Fill a shape with a photo
« on: December 22, 2020, 10:33:14 pm »
Going a bit nuts trying to work out how to do this or even find a tutorial.

I have my simple shapes created by bezier curves and have been filling them with colours but want to choose a textured background... how to insert a photo so it appears behind the frame?

Thanks!

hi falsedog

you need to convert your shape to an image frame. ('item' → 'convert to' → 'image frame')

Aha - I had to convert it to a polygon first and via a right click but thanks I'm now into the Image frame dimension ...thanks!
