Grainy images-Help Please


Recommended Posts

I am creating a logo for work for a letter head. I was using 300 pixels per sq inch and size page of 2.77 x 1.05 Can anyone tell me why when I save the image and bring it in to a Word document, the image is very Grainy? I have tried to save it as a .bmp, .jpeg, and .gif. Thanks for any help that I get

I'm not an image format expert, so what follows are just my opinions

if you save the jpg with a high quality setting (85% or more), it shouldn't appear grainy. PNG is very good, but the filesize can be large.

post a link to the image here so perhaps I can see exactly what the problem is; I mean, if the grainyness is part of the image rather than a consequence of the format used, there's not a huge amount you can do about it.

k, first they look blurred but not grainy to me - maybe what I call blur you call grain - doesn't matter ...

looks to me like you've taken a smaller logo and resized it to make it bigger - that would produce the blurriness.

You can try sharpening (effects->sharpen) by about 15, or try getting a better quality image to start from,

If otoh you've drawn the image from scratch in PDN then I really don't know what could cause that effect other than an unintentional gaussian blur.

I've posted one of the images above - let me know if you want me to remove it.

no that's fine, you can leave it up there... I did play with the sharpness on it (Sunglasses icon) and changed it a few times. It did make it better. Yea your right, blurriness and grainy, meant to be the same. I never saved it as a pdn I did initially make the column only in windows paint. But it doesnt matter, the blurryness is the same with the column and the "mperial capital lending" part. Any other suggestions? thanks again.

I do like the logo with the words in the middle, I will now incorperate that into the design. I still however keep coming up with the column being just a little blurry. I redid the entire design but now its more clearer but still blurry, I guess Paint.net isnt for something like this.
