Insert logo on drawing sheet

How do I do this? I have a jpg logo but can't seem to insert into the title block on the drawing sheet.

Many thanks.

Might try converting it to a bitmap ( paint can do this ) then "insert-object". If placing the logo on the sheet format, be aware that it will obscure sheet format objects if it gets too close to them. I've not found a way to send inserted objects to the back and have them stay there.

Edit your sheet format, then goto Insert Object. Select, create from file. Browse for your file and click OK. Your image will appear on the format, you should be able to move it around by selecting on it. It works very simuliar to Word or Excel. Also, I don't remember for sure, but you may not be able to use JPG, BMP may work better.

Only BMP images are supported with the "Insert, Object" technique.

For other formats (JPG, PNG, TIF, etc.), open the file in another application (i..e. Paint, Photoshop, etc.) copy to the clipboard, then paste into your drawing.

Hope this helps.

JPG works only if you have ms office's photo editor installed. I think if you use BMP your template files will be larger in size & thus all of you drawing files will result in a larger size than if you use JPG.

Interesting -- didn't know that. I'll have try this, although I will need to install it from the MS office CD.

I have ms office's photo editor. How does that help?

You don't have to use the MS photo editor, I use Irfan View, probably works with several image editors/viewers. Open the pic, ctrl-C, go to the drawing, ctrl-V.

Hes not saying to have to use MS Photo editor, you just have to have it installed. For some reason, if its not installed, the image wont copy/paste into the SolidWorks drawing. Once its installed, you can use any photo viewer, I use ACDSEE.
