Thanks Doug. Yes I'm very familiar with the pension. Have used it for 1000s of files creating decorated apparel designs. I also use a technique where I used a good pen brush in photoshop to draw over an image as an outline, then import the tracing into corel draw and let corel power tracer tool convert it into a vector image. Then i only have to color it in with spot colors. This helps when I have to get designs approved to print very quickly. Deadlines, shipping etc. So I don't always have to be super precise with the pentool for fast orders
