OK. Any Adobe Illustrator artists here?

I think that it is the best program to use to create either an .AI or .EPS file that can be resized.

Well, here is the image that my wife wants to replicate in digital form. It is basically circles that are black, silver, and gold (with slightly "brushed" texture for each color).

I have Illustrator (CS6) as part of the Adobe Master Collection, but I am terrible at using it to create things. I seem OK at editing existing stuff though. Can anyone create this in Illustrator?

Nick, now this I can do. Took me less than 10 minutes. smile



Here's a link to the .ai file.

The file has two layers. The "orig. photo" layer contains the picture you posted. I used it to get the circle arrangement in teh second "rings" layer as accurate as I could. (The camera lens distorted the circles slightly, especially toward the right and left edges.) The orig. photo layer is currently hidden. Just click the eyeball column in the layer palette to show it and check my accuracy. smile

Awesome. I think that this will be more flexible than a photo. Now I need to pick out exact colors for the rings that are close to the metal, but still look OK in the room, the background color, and sizes needed in order to get 3 panels out of this. At least I have the circles matched up to start with. Thanks so much.
