Review:

Photo-Paint 8, the latest version of the Windows 95-based image-editing program from Corel Corp., offers many improvements, including the new Orbits and Symmetry features, enhanced masking tools, and the ability to import 3-D images, preview effects on screen, and edit low-resolution versions of your images. This official guide first takes you through the rudiments of using the package and understanding digital imaging. It then goes on to show you how to tackle intermediate and advanced tasks. You learn how to scan in and edit images; move images to and from CorelDRAW, the company's illustration package; change the size and orientation of your images; export files; and work with color palettes. Then you learn how to create, save, and manage masks; apply image-correction changes; use Photo-Paint's brushes and effects as well as the Clone and Image Sprayer tools; create fills and shapes; add text; and transform objects. Finally, you learn how to use the Blur, Noise, Sharpen, 2-D Effect, 3-D Effect, Render, Artistic, Fancy, and Color Transform filters, and how to use Photo-Paint to create images for the Web.
