I have found several Photoshop Tutorial on how to turn a photo into a coloring page which I would like to do but I can't find any tutors for corel photopaint or draw.
Does anyone know of a tutor to change a photo to a coloring page in corel?
In reply to Hunter:
I think it means a recreated image taking the photo and forming a black-line traceover so that the image can then be re-colored at a later time.
I tried doing it with a photo I had and other than redrawing the outlines, I have no idea.
Are you able to suppy a link to that tutorial?
If you take a picture of an animal at the zoo then want to turn it into a color page for a kid to color with crayons or markers. A coloring book page.

Like this: ( I only picked these from the first I found on google)
I have tried but I can't get the step right in photo paint.
In reply to Kimberly:
Different images are going to take different techniques, but you can start with this...
Working on a duplicate of your image:
1. Do something to make the edges of your image REALLY stand out. For example, Try over-sharpening the image first, and then use one of the effects under Effects>Contour.
2. Now go to Image>Convert to Black and White. Choose Line Art for the Conversion Method. Play with the threshold slider to get the detail you want.
In reply to pranderson:
Thanks, I have been playing with this idea off and on for years but it never trying over-sharpening the image before using the contour.
I will give that a try.Kimberly
Kimberly, you can use Photoshop tutorials with PhotoPaint. I think that Foster has a tutor or so about Photoshop and PhotoPaint equivalents commands and options.
In reply to Michael Cervantes:
I have tried that and it now going well. I think only some photo change over well. I am getting better results by using the corel trace.
Thanks for the suggestion
In reply to FosterCoburn:
The result may be too detailed, but you can try it anyway.
Use draw not paint, import the photo, right click on it and select "Outline Trace > Clipart".
Select the resulting trace group, apply white fill and black outline.
If the original photo had a lot of texture, you may need to experiment with the parameters, and/or simplify the result by ungrouping and deleting surplus shapes.
In reply to harryLondon:
I have spend hours upon hours playing with draw's trace and nothing really works. It can be done with some picture but it is very hit and miss plus no two picture can be done the same.
Can you please post a couple of examples of the photos your are trying to change into coloring pages? Perhaps we can give you more specific help if we can see what the originals look like.
