    what version are you using? 2.6 will let you put a clipping path around the image. lower versions don't

    Why not add the black background in Photoshop?

    go into help and read up on how to do it as it isn't a one sentence answer. there's good step by steps in there.

    I will sometimes just draw a vector line around the image, then a background box and combine the two to create (or erase) the background.

    I'm not a strong Photoshop user but when I need to get something into Corel from PS I merge the visable layers and save it as a .tiff(don't flatten) then see if you can import into Gerber.

    Ok hope this helps, this is so you can get the bg the color you want on the gerber edge

    Hope this is clear as mud...

    1)import cleaned up image into composer (see pic 1)
    2)select image, goto tools>generate decal cut (see pic 2)
    3)set both the image and the decal cut vinyl to same vinyl (ie. 220 scotchcal white)
    4) draw box (or shape you need for the BG) and fill it with the color you need (black in this case)(see pic 3&4)
    Set the vinyl color to 220 scotchcal white.
    take generated decal cut,fill with clear,turn it's cuts OFF, and place where you want it on your background.
    Select it and background and combine.Take your imported picture and line it up with the clear filled decal cut.
    (see pic 5&6 )
    5)select everything and output selected.
    6)double check your settings and send job to Edge

    Hope this helps!:thumb:

    P.S>- If anyone finds a flaw with this, please let me know, But I tried it here and it worked!
