					Creating a Logo for DPAS Labels
The following process can be used to create a custom logo on the DPAS label for a Zebra

Source Image
An image should be created with a color depth of 1-bit (black and white). Image size
should be 192 pixels by 192 pixels. The resulting file size cannot exceed 4.5 KB in size.
This size is determined by the amount of black within the image.

   7.      If the original source file was created as a 192 pixel by 192 pixel image,
           nothing needs to be modified.

           If the source image was some other size, change the Width in Pixels and
           Height in Pixels both to 192 and click the Apply Resizing button. If the
           resulting change is unacceptable, click the Reload Original Image to revert
           to the original source file to try again.
