I'm a seat-of-the-pants user of Corel Draw. I have images and text that I want to put over a coloured background. The text is OK. The images have a 'white' background and it's apparent over the colour. I have tried a bitmap trace to remove the 'white' background but it degrades the quality of the image. I knew how to do it once - lost in the mists of time. Hopefully someone could remind me of the process. This is what I have now ... I want the background colour to replace the 'white' on the images.
You could select the image, and then use the Transparency tool, selecting a suitable "merge mode" for the transparency.
For that image, you could try leaving it at 0% transparency, with "If Darker" for the merge mode.
Thank you Eskimo. I tried that but ... I can't find merge mode, if darker etc. That wasn't what I did originally, I thought it may have been something to do with a bitmap? Have tried converting to bitmap and doing a background colour change. That didn't work. Will keep hunting.
The closest version to X6 that I have is X7. This is what it looks like there when I do what I was trying to describe:
Hello Eskimo. That worked! My display was different to yours. I just couldn't see what you were describing. Rather than your buttons to select 'uniform' had a dropdown box - then ' merge mode', 'if darker', then had a sliding scale to toggle back on a sliding scale to get 'starting transparency' back to zero. Thank you.
