EAGLE CAD Tips | How to Add Custom Image Logo to Your PCB

Adding a custom image logo to your PCB can make your project look more professional. In the following video I will demonstrate how you can quick and easy import an image in Eagle CAD and place it on your PCB. You can place graphics on copper layers to be etched or on silkscreen to be printed.

In this video I show as an example a USB to UART board. Eagle expects a Bitmap image with less than 256 color depth.The text image was made in Inkscape and since Inkscape can't export Bitmap (.bmp), I exported the image as PNG, then using IrfanView I lowered the color depth to 2 colors and saved as Bitmap.
