What is the best software for creating custom decals to use in SW?

I need to be able to creat custom logos, etc which I then apply to the surfaces of my Solidworks models. What software do you recommend that works well? I have tried Corel Paintshop, MS Paint, Powerpoint and even Word. The lines all look crisp and correct. The text looks great. Then  I import into Photoworks and applay as a decal to the model's surface. Even when I use the 'selective color mask' tool, I still get a lot of white and light gray pixels in the background of my decal. See examples below. Can anyone please recommend what software I should be working with that can talk to SW/Photoworks? Thanks!

 

In these examples below, I am showing the Part to which the decal is applied both with and without the Brass appearance applied.
