make a link active in a graphic small ad.

  Diemmess 05 Nov 11

I have prepared an advert for next edition of our village magazine. An advertiser who is a local agent for a cosmetics firm wants me to include a link to his parent website.

The link is active in his email, but merely copying it as text into a Corel Draw graphic unsurprisingly doesn't do anything.

How can I make the 'link' live so that a click .... and it opens on the desired website? Once working, the file will be converted to PDF for printing if that makes any difference?

I've moved your thread from the Helproom to Webdesign.

Can you explain a little further?

I take it that this ad will be appearing in an email newsletter. Is that the case?

Thanks F.E.

'Should have engaged brain before asking this question!

The advert is in a paper magazine and there's no way to a link with the internet from a paper copy except by typing the magic words when on line.

I am knocking on a bit, but this (I hope) is the result of spending too long making small adjustments to this and two other ads all of whom expect miracles of readable prose in a relatively small space........Oh well, it is fun most of the time.
