Hey guys,

I am doing some engineering work in UniGraphics, mostly drafting up random parts (detailing and dimensioning). My problem comes into play when I want to have a picture of what I've done. The detailing and dimensioning lines are in either a light green color or a yellow. When I export a JPEG, I activate the icon that says "Use White Background" because my background is typically black, and that's a tremendous waste of ink.

Now, when I insert the picture in Microsoft Word, I have the white background, but I can't see anything clearly in my picture. It's difficult to read yellow on white. I have tried messing with the picture settings (contrast and brightness), but I can never get the picture to display nice, clean, neat, black lines like it should. Does anyone know the solution to this problem?

Thanks, TJ

The first one was with photoshop elements

This is with Paint.Net (from my signature), it needs .net framework 1.1 up to version 2.5 and .net framework 2.0 for version 2.6

The advantage to Paint.Net is that it is more advanced than MSPaint, although based on it, that and it is free

The picture was converted to black and white, then auto adjust was used, then adjustments to lightness were made



It should view like this in Word



You can adjust it to suit, size, layout etc

No problem

http://www.irfanview.com

You can get irfanview with the plug ins, with that you can easily crop and convert the image to a different type and also resample the quality, whereas you can set the DPI to 1200 to keep and print on your PC, you can reduce the DPI to e-mail it

Although this lets you send files up to 500MB in one go
