    Hello All,
    I have two questions that both relate to shapes, orbs.... Also know that I have searched the site but could not find anwsers to my questions--it they are already posted somewhere "my bad".

    1st. I am using a orb in my logo--I want to put an image of the U.S flag into the orb. I do not want it to be to prominant, just to have the flag look like a reflection (this will be in grayscale or black and white No Color), similar to the globe orb that comes with TLC.

    2nd. I want to put some bullets between my wording
    i.e. Muay Thai "bullet" Brazilian Jiujitsu "bullet" Wrestling "bullet" Judo

    Thanks in advance to anyone with some advice.

    Import your flag image and place it to behind the orb adjust the opacity of the orb and flag until you get desired results.

    To handle "bullets" in a logo write your text leaving a space/s for your intended bullet. Then with the use of a dingbats for your "bullet" you can do the same effects or different effects...drag and place into spaces.

    Thanks. Will I need to crop the flag pic in another program to make it fit the size of the orb. What is your suggestion on this? I am somewhat functional with TLC but not very with any other software.

    Thanks,
    Bel

    You can use your "Scale Slider" to accomplish the size problem

    The easiest way would be use the "Shapes" dingbat ( letter c)in the embedded fonts of TLC and color using "insert image" . See attachment for results of this technique or use Pixresizer to resize you image if you want the entire flag image in your orb.Pixresizer is available for FREE

    Note the image for "insert image" will very on the size of the beginning image.
