Corel PHOTO-PAINT X3 :: Underline Text While Anti-aliasing Off
Sep 14, 2011
I have a weird problem with underlining my text while having anti-aliasing off. (Photo-paint X3, version 126.96.36.1999)
When I have a large block of text and the underlined word is in the middle, the underline is displaying correctly as 1px line with a 1px space from the baseline. But when the text is either at the end or alone, it looks like there is a 2px underline without any vertical space at all.
See the image attached for clarity.
Font: Arial, size: 12pt, anti-alias off
It happens on two different computers, one with Windows 7 32-bit and one with Windows XP 32-bit.
I'm trying to rotate a small object in Paint. When I use the rotate toolbar to enter the angle I need, the object rotates just like I want. Then I hit the apply button and some pretty heavy handed anti-aliasing is applied and the object is essentially destroyed. I've been using Paint for quite a long time so I figured there must be an option to turn this off. I can't find one. I even added the anti-aliasing button to the rotate toolbar and turned it off but that doesn't make any difference.
Essentially, what I want when I rotate an object is the chunky, pixelated preview, not the final anti-aliased so much you can't tell what it even is anymore final product.
At this point, I'm going to have to resort to rotating the object and taking a screenshot of the preview and using that instead of the mess that the final result is.
Here is what I want to do. I have the letters 'XC' which I've played with a bit to look the way I want and due to anti-aliasing has nice edges. Now I want to basically fill those letters with an image. I can't figure out how to do this and keep the nice anti-aliased edges.
1. load image as base layer 2. Create new layer with text in it 3. using magic wand select a threshold that has smoothest edges on text layer 4. select image layer and copy the selection area... notice the hard edges of the finished result in the attached example. I want it nice and smooth and anti-aliased.
How to do this more elegantly? I've attached the basics of what I'm doing and the result.
I've recently been trying to make a picture and I need Anti-Aliasing disabled for it. Now I have it disabled, but whenever I try to do effects like Dent it adds some Anti-Aliasing in it even thought Anti-Aliasing is disabled.
When I do use Dents I even try setting quality to 0 but that doesn't seem to do much. Now I may be missing something here and which is most likely true but I can't seem to find out how to permanently disable Anti-Aliasing for everything. It's disabled right now but whenever I try to use Effects it uses Anti-Aliasing which I don't want it to. Any way to have Effects not us Anti-Aliasing or to completely disabled it?
I've just started using Paint.Net, primarily for pixel work. I needed a program that had the curve line tool but with extra features than the ones provided in Microsoft Paint. But it seems that I've came to a problem, the lines are anti-aliased, even at 1 pixel big. I was wondering if there was a option to turn the aliasing off for the line/curve tool.
Whenever I type in Photoshop for the last few months, all the text is pixelated and blurry. The problem is impervious to anti-aliasing and resolution changes. The only difference is that with anti-aliasing the image is blurry and pixelated and without, it's just extremely pixelated. Why this problem started, I have no memory of changing a setting that would have caused this.
I've done everything I can think of, including re-setting Photoshop completely to original settings. Even files that I created before the problem began now have blurry text when opened. I esentially can't do anything with Photoshop right now and it is extremely frustrating. The following images are of the text WITH anti-aliasing and then without, both at 12 pt, 400%, 300 ppi.
The text in question will not be html, just text, mainly Times Roman and black. The graphics I produce should look clear online and I don't know which is best - sharp/crisp/strong - can I get some clarification on this?
Text is allowed only on the outside of a rectangle shape. The text cursor disappears when I try to enter it into the rectangle and when I place it on the edge of the rectangle, it rurns into a slanted "A" and allows texting on the border of the rectangle.

I've just started using X4 for the first time and what I'm trying to do is add text to the last frame of a gif. I got the text in and see where the colour changing tools are but for some reason even if I made everything red, the text colour still comes out completely different. It seems to be matching it to the colour scheme of the GIF itself. I just want to text to be red.
I don't often work with paragraph text, but I'm creating a booklet of about 32 pages. When I paste my text into Draw, it automatically creates as many pages as are necessary to display all of it. But when I change text borders or enlarge the font, it doesn't add any more pages. If I manually add pages, the text doesn't continue to them. All the original text is still there, but the excess is hidden within the border on the last page. I can manually add pages, of course, and cut and paste my text from one page to the next as necessary, but is there a way to automatically continue the text onto new pages?
When I'm saving my file as PSD I have strange error with "nice" description.The only way to avoid it is search and delete design elements - I found that its caused by one text object.
The question is what can be wrong with text object to generate this error. I can edit text and do everything with it but I cant save it as PSD. Its hard to find it in big complicated designs. I think similiar problem was in Corel Photopaint X3. Seems like it left to X6 version.Bug exists in all files with text objects.

I have a web design comp in Photo-Paint X5 with all of my layers nice and organized, and some are hidden. If I edit a text layer, upon exiting the edit all of my hidden layers reappear, but only within a "group". It's very annoying to have to go back and hide all of those layers again.
