I'm lost...please bare with me, when it comes to graphics etc I know very very little. My bro-in-law designed me a logo. It's the avatar if you're interested. OK, my question...is how the heck do I get the logo to show up but not the brown background?

You've got to modify the image to either change the background to white or make it transparent. If you post the large hi res image, someone here can fix it for you (or me if I see it first).

I've attached the largest res version I have right now. Trying to find out if the artist has a higher version.

What is the process to do this?

Hmm. Well, that image is screen resolution, which is much lower rez than you'll need for printing. See if you can get a high resolution image from the artist. You could also ask him to throw it on a white background. Otherwise - I can do it for you no problem. Unfortunately, just not this second as I got a new computer for work and haven't loaded photoshop onto it yet.

The easiest way to do it is to ask for the .ai or .psd file, depending on the application he made it in. From there, anyone with basic image editing skills can set it to a transparent background, which would be better than on white.

Thanks all. I imagine it will be a few hours before I see anything. He works an overnight shift.

I have absolutely no input to add about the graphics... BUT I did want to jumkp in here to point out that we have very similar ideas!

I have named my homebrewery "Stubby Muzzle" because my wife and I have an English Bulldog and a French Bulldog. I've been thinking of some kind of graphic with the two of them staring each other down, eye to eye.

Stubby muzzle...I like it. Do you have any logos up to admire?

I've got a hi-res version now, but it's 2mb and too large to attach. I'm asking the BIL if he knows how to make the background transparent. Otherwise, anyone willing to let me email it to you?
