Description PDF – is a cross-platform extension, which is necessary for the visualization of printed materials in electronic form. It is developed by Adobe Systems using separate PostScript resources. PDF documents can exist separately from the OS or hardware tools with which they were developed. Files of this format do not have restrictions on the length, number of types and image options, as they allow you to embed various multimedia tools, scan-line and vector images. They are supported by Adobe Reader and many browsers, providing the plugin is installed.
Technical details PDF supports color models CMYK, RGB, shades of gray, and also it has its own technical formats for performing the exchange of finished documents. Any file contains a description of a 2D or 3D document with all the necessary components (scan-line, vector graphics, text and more). The extension does not encode data associated with the software or OS that is used to develop and view the document.

PostScript File

File extension .ps
File category images
Description Files with the .ps extension were created between 1982 and 1984 by Doug Brotz, Bill Paxton, John Warnock, Ed Taft, Charles Geschke at Adobe Systems. Publishers commonly use PS files for their electronic and desktop publishing business. Before creating a PostScript format, it seemed impossible to print text and image on a single page, as we do today. PostScript files made it feasible for applications to communicate with printers, such that they could display both text and image simultaneously on a single page. The Apple LaserWriter, released in March 1985, was the first printer to sport the PostScript format, thus helping printing technologies scale the text-image hurdle, and revolutionizing the publishing business.
Technical details Postscript was initially conceptualized as a computer programming language by John Gaffney; the file format was later developed. PostScript files are mostly created with applications like Adobe Acrobat or Quark Express. Though new file formats of similar and better functionalities have been made since PostScript, it is still supported by recent printer technologies, so the hardware's producer includes the structure in the device driver software. The average PS file functions more like a GPS, with instructions that supply the coordinates required by printheads to scribbling the right pixel of character at the right spot.
