Problem in Uploading Transparent images in SE78

Former Member
0 Kudos

Hi,

I am trying to upload an image (Company Logo) with a transparent background in SE78. The file format at the time of upload is TIFF (since bitmap does not support transparency).

However I get an error message "Erroneous TIFF file". Can anyone help me out please, as we have a requirement to print this logo on a check using a laser printer.

Thanks and Regards,

Aditya

Hi Aditya,

SE78 is not uploaded .TIFF file.

Please use program RSTXLDMC, this is only for uploading .TIFF into standard text. The after you can use standard text in SAP Script form.

Rewards if helpful.

Not sure if the transparant background is the problem or not. Do you need to have a transparant background?

Hi Rich,

Yes...I believe so that we need a transparent background. They even showed me a printout from their legacy system and it prints clearly (don't know what software did that?)

In Adobe photoshop, there is a special option "Export as a transparent Image"...which is specially meant using the image for page layout programs. I tried to save the image using that.

Image was saved as a transparent image successfully, but gives error in upload. Surprisingly I saved another copy with a white background (did not choose the transparent option while saving). This image uploaded successfully.

Does SE78 have support for transparent images..?

Thanks and Regards,

Aditya

Hi Vijay,

The image was given to me in .GIF format via e-mail. I then opened the image and saved the image as a .TIF using Adobe Photoshop.

Then I tried to upload the same. That's when I got the error.

Hi,

I got the solution to this problem.

You take an image and save it as a 256 colour bitmap (Using for example the windows Paint application)

Then you upload this image via transaction SE78 as a graphic.

When you save the bitmap as a 256 colour BMP file, then the white background stays as a "White/Transparent Background"...which means for a laser printer...it does not try to print a "White Area".

Instead, if you use a 24-bit high resolution bitmap, you could get a Creamy layer in the white area of the BMP and this is not desired if you are printing using a laser printer on a coloured paper

So use a 256 colour Bitmap for these "Transparent" logos

Aditya,

Thank you for your comment on this thread. I was having the same "creamy layer" behind my image, which made my documents look terrible. With your input, I was able to save my logo as a 256 color bitmap using Windows Paint.
