Weld?

Recommended Posts

Is there a weld option in this program? I can't seem to find one if there is. I do scroll saw art and I do a lot of words 'welded' onto shapes. Like a name in a circle or on a rectangle to stand on desk etc. Is there a way to do this with this program?

 

Thanks!

I keep trying to post a picture of what I'm talking about but it comes up a broken link. I've uploaded the picture to Tinypic and Postimage but it's still showing up as a broken link. What I'm meaning is say you have a quote, "when nothing goes right, go left" and the letters are 'welded' together and 'welded' to the frame. What am I doing wrong that I can't seem to upload a picture here?

 

Thanks!

 

The letters need to be attached to each other, then attached to whatever frame I put around it. A circle or a rectangle. Okay got the picture...

Hi Chefman, welcome to the forums.

 

If you put each word on a layer of its own you can use rectangle select to move the images so that they are touching where you want them to. Once you have it how you like it save it as your WORKING copy so that you can alter it later if you want/need to. This will save you much work later. Then you can press CTRL + SHIFT + F & that will flatten the entire image to a single layer. I would save this as a .PNG since it is lossless & my preference for image file types :D

 

We'd love to see how you go with this.

Thank you! :) I will give this a try. I was trying to use Corel Draw, which has the weld tool, but you have to go to night school to figure that program out. I'll let you know if it works or not.
