Here are the responses.  Thanks for Cassandra Gray of ESRI for pointing out
the following two articles which might be the most elegant solution (though
I have not tried it yet):

I once again 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 approx 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!

 

ORIGINAL QUESTION:  How to set the outer areas of a logo transparent.  I
have a round logo with the edges set transparent 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
