    print images in a pdf doc

    SusannahR
      Hi,

      I'm inserting a gif image (logo from a png file) into a word doc and converting it to pdf. When I print the pdf file the logo appears very blurry (low quality). What am I doing wrong? Any help is appreciated!

      Thanks,
      Susannah

          You'll need to increase the PPI of the image to at least 96 (180 is
          better) for it not to look fuzzy.

            You should be able to place the png file directly in Word, that would solve the problem.

              You should get your logo at resolution higher than screen one (guess 200
              ppi will do), save it in format that support resolution settings, like PNG
              (GIF doesn't save resolution), then import in Word. Modern versions of
              Word understand PNG format correctly. If you have older one, go with TIFF.
