the bitmap objects importing photos and pictures and the annotations used to add comments and text to start drawing vectors you can use all the tools inside the third section of the tool box with the freehand tool you can draw lines and closed shapes freehand by clicking and dragging on your workspace you can also draw straight lines by clicking twice the polyline tool works just like the freehand tool with the difference that you go on dropping lines and curves all connected through the last node fixed to finish drawing just close the shape or double-click on the last point the 3-point curve is used to draw arcs click and hold on your pointer to drop the segment then release to define the shape and click on the drawing when the arc is good the b-spline bus’ ear or the pin tool are used to draw curves in different ways b-spline drops curves through consecutive segments the bus’ ear and the pin tool scroll curbs according to the nodes fixed and the tangent directions defined besides them we won’t see
these in this video the artistic media tool is used to draw freehand with a special style and trace chosen from the property bar changing the brush type between brush and sprayer all the other tools from rectangle to polygon are used to drop regular shapes such as polygons and ellipses by clicking and dragging on the work space CorelDraw has several drawing aids to help you at growing your vectors quickly and easily such as the rulers the grid on the work space and the guidelines which are dashed horizontal or vertical axis used as reference created by clicking and dragging from the rulers all these drawing aids can be turned on or off by using their respective buttons on the standard bar in addition you can use snap to inside the standard bar to enable snapping to the grid the guidelines or important objects key points such as nodes or points on edges represented through squares midpoints through triangles and centers through circles to draw more precisely use your mouse wheel to zoom in and out on
the workspace around your pointer now let’s see how to adjust and edit the vector objects on the document enable the pick tool and click on the object to select it at this point you adjust its appearance by using either the property bar on top or the object properties panel on the right use the property bar to adjust the line thickness trace or add any arrow shape on the endpoints in case of regular shapes you can set the kind of shape and find the corners use the object properties panel to adjust the object appearance in detail under outline correct the line thickness color and style under fill add filling to close shapes and choose its properties more below use uniform fill to add a solid color and fountain fill to apply a color gradient choosing its kind at the bottom and its direction through its preview then click on the markers to set
the color to use and the transparency percentage use vector and bitmap pattern fill to apply ready-made patterns or images under transparency apply a flat transparency or use any gradient or patterns as seen for the filling options the second button inside the tool box collects all the tools used to edit and apply effects on vectors by clicking and dragging on them in this video we will see just the shape tool when you enable the shape tool click on the drawing to select it to start editing you can adjust the corners of a rectangle move each node or shape a curve by dragging the blue anchors tangent to its nodes you can add new nodes and further customize
the shape by double-clicking on the vector edge inside CorelDraw you can also adjust and edit pictures here called bitmap objects you can import these by dragging and dropping them inside your document or you can go to file import and browse for your image at this point click and drag on the document to define its size and position on it each image gets a vector contour that delimits its borders which can be edited with the shape tool just seen in order to crop the image as you like on the property bar use edit bitmap to edit the picture with corel photo-paint and trace bitmap to transform your picture into groups of drawings with colored fill on the object properties panel you can use the transparency panel to apply transparency effects on the picture as seen for vectors to apply advanced Corrections and effects you can use all
the features inside the bitmaps tab for example you can use image adjustment lab to adjust color temperature ten and saturation including brightness and contrast levels remember that you can undo any effect or change applied by using ctrl + Z inside CorelDraw you can add text and annotations with the text tool when you enable it click and drag on the workspace to create a text box which defines where the text content can spread then type inside and adjust the text properties from the property bar such as font family size and style these changes affect just the piece of text that is selected in addition use the object properties panel to set the text color its background color and alignment you can add any outline applying a solid color or any gradient as seen for vector filling in case you see the text box in a red color make sure to size it properly with
its black nodes in order to show what’s hidden whereas if text is covered by other objects you can adjust its visibility from the object manager panel on the right by dragging and moving such object up or down in respect to other elements now let’s see how to manage and edit vectors images and annotations first of all select the object with the pick tool then click and drag it to move and use its black nodes to scale if you click once again on the object its black nodes change in order to skew and rotate the object is rotated according to the center point that you can move as you like click once again to come back to the scaling nodes to move scale and rotate the selected object precisely just use the left side of the property bar typing and applying with the Enter key to cut copy paste or delete a selected object just right click on it to apply modifications on multiple objects at
