Just that the old nice guy usually buys the farm in movies, to make room for the vengeful youth. I'm on your side of the fence Joe, don't kill the messenger.

I prefer compressed JPGs. Small file size and anyone can open it on their computer. All my customers send me their logos as JPGs so I figure that's the way to go to match that quality.  :laugh:
