Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: Change In Tool Pointer On Screen

May 4, 2011

Running Windows 7 - 64 bit with X5.  About 2 weeks ago PhotoPaint tools changed from a nice, easy to use circle, showing the size of the nib in use (paint brush, clone, mask brush, eraser, etc) to a representation of the tool with no indication of how large the nib is.  I've tried working through this, being busy with work, but it's very frustrating and was so much easier with the nib circles - showing the size.

This is the same thing that used to happen in V.12, and previously the solution was to return to a checkpoint in the system, re-install and all was set back to normal. It's been almost a year since switching to X5 and have no memory on how or what the process was back for V.12.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X6 :: Mouse Pointer Position Inaccurate?

Apr 14, 2013

Photo-PAINT fails to correctly determine the mouse pointer position.

No matter what you do, no matter which magnification level you're working in... any rectangle drawn is never put exactly where the mouse button was clicked or lifted. 

(1)   I've selected the image's edges while drawing a cropping rectangle. See the resulting cropping rectangle miss my selection for more than 3 pixels:

(2)  I have selected the lower edges of the gray horizontal rules while drawing a cropping rectangle. See the resulting cropping rectangle miss my selection for more than 3 pixels again:

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X6 :: Pixels Visible Only On Screen?

May 2, 2013

My problem is that when I fill something with solid colour, there are pixels shown on the screen. When I save the PCX and open it in an older version of Photo-Paint the pixels are not there.

What am I doing wrong or how could I avoid this. There are no options activated as error diffusion...

We print entrance mats and have a fix palette of 44 colours and need PCX files for the machine.

Check the screenshot: space is filled with one colour but on the lower half there are pixels/dots which should not be there...

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: How To Change Shades Of Background In Photo

Feb 1, 2012

I am trying to change the background of a photo. Not just change the color but change the color AND make it keep it's original shading, etc. I have some family photos we had made recently and they used a beige color draping for the background. The ones we had made before had a black draping. I was wondering how I could go about using some sort of additive coloring to transform the varying shades of beige to the same varying shades of black.

I have already used the masking tool to separate the background from the rest of the photo.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X6 :: Resetting The Clone Tool

Jun 7, 2013

I've used the Clone Tool a lot over the years but I've never worked out how to reset the source point without having to go back to the clone tool. I know a right click resets but it defaults to the position of the clone (why?), so I usually have to right click at least twice.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X4 :: Tool Tip Misaligned With The Mouse Selector

Aug 28, 2011

I recently have developed a problem using Photo Paint. I have already tried to use F8 and restored factory settings, and I have uninstalled and reinstalled the program. I do not have this problem when logged in as the guest user on my computer, just under my normal profile. I want to correct the settings under my normal profile.

When editing the tool tip does not line up with the selector or cross hairs. For example if I have the paint tool selected and try to paint it actually begins painting about two inches from where I want to begin painting.  See picture below: The small clear circle represents where I want to begin, but the red dot is where it paints.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X6 :: Using Clone Tool - Cursor Misalignment

Dec 17, 2012

When trying to use the clone tool, my initial cursor locations (as picked by me) appears to be about 200 pixels off. I have updated video drivers and mouse drivers to no avail. There was a posting some time back about the same issue, but it seems to be unresolved. The solution was to remove code from the registry.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: Program Which Can Be Used To Change EXIF Data

Oct 6, 2011

Any program which can be used to change the EXIF data.In particular, I want to change the shutter speed. Photomatix
apparently reads the EXIF data to determine relative UV.

The Screen and Multiply blend modes seem to change EV by about one. Naturally, this can't recover pixels at (0, 0, 0) or (255, 255, 255) but it comes close with most other values.

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?

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X6 :: Batch Process And Only Change JPG Compression Level?

I've done batch processing before, but unsure of how to simply change the jpg compress on all files in a root folder (with subdirs).  I guess I'm stuck in not knowing how to set the compression since this is done in the saving of the file and not really the script part.

Mar 1, 2013

I must have fat fingered something and I now when I click on the Eraser Tool or the Brush Mask Tool instead of getting a circle or square, I get and icon of the tool instead.  They still work but they're harder to use without seeing the circle or square depending on what's selected.  I've been using Corel for many years and never had this happen and I can't figure out how to switch back.

Lightroom :: Cursor (Pointer) Showing As Hand (Move Tool) Instead Of Pointer?

Jan 10, 2014

How do you change the characteristic of the cursor from Hand (Move Tool) back to just being a pointer?  This condition only exists in the Develope Module when my cursor is placed over the top of the photo.  When I move it off the photo it returns to a pointer.  In the Library Module it is always a pointer like I like it to be.
