A bitmap is an array of pixels where each pixel has a value that represents the color of the pixel. When you attempt to make a barcode image file larger by simply dragging the image file to the edge to make it wider, you add unnecessary pixels to this picture and destroy the degree of being scannable to the image.
The best way to create and deliver barcodes in the graphic industry is vector style. The WMF (Windows MetaFile) and the EPS (Encapsulated Postscript) graphics are vector files.
Adhering to barcode and label specifications can cut penalty fees and fines and most importantly, save time and money. At Perinovus, we have software designed to deliver your barcodes to the proper file you need.
