If your plotter is set up correctly within the prod. manager and you are working in vector format you just hit the plot icon. If you are saving the file you save it as a flexisign8.5 or whatever it asks you in the drop down window. A gif is a raster image and not a vector file. Plotters dont cut raster files.
thanks man. and you are from kingwood? me too. I'm a junior at kphs trying to make some money XD

I need to be able to plot this. I cant even open it up in flexi8. I've tried saving it differently but i cant get it to work.
As Motoskin said you need a vector file. I download from your link and it's a Photoshop brush. Not a vector file. Any type of bitmap will need to be recreated as a vector format for you to plot in vinyl.
You can import a multitude of different files into flexi but a plotter only will cut paths and not pixels. My son attends KPHS.
