In reverse engineering a letterhead, the actual image is as follows scanned as 300 dpi.
This is what I have come up with.
It is achieved by placing high resolution images, drawing rectangles and creating a clipping mask.
As it comes with Clients, no matter how hard I explain that the new (bottom) is actually better than the old (top), my Client made it very clear that he needs for the images to be 100% (not the term he used, but "as close as you can get them to be to show us that we are paying the right guy" was the term actually used) indenticall.
I guess my question is how would I go about giving the images a fuzzy effect. I have already applied the "feather effect" to achieve the white-ish borders in AI-CS5.
Maybe it is the fault of the scanner. But a ideal solution would be is to give some kind of mask/filter (I don't know these terms, but they come around often in PS & AI) to give a indentical/same color effects to all the images.
