    That is so so true.

    Worse thing is the poor quality raster files. If it's a good quality raster file, fine, but noooo. It's always thumbnail quality.

    I digitize the same rather it's raster or vector, but the quality is what will get you. And no, a thumbnail embedded in an EPS doesn't quite work in making it better quality.

    Giving one's opinion: When you see a sign or logo on this forum or in this case a video. It is like going to a museum to see some artist's work. If you make a comment on it to a group that are also looking at the work, no one looks at that person and says "lets see what you can do". The artist put his work out for people to see. Not everyone has the same opinion. And do not think for one minute yours is the quintessential piece submitted
    Not everyone on here likes the same things, and bob, who I admire for his thoughts and words, gave one of his critiques that you will find on the back pages in the art section. Some of you are young and that refers to a newspaper that has different sections, kind of like a google search but with newsprint. And, most of the time the critics are not even artists but have the higher intellect because they have studied in that field. So this foolishness of wanting to see his work "put up or shut up" is just foolishness.
    So stop making the evening news with your name calling (codgers, trolls) and opinions, and wait four years from now for another chance to win.

    What happened to this thread? Started out as a dude showing ONE way to do something that he thought might be useful to others and then something went sideways.

    How well does this handle script fonts and logos with gradients? I can usually get by with Illustrator / FlexiSign, but every now and then, run into a logo where I have to hunt for fonts because the autotrace isn't clean enough and the font matching sites don't like script fonts as it can't determine where one letter ends and another begins.

    I was glad to see a thread like this. so many threads these days are from hobby people asking for help with their circut projects and it was a nice break from that. I've had to clean up "art" as bad as what was posted and it is nice to see how others deal with it. what bothers me the most is the venomus attacks on the OP. bob was as usual way out of line with his comments and other were just as bad. we wonder why the site is going downhill at the speed of light and there are many reasons for that but we don't have to help the decline by jumping all over a guy talking about art work converstions. if you feel the need to belittle someone, go after the hobby people and I'll even help you with that but please, if the thread is even romotely about signs, can we at least try to talk signs since this is suppose to be a site for professional sign makers

    Kinda what I said in less words. If you aren't here to help then read a post and laugh silently to yourself, shake your head and move on with your life.
    I come here for insight, advice, options and knowledge. I have enough drama with an Italian girlfriend and 6 kids. I can live and be successful without this forum. I choose to come here to see what issues other people are having so I can learn from other people's situations and file solutions away in my brain archive for the day when that same situation might occur. Its not fun filtering through a bunch of BS thread replies that are just mean-spirited and non-productive.

    Sometimes when the wind shifts you have to tack and take another direction. Like hearing about a guy's Italian girlfriend and 6 kids.

    Or like someone listening to the Clinton News Network and doesn't understand the words and comes to a sign forum for comprehensive skills. That's why no one likes bob's posts. Someone is writing in English, not using nickle words and they can't go back & forth to look up all the words on google cause it takes too much time, so they just make fun of him.

    no it isn't why people don't like bob's posts. people don't like them because they are mean and nasty no matter how he dresses it up with words.

    As already discussed by someone else, don't be putting words in my mouth. I'm entitled to my thoughts or beliefs just as much as you. I don't think you are correct, but I won't tell you you are wrong.

    I enjoyed the video much more than the rest of the nonsense in the thread. Great job. Confirmation that the way I've been doing it appears to be the way I should.

    I liked the video and I always enjoy bob's comments especially when they involve Australian animals.
    Good conversation sometimes go sideways, and yes Streamline was a great program on my MacPlus.
