Tutorial 3

If you are familiar to the graphic designing industry, you know how important it is to convert your font to curves before sending your files out for printing.  This term specifically deals with fonts and lettering made in a vector image.

 

            When creating an image using Adobe or Corel, you can add text to the image and it automatically turns into a vectored object. However, it will stay as that font when the file is save, allowing you to edit the text later on if needed.  The problem lies if you send the file to another computer that does not have that same font.  If the font is not recognized, the program will substitute it for another font, which will change the look of your design.

 

            That is where Converting to Curves or Creating Objects come in.  By doing this to your text before saving, it changes the font into an object. It allows you to open the file on any computer, but you will be unable to change the lettering later on.

 

            For Corel users, the steps to Converting to Curves are as follows:

 

1. Select the Text

 

 

2. Click on the “Arrange” option on the menu bar

 

 

3. Go down towards the bottom and click on “Convert to Curves”

 

 

It’s that easy…

 

 

            For Adobe Illustrator users, the steps to Creating Objects are as follows:

 

1. Select the Text

 

 

2. Click on the “Type” option on the menu bar

 

 

3. Go down and click on “Create Objects”

 

 

It’s that easy…
