Question: I want to convert a B/W AI-format logo to a jpg for a b/w print ad. I have CorelDraw X3. Date: 11/07
Solution: With my time crunch and limited knowledge of CorelDraw, I accepted Susan McLain’s offer to use Illustrator to convert the AI logo file to JPG format. I then created the B/W ad in Publisher and used the JPG of the logo.
Other suggestions were also given:
- Try importing the AI file into CorelDraw and/or Corel Photo-Paint and then exporting it as a JPG. Also try Corel Photo Paint or Adobe Photoshop.
Result: It works very nicely. AI can import and export “just about any format in the known universe.”
- Try using Able Fax Tif.
- FaxTIFView seems very flexible, good, and inexpensive (with a free long trial period).
- InkScape can help you “set logo graphics free”!
- PagePlus from Serif always have free versions, but even their full versions are not expensive.
