Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: Color Management Settings

Apr 24, 2012


I recently calibrated my monitor with a Spyder 4 Express. I process my RAW images in ACDSee Pro, saving them as tiffs - ProPhoto RGB. Yet when I open the same images in PP, skin tones are quite saturated and I'm wondering why? Prior to calibrating my monitor, everything was normal across all my programs, as it is now in ACDSee Pro.  But not with PP and OnOne.  Something has changed between the programs and I can't see what.  I've attached my current Color Management settings from PP.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: Color Management Printing RGB / CMYK And Separations

Nov 11, 2012

This discussion is on using RGB file creation techniques to output to ink jet devices. I posted the comments below the link because color management off always pops up in the conversation as it turns to non-postscript devices so I wanted to circumvent the side bar conversation.


First let's get this straight, I've written it and said it about a thousand times, you cannot turn off color management.

When you select simulate color management off in the default application color management dialog, CorelDRAW simply utilizes a different set of color management settings. The rules of color management never change!  The application requires guidelines on color and still must have rules that govern conversions, PERIOD.

These rules are not different, only the engines, rendering intents and profiles change. These setting in X5 and X6 can be, in some cases adjusted to simulate previous setting in versions prior to X5 that were labeled color management off, but this label in older versions (X4 and older) were deceptive in their nature, color management was never turned off, just set to a specific configuration.

Simulate color management off (in X5/X6) uses wide gamut cmyk simulation as the CMYK profile, it disengages the color engines (setting CorelDRAW to another internally controlled process) and sets the interface to RGB. It does not turn color management off.

These settings have many uses for industries such as laser engraving and screen printing separations and I support their continued use. Do not confuse this and use these settings for professional output using press work, ink jets or digital printers.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: How To Correct Scanned CMYK Images Originally Printed Out Of Register

Jun 10, 2012

I'm working on a job that requires recreating vintage box artwork. This involves recomposing scanned images into a new layout, recreating text from matched fonts - that sort of thing. Unfortunately, some of the scanned images (originally printed offset press in cmyk) were printed with one or more of the plates out of register, creating a halo effect on one side. Can this be corrected in PhotoPaint? Is there a way to create each channel as an object which could be moved to realign the colors and then flattened again?

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: Do Color Tint On A Photo?

Jan 4, 2012

Is there an easy way to do color tints on a photo in PhotoPAINT? And by that I don't mean just correcting the tint, I mean converting a regular photo into one that has a single color tint (e.g., yellow, red, etc.). I've tried graying it out and then adding a transparent color layer over it, but I'm not getting the result I'm looking for.

Also, while I'm at it, are there any (current) books out that cover PhotoPAINT in depth? I know that the official DRAW book has a section on it, but it's pretty basic.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: Non Contiguous Color Selection

Oct 17, 2011


I have a grayscale image (pencil sketch with pencil shading) of a glass object in a CorelDraw document. I'm tired of having to go to Photoshop Elements to edit images in CorelDraw docs, so I opened it in Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 from within CorelDraw to edit. I want to change the image's 'white' (actually slightly gray) background to a color appearing in the CorelDraw document.

I tried using the Magic Wand to select all of the 'white' background, but the popup says the WAND only selects ADJACENT pixels! Isn't there a way to select ALL pixels of a given color like in Photoshop E. (conitguous/non-contiguous)? If there is a simple way (without the Wand) to change the background color of an image (not of a PP doc!!), I would nevertheless also like to know how to select non-contiguous pixels of a particular color with the wand. Also how to invert a selection. Also, how to select a color in CorelDraw to use as a fill color in PhotoPaint (both X5).

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: PNG Export Without Trace Of Background Color?

May 19, 2011

how to make a PNG in PP so that there is not a residual trace of the background color.  Notice on the picture below.  There should be the white circle around the red circle, but then there is also the trace of yellow, which is the background color (and what I chose under PNG Export as the Transparency > Image Color.  This has always happened for me using PP and PNGs, and I assume there must be some setting to avoid that so there's a smooth PNG export, but I can't seem to figure it out.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X6 :: How To Color Balance Two Photos To Match

Dec 10, 2013

I've got two different color balance problems. The first is where I have two photos that I want to match the lighting in each.

