When I am bringing hand sketched drawings in to serve as a basis for the prettier vector drawing, I have been bringing in PDFs. The seem to scale well and retain sufficient detail. However, my overall file size has exploded! My current file size is 52MB…and that is less than a quarter of the drawings (have not started tracing yet).
I have lots of disk space so that’s not an issue aside from sharing the drawing. The bigger issue is application response slowing down the more graphics I add.
Maybe some of the performance can be aided by only displaying the graphics when working on those sections? But it does lead me to the following
Is there a better file format to use or would it be better to clip as much as possible before inserting into the file to improve file size and performance?
