In this presentation, Dr. Smith discussed figure file types, figure creation, and how to incorporate color into figures. She shared information about lossy versus lossless and how each type impacts the quality of a figure. She reviewed the types of figures that researchers may use, depending on the data that they are presenting, and she discussed the elements that make a visually-appealing figure. She also included information about how researchers can add color to their figures to make a great impact visually.
