    My logo looks good on the screen or if I print it but when I save my logo it looks bad after reopening it. Any ideas?

    g'day chris,
    What format/size did you save it in?, did you set any manual options before saving? Info would help to get to the problem.

    When you say looks bad, are you losing color, images, shadows, or what?

    I see that you have saved it as .Gif format and that it is a rather large image. .gif format tends to pixelate and has a maximum of 256 colors which can be used. So .gif format tends to decide which colors it uses from the 16 million colors the image was made in.

    Thats why gray or light colors end up being white.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for all the feedback. The only manual chages I made was to save it as 96 DPI. The rest of the settings were left alone. I have also tried to save it in all of the JPEG and GIF settings that are standard in the software but each time the main black body of the text appears very graining when I reopen it. Hope this additional data helps. Thanks again for the help.

    I saved it in GIF. 96 DPI is the only change I made.

    Would this also explain why the black in my image is not showing up properly? The black print that says "convesreNETWORKS llc" is the area that looks so bad.
