Exportin a Logo wiith graphic quality in mind...

Post by ZR » Sat, 15 Sep 2007 06:15:33


Created a Company Logo in Corel Draw 12. It has several curves and
shadowing as well as Text.

I want to be able to use it on Power Point slides and in MS-WORD
(2003). Want also to be able to use it in Photoshop Elements - all
without loosing any of the clarity and graphic quality of the Logo.

Any detailed suggestions on how to export this logo retaining it
"beauty" will be appreciated.

Thnaks all.

A bitmap would be your best choice, probably a high quality (low
compression) RGB JPEG. 300d.p.i. if it will be printed, 72 if it's just for
onscreen.

Well, why use PSE when you already have Photopaint? PP is more robust than
Elements is.
As for Powerpoint and Word... it depends on *how* you want to use these. Are
they background images only? Are these only for looking at via a monitor?
Are you wanting to Print them? If so, on what kind of printer? Or are you
talking off-set printing?
Without actually seeing the logo, it's difficult to tell you what format to
use.


Depends on the situation. If you want something you can resize in
Word/Powerpoint, use a WMF (don't know if they'll take CMX). They'll look
great when printing on the laser at the office, but they won't look all that
good onscreen. If you're wanting something for onscreen use, a PNG would
probably be best. But realize you're not going to be able to resize it
without degrading the image. And never use JPG - it's a lossy format, and
especially with strictly computer-generated work (i.e., not photography),
you'll get artifacting in the image.

You will probably have to use multiple file formats tailored for the
individual project/usage.

Thank you. Will convert to Bitmap and see what happens.

Good questions. Will address each one as follows:
a) Robust - indeed I like it and have used Corel Draw since CD 5 (or
so...?), but found that for my work where I need to present .ppts in
front of groups, and for priniting brochures etc, I have had problems
of image quality. I also need to use some of this on top of photos at
time.

b)" Are they background images ?" - sometome on ppt I use a MAster
with a logo. Mostly I use the logo in Outlook Signatures and in
product brochures.

c) "Looking via monitor" ? - no, mainly on wall projection. Sometome
though on Laptop or monitor.

d) Printing - is importnat for me but the format are mostly 8.5" x
11". I use Inkjest and Color lasser printers for better quality if
need. I also plan to print letterheads and enevelopes as well as
business cards professionally (an outside service TBD).

Would be glad to send you the logo if I had your email address.

Thanks for teh help.

The issue of image quality from Draw is possibly due to either how you're
saving it off or exporting it and/or the file type you're sending it to. As
for "use some of this on top of photos at time" is a bit ambiguous. *How*
are you doing this? in a Powerpoint? In a printed piece? etc. Each one will
probably have a different answer.


In Powerpoint, a PNG would work... possibly a GIF - depends on the image
(which you've not yet shown). A graphic in an "outlook sig" is only partly
useful. Many people, myself included, don't use rich text or HTML mail and
use text only, so I'd never see it. But, a GIF or PNG would work here. As
for product brochures, you'd want to keep it in a vector format... presuming
of course you're using something other than an MS product for the printing.


All basically the same thing. Format could vary depending on the application
you're using.



Vector is best here - and you'd want to coordinate with your service bureau
on what format they prefer to work with.


just replace "nospam" with my first name in the email address.

When I create a logo, I export it in multiple formats and sizes, all
ready-to-use, mainly for the convenience of the people who are going
to be using it. These include:

Vector versions in .cmx, .cdr, .ai, .eps, .dfx, and .wmf or .emf

Bitmap images optimized for on-screen use in two or three different sizes.

Bitmap images for printing, exported at specific sizes for such
different uses as business cards, name badges, letterheads,
watermarks, etc.

E.g., logo3inch.tif logo3inch.bmp logo1inch.tif

Included with the bitmaps is a caution not to resize them beyond
5-10%, instructions as to when to use which format, etc.

Sometimes people even listen :)
