    Working with layers in CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4
    Now you can work with layers on individual pages in CorelDRAW X4, as well as Master layers and Guide layers. If certain pages (such as the cover page) have their own specific content, it often makes sense to use separate layers for this.In the picture above you can see two pages with their own layers. You can also see the Master Page layer. Everything you put on the Desktop part of the Master Page will be shown on all pages. Using the Guides and Grids of the Master Page will reveal guides and grids on all pages. You can also use guides and layers on individual pages, so these will only apply...

    Creating a flyer in CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite X4 using the Table Tool and Live Text Preview
    The most common way to create a layout is to use guidelines to help you align all the elements in the document. But when you need to change the layout, e.g. to add an extra row of pictures, you have to do the layout all over again. You will save much time and effort by using the new table feature in CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4 to lay out your documents. That way, you can just add, remove or edit rows, columns or cells without having to start the layout all over again.Start by making a sketch of the flyer, either on paper, or as here using the Smart Drawing Tool in CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X...

    Glass Buttons Tutorial – CorelDRAW
    If you’ve found yourself wishing that you knew how to create those cool, glass-like transparent buttons popular in certain interface designs, your wish is granted. I’m talking about those pill-shaped buttons that appear to be made from colored glass or see-though plastic. At first glance, the effect looks like something created with expensive 3D modeling software, but the truth is, you can come very close to illustrating the same effect by using just two or three carefully adjusted vector shapes. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to use CorelDRAW to create glass objects lik...

    Photoshop Tutorial – Masking With Brushes
    You can come up with some really cool effects using brushes to mask with, and it’s really easy. I can’t remember where I first saw this effect done. My image probably isn’t the best one to show this off to its full capacity. I have a folder with old images that I use for these tuts and I randomly stick a pin in and use what I come out with. Try a portrait image, or if you are doing a composite this can give the image an interesting effect. Try taking the opacity of the brush down on occasion and change its size particualrly to the outside of an image. Your job to fiddle remem...

    Photoshop Tutorial – Displacement Maps
    Just what are Displacement Maps ? Displacement maps allow you to warp and distort images by moving pixels according to the guidelines set out by a predefined “map.” It’s a bit like creating a 3D effect (for want of a better word). How do they work ? A Displacement Map is always a B&W image. Black moves pixels to the right and/or down. White moves pixels left and/or up. Think of them in terms of valleys and peaks – the valleys are black and the peaks are white. Need to know stuffDisplacement maps MUST be grayscale.Displacement maps MUST be saved in the native pho...

    Photoshop Tutorial – Etched Glass Effect
    You can make this an etched glass effect, or, by inverting the filter, make it appear as though the shape/type/whatever is moulded in the glass. Because my glass is light, I will be using a black filled shape. If your bottle or glass is dark, the type/shape/whatever, would need to be white. So lets get straight on with it. You can click through on my glass image below to get the larger start image, or you can use one of your own. Just remember that any settings I use are relevant to this file 720 X 1000 @72dpi.Your first step will be to create a new layer above the b/ground layer and then fi...
