Hi,

Ive searched this forum, watched a few tutorials but did not help in importing an .ai file in LW.

Example:
- made a picture in jpg or something (vector/transparant etc)
- made it eps or ai
- use illustrator to make it a V8 file
- use EPSF loader to import it trying all 4 options and rough settings

I could import a polygon ones but was all square. Ive seen a few pictures/videos were the picture had pathing. Now im unable to get pathing into the picture. Think thats part of my problem. Corel Paint shop photo X2 isnt helping in making the selection a pathing.

I dont know what to do now.
Please bear in mind that im a noob so talk noobisch to me :)

If you are creating your picture in Photoshop, you should just be able to save it as an eps or export it as an ai file and then use the EPSF loader to load from there without having to use Illustrator.

Have a look at this tutorial:

Hope this helps.
