  Moving Clipping Paths From Corel® PHOTO-PAINT® 8

Part Two: Load The EPS File Into Illustrator® And Cleanup

1. Open the previously exported EPS image file into Adobe Illustrator. Whoops!. The image has been resized during the export process. It has to be cleaned up:


2. Click the Links tab in the Layers Palette and double-click the image link.


3. The link information reveals that the embedded image has been resized to 24% of the original. It is also upside down (?) Go figure!


4. Using the Selection Tool, drag a marquee around the image to select it and its mask.


Note: If you need to resize the image as in this example, proceed with steps 5 through 7, otherwise skip to step 8.

5. Double-click the Scale Tool in the Tool Palette.

6. Select "Uniform" and after the "100" enter a division sign followed by .24. The dialog box accepts mathematical operators. This is the Mac version...


7. Click anywhere in the box. The dialog box performs the calculation. Then click "OK". This is the PC version...


8. The image is resized to 100%. Save the file. Then click Edit > Copy to copy it into memory. If Photoshop is not already loaded, launch it now.
