Hi all, i just bought Impact vehicle outlines and have had a play in corel, i can get the vehicles up on the screen by importing the file on to an A4 page, is this the way to do it?
Would the sticker sizes need to be measured on the van before cutting them out? or can you use the van file another way?

You need to use the EPS files they are full size. You can then make your Page large enough for the outline to fit in. Go to layout & Page Setup.

You need to use the correct filter when importing the EPS files into Corel. When you go to File & Import you will see a box marked "files of type" you need to change this to PS, PRN, EPS PostScript Interpreted.

Yes mate enter centers it to the page. Don't use the Ai files because they will be very small.

Brian do you know of a tutorial . Either text based or You tube (preferred) .

Yeah I am getting old and no matter what people say you "can" teach an old dog new tricks but it takes so much more time. I also learn better by watching as opposed to reading.
