Hi all, as you may know, I have designed a few templates & as yet they are all blanks. I am experimenting in illustrator & watching online training video's so my knowledge is starting to pick up. I would however like to pick your brains for tips on scanning in templates.
I am soon to get a scanner, & have no trouble hand drawing design's on to a template and scanning it in. At this point though my learning curve flattens out a bit.
I'm asking for advice & tips on the best way to change the scanned in image on screen into a digital template. Do I have to use just the pen tool, or will live trace do it well enough. Apologies for being a noob in this.
Also, any illustrator guru's, can answer me 1 further question. I have been trying to open my current templates in AI, but when it opens, the worksheet is on the screen with about 2% of my template on it, and the rest is way off, as if it's made it sooo massive. :( What am I doing wrong.. Im guessing it's a basic error.
Thanks in advance.
