Why does the image lose its clarity and becomes pixilated? is there a way for this not to happen?
Best is to have a vector logo if you are referring to a logo image. Otherwise have more pixels in the image, makes your drawing file larger. Bear in mind that you are putting pixels object into Vector file.
Hope this helps.
what's the file extension?
I´m talking about Logo made in e.g. Draftsight, Adobe Illustrator etc. You can save them as .dwg or .dxf and open them in SOLIDWORKS, make a block or whatever and put it in your template file.
Have a look here Blurry image (all file formats) in PDF drawing
i guess i'm not fully understanding. when i try to insert an object and select an adobe illustrater, it brings it in as an icon. not the image i want. attached is the image i'm needing to add to my drawing templates.
Have a look here Raster (Bitmap) vs Vector
The image you uploaded will always be a raster image (pixels per inch). You can put it in Draftsight, Illustrator etc. and it will be nothing more then it already is.
You will have to trace it with any software you like e.g. 2014 SOLIDWORKS Help - Converting Sketch Pictures to Vector Data
and throw away the raster image afterwards. Then you will be left with vector data.
You can also put the image in a sketch in SolidWorks and draw lines over it + the text. In your case it´s only the green box you need to sketch, add the text with correct fonts and hatch(solid) the green box. You can even dissolve the text afterwards so it will becomes lines and arcs. Afterwards throw away the image, then you are only left with vector data you can print as big as you like and it will never become pixelated.
You can look for the original image that was most likely done in vector format and saved as raster image.
