Cutting an Image

Posted 16 September 2006 - 07:19 PM

Okay, here is my question. I created a logo using Corel Draw 12. The problem I am having is that I want to just the label to place on the website. Is there a way I can cut out the background and just leave the outline shaped of the website? The logo is an oval shaped logo. Any advice will help.

Okay, but another question. What extention should I save the image on. I am using Corel Draw in which an extention of cdr is used. When I try to open it up under a different program such as Photoshop, it won't let me. What should I save it as so all programs can open it? Thanks for the information. :)

your basic web-image formats are jpg (jpeg) gif and png.

i dont know what corel draw lets you export as but those are going to give you a flat image most likely, but if it lets you preserve layers with png go ahead and do that.

the thing about these programs is they all use their own filetypes to save layers, effects etc... to be editable at a later time, so a photoshop (.psd) file can only be opened in the adobe graphics suite.

a tip on cutting out your shape,
if the colors are a big difference from eachother (like black on white)
use the magic wand tool, set the setting to sometihng like 25, and click on either the black or white, and it will select all the pixels within 25 shades of that color you just clicked on...

also, there is another tool, i just spaced out on the name of it,
but it works just like you were drawing a shape, but if you stay close to the edges of the oval it will automatically lock onto those edges for you, just gotta be kinda careful when your dragging your mouse around it,

if that didnt make sense lemme know.
