5- Once the images come up on the screen, click OK.

6- As you can see on the screen the scan did not allocate that there were gaps in the design, and therefore tried to put cut lines around every part of the image. On the right image you can see as there were no blank gaps it has creates a full cut line around it.

7- When you click on the cut screen you can see more clearly how the scan and cut has tried to put cut lines where it needs to be but they have not worked.

8- A simple fix is to take a lead pencil and fill in these lines. If you draw a line to fill in them as shown below the scan and cut will register it as a whole image.

9-Re scan the image and click OK.

10- You can now see that the scan and cut registered the lead pencil lines and recognized as a whole image. If you are happy click on preview.

11- Once in the cut screen check the cut lines and then click cut.

12- Now you have the solid image with cut lines you can also now use the offset option. Click on the offset.

13- Choose the outline distance for the offset. and click OK.

14- Your offset will now cut for you around your image.
