In order to link an image of a drawing to a part number in our part management system (Epicor), that image needs to be in a .gif format.
To do this, we have been printing out drawings, and then scanning them. I would like to eliminate the printing and scanning steps.
Recently we discovered saving a drawing file as a .jpeg, opening the .jpeg in paint, then saving the file as a .gif. However, some image quality is lost in the process.
We also have to figure out image size.
Does anyone have any suggestions about how to do this better?
