Does Framemaker 12 allow Transparent Images???
I am trying to embed Company Logo on the Cover Page.
I have imported PNG & GIF Image into the Cover Page but image comes-in as a Square Box with White Background.
Appreciate any help.
Save as an EPS. It may still in Fm appear to have a white background, but you should find that the PDF has a transparent background.
Top Logo is from Transparent Logo imported from Powerpoint - Simple Cut & Paste.
3rd Logo is Adobe Illustrator (AI) file, imported into the Framemaker.
2nd Logo is EPS File (AI file, opened in Acrobat and then Saved it as an EPS File.
2nd Logo was imported into the Framemaker which it did not display in FM but shows up in the PDF Output.
4th Logo is PNG File.
In any case, none of these logos are showing transparent, they all have a white background.
This the resulting PDF we're looking at?
Why did you open the AI file in Acrobat and saved it as an EPS? The resulting EPS probably just has a white background and no transparent background.
Try saving the AI file directly as an EPS file and make sure in AI that it has no background.
Here's what I got with Fm12. The green block was created in Fm, the text and pink block are vector-based, and created in AI and saved as EPS.
Is your logo vector-based?
For reference, here's what it looked like in Fm
Jeff: Yes, the above screenshot was taken from PDF File.
Stefan: I do not have Illustrator program, for that reason, to create EPS File (from AI), I went through Acrobat.
Now I understand that converting AI through Acrobat would not give expected result for EPS file.
Matt: My logo is vector based in AI. I do need Illustrator to change it to EPS format.
Thank you for taking time to show me the result.
Appreciate all your help.
The best might be to ask the creator of the AI file, to create an EPS with transparent background for you.
If that's not possible, maybe Matt can do that as a quick service for a few bucks?
If you don't have another option, I'd be happy to do it for free.
(ok, well, I'll ask that you sign up for my free Fm newsletter at techcommtools.com!)
It was a Company Takeover.
New logo is provided from South Korea, will have to request in EPS.
Small companies do lack essential tools, so trying to improvise.
