  1. Re: How to convert to gif to transparent png

    I don't do it for logos, I do it for plants like trees - and I'm talking very complex designs, not simple... more like this. I cut this out, because I needed a top down image of a bamboo plant, and...
  2. Re: How to convert to gif to transparent png

    Trace the non-white areas of the logo, combine all the traced areas into a single object. Select the GIF logo and the traced areas, and Combine/Intersect. Then export to PNG with alpha channel...

    Re: How do I change the paper size?

    Honestly, I generally export all my files to PDF format, then set it to tabloid (11 x 17) inside Acrobat, when I print anything. I print straight out of Xara for letter size (8.5 x 11) with images...
  4. Re: Terrific artist. Fantastic presentation

    Very awesome work!

    I ran into a renowned "pen artist" from Japan, Kaoru Hashimoto, at Japanese book store in Arlington Heights, IL yesterday. (I don't normally go places to encounter artists...)

  6. Re: I take my music seriously - but maybe not this seriously

    While my ears perk up when I hear a classic rock n roll song from the 70's or 80's, for the most part music isn't a need I have. I've driven a thousand miles or more without the radio on, there's...

    Re: How do I bend a rectangle?

    Draw a 72 point line with square ends into the short curve you want your "rectangle" to shape. Convert Line to Shapes, and now you have a rectangle with a bend - rescale to whatever you need. :)

    Re: 3D illustrations...

    Normally I don't post maps I'm currently working on for commission, but I thought I'd show this one - it's pretty niche. This is 3 views of a hotsprings geyser pool, (left to right) top view of...

    Re: This day, 50 years ago...

    For those who lived through it, if you recall a very fuzzy, barely clear image of the moon landing on TV. I recently learned that the film was recorded and sent to Earth perfectly clear, like film...

    Well I started with XaraX1, then went to Xara Pro 4, then 5, then sat on that until XDP 11, and haven't moved forward beyond that. I honestly didn't gain anything going to 11, but not planning to...

    Re: 3D illustrations...

    Just created a duo of starships, with the smaller one nesting into the larger one, in such a way that if 3D printed, the smaller one wouldn't fall off the larger ship and fit snugly.
