This tutorial has been written for CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite X5. While similar features might be available in previous releases, the tutorial will be fully applicable to CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 only.
Corel® PHOTO-PAINT™ X5 has added three new features for modifying your photos. The Vibrance effect is great for balancing color saturation. It adds richness to colors with low saturation while maintaining colors with high saturation. The Grayscale effect is ideal for removing the saturation of an object, layer or region of a photo. It also lets you choose the colors used in the grayscale conversion. The Photo Filter effect lets you simulate the result of having a camera lens filter installed when a picture was taken. We will also take a look at the Tone curve and how it can be used to enhance you photos. With these tools, the novice photographer can look like a professional!

Corel Painter has a great tool for handling details, such as texture, foliage, or stones. In fact, if you’ve been using Photoshop custom brushes for this kind of work, you may be surprised to learn that Painter has a custom brush capability, and a pretty darned good one, too. Check out the following image. Can you believe it took me less than a minute, starting with a blank canvas? No cloning around this time, folks. It’s time to learn about Painter’s most well-kept secret: the Image Hose.
