Question about PC Desktops

In Corel Paint Shop Pro X I'll take a great deal of time with an enlarged image deleting extraneous pixels one at a time and end up with a sharp image -- when I return to the image at a later date, I find that all the extraneous pixels are back and the image is softened and no longer as sharp as I had created - I'm not sure which of the following settings might affect the image but they're all set at 100: Hardness, Density, Thickness, and Opacity -- thanks for your help -- Mason Lewis

Your mistake is saving the image.

Just use export command and export the image on JPG format , and chose the folder where to save onto your PC.

Do not work on Corel straight on camera memory card.

Hi Mason -

100 is the default setting for each of the parameters you've listed. If you change them, save the file, and close and reopen it later, they'll all be set at 100 again (corresponding to your most recent saved settings).

If you edit the pixels by placing new color over the pixels in question, then it's possible that your adjustments are still there; they've merely been hidden behind the original image. Try selecting the original image and clicking Edit > Arrange > Send to Back. That way any individual pixels you've added in a different layer will show up in front of the original image.

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind regards,
H2H

Check whether in any case of settings the default value given as 100 or not. if it s given then u need to erase those default values. only then the image remains with the constant changes in settings..

Hi,
The jagged edge ("aliased") factor is because the images created in CorelDraw are vector based, expressed mathematically on the screen and will always look sharp and crisp if you zoom to it's limit, and they're being exported to a bitmap format which is expressed in pixels which look more jagged the more you zoom in or more you enlarge them.
 To minimize this effect, make sure that the images are the exact size that you're going to use them at: if the image on your website is for example intended to be 3" x 2", make sure the image in Draw is that exact size, and export the image at 100% @ 72 DPI resolution and don't try to resize them on the web page. There's no need to import into Paint unless you want to change the color or otherwise edit the art once it's been exported to a bitmap.

Good luck,
Thanks

    Taking
    a perfect picture every time is impossible, and inevitably some
    pictures are going to come out wrong, such as having a color cast from
    an incorrect white balance. But you don't have to set those images
    aside as unusable. Using Paint Shop Pro, you can remove a color cast
    easily and preserve the picture the way it was meant to look. This is
    also useful for restoring photos which have become yellowed with age to
    their original colors.

    Open Paint Shop Pro, then open any image
    (that you own, have permission to use, or is in the public domain) that
    has a color cast you want to remove. You may want to save a copy of the
    image and then close the original to avoid saving inadvertent changes
    to the first image.

    The quick and easy fix for a color cast photo
    is to use Automatic Color Balance. Click on Adjust, and then click on
    Automatic Color Balance. In this menu you will find different options
    for correcting the color in your image. Place a check in the Remove
    color cast box, and adjust the Strength to achieve your desired result.
    Notice the Illuminant temperature at the bottom of the menu, and move
    the slider left or right depending on the lighting conditions when the
    picture was taken. If you don't remember, just make adjustments toward
    warmer or cooler until you are satisfied with the resulting image in
    the preview and then click OK.

    You can leave the altered picture
    as is and save it, or use the Manual Color Correction option to adjust
    the color balance further. Click on Adjust, go to Color Balance, and
    then click on Manual Color Correction. In this menu you can choose
    Preset target color and then select options such as hair colors, skin
    tones, grasses, or metals. Alternately, you can choose Manual target
    color and then adjust the Hue, Saturation, and Lightness to your
    satisfaction. When you are finished, click OK.

    Save your corrected image with a different name from the original if you did not save a copy at the beginning, and you're done.

Hi,
It maybe the format you save the picture in, try to save the picture as a bmp that way all the pixels will always be the same and they wont get changed in compression, since there is none.
So give .BMP a shot

Tip

Simple way to Get Better Quality Scans


This tip describes and explains a common standard technique to correct and improve the contrast of the image, which enhances colors too. It is applicable to scanning both prints and film, and to editing later too. It uses the histogram tool in your scanner's driver or photo editor program, and is called Setting the Black and White Points. This discussion may appear to be about scanning, but this same technique works for scanner images, digital camera images, any image at all. The LCD display on better digital cameras shows this same histogram to allow judging the correct camera exposure at time of shooting, so now is time to learn this technique.

