Yes, covers again.
I spent hours with a hat. Did you know Photoshop has this great tool called Magic Wand? It will seek out the edge to an object if it's really obvious. So the hat was on a black background and since I spent about 6 hrs yesterday trying to figure out (unsuccessfully) how to make a background transparent, I knew I had to either cut away the black or repaint it. The automatic switch colors refused to work in any of the 3 programs, so finally there was a Magic Wand. "Arresto Momentum!" Yeah, the Magic Wand was full of tree lice and didn't work. Back to Corel Draw and do everything by hand, predictably, in a way that doesn't guarantee admittance to the local psych ward.
I spent hours trying to import Photoshop brushes into Corel. Only to find ink splats hidden in the list.
Quite a few years ago when Multimate became defunct, I got a new computer and Word was installed. For 6 months I struggled with it until I finally expressed my distress to my pal, Dona Meilach, a computer maven. She said Corel's Word Perfect was very elegant and well thought out. I used WP happily until circumstances forced me to switch to Open Office two years ago. Word Perfect still has an elegance Word can't conceive of and is beyond OO's ken. I will say the same for Corel's Draw Suite. It's well thought out, very user friendly to the point where if it detects you're struggling too long a hints box will pop up to help. And costs a third of Photoshop.
Here's the cover.
