Hi guys, I have created sheet templates and formats but the size of each file exceeds 2MB. this is caused by the logo that i have inserted.
How would i still insert ths .gif logo while stil keeping a minimum file size.
Hi Shamal, you've picked a well debated subject. One I too am looking for the ideal answer. Here is a thread you may can follow and find more help. Thanks, Daniel
Have you tried creating your logo in Solidworks line art? Would you be allowed to do that?
What about saving the logo as a jpg file? I don't know much about gif files to know if they
are typically larger or smaller then jpg files.
Just my thoughts for what it is worth.
Our logo is pretty simple, so i just inserted it into Solidworks, traced it (autotrace kinda works) and saved it as a block and inserted that in our templates.
That is what I have always done at the places I have worked. Not using Autotrace (never used that before)
but sketching it in. And this doesn't take up that much file space. But I have heard some say protocall
requires the logo imported in exactly as it shows up on literature requiring jpg type image imports.
Where I am at now the logo is just text using a font close if not exact to what the logo style is.
No images required.
I used a cheep Roster to Vector program to render the image. Saved out as .bmp and used it in my drawing. You could find free R to V programs out there. Worked great! The image was a prefect match incuding the shading it had. Hope it works for you.
I was told by SW tech support that the best method for inserting images into a title block was to use MSWord and insert the image in there first and the copy / paste it into SW from MSWord. don't ask me why but this is what they told me ....
True there are several ways to insert images into a SW drawing. I have found if one inserts an image into a drawing there is a noticeable outline (border) around the pic. Personally, it does not look professional when drawings go out as B&W with a shady box around where one has cropped an image (my opinion of course). I have found R2V programs give a distinct black and white image rendering great for clean drawing. Users’ choice.
