Import picture

Postby juliaruth » Tue Dec 07, 2021 2:25 pm

Hi. I am just starting to us this software. Bit of a learning curve after 25 years of using Easycross! I have imported a picture and made a chart successfully, but I need to be able to import a file and use it as a background so that I can design on top of it. I can't see any way to do this. I even read the book!! Please can you tell me if this is possible. Thanks.

If you just want to "trace" a picture, go to Canvas > Background Image.
It will pop up a box where you can load your chosen picture and set the size, etc. (it defaults to fit your canvas size initially)
If that's not what you're looking for I'm sure Dave will have an answer for you.
