Illustrator is a vector package. Thus, the real original exists as an
illustrator file.

JPEG was a conversion. JPEG is lossy. Try exporting from Illustrator to GIF
for a non-lossy solution. I'm not sure what advantage BMP has over GIF . . .
do you need the extra colors BMP supports (24-bit versus 8-bit)? Word will
handle a GIF just fine.

What format did you ask your artist to deliver?

When you convert a vector image to bitmap such jaggies usually occur. Have
you considered creating the logo in two formats: one for print and one for
online? GIF and Illustrator, for example?

Using any anti-aliasing feature during the conversion should help. After the
conversion, though, I believe you are stuck with editing the bitmap as a
source. Go back to the vector image and see if you can tweak the export any.

The graphic artist for our company recently created a new product
logo using
Illustrator. She created it in .jpg format, intending to use it on
our web
site. She converted it to .bmp and .wpg format so I could put it
printed documentation (Word97), but the resolution is
jagged. Any ideas why this is and how to correct it?
