If you are designing a logo, keep the following in mind. The output that is sent to the IBM AFP driver is dependant on your imaging application, so you may want to try printing from different applications to see how it looks.

This will cause your overlays and page segments to position incorrectly or be sfpds.
Try to use another application if possible. JPEG images, while typically the most commonly used, are lossy image formats, meaning that they do not store an image precisely, but rather try to save space by grouping similarly colored areas of the image. This makes the file smaller, but of low quality when printed. These image types create much better print output.
The adpds AFP image will be the same size no matter what image type you start with. The size of the resulting AFP file depends on the quality and resolution of the input image. If you wish to create as high quality an image as possible, make your input image match the resolution of your AFP driver.
