Trace help

Postby grindergary » Tue Feb 16, 2016 3:15 pm

I have an eagle that I got from this site. It is an easy thing to trace but, I want to create an outline of the eagle the same distance all the way around the eagle. If I copy, paste then enlarge using the boxes up top, it doesn't seem to look right. I think it would be the same way as a spinner. I just can't get it right and I remember someone saying the same thing. I looked and have not found an post yet to see how it was done. Any ideas,

Thanks in advance.

Open up in Corel Draw and use the CONTOUR tool. If you search for Contour tool on the forum you will find posts on how to use it.

That will do what you want.

Thanks Gamelord, I knew I had seen it before but could not remember what it was called.

Thank you so much, now the searching continues!
