Changes the Kindtype of the current layer to IEImageLayer.

This will change it from a vector-based layer to a standard bitmap layer. Bitmap layers can be edited using standard image modification features, but the quality will be lost if you resize the layer.

Note:

- For text layers, a qualityFactor of 1 usually works best

- To convert multiple layers, use IEImage.LayersConvertToImageLayers

Syntax

         
 C#  Visual Basic  Visual C++ 
public void ConvertToImageLayer(
	double qualityFactor,
	bool cropAlpha
)
Public Sub ConvertToImageLayer ( _
	qualityFactor As Double, _
	cropAlpha As Boolean _
)
public:
void ConvertToImageLayer(
	double qualityFactor, 
	bool cropAlpha
)

Parameters

qualityFactor
Double
qualityFactor determines the size that the layer bitmap is created. A qualityFactor of 1 will create the bitmap at the current display size, whereas a qualityFactor of 2 would create it at double the display size (allowing it to be zoomed up 200% without loss of quality).
cropAlpha
Boolean
If cropAlpha is true, then it remove any alpha from the edges of the layer.
