    I'm not sure if that's any better if I look at what I get attached to e-mails (and how it's attached for that matter).
    And let's not mention "Outlook" style quoting, ugh.

    I've never seen a medium degrade that quickly. My money is on twitter...

    Yeah. I LOVE asking for an EPS (or buying a clipart collection that says it is EPS) only to open the file and find it is merely a JPG or BMP that has been saved inside an EPS project. No paths. No scalable geometry. WORTHLESS.

    Or how about a graphic designer who was building graphics for a customer of mine, and called to ask,

    "What resolution do you need the graphics?"
    "1280x720 would be perfect."
    "INCHES?"
    "No, pixels."
    "Can you tell me how many inches that is?"
    "Uhh..."
    "And what DPI you need it?"
    "This isn't for print."
    "I know, but I still need to know the resolution."
    "72dpi."
    "That will look terrible."

    etc etc.

    Ultimately I believe we settled on 12.82 inches by 7.2 inches at 100dpi. She still thought that sounded "too low resolution to look good."
