No way :) that is slow and labourous!!! .... the BEST way is to draw
diag directly into MS paint
and save as a monochrome bitmap (bmp) then use one of any # of programs
to convert it to a gif I use Thumbsplus its a great prog that I have
resizing, recolouring, etc and it converts between most of the current pic
types. I couldnt live with out it
In fact cuz a mono bitmap file is only 103kB at my hi resolution, most of
I dont even bother to convert it. !!!!
I have been using MS paint for cct drawings for some 12 yrs .... its esy
up a page of cct symbols and jst copy and paste to where u need them
and add a few lines between along with explanation text.
I have drawn dozens and dozens of ccts this way
( without the need to go to an expensive CAD prog.)
check out www.sydneystormcity.com/10GHz-Mod-Tonegen-AFC.bmp
for examples (copy and paste into your
browser :) )
You have my permission to use these 2 bmp's as a starting point for some
component symbols etc, if you like :)
