    Your Skill folder is the Skill folder below the path defined in your ALLEGRO_SITE environment variable in my case: .

    If that's not set it is probably easiest to put the Skill file in your working directory.

    The allegro.ilinit file should be in your Skill folder.

    The pcbenv folder is in the path defined by your HOME environment variable.

    This is possibly one of the problems with recent versions of ImageMagick. Please email me the image so I can confirm.

    Hi Dave - Is there any way to either fill or broaden the shapes in the logomaker?  I've included a screen shot of what I am creating from the word "Engineering" below.  I've also zoomed in on one of the "e's" and was wondering if I can either completely fill in the shape or if not broaden the shape so that it is bigger.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you.

    First try turning off the Pre-process. Otherwise try manipulating the advanced options or editing your image in another tool to produce a more monochrome file.

    Hi Prasad,

    It should work in that environment. Check the instructions for installing potrace.

    There could be a number of things wrong. You should check that you followed all the installation instructions.

    I just installed.. and everything seems to be working..  except I don't see any preview?  Should I be able to?

    I can hit the place logo and it places ok..  There just isn't a preview in the logomaker form...

    Recent versions of ImageMagick don't work as well as earlier ones for some reason.
