I am creating a mask in Photo Paint and feathering the edges. Everything works fine up until I "Finish Editing" and the object is returned to Corel Draw. The mask has shifted up from the image and the wrong area is masked. If I save the image from Photo Paint and re-open it it's fine...just not when it's sent back to Corel Draw.
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...
Below is a screenshot of something that sometimes happens when using the Mask Transform tool in Photo-Paint X5 (Home & Student). It only does it when dragging the mask from the right. Is this a known phenomenon? Can anything be tried to overcome it? I wondered it might be anything to do with graphics card compatibility ..or just my computer in some other respect.

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.
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'm using my corelphoto paint x3 for a year now and it is working fyn then on one occassion i don't know but while editing an image, i suddenly discovered that my effect tools, paint tools, clone tools wont work or wont make changes on the image i'm editing... i've already checked the menus and settings but still no work..i also tried reinstalling the program but still it's all the same..
I'm having trouble using the paint brushes in photo paint x6. i open a JPEG or bitmap then use a paint brush to paint on the image but there is no paint. do i have to use a mask now? I tried copying a dupe for a second layer to see if that worked but nix. i still have x4 and i do it there. but what's with x6? all the other tools work but the paint brush.
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 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.
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 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)?
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.

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?
