    bitmap problem

    Mattastic Level 1
      Hi Folks,

      I have cut out a sectionof my image using a marquee, but I need to make other instances of this cutout, can anyone tell me now to do this?

      Is there anyway I can find the edges of the bitmap and covert it to a vector graphic, so I can shape it using nodes?

      Thankyou

          Cut it to the clipboard (Edit > Cut), and then choose Select > Deselect,
          and switch back to the regular pointer tool. Choose Edit > Paste. Repeat

          select the first one you pasted in, and while holding down the Alt key,
          drag a new copy from the old one.
