Thanks Arc - I am intrigued by the idea of converting from raster to vector. Can you, or PooMan, pass along the technique (or point to the thread)?

I understand that the PNG format is rapidly becoming a favored compression. But doesn't it make for larger files though? If given the choice between TIFF, JPEG (including .jp2), PNG, etc... why choose PNG?

Here is my final edit on what started out as a simple experiment...

We prefer PNG as it maintains the transparency and best compression. GIF also maintains transparency and mainly used for animation.

BTW, nice work you got there

Arc pal that tutorial isn't really converting a raster to a vector. The image in the video is called a metafile. It has a vector outline with a bitmap interior, this means you can't change the colours of the flag by just clicking on it. But you could put it over a solid background and you wouldn't have the white block around it. If it was a true vector you would be able to just click on the individual objects and manipulate them to your hearts content.
When I get home from work I'll see if I get chance to make a demo.

btw, you don't need to upload the tutorial to a file hosting site just post the you tube link

I believe he must have d/l the video and kept in his collections. And so uploaded it again to share. I too like to d/l any vdo and keep in my safe rather than watching it streaming. You may know, we in india doesnt have much of the internet bandwidth

And thanks for the vdo pal.

Actually I have a little knowledge about vectors . Probably it is due to lack of thinking in this area. I can remember now that in Lordbob's sig it was possible to click on a part and edit it, but it is not possible here. I think I should devote more time with Corel Draw.

About Corel Draw, I am happy that now I am able to apply extrude and intersection . I had to try hard to get a control over it; and you also had to, Nick , for making one after another tutorials

Yes pal , I have download it to my HD, and there is a lot of videos in a tutorials folder . Not nnly videos, but there are a few pdf files too It is not more than four months ago Gladson and Anthony advised me to use photoshop, and so I started using it.

It is my good luck, Nick's effort and you all friends best wishes that I learned something in such a short period

Bandwidth without cap is every where expensive, as far I know, especially if its wireless. I use Reliance for speed and Airtel for unlimited download, its slower than tortoise but very cheap.

I was talking about my learning . In this regard I must to say about another person, Dennis. The Howling Wolves ! He improves in a jet speed. I put more credit on Dennis than me , coz firstly he is an aged person, and generally it is said that ability to learn decay after a certain age . Finally , and the most important thing is he does everything here and at the same time nursing his severely ill wife . This is an example I think, example of attitude towards life .
