[VisCom] GRASS/OSGeo-Newsletter vol. 4

Most of this is probably the compression settings in the PDF creator,
especially if it's outputting a low-colour image and merging the GRASS
green with the OSGeo greens.

Using a colour dropper app, there are considerable differences between
the newsletter and:

When you zoom in on the logo, you can see jaggies in the circle that are
the result of changing the aspect ratio.

(as long as I'm being picky) I think that the two-colour reversed logo
(with white text) might have been a better choice for that background :)

Oh, I think I see what you mean now Jason.  If you zoom in more than  
100% it looks blurry, right.  I wonder how it looks printed.   We  
should have increased the resolution of the image.  I treated it like a
web graphic, it was probably only a 72dpi image in the end.  Ooops...
