I've got an Illustrator file with several different layers, and I want to create an outline around the entire image without doing a manual trace. Anyone know?

Did a manual trace, but still wondering if there is a faster way.

Is there as option to collapse all layers?

I tried, but it just simplified everything, and ended up with four layers.

I'm sure there's an option somewhere. Erm have you tried the live trace or whatever it's called? I could swear I did something similar using that.

That is from a pixel image, not from vectors.

Does anyone else here work with Illustrator at all?

Thanks for the effort, but that does it to all of the layers individually, i need one line around the outside.
