Without getting too deeply into details, the first thing you want to be sure of is
that you’re dealing with a photo-editing program, not a vector-graphics package.
Photo-editors are far more common, but it’s worth noting the difference. Vector-graphics
programs (such as Adobe Illustrator and Corel Draw) can use photographs within them,
but they’re not good tools for doing edits on photos.
More to the point, the Gardenware labeling program doesn’t recognize the native file
formats produced by these programs.
Gardenware does not sell or even recommend graphics editing software, but if you’re
in the process of choosing a package, please be sure that you’ll have full control
over compression levels in .jpg files. It’s also a good idea to keep your options
open as far as the types of files that a program can open and edit.
Gardenware’s images (both photo and logo files) must either be a .jpg or .bmp file,
so choosing software that can make the conversion from a variety of other file types
is really handy!
