Subject RE: Extract vectors
Date Tue, 03 Feb 2009 16:07:29 GMT

Thanks for the suggestion, 
I am a total beginner at this so any helpful advice is greatly appreaceated.
I suppose I could use something like this http://www.jibble.org/epsgraphics/ to save it as
an EPS file.
The only problem I have so far is how to detect if the image is a vector graphic in which
case I can draw it then save it. Otherwise at the moment I will just be saving the entire
page as an EPS file.
Thanks again for your help so far.
