    you could do it with paths i'm guessing? i've done made shaped text and pic boxes in the past by creating and converting paths in photoshop - dammed if i can remember how now though!

          My question is Why would you design a logo in quark? yikes.

          Photoshop: Raster Images (Photo/image manipulations)
          Illustrator: Vector Images (Logos, etc..)
          Quark/InDesign: Layout Designs.

          I use all 3. Each has its own purpous.

          It is not wise to mingle with one, for a purpose that was ment to be used for the other, issues might happen, and could cause huge frustrations and lost time.

          Use your tools properly and you can avoid problems.

          You just dont use a bandsaw to rip a 4' wide 5' long board, you use a table saw.

              The people who do this should have that bat Morea posted in the stupid people thread used on them. I loose a little more hair every time I receive one.
              How about a chain pickerel in your bath tub?

                The way I used to do it in Quark 4 (before the move to Indesign) was to comp the shape together using a couple of normal rectangles and a rounded one. Not ideal (or for logos), I know, but a solution non the less.

                    and yes i do know what raster vector and quark do

                    its a reggae pilot firing a new weapon :P

                    seriously tho this was a rectangle border in 2 colours with one corner as 45 angle

                    really simple i thought but yes quark isnt the one to do it

                    thanx guys anyway

                      I use photobucket, but instead of pasting the link, I paste in the IMG tag it provides. That puts the image right in your post. I wonder if that would give you better results.

                      Thank you, seamas. I submitted my labels last night. The final toned labeled were improved somewhat before submission - namely, the brewery logo included and drop shadows for the illustrations (link below)....

                      Texture overlay. I did something similar recently using an image of textured paper, put it on the top layer, and played with the opacity/blending settings until it looked good. If you want to get more...
