To Make a Short Story Long
When I started to write this
tutorial I began with " At Last ! A short tutorial!".
Corel Photo-Paint provides so many different ways to achieve desired results - it really amazes me.
Although different tools can
often achieve similar results, each of them has its own specific emphasis
towards arriving at a particular end point via a specific mechanism. Some
are much better for some jobs than others. Which tool you use then, depends
entirely on what you wish to achieve. I hope that you too have seen this
while undertaking the exercises in this tutorial.
Although we examined many very useful tools for colour alteration in this tutorial, there are quite a few more that I did not even mention, or merely glossed over. Some are single click type functions, some are considered more to be Effects type tools, and others are more suited to single pixel type operations. I tried to stay pretty much with those used for global type operations, or for changes to whole objects or planes.
The others are worth mentioning though, and I hope that you will take a look at them in due course. They are no less valuable than those already covered here. For colour manipulations, you should also take a look at:
That lot should keep you busy for a while. But also totally enthralled by discovering the image magic you can create with all these powerful tools at your disposal.
Until, next time -
