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.
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.
I am not a master of Photo-Paint, I use Draw for most tasks, but here I think Photo-Paint would be the right tool. I want to resample an image and then add a 7 px drop shadow to it and then export it as a PNG for web (transparent drop shadow). The problem I encounter is at the export stage, as the whole paper size is exported, not just the object selected, as is the case in Draw. Is there any other option than to place the object in the upper left corner (coordinates 0, 0 ) resize the paper size to fit and then export?
Every time I want to save an PNG image with no background corel keeps merging the object with the background, so it creates a white background. Even if I only open and click save a png image it merges with the background.
I am trying to delete an object background to create a gif of an object (the object in this case is a broken cell phone). Everything appears to be gone BUT...there are these flowing blue items around the object. When I export the file to gif...those items are still attached to the object.
I have used photo shop and have not had any issue removing a background around an object.
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.
I think I've found a bug: PPX6 is not honoring the "maintain size" option while exporting as PNG.
Create a new 24bits RGB 600dpi image. Export it as PNG Check the "maintain size" option (size controls get disabled) Now change the "resolution" to 96. Size now shows 0px 0px and scale 1%. Uncheck the "maintain size" option and mark it again. DPIs are now something like -491.
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.
system configuration:Win 7 Pro 64bit, Intel i5-2500, 8 GB RAM, 128 SSD SAMSUNG + 2TB on hard drives.
What is the best way to take the background out of a photo or a portrait and keep the photo? Also would like to be able to keep the edge nice so when am laser engraving it will look nice, and will be able to engrave well.
I am using Photo Paint 9 to edit photos I took of some watercolors I did. Many of the photos are of a single animal on a white background (similar to the California state flag). When I printed many of these out they had a greenish tint (not a printer problem) so I went to Image--Adjust--Color Balance.... I adjusted the cursor on the Magenta/Green bar to -15 (towards Magenta) and hit ok. The problem is, now when I print, the image is ok but the background which I want to be pure white now has a pinkish (magenta?) tint to it.
Is there any way to isolate the image and get the background pure white again?
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).
I would like to be able to change my screen color. It opens in white. For a lot of my work it would be easier for me to see what I am doing with a darker screen color. Can I change the screen color from white to a darker color.
I am trying to create a neat desktop wallpaper for my work. I downloaded a JPG that I like alot, but its blue with lines and other slashes, etc through it. I want to change these blue shades to red shades, but its a JPG...
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.
When modifying bitmap all of a sudden my colors in my standard pallet change to just a few colors. When I try to open another pallet (standard RGB or something else) it won't give me back the colors. I have to save my work and start PP again. Then I can go on.
I selected interesting areas of raster using color mask so I have about 300 areas masked. I'd like to change their color (from 100% black to 30% black). How can I fill them all together with new color (not painting them one by one)?