The second is where I have a 'control' and I want another photo or print to 'match' it.

Currently I'm having the second problem. A customer brought in an original painting for us to scan and make holiday cards from. But they also brought in a photo print from a local chain and they have asked me to match the color representation from that print.

It is duller, the blues are purple and it is over all darker. Personally, I think the photo is a horrible representation of the painting. BUT IT IS WHAT THE CUSTOMER WANTS.

I've scanned in both the photo and the original drawing. If I print the photo it matches the color of the scan. (but is the wrong crop size and can't be used for the card.)  How do I draw color out of that and get my original to 'match' other than just using my eyes? (which is about impossible for me today) I normally use 'sample/target balance' in corel PhotoPaint, but you can't do that between two layers OR between two files. This would be a great change to make in x7 or an update.

Current System: i3 3.07ghz, 3gb ram, Windows 7 32 bit with all updates and X6

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: Bitmap Effect - How To Change Color

May 11, 2011

I am upgrading some macro code (actually VB.Net code in standalone .Net 3.5 Windows Forms application) from Corel Photo Paint XI to Corel PhotoPaint X5.

My previous CorelScript.BitmapEffect("Replace Colors", "ReplaceColorsEffect.V11 RepClrInColor=5:255:255:255,RepClrOutColor=5:0:0:0,RepClrIgnoreGrayscl=1,RepClrSingleClr=1,RepClrRange=0")
used to replace the white color in a bitmap to black.

This doesn't seem to work in X5. Is there some documentation available on the use of Bitmap Effect?

Photoshop :: C6 - Get Warning That (No Color Management) Setting For Printer Isn't Supported?

Jun 2, 2012

I'm using Photoshop Extended CS6. I'm printing to either an Epson Stylus Pro 9900 or an Epson SP4900. In the print dialog, I get a warning I haven't seen in a long time. It says the setting "No Color Management" at the printer is not supported. This is patently false. I am given a link to download the Adobe Color Print Utility (which gives abominable results; I know this from repeated uses in the past), and a service note saying this issue is for Photoshop CS5. Clearly there is a problem, possibly a bug.
I have never had CS5 installed on this machine. I do have PS CS5.5 and PS CS6 on this machine (I have used all versions of CS in various suites from the start of the product line). Of course "no printer management on printer/Photoshop manages color" works..

Photoshop Elements :: Printing With Color Management?

Feb 9, 2013

I'm unable to get correct results in printing through Photoshop Element 11 and my printer Epson R1800.Though, it works correctly with other software that support colorsync (ex: DXO Optic Pro 8).
I tried every combination with my ICC profile : "let photshop manage colors", "let printer manage colors", ... Each time the resulting print is too dark.Even worth : when I print several time the same photo with the same parameter under Photoshop Element, I don't get the same result each time.
On DXO, I print by activating colorsync with the same profile I use with Photoshop Element and the result is always great with each time correct colors rendition.
My configuration is : iMac 24 2007 + Mountain Lion + Epson R1800.

Lightroom :: 3 - Color Management Printing To Epson 9900?

Nov 23, 2011

I am a Pro Photographer, and have been printing via Photoshop for years, and am trying to print to my Epson 9900 through LR3.
Workflow is simple, Nikon .nef (Raw) files are imported into LR3 - all monitors are calibrated w/ pro-grade color management colorimeters/software ....
Everything looks great on screen, and the TIF files exported and picked up in Photoshop and then printed, look great.
However, my files printed directly from LR look horrible - as if color profiles are being applied twice somewhere, but I can't figure out where.
Images are shot in AdobeRGB color space.
Color management in the Epson 9900 print driver is turned OFF. (same as every other program I print from)
My LR3 screen for printing looks like this:
