    I have a design done in photoshop that I need to contour cut in flexi and I can't figure out how to make a perfect marquee around the design.

    I hate to ask such a stupid question...but I am having one of those days.

    I have done this before many times. I don't know what is wrong with me.

    Thanks in advance.

    I usually select the background (everything BUT the design to be printed) ...and then I go to the select menu & choose inverse. Then I fill this with black, & resave as my cut file in a .tiff format. While still selected, you can create a path, or export as a path, but my habit for years has been to open streamline & convert to a vector path in their. I understand both Flexi & Illustrator CS2 (or 3?) do a great job of this... and the photoshop export as path might also be as good, or better, & without running around to different programs... but my method is also quite fast & the only one I can describe accurately.
