Question about Corel Draw 8

Image quality in MS Word

Hi there - I am creating diagrams in Corel Draw, exporting to JPEG (I have tried other file types too) and importing (import picture - from file) into a large MS word document (thesis). The trouble is that the images have small text and the resolution in MS Word seems to be worse than the JPEG outside of Word. Am I imagining things, and what can I do?

    I have drawings, not photos, and have sized them correctly for the word doc, and saved at 300 dpi, but to no avail. When I print the drawing from Corel the resolution is great, but when printing from Word, its shocking - I am still trying everything I can think of - thanks for the help - any more suggestions?

JPEG is a raster image. Every pixel is identified to the computer.
MS Word is resizing the picture to make it fit. When it does this it causes pixels to disappear. This is why you will get blocky images and or unreadable text.

The Solution is

Re size the image and bump the dpi to at least 300. This will add enough pixels to where you won't notice the stair step.

The professional way to do it is with Vector images. This is difficult to do if you are using a photograph. You will need to plot the image out (basically re draw it with lines and bucket fills)


Hope this helps you.

Why is font Corel Draw has changed?


If I understand you correctly everything is being imported correctly except for the "degree C", and what you are saying is when that is imported into word the"degree C" is converted into the little man (or weird character) correct??
I have two thoughts on this.
First, instead of exporting everything from Corel Draw can you not save that entire data set (What you have in the .Jpg) as an image, and then open Word and insert image from file?? If it is correct in Corel Draw and you can save it as an Image then when it is inserted into Word it will look correct, because Word can't change images (The text of them so to speak).
Second, I presume that whatever data you are wanting to put this key with is in Word already. If this is the case can you not place the key where you want it and then place the cursor beside 30 and do the following....Hold down Alt and press 0176...(Make sure you use the 0176 on the Keypad not the KEYBOARD). Yes, there is a difference...release the Alt key and press space. You will now have your degree symbol and will only need to hit "C" to make 30 degrees Celsius. Repeat for 15. There are a large number of things that could be a factor, but here are a few...I presume that the thousands of machines you speak of all have the same OS and are all on the same SP (This includes the SP for both Word and Corel) correct?? Next you may want to try doing a repair on Office and see if the issue is resolved, and if not do a repair on Corel. Or try repair file via CorelDraw Recovery Toolbox. Hope this helps.

Corel draw 8 is not save as pdf?


It's been so long since I've udes CD8 but I would say it won't support exporting pdf. If I don't remember wrong I exported file as postscript file (*.ps) and then used Adobe Distiller to create pdf-files. But there might have been a trick or a two to notice for correct output :)

Save GIMP image as jpg


Press CTRL+E, type in the file name you want and add the '.jpg' or '.jpeg' extension to the end, deleting any other file extensions. Then navigate to where you want to save it and hit Export. From there, its just an issue of importing the .jpg image from wherever you saved it, into Publisher.

1.) Did you paste the fonts into a text box in Corel? Sometimes this works better than importing.
2.) try to copy all of the text from Word and then paste into a text box in Corel
3.)Make sure you answer yes to the "maintain fonts and formatting" question when pasting text into text box in Corel
4.) After pasting text, Save the Corel file!

How do I paste a photograph into a painting? Every time I copy and paste it only copies a blank image.


Hi there,
Try this. Load the photo into MS Paint and use the select tool to select the part of the image you want to copy. Once you've done that, open up Corel and paste it in there.

It may also be that the photo you are trying to import is not a JPEG, so Corel might not be recognizing it.

Export the page as a jpeg, 150 dpi, high quality, then delete all the items on that page in the indesign document (text & images), then import the jpeg to that page it will fit exactly.
This works most times!
