First off, why? Seems like youre going backwards. If you have PS youre better off using that than CorelDraw. If Corel doesnt either open it via the File>Open menu, or via the Import menu, then it just aint gonna happen.

I am a CorelDraw novice. I designed a logo for my company using photoshop. My boss want to print the logo on our company's business card. I sent the psd logo file to printing company. However they asked for a vector file instead of bitmap file.

The following are the email they sent to my boss.

please ask your designer to prepare a
"vector" file in CMYK color.  Vector files are files created using
application such as Corel Draw, Adobe Illustrator, or Macromedia
Freehand.  Please note the difference between vector files and bitmap
files, which is the one originally received from you.


So I need convert my PSD logo file to a vector file.

Experts, please help

Ahhh. Well, you cant reliably convert from raster to vector..No ifs, ands, or buts. ESPECIALLY for something as critical as a logo. You'll have to recreate it in its entirety in Illustrator (I dont under any circumstance recommend CorelDraw or Freehand). You can do rough conversions from raster to vector but theyre more or less uneditable and far from the quality of your original raster image.

You can definitely use Coreldraw also or Illustrator to recreate the logo. Here is a tip from me, Import the .psd file in coreldraw and lock the object. Now u can draw over the logo without loosing the details such as the shape or the proportion etc.

Thanks Weed and Soniya.
Seems that I have to redesign my logo using Coreldraw.
Now the problem is how to emboss stylize in Coreldraw. I used emboss in my PSD logo, so I need to do it in Coreldraw.

You may have to rethink some of the design. You just cant recreate everything from a raster image with vectors. With a little creativity you can come close.

This effect can be achieved in Coreldraw by converting the image in bitmap >3d effect >emboss. but then again it will be a raster image, and may affect the print quality. As weed has suggested just rethink the design, you can come close with a little creativity.
