Ungroup Imported JPEG

Ungroup Imported JPEG

Ungroup Imported JPEG

After importing a jpeg into Corel 9 I cannot ungroup to edit selected components.  Please advise.

RE: Ungroup Imported JPEG

Jpegs are single layer bit image files, so there is nothing to ungroup.

If you created the jpeg in another program and had more than one object there, you will need to save it in a format other than jpeg -- maybe WMF or EPS (or CPT from photopaint).  

RE: Ungroup Imported JPEG

Thanks for the response, Harry.  
I tried opening the jpeg in Corel Photopaint and saving as a CPT and importing it into Corel Draw but could still not ungroup.   

RE: Ungroup Imported JPEG

No, once it becomes a jpeg its too late to separate any components it may once have had.

If all you now have is the jpeg, then it is too late. You need to recreate the design making sure to keep all the objects separate and save as CPT *without* first making a jpeg or allowing the objects to be combined.

RE: Ungroup Imported JPEG

Harry's got it right. A jpeg is a photo format (Joint Photographers Expert Group) and the image is just like a digital photo... ie, flattened and just one image with no layers. A file designed with layers and saved in PhotoPaints' native format, *.cpt, will retain those layers. Export as a jpg, gif, tif, bmp...but always keep your cpt file. You can also import a photoshop file, *.psp, and have the ability to edit those layers until your hearts content. Good luck with your stuff Itso.
