It sounds like your original template is corrupted in some way, which is the first thing that comes to mind when you say things have changed all of a sudden with no other change. Good luck with that!

I would abandon GIF format. It is an obsolete “lossy” format, devised for an earlier era of low-bandwidth Internet traffic, that compresses files by removing information and tricking the eye into thinking the data is still there. Almost any format today is better.

I would go with PNG format, which is not proprietary or platform-specific like the otherwise-seviceable BMP format. I would also explore SVG for non-bitmap images (diagrams, flowcharts, and so forth). If your tools and display environment support SVG, then those images can be viewed at any magnification and still stay sharp.
