Hello, Everyone!

 

Thanks for the prompt responses (Calvin_Desouza@doh.state.fl.us
<mailto:Calvin_Desouza@doh.state.fl.us>  and Alistair Strachan
[astrachan@intermap.ca]).  Once again, I went back to the old school and did
it the old-fashion way.  Here are the steps:

 

1.	Set the map doc background color and write down the color numbers
for red, blue and green.
2.	Bring in the scalable image document (in EPS) to MS Word - EPS has
the best image quality.
3.	Scale the image to the size you want.
4.	Set the MS document background to the exact same color as in the Map
doc using the color numbers.
5.	Then snapshot and clip the image in MS Photo Editor.
6.	Insert the new clipped image into the Map doc.

 

Cheers!

Subject: shrug-l: How to set transparent areas around edges of logos

Hello, everyone!

 

I humbly ask if anyone of you out there knows how to set the outer areas of
a logo transparent.  I have a round logo with transparent edges and the logo
image was saved in GIF, TIF, and PNG formats, but I couldn't make the
transparent edges transparent using ArcGIS 9.0.  I am sure there is a way of
doing this.  Can someone kindly point me in the right direction to make this
work?  Thanks
