Image Quality Loss
Hi all! I'm working on a book where I need to combine several elements that are created on different programs. I'm able to use the transparency feature to over lay them and combine them but when I save there is noticable quality loss. Am I doing something wrong? The elements are made with ms word, excell and a music notation program. I have been saving them in pdf format so gimp will recognize them. Once I import them into gimp by using "open as layers" then I can go to "layer" then to "transparency" and then to "color to alpha". That brings up the next layer down. Then if I hit "layer" then "merge down" then hit "color to alpha" again I get the next layer. I have managed to make this work and combine up to 5 different elements (layers). But as I say, no matter what format I use to save with, even the native format, there is image loss when I print. Am I doing something wrong? Any advice will be great. Thank you!
