CorelDraw & Photo-Paint Questions.

    I use Corel to create vector images and love using the program but I find myself using Photo-Paint very little.

    My question is if I wanted to use a some of the features in Photo-Paint such the flames would I have to convert my vector image to a raster image to do it?

    The more I work with vector images I find myself not wanting to work with raster images anymore.

    Thanks for you advice and help. Jim

    If you import or paste a vector image into photopaint, it automatically gets converted to raster.

    Rob:

    Thanks for sharing that information with me.

    If I wanted to paint flames on a vector image what other ways are there other then using just the tools in CorelDraw such as the bezier?

    Are there any other good add on programs I should be using with Corel?

    When I see some of the work others have created in Corel such as car's and things I am blown away by their work and sometimes wonder how they are doing it all in vector graphics.

    I like many of the effects you can make with Photo-Paint but I also like creating things in vector better then in raster.

    I thank you for your help. Jim Hill :thankyou:

    At this point it sounds like you haven't really explored all of the options in Corel yet.
    The only add-on I use is filter forge but it mostly works with photopaint.

    Draw is very versatile. You can mix vector and raster images. You can even place raster images inside a vector (powerclip).

    The photopaint portion is mostly for raster editing.

    Maybe some training videos would help.

    Do a search for corel draw powerclip in youtube. This is one very powerful feature in Corel.

    You can do the same for many other features like blend, envelope etc..

    A great training video for Corel Draw and PhotoPaint is from www.AdvancedArtist.com. He aslo has a bunch of free videos on his site. I just purchased the Power Training Bundle, and I think it has a lot of great information iin it.

    Designed in Corel X4
    Used Photopaint to put the fire thing in the background together.
