I work in packaging and we set up our labels in Illustrator and then save them as a PCX file. The PCX file in placed in Label Matrix to add bar code, lot, etc. The problem is that you can not save a PCX file from Illustrator any more. I have to open in Illustrator 10 to save the PCX. I am looking for an easier way.

Anyone have experience with Label Matrix? You are suppose to be able to use a JPEG, but we have not been able to get that to work.

Graphic converter will be able to convert any Jpegs you create with Illustrator, well it can open and convert just about any image format you can name.

I tried Graphic Converter. For some reason when opening the file saved from there, it gives an error message: not a valid picture format. (in Label Matrix )
Any ideas?

Did you try any other file formats? Their website suggests it can accept more than just jpg or pcx

"Graphic formats import (bmp, pcx, jpg, tif, etc.)"
