Designing postcard for printing. Having trouble "converting to outline."
Hello, I'm designing the black back of my postcard in Adobe Photoshop 6.0. Everything is going well, except the instructions
for doing this say to "outline the text."
Here is what the link says:
"Flatten Your Images
Before you send your design file, you must flatten your images and convert text to outlines. We do not accept layered or linked images. This prevents font defaults and other issues."
Well, I found some directions online to outline the text by selecting the layer of text, going to layer-->type-->convert to shape.
Seems to add the outline. But when I flatten, as requested, the outline goes away. I just sent the thing in flattened. I can't see how anything beyond flattening will help them. What should I do? I've asked but wanted to ask here, too.
