Our logo is a transparent Jpeg, and I would suggest going that route if you can, there is a picture format that does that and right off the top is skipped my mind...
Did you save your template file and if you did does it act the same way??
I tried GIF as well as PNG ( for the native transparency) but both yielded very poor quality in comparison to what I have at the moment.
One can indeed use JPG and then by using the option of user defined transparency get the background of the picture to disappear
This too gives us a visual very poor result.
I have tried the "Sketch Picture" command
And yes that should work and do exactly what I wanted wasn't it for the fact that any way that brings a picture into the drawing other then copy/paste ends up making the picture look much worse on screen and even far worse when printed.
This is by bringing in the picture with the copy/paste method when printed as PDF (and yes my template file is still less then 120kB)
And this is by bringing in the same picture with the 'Sketch Picture" command and printed as PDF
You can notice that in the second example the top right corner shows "IPE" while the first one doesn't, that is the issue I have to manually correct every time, bringing that text to the forefront. However when you look at the clear difference in quality of the two logo's there's no denying that the second one looks bad.
Even if I try it with the original high DPI image I still get this crappy result, and it increases my template file size up on top of it.
Any suggestions, anyone ?
