    OK, I know I've asked this question before in the 'Outline flash to picture' thread but this is sort of a different subject. I cannot get the outlines of the pictures. Like how would they have done it on www.packardbell.com, you see that animation? How did they get those outlines?

    You could inport an image, then tracebitmap, then draw a selection over the whole image and set your fill color to some color(white maybe). That will 'group' all the shapes together, you you will then have a solid color siollouett of your image, and you can get the outline by stroking the shape..

    Hope I was clear enough..

    For some reason, when I trace bitmap, then select all the shapes and change their color to white, it won't let me change the stroke. It changes but then goes back to nothing. Any way I can fix this?

    If changing the stroke isn't working for you, try using the "Ink Dropper" tool. The ink dropper basically takes whatever you click on, and outlines it with the settings you choose.

    Yeah but when I convert to bitmap, it seperates it into so many different shapes that I get too many outlines!

    Make sure to fill it all with the same color first. Select the whole picture, then in your properties box, just change the fill to any color, and it should make the picture that one solid color. Then when you apply the ink dropper, it will stroke just the outside.

    Just trace your image with the pen tool to make your outline, you will get better results that way. Using the method I described will give you jagged edges, I just tried doing it on multiple images..
