Thread: I Heart Dragons

    Default I Heart Dragons

    Hi, all! It's been awhile. Nice to be here again.

    I just created a new t-shirt design using mostly Xara 10 and some ornery old Photoshop.

    Feedback would be welcome! And thanks!

    Thanks for the feedback, guys! I really appreciate it. And it's great to be back!

    I'd like to ask you all a question, if I may - is the lasso in the newer Xara versions as good as Photoshop's? And is there a magic wand equivalent? I'm asking because I still can't color in Xara the way I can in PS - if I drop a color within an image I've outlined in Xara, the color seeps out somehow and goes all over the place. But when I do the exact same thing in PS, it fills the image very nicely. No leakage. So I'm wondering if the lasso might help solve that problem (even better if Xara now has a magic wand...)

    short answer - no magic wand; a magic wand is only possible if you are drawing on a pixel canvas as in PS, where the magic wand selects pixels to modfy; there are no pixels to select in a vector drawing app like xara when you draw, so you cannot set tolerance or threshold; in xara it is 'all or nothing' so a wand would be pretty pointless; that is why in xara if you have even the slightest gap the colour spreads out like water as far as it can acroos the page

    if you want to freeform 'lasso' an area to fill, use the freehand/brush tool - when you complete the shape to fill it will automatically fill with a default colour which you can then change - because xara is vector this fill will be a seperate object to your drawing lines, it may need repositioning behind your drawing lines

    to get a fill in xara as I said earlier you must have no gaps in the outline, and it must be all one line, just placing separate lines so they touch does not work
