The Corel Photo-Paint History List feature has existed through several generations of the product now. Photo-Paint's major competitor, Adobe PhotoShop, which is strongly engraved into the hearts of most graphic designers, is only now, in it's latest version 5, catching up with a similar feature and the long overdue ability to undo multiple actions.
Having used both programs for some time now, I find that, in general, the feature set in Photo-Paint almost always strongly overshadows that of PhotoShop, but sadly, most graphic designers may never realise this due, most probably, to either habit or peer pressure.
I often feel obliged therefore, to demonstrate some of Corel Photo-Paint's
remarkable features, not just for the benefit of current end users,
but also in the hope that others may realise the enormous potential
and greater acceptance of this brilliant program.
In order to demonstrate the mechanics of the History Lists I will
need to actually create something. Thus the title of this tutorial,
"... History List PLUS". The PLUS part, in this case, will serve
to demonstrate the use of a neat Photo-Paint feature, the Object
Clipping Group. Several other features will also be shown, including
the interactive drop shadow tool and customising toolbars.
apologize to Photo-Paint users who have not yet graduated to version
8 or 9. I use version 8 and 9 exclusively now, tend to use many
version 8/9 -specific features, and can often not remember what
the equivalents were in the previous version, I must confine my
description to the current versions only. Hopefully, this and other
tutorials I aim to write may encourage you to upgrade to the current
version. OK, lets begin.