This is easy to do and learn, and it can make a huge difference to your images. It is an essential technique for Color or Grayscale photo images, a real fundamental. It is simply the way images are adjusted. It is quick to do, and it should become your automatic procedure.

You can do this during the scan, or after the scan in the photo editor. The scanner software is very important to our results, it is the tool we have to work with. You really don't need much skill to operate a printer or a monitor, but scanners do require extra effort. The technique described here used with good scanning software will raise your scanning skill level very considerably.

This article is illustrated using images of the histogram tool from Microtek ScanWizard, but if your scanner allows control of the tones during the scan, and many scanners do, then it has similar tools, and they will all work the same way.

Most popular photo editor programs today have similar histogram tools, for example Adobe Photoshop or Elements (shown below - at the Levels menu or just type Control L), and Corel Photo-Paint, Ulead PhotoImpact, and Corel Paint Shop Pro. These all work the same as described here. This tool is often named "Levels", referring to adjusting the black and white end point levels. The adjustment below lowered the midpoint, to brighten the image.
cc781ff.jpg
5d388c4.gif

The first step is to start with a pretty good photograph, reasonably focused and exposed. Then the rest is easy. You can even make poor photos better, sometimes a lot better.

The image below is our final version. It's only a 256 color GIF file now, okay? GIF is not best for photos, but the transparent background requires it. And I like it, and it's a good example for the technique. There are a few steps involved in this Simple Way, and it's much harder to describe than to do, but I'll try to cover it all. This method works great for Color or Gray scanning modes, and if you edit images, I can't imagine you not finding it extremely useful too. This tool is fundamentally important to all imaging.


5e234e4.gif

Below is the initial scan, with less contrast.

57f3579.jpg

Photos do vary, one from another, and often do have different scanning requirements. Here is an easy nearly semi-automated technique that helps quite a lot (honest). And for the unusual photo, too dark, too light, etc, variations of this same method will work wonders. There are many opinions how to best do this, but this one works.

This article is illustrated using screen images from Microtek's ScanWizard, but if your scanner allows control of the tones during the scan, and it probably does, then it surely has very similar tools that work the same way. And good photo editors also have the same tool.
Thanks! =)

CD drive doesnt recognize a dvd


Sorry to say, but a CD drive cannot read DVD's. You need a DVD reader. Thus, the CD drive will not recognize DVD media and tell you no valid disc is in the drive. I recommend buying a DVD RW (reader/writer), as they are inexpensive and enable you to burn DVDs as well as read them.

Hi!

Unfortunately, the only sure-fire solution I know of is to reinstall the OS from scratch (best way is to reformat the hard drive) then reinstall the Paint Shop application. More and more OEM software is made to be very finicky as to when and where it will install. The SW companies make much less on OEM SW vs. full versions, so they really want to make sure that it is a new computer that the SW is being installed on, in compliance with the license.

I know this is probably not what you wanted to hear, but I hope it was helpful. Please let me know if this helps solve your problem.

I have downloaded corel paint shop pro x2 but when I click on the icon nothing happens. I know I have loaded it because it is in my programs list and does occaisonally work. what is going on


Probably an error that occured during installation. What you need to do is uninstall it, reboot the computer, then install a fresh copy.

The installer you've downloaded may also have been slightly corrupted, that's why its didn't install properly in the first place.

If problem still persists, then I suggest you download the entire installer again.

Let me know how it goes

I used to have no problem with altering images and then 'saving copy as'. But for some time now, any picture altered and saved and then opened up again has degraded - become pixelated. Doesn't matter if...


Jane...
As scanss says, the answer can only be as accurate as the question.

Broadly speaking though, when you save or "save copy", you are saving in a particular format, with particular format options.

Generally, you'd use JPEG... and with JPEG you can compress an image from almost no change right down to a very small file-size that will look absolutely horrid. This is true for most popular formats, so check any settings or options out when you are saving the file.

Also check your colour depth. 16bpp or 32bpp are standard and look fine, but if you are saving your high-quality images as GIF Files, they might be 8-bit colour and look nasty.
