Chapter 5. PATH CREATION TOOLS > Using the Trace Tool

Using the Trace Tool

You may have scanned artwork that you want to convert into FreeHand paths. The Trace tool can recognize the different shapes in the artwork and convert them into vector paths. Before you use the Trace tool you need to import the scanned artwork into your FreeHand document.

To import artwork for tracing:

1.
With your document open, choose File > Import.

2.
Use the navigational tools to find the PICT, TIFF, or EPS file you want to trace. After the file is imported, your cursor changes to a corner symbol.

3.
Click with the corner symbol to place the image on the page 41.

Figure 41. An imported image appears on the page with four anchor points.
