I have no previous knowledge in graphics at all. I decided to re-create our company logo using adobe illustrator since that's what everyone said would be best. I would use this logo on Microsoft Office and Word Perfect Documents that I would later print to Adobe PDF. I have messed around with several options but haven't figured out the right combo - mainly because I don't understand it all. I want to export my file to several different sizes and formats. PNG, JPEG.. will be used for web as well... I cant seem to smooth the edges of the text when the word (and word perfect) file is printed to PDF. It looks jagged and the left edge is cut off. What am I doing wrong?! JPEG File:
Prints to PDF from Word like this: Test Logo w Word
File > Export
PNGfrom the format drop down
High (300ppi)from the Resolution drop down
Type Optimized (Hinted)from the Anti-Aliasing drop down
Transparentfrom the Background drop down
Insert > Photo > Picture from File...
File > Save As...
Seems to work fine for me.
Microsoft products actually prefer png over jpg when possible.
