Hi Amit

 

You are using a 30+ year old format for the logo: Windows Metafile (WMF) is an image file format originally designed for Microsoft Windows in the 1990s.

 

Logos should be designed in Illustrator. When you import an .ai file (not copy/paste) you will see a white background in FrameMaker (because FrameMaker is also 30+ years old), but it will not appear in the PDF or in print.

Let's start with the basics - FM version, Structured/Unstructured FM.
Next, is it the image in the PDF that's changed or in the FM doc? Your wording is unclear.

What image file format is the image?
Is the background in the image itself, on a layer below it on the FM page, or on the master page?

FM version?
Older FMs did not support transparency in raster images (other than clipping paths on EPS, and even that was gnarly).

What page element is providing the gray background?
It looks like it could be a graphics frame, anchored frame or table cell.

Knowing that, some experiments could be run.

PDF and/or Publish properties for Images might need a peek. For example, if the PNG is getting downsampled, using JPEG compression, the transparency could get lost that way.

re: …(the color of the page)

Pages, per se, don't have color in FM.
That's why I asked where it was being defined.
But regardless of where defined, if the output workflow is modifying graphics, all bets are off.

Hi @Barb Binder 

 

Please guide, when I save the file as a pdf, the background image of logo is changed on the first page. The interesting thing is when I print the document, the back ground color of logo is not changing. Pls check mailed file and suggest me the solution. Thank You!
