    Hi All,

    Is there a easy way to take an image like the one below and convert it for cutting, the black only? I'm using Corel X4.

    Thanks in advance.

    use your bezier pen tool and draw it. There are no "easy shortcuts" sometimes.
    Here is how a few minutes of work looks...
    A couple circles
    A couple wavy horizontal lines
    A curvy snake
    Some kind of rectangle things, duplicated with the transform tool around the center circle
    A few back minus fronts and you are 90% there.

    the bitmap is pretty bad, so garbage in-garbage out.

    The VECTOR DOCTOR all the way. For a few $ you will be amazed. I have used him many times with great success and a great turn around. For the time it took you to post this and get your answers the Vector Doctor would have had it back to you and ready for cutting.

    You might be right but it would be worth trying the Dr. and letting him say no. But after looking at it I would have to say this would be fairly easy to redraw.
