Hello everyone :thumbsup:
I need to convert a file to JPEG
I have CorelDraw X3 & Adobe Illustrator
originally the file is a CDR (CorelDraw) that i need to convert to JPEG
can CorelDraw X3 do that? or do i have to make it an AI file (Adobe Illustrator file)
then make it JPEG using Adobe Illustrator (not quite sure if Adobe Illustrator can do that)

I don't use CorelDraw X3, but when you go to save the file, is there not an option to save it as different file types, with jpeg being one of them?

If not, XnView should be able to convert it for you.

No i don't see an option to save it directly as JPEG
I'll try it soon enough :thumbsup:
also i need to measure how many pixels wide it is
currently,its 4 inches long and 1 inch wide
so how many pixels would that be?

To find out what the pixel count of a 4" x 1" is, I would need to know the dpi (dots per inch) of the image.

A dpi of 76, would give you an image that is 76 x 304 pixels, while a dpi of 96, would give you a pixel count of 96 x 384.

Also,how do you convert using this tool?

Are you refering to XnView?
When you go to File / Open..., and select the .cdr file, it doesn't open in XnView?

If not, try going to Tools / Options / File Types.
On the right, scroll down to Corel Draw Bitmap, and put a check in the box next to it, then scroll to JPEG / JFIF, and put a check next to it.
Click OK.
Now try to open the image.

To convert it, just use File / Save As..., and using the drop-down arrow next to Save as type:, select JPG, and save it where you want.

Once you are through, you'll have to go back and uncheck the Corel Draw Bitmap, and JPEG / JFIF boxes, or they will open in XnView every time you click one of those image types.
Leaving them checked, will make XnView the default viewer, for those types.

it doesn't open in XnView?

I got an error message saying format could not be determined
also i can't find "file types" in Xnview
Are you reffering to tools>options>System Intergration>associations?

That might be where it's at, I can't say for sure, as I'm using an older version (v1.74)
Is Corel Draw in the list, and is it checked?

I don't know why "format could not be determined", since Corel Draw Bitmap (cdr) is listed as one of the formats, it can read.

I'll hunt around, for another way to convert it.
If I find something, I'll let you know.

even after i downloaded the standard version (uninstalled the minimal)
hmm i think i missed something.....

Are you refering to XnView?
When you go to File / Open..., and select the .cdr file, it doesn't open in XnView?

also if i do that,i see lots & lots of numbers below where you select the image

It doesn't look like that's going to be an easy thing to do.
The only thing I could find, that might be of help, is this, and it requires the use of Photopaint:
How do I convert from .cdr to .jpeg?

Can you save the file as, anything, other than .cdr?
