Help making a bleed for cutting out a complex graphic – illustrator
I am tearing my hair out with this one.
I have a multicoloured JPEG graphic which I want to contour cut round the edge of the shapes.
It needs to be exactly on the edge, but I need to bleed the graphic outwards so when I cut it I dont get any slivers of white.
Now this is obviously tricky, because of the complexity of the colours at the edge. The only way I know to do this is to go into photoshop and manually paint in a bleed in all the different colours.
I hope Im explaining this properly.
Surely there is an illustrator genius here that knows how to do this?
