Graphics file formats

Dorico Pro supports multiple graphics file formats as which you can export your layouts.


Stands for Portable Document Format. Exporting layouts to PDF allows you to create a platform-independent document that contains a fixed version of each layout; for example, to send to someone who does not have access to Dorico Pro.


Stands for Portable Network Graphics. PNG files are losslessly compressed, meaning they produce high-quality images.


Stands for Scalable Vector Graphics. Because SVG is an XML-based text format, it can be scaled to any size without any loss of quality. Dorico Pro renders SVG graphics using drawing instructions rather than rasterizing them, resulting in better resolutions and smaller file sizes.


Stands for Tagged Image File Format. TIFF files are not compressed, which means their file sizes can be larger than other formats and the quality of the image is not reduced.
