced raster data. They support bit color and have been a popular choice for use on the web because JPEG file size is often substantially smaller than many other image formats.

EMF of the layout or data view. Once the EMF file has been created, ArcMap sends it to the printer engine or export driver selected for the conversion to the final output. Note: It is highly recommended to use ArcGIS Pro for printing and exporting, especially when experiencing issues caused by the limitations of the ArcMap display engine.

For example, transparency is natively supported in ArcGIS Pro, preventing the rasterization of layers. Boxes may appear if using characters unsupported by the chosen font. Click the Save as type drop-down and select EMF. Click Save or OK. Evaluate the resulting image. If the EMF is correct, the problem exists in either the printer or exporter driver, in the printer itself, or the application reading the exported file.

The image on the left is the inserted EMF picture of the same map. Its inferior quality is due to the way Windows drawing works with EMF files. After zooming into the picture on the left using the Layout Zoom In tool because the picture was inserted in Layout View the quality is better and the image looks as expected.
