transparent background with bitmaps

Asked this before, but I must be missing something. Would like to make the background transparent

with a bitmap image for use on coloured backgrounds. Illustrator has very simple steps to execute this.

Does x4 ? Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Sample is so we are on same page(want to eliminate white background)

thnx in advance

  • If you want the white area to be deleted you can use the Cutout Lab in Photopaint or use the Magic Wand tool (click on the white areas) and invert the selection. Copy and paste this into Draw.

  • In CorelDraw: Select your bitmap. Click EDIT BITMAP on the toolbar to
    open bitmap in PhotoPaint.
    In PhotoPaint: Use the Magic Wand Mask Tool to select the white
    background. Use CTRL+Shift+I to invert your mask. Click SAVE. Close
    PhotoPaint and go back to CorelDraw where your white background will be
    gone.

    when I do this, I get the white bg, not the image.

    You can also place it inside a powerclip if you're planning to work with it in Draw instead of Paint. Just remember to create an object to place it in - this is super easy if you use the auto trace feature.

    Remeber to make the outline of the container transparent. The auto trace feature is also super useful when it comes to die cutting.
