Most people who use MTC and cutting files are very aware of how wonderful vector files are. They are completely re-sizeable without any loss of quality. Sometimes, however a crafter, especially one who blogs needs a raster file. A raster file is not re-sizeable. They are typically the files you see on the web. They are .jpg, .png, and .gif formats for the most part. As a crafter, you may have created something that you do not want people to easily copy and reproduce. MTC has the perfect solution.
To create a raster image from MTC do the following:
- Once you have created a file the way you want it to look in MTC, select all layers
- Right mouse click and choose Export> Selection to Raster File
- A dialog window opens that allows you to choose file type (.jpg doesn't support transparency and while .png does support transparency you can choose to have a background behind your image if you prefer in your dialog box)
- Dialog box allows you to choose drop shadow and other elements (for example you can add a watermark to help brand your image
