Logos from reports

All reports (printouts) have the option of storing a logo at the top right. The logo must be filed as an image file in the format 2:1 (width x height). There are several ways to store an optimal image.

Variant 1: No major quality requirements

Open a file of your logo and adjust the size to the ratio (2:1). The ideal size has proven to be 400px x 200px. Now save the file in JPG or PNG format and upload it to the ems under the system images.
In this variant, white backgrounds are sometimes not displayed correctly, or are given a beige or slightly greyish background.

Variant 2: Medium quality requirements

Proceed as in variant 1, but save the file as a 256 color BMP. The easiest way to do this in Microsoft Paint is to save as… BMP with 256 colors.
By reducing the colors, individual colors in the logo can be distorted. However, the advantage is that the white background is displayed correctly.

Variant 3: High quality requirements

They achieve maximum quality requirements in the emf or wmf format (Windows Metadata File).
There is a trick to saving images in this format. Open Microsoft PowerPoint and import or copy your logo into the report. Adjust the image to 2:1 format as well. To avoid losses, you can enlarge the picture to the size of the presentation. To save the image file, open the context menu above the image and select “Save graphic…” and save this in emf format.
With this variant, transparent backgrounds are also adopted.