My text was working fine til today, now when I try typing text, it is showing as a blank box, until I click outside of it, then it shows as a blue dotted line on the text. Then when I send it to the laser, it is not there!( laser engraver or the printer). I just want the text to be normal, like it was 2 days ago! Before, I could click anywhere, type, and it showed up with no problems!
I scanned some text hand-written with a magic marker. i use threshold to get the artwork plain black and white, select the white with the magic wand, select similar and then delete. i'm left with the solid black image with crisp edges. i have marquee tools, lasso tools, and magic wand set to anti-aliasing off. feather i set to 0.
when i rotate the image to make it level, the image gets anti-aliased. to try to correct that i select the pixels of the image with command click on the layer, delete that layer and make a new layer. then i just have shape of the image created by the selection tool. when i use fill to try to fill it in, the image is anti-aliased. all i want to do is fiil in exactly inside the shape that i have selected.
The Text tool has options for anti-aliasing - Strong, Crisp, etc. Is there anything similar when filling paths?
I am filling two paths with a common edge; when the Anti-alias box is un-checked, the border looks ragged, but when the box is checked, the border looks grey. I can get the results I want by filling twice with anti-aliasing turned on, but I would like to have the box "Half-checked".
I've just set up CS4 and my brushes are not anti aliasing properly. There are no soft edges on any of them. I'm able to get a pressure sensitive opacity change on the stroke but the edges are all pixelated.
Here is an image (this is a soft brush. notice none of the feathering/anti aliasing is there): ...
I am trying to transform a sprite which is about 32x32 and while using Photoshop's free transform tool to size it to something like 600x600 it becomes horribly distorted (thanks to the anti-aliasing). I need to turn it off while transforming, yet I see no option.
I'm looking for a way to do some anti-aliasing on my drawing. I have a drawing that I scanned in and I cut out a few components of my scan in MS Paint. I did this by drawing the outline manually in one color and then coloring the background with that same color and then copying it with that color as the see-through color. The problem is that the contours look terrible on a black background since MS Paint can't help with anti-aliasing. Instead, I've got these cut-out drawings of objects with a thin white glow around them. That is, when I cut them out, it was extremely hard to move along the lines EXACTLY. I tended to cut more outside the lines than in, and so I took a lot of the white background with it. I need a way in PhotoShop to get rid of those white lines and then do some better anti-aliasing. How can I do this?
I'm copying some vector art (monochromatic flats) from Illustrator and pasting into Photoshop as Smart Object. I am making selections from the flats to create individual paths to color however the edges aren't lining up. I end up with gaps between the edges and the lines are jagged.
Can someone please explain anti-aliasing? I am following a few video tutorials, one is saying turn it on and the other says to turn it off.
I used gimp 2.6 for awhile just to do simple isolations for various projects.
Recently my gimp 2.6 crashes while trying to load gradients, so i upgraded to 2.8 and all of the brushes that were in 2.6 are gone and NONE of them have anti-aliasing edges so i can isolate things with fuzzy alpha edges.
how to turn this back on or create a brush that has anti-aliasing edges?
Here at work we have recently upgraded from CorelDRAW 12 to X5. While this has come with plenty of great benefits (able to open newer versions of AI files), it seems some things are still present (stability issues). I actually work on a Mac at home for my freelance stuff so maybe I'm just used to the reliability that comes with a Mac. I enjoy PCs too but with years of experience with both I'd be lying if I said PCs are on par with what Apple brings to the table. Especially when it comes to graphic design work.
So this brings me to the problem of spot color anti-aliasing in the enhanced view of X5. The first two pictures below show how CorelDRAW 12 handled spot colors. These are direct SCREENSHOTS that I cropped in Photoshop, not exports. And I did no extra editing.
There is basically no difference between how the Pantone colors display on screen and how the RGB colors display. Which is great and what you'd expect, right?
However, let us step into X5 for a minute with the exact same colors, using the exact same palette.
Obviously there is a difference here. For some reason X5 has decided to anti-alias the Pantone colors in some weird way so that I get a tiny white outline (no the shapes don't have outlines). And if you look closely at the smaller purple box at the bottom you will see that even when I use the exact same pantone color from the exact same palette but with one color named differently, I get the white outline. The smaller box's color within is named '276 CV' while the outer box's color is named 'PANTONE 276 CV'.
How does simply naming a color effect how it displays on screen? Seems like a bug/glitch to me.
I know what is trying to be done here but why take a step backwards from CorelDRAW 12. I have a hard time using CorelDRAW as it is but as a graphic designer I need to know how something is going to look on screen without this unnecessary anti-aliasing going on.
So my questions are:
1.) Why does this do this in X5 but not 12? 2.) How to maybe turn it off? (I know I can view it in Normal view mode and the colors are fine but then my text is screwed up).
When I create a rectangle shape the edge is blured slightly with one pixel of color. How do I make sure the rectangle is sharp? I cannot find the option to click off anti-aliasing on the option bar in CS4, anyone know where it went?
