    First and foremost, very little experience working with files other than vector images. Running Flexi 7.6 created a file with a printcraft fill added text and a jpeg image from a royalty free site off the net. I originally added a transparent lens to the jpeg. tried to export this file as an .eps to send to versaworks for print on my vp540. Flexi locks up and will not export. tried to remove lens no help. eventually got the file to the rip by saving as a tiff but this sacrificed the quality of my text, added pixelation. any help? Thanks

    Photoshop or Illustrator courses are in my future. Till then I will have to continue struggling with flexi. PMG how do you like that quickmount? Would you recommend this? Just about to purchase one. Am I correct in my assumption that Illustrator would be a better route overall for signs, wraps etc? Don't have much time to spend re-educating.
