Report Image Embed feature (Degrades Image) Not good for Company Logos

Report Image Embed feature (Degrades Image) Not good for Company Logos

Hi to whom it may concern,

We recently ran into a problem with embedding images into Windchill Quality Solutions Reports. We found that if when we embed images into our FRACAS Reports the image becomes degraded due to the conversion that is done in the background by the WQS software. This normal would not be a big deal, but these images contain our Company logo and are also used to report to our customers. The Company's image is everything. It does not look professional when our logos are degraded. We would like to be able to have our Company's logos on all of our reports to be clear and crisp. More details can be seen in the following reported PTC case if needed: C12084640

Thank you for your time,

Clive

Clive - in looking over this, all the comparisons seem to show the logo being resized inside of WQS, or at least a different size than the original image file.  Can you confirm that it is just tied to the embed check box?  It seems through further testing here that the image may degrade slightly when you print to PDF, but not necessarily just when bringing into the report design, UNLESS you resize it, which we can't really maintain control over

Hi Steven,

I just reconfirm the this is just tied to the embedded check box function. Even without resizing the image the picture degrades after  we embed the image.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.
