    Corel

    Hello

    Can anyone tell me how to make shapes in Corel, out of pictures?
    For instance make a sillhouette of a person.

    Sort of like this: http://web.stargate.net/soundgarden/

    Use the program Corel Trace. It is included with the suite. The easiest way is to create a gif with a transparent background, import into Trace and BINGO! you are done.

    Trace lets you make a vector image. PS is a rastor program, (mostly).
    For this, vector art is the way to go.

    yeah, but i assumed that it was prolly going to end up on a web page. and you can get a vector image out of photoshop by exporting the path to illustrator. imo - corel, run away fast.
