Hi Robert,

R> The image is color and should only be on the title page. Any ideas?

if you know the page it's supposed to be on, it's not a float!

So, you don't need the figure env.

It seems to me that you mostly get whet you want using:

\begin{picture}(0,0)
\put(20,73){\parbox{10cm}{\title}}
\end{picture}%
\includegraphics[width=\paperwidth,height=\paperheight]{TitlePage.eps}%
\begin{picture}(0,0)
\put(69,12){\makebox(0,0)[r]{\clogo}}
\end{picture}

but I might be wrong!
