Can anybody tell me how I can create a silver or metallic effect in CorelDraw X3?
This is worth a look, check out the entire page of examples.
Thanks Jeff. I did see your site but unfortunately I don't have a creditcard.
in Draw, basically you fill with a banded fountain fill. But depending on exactly the effect you are looking for, you can do so much more; light effects, bevels, punched metal, brushed metal, rivits, screws, ...
Liquid metal effects and chrome are easier in PPaint - you get the outline to the shape, make a drop shadow and highlight border then blend/blur them and use a wibbly tone curve on them. And you can get really creative with rust, pitting, melting, ting's ...
Depends on what exactly you want to acheive how you would go about it.
You could hand a friend with a card 10$ and they buy it for you... :-)
not that I'm objecting to giving Jeff $10 , but I always find it more entertaining and rewarding to DIY
... In saying that, it depends on the output - the plugin is probably worth more than the $10 to teach yourself how to do it manually (...but then again, once you know how it works and you have the plugin, why bother doing manually again?)
It actually beggs the question - if there is a plugin to do something(anything), why should you learn how?
