New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I haven't used a computer in 2 years. I forget how!
I have some very fine thick and thin hand lettering I scanned in and put in illustrator.
I want it to be as crisp as possible. The quality must be there.
I clicked Live Trace and it did something, not sure what.
It is still in a BOX,
and I can't select individual letters and move them.
After I get rid of the box thing (how, please)
I need to move each letter by itself..
Is this all I do?
Also, the letters are black, but I need transparency, not white, as the background,
so I can put the lettering layer over a photograph.
I would appreciate a step by step.
