Corel PHOTO-PAINT X6 :: Open / Save Transparent PNGs Without Loss Of Image Information?

Feb 28, 2013

Till X3 Photo-Paint opened and saved transparent PNGs as a seperate image with attached mask.Example:I have an image and load a B/W mask into it.

When I save this as PNG and reload it in X3, Photo-Paint displays again exactly what I have just saved:

However when I open this same PNG in X6, the image and mask get merged into a single object:

It's in effect doing automatically a "create object from selection" function and discards then the background.Why? I can't work with the full background image anymore, because the transparent parts are missing, and the mask is also gone. Is there no way to open the full PNG, without any merging and deleting of masks, just the way X3 was doing it?Also, the only way to save a transparent PNG in X6 is to check "save only selected objects"? When I don't check this, but still check "transparency" in the PNG export dialogue, then the mask won't be saved nonetheless.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: How To Save TIFF As GIF With Transparent Background

Jul 5, 2011

I am trying to save a tif file to gif and at the same time setting the white background transparent. I did this in Corel Photo Paint 11 with the following

Call PhotoPaint11App.CorelScript.FilterGIF(0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0) Call PhotoPaint11App.CorelScript.FileSave(gWebFolderMain & gMVID & "-NakkeO.gif", PHOTOPAINT.cdrFilter.cdrGIF, 0)

Now in Corel Photo Paint X5 this doesn't work any more. What have changed and what am I doing wrong. According to documentation it seems to be correct.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: Crop / Save - Original Image Saved

Aug 29, 2012

A digi image, cropped (crop tool), resized (resample), and saved (save as). Everything on 'default' (usual settings for this) or as I would like. Close and re-open, the image shows as the cropped image, but the thumbnail is the original.

I bought a new camera card today, having run out of settings to try. Took a pic, copied over, and it cropped and saved fine. So I went back to those taken yesterday, still full image thumbnail. Took new ones on new card, but full image thumbnails. Recropped the original photo that saved earlier today with cropped thumbnail - the full image is now in its thumbnail.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X6 :: Failing To Save Image Files Doesn't Pop Up Error Message?

Mar 11, 2013

Trying to edit and save this file fails silently, because Photo-PAINT does get confused by a file name like this: "filename.morename.extension". Nothing gets saved.

The actual file name taken from my example file is: "Flag_of_Germany.svg.png".

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: Cannot Save / Save As / Export Files

Apr 27, 2010

While "Draw" of Coreldraw X5 is working well, Corel Photopaint X5 does not "Save", "Save as..." or "Export" files. It just does nothing, when I choose to save a file under "something.cpt". It works, as long as it is a JPG, but not as a CPT. I am working on a Win7, with CorelX5 in german. Support told me to reinstall.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: X4 Won't Save As JPEG

Aug 13, 2011

The plague has struck my X4. I have done absolutely nothing to the computer in over two years. I can't save a file as a JPEG to most folders using Save AS. It will save a file as a JPEG to the TEMP folder -- but the preview in which I can set compression does not show up. However, it still works well if I Export to Web.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: Open Compressed AVI Files

Jun 22, 2011

One of the reasons I have always liked PhotoPaint is because one can do some amount of video editing with it which is handy for animations or title frames to use in video editing programs. PhotoPaint has always been my preferred tool for making animated gifs from avi or mov files.

I see that it will open uncompressed avi or mov files but if they are compressed, it won't open them properly; such as showing the frames as solid black.

Is there a way to import additional codecs or filters or whatever for avi and mov into x5?

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: Quadtones Won't Save As TIFFs / Option Unavailable

Apr 14, 2012

I wanted to convte an image to a quadtone then paste the original color image as a new object-layer beneath it, then experiment with the two with blending and masking techniques.  But,When I try to save the quadtone image as a tiff, the option to do so isn't there.  Only CPT, PSD and a few other options are avilable.

When I copy and paste the original image as a new object, it's also automatically converted to the quadtone of the layer beneath it.

Paint.NET :: View Technical Information About Currently Open Image

Feb 8, 2012

I didn't see any way to view technical information about the currently open image. Is there such a dialog, and if not, can you add it to the next version ? Would really come in handy, especially if you can additionally add complete EXIF data viewing/editing support in the same properties dialog. If this latter bit is too much, even a basic dialog displaying the image properties would be very nice indeed.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X6 :: TIFF Image Corrupt

May 25, 2012

I am evaluating x6 and considering upgrading. I have been a daily Corel user since the 1990's and usually do every-other upgrades.

Anyhow, I am having a problem exporting TIFF images. The bottom part of the image is corrupt. White band. Interesting, if I open the TIFF in Corel PhotoPaint it's perfectly fine and fancy, but If I preview in Explorer I get the band, emailing it the recipient complains about the white band which obliterates the bottom 100px or so.

As far as I know the Adobe TIFF spec has not changed since 1991, maybe 1996..

So is this a limitation with the trial upgrade or a bug or a weird harold situation?

Everything else seems great, I'm excited about running corel 64 bit on an 8 core machine with 16 gb, It does seem like there have been some things removed which were previously very useful for production, and now they are gone or perhaps just missing. For example, how do i pop out the pallette and see all the colors at once? I think now I have to scroll at the bottom and it's annoying as heck.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: Changing Colors In Image

Dec 27, 2011

I am designing a logo of the sun rising over the earth from the perspective of earth orbit.  The general look will be of the sun(looks like a star) illuminating a narrow crescent of the earth.  I am working on a picture, trying to adapt it for the logo.  I need to change the white sunlight to be yellow/red - can't seem to isolate the colors from the mix of earth colors or black background colors they mix with.  Another thing I need is to use a white background instead of the black background of the picture taken from space.  Is there a way to convert all the colors that are a mix of the black background and something else to be changed to be as if the background was white?
