Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: Converting Bitmaps To Vectors

Oct 23, 2012

I have simple outline drawings - like stars or paisleys - that I scan into PhotoPaint X5. So, to turn it into a vector drawing, I manually fill the outline drawing with the paintbrush, convert it to 1 bit, import it into CorelDraw, use the Trace Bitmap - outline trace - clip art, then do a hairline outline and remove the fill. I end up with a hairline outline of the original object that I can send to my laser. The objects must remain the same size as the original drawing.

Here's why I do some of what I outlined above. First, I manually fill the drawing because if I try to do the trace bitmap in CorelDraw X5 using the outline trace, it traces both the inside and the outside of the original line drawing because the line is thick. If I try the Trace Bitmap and select Centerline Trace, I the result is a jaggy line which won't work.

I think what I need most is a way to fill the object automatically rather than paint the inside of it. I thought I could just select the object in PhotoPaint and click on the fill, but it seems that the "object" is the outline drawing plus the background, so the fill ends up being the whole "object" including the background. I can Lasso the outline drawing and move it around on the background, but can't figure out how to do much else.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X6 :: Use A Photo Frame From Connect?

May 12, 2013

I would like to use a photo frame from connect, and keep it in the Effects>Creative>Frame menu of frames.  I have downloaded and clicked and dragged the frame to my image, but I would like to reuse this frame.  Is it possible to add it to the menu?  I can download it to the menu - but it is a temporary item in the list of views to the right, which can be replaced from any of the permanent members of the dropdown selection of frames on the left of the Frame menu.  I would like a frame to become one of those "permanent frames."

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X6 :: Connect App Does Not Display Vector (clip Art) Previews

Dec 15, 2012

I bought Corel Draw X5 sometime back and had no issues.Then two weeks ago I purchased the Corel Draw X6 upgrade to take advantage of the 64 Bit design and the  Free Corel Web Designer add on.My system is an AMD Phenom 965 x4 with a  Win 7 HP 64 Bit OS loaded... 8GB RamI did non uninstall CD X5, when I loaded the CD X6So the problem....In Connect when I open a folder with pic files (raster) the Viewpane icons display  normally...when I open a folder with Clip Art (vector) files each file displays the same default thumbnail with filename text caption...  In my previous CD X5 32 bit install the Connect app worked with out errors displaying a Clip Art vector preview. Now after installing X6 64 bit, Connect in both x5 32 & x6 64 does not display previews for the clip-art .

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X4 :: Why Import Command Under File Menu Grayed Out

Jun 19, 2011

I tried to first open a KDC file, which is a RAW file from my Kodak Camera, by clicking on File>Open but it didn't work. So then I attempted to open it using "Import". That was when I found out Import was grayed out. Why would that be? I just installed the program and this happens! Is there a setting I need to change?

Corel CONNECT X5 :: Connect Search Doesn't Recognize Keywords In CDR Files

Feb 15, 2012

i have been a long user of romcat... but would like to use the new corel connect. i use the folders selected to my HD folder that has all my cdr files (20yrs worth from ver 1). when i type in a search word that is in 100's of my cdr files keywords... connect doesnt display them. In romcat it does display them, even older files, with the same key word. connect only shows cdr files that have in its file name part of the search word, but seems to ignore the key words in the files.

I have all my job files with important key words within them, but the actual file names are simple job numbered names. i noticed on searches from X5 content on dvd, the files also are just numbers, but the search finds key words.

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 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 X4 :: Colors Not The Same When Going From Draw To Photo?

May 16, 2011

I am making a background image for a website in Draw.  The main part is Black.

I export as a jpg and the image looks fine when I view it.

Then if I open it in photo-paint the black is not black, but rather has a grey color to it.  The image is exported fine and looks great when viewing it with the normal windows photo viewer program.

Something is happening when it is opened up in photo paint I think.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: Creating GIF Animation

Sep 12, 2011

I was trying to make an animated GIF with 30 static GIF images I made with PhotoPaint X5 itself.

The crash happened every time I tried to close the program without saving the animated file – which I couldn't make due to not achieving what I intended (I'll have to learn a bit more about background and objects).

It happened on a 64-bit Windows 7 Professional system with 12 GB of DDR3 RAM.
