Default Corel Photo Paint Help

I have this jpeg image I need to clean up. It has very fine detail that will be printed white on black. In this image I've attached you'll see these blueprint "bushes". I need to thicken the outline of the white section of these bushes. Is there an easy way to do this in photo paint?

If this was a vector I would just smart fill those areas, get rid of the fill and leave an outline that I could adjust thicker. Is there a way of doing this similarly in photo paint, any ideas?

Thanks guys

In PhotoPaint, use the "color mask" or "magic wand" to mask the non-white areas. Then use "mask outline" "expand" to add a specific number of pixels around the image. Then you can fill the new area white and remove the mask.

Thanks Neil, but that won't work with this image, the outlines of these bushes have holes, won't mask. Unless I do it all manually, which will be too much to attempt.

I'm not seeing the holes, but maybe it's because the one I'm looking at is low res. Another technique I sometimes use for making a raster image bolder is to use a combination of blurs and the tone curve to get (at least close) to the effect I want. Depending on what it's for, I might also do some manual cleanup with a tablet.

It's probably possible to extract just the black from the image by looking at just the red channel. Copy that channel and use a filter like Minimize on it. This works better if it's not low resolution. The higher the resolution, the finer the increments of thickening. If it's 72ppi, then it makes a bigger jump.

You could also try using the black and white filter which will easily isolate the black from the grays. Make a copy of the art on a new layer and do that. Then you have the black isolated. Then do minimize.
