    Default Detailed Spinning Logo

    Here is what may be the most comprehensive and detailed Spinning Logo Tutorial yet.
    It contains:
    • The difference between bitmap and vector files explained
    • How to Use the Shape Editor Tool for hand tracing.
    • Explanation of all the tools and dialogue boxes and their settings in both Xara Xtreme and Xara 3D.
    • How to import a background for the spinning logo.
    • How to export the finished masterpiece.
    • Over 30 screenshots to assist in understanding how it's done.

    The .pdf file is quite large at about 550kb. But I can upload it as 6 smaller files if required.
    I'd like to thank shaun007 for his permission to use amended versions of his graphics in the tutorial.
    The copyright for this tutorial belongs to Bob Taylor 2009.
    Saludos,
    Bob.

    John,

    It will, since it's a signature ... However, since it is a signature, it's available from every one of Bob's posts.

    Thanks, Keith. That was the plan. It gets a bit wearing after a while.
    I'll make sure my signature includes the link from now on.

    Thanks to Egg Bramhill’s kind guidance, I have amended the Useful Information section of the tutorial, which I reproduce below.
    Also I have posted the amended .pdf file too. I would be grateful if one of the moderators who has divine rights over these matters,
    would be kind enough to replace the .pdf file from the original post, to which I have linked in my signature, with the V 2.0 I have attached here.
    Saludos,
    Bob.

    Hi, Bob, that's a good tutorial, lots of useful detail for the unfamiliar user.

    I have replaced the original one with the version 2.0 pdf.
