GravoStyle image import.


Recommended Posts

Gravostyle supports the following File formats to import artwork

 

Bitmap file formats Image created from a grid of different coloured points on the screen or pixels.

BMP (*.bmp, *.dib) Standard format for Windows images

DIG (*.dig)

TIFF (*.tif) Standard format for transferring images between MacOS and Windows programmes

Window Metafile (*.wmf) Format of Windows images which include bitmap data and vectors.

 

If the image is in an unsupported format, open it with 'Paint' first & 'Save As' a supported file format, then import into the job

Must admit , I dont find gravostyle the most user friendly prog I have ever used, I think it could be easyer, but once you are used to it its ok ( just ok) Its a thing of joy when software works as if by magic ( like all nokia) software, they seem to have a good handle easy interface technology .

Hi Rich man,

 

I think everyone assumes you have Gravostyle 98 or G5. Its sounds like you are using Gravostyle Gift or Quick Click. If you are you need a third party graphic software to create your files, then export them as a HPGL file and import them into your program.

 

I hope this is of help to you. If not get back to me.

 

Warren :D

Finally, someone gets what i'm on about...that is what i was trying to explain before. The point is, I was attempting to convert to HPGL with another programme, gravostyle detected the file as HPGL, but would not import it. Why could this be, and what programmes could i try to convert to hpgl?

Right, if it's details you want, the shortcut says GravoStyle_G. (Read into that what you will, I can't tell you exactly at the moment, the programme is not on this PC) It's running on windows XP SP2, and I'm trying to import a converted scanned image into GravoStyle. I'm unsure of the converting programme, it's just something borrowed from elsewhere. As I said earlier, When importing, I get the error messages 'impossible rendering' or 'Unknown instruction' and the file does not import correctly.

 

If you want more details, let me know and i will find out.

the problem sounds as though you are having problems with the vectorising program, not gravograph. would need to know more about this program and how it vectorises and exports. i use casmate which has 3 versions of hpgl to export, you need to use hpgl simple. if you want to call me when you are in front of your computer ring 07979755251 - i am sometimes hard to get hold of but leave a message and will try to help
