Thanks, I understand the rip ink function but it does not help with layout correct?
I was hoping there was something simple (read cheaper) other than Photoshop.
There are cnc nesting programs all over on the net for inexpensive price was looking for something similar. Maybe I can use one of those with adaptations...
I haven't seen an autonesting for DTG.
Some RIPS allow you to setup templates. I've always done photoshop templates to align things like that. You could do the same in gimp.
