Hello

I am completely new in corel draw and I am trying to export a corel draw file -a logo- to eps. It has to be vectorized. I need to send it to a designer. I use the Export function, but when I open the EPS file and zoom at 900% I can see shadows is that normal in a `vectorized` file? Thanks a lot for your help.

 Hi Jennyq1,

A vector is a vector, and if you have a clean vector coreldraw file, then its vector, and as EPS should not have shadows. But then again, would it be possible for you to zoom in at 900% and make a print screen, and publish here, attach, a sample of some coners of that logo to show the shadow. I mean you dont have to add/update, attache the whole original file, just the zoom in sample. Why?

Well its because I wonder, in regard to how you wrote if you really have made it into a vectorized file.

May I ask how you have made this logo?

  1. Have you made the file as a vector image from scratch with the bezier tol, or any other object tools in CorelDRAW?
  2. Have you vectorized it by importing a jpeg or gif image, and then traced it with PowerTRACE?

How have you made the logo?
And are you working entirely with CorelDRAW in this, or are you checking your 900% image in Photo-Paint?

Hi Stefan,

 I did not make the logo, just received it, it was created in the past. I can open the cdr file and do basic stuff in Corel, which I never use, just to save in different formats. When I sent the document to a printer or any company that needs to create a design for us, they ask me for a vectorized file not in corel format but in eps. To export to eps I used the following options:

Include header, format tiff, 8-bit color, 300 dpi, export text as curves, apply ICC profile (separations printer profile), send as CMYK, fountain steps 128. I am checking the resulting eps file in Microsoft digital image suit 2006.

Thanks for taking the time. I am still trying to discover how to attach the imageAngry

Hi Jenny,

EPS files can contain both vector shapes AND bitmaps such as shadows.

If you need to send vectors only, then

1. re-interpret the EPS into DRAW so that you can edit the components of the EPS, such as removing shadow

2. request pure vector art (no bitmaps at all) from that original EPS creator that first sent it to you

but, FME most shops want PDF files now, since it's faster to review the contents of a file in Reader. And PDF's can preserve both vector and bitmap elements.

Note that reinterpreting EPS or PDF files may result in anomalies (errors, incorrect art). No matter what programs you use. That's why I advise you to insist customer sign off on final artwork before reproduction. Critical errors on a $15,000.00 print run, or $30,000.00 manufacturing job - you don't want this.
