You're just a great all around big helper ain't ya?

Thanks for uploading these. While I'm very familiar with the stuff you discuss it should definitely be of big help to the beginners.

Do you have plans to move into more advanced tutorials any time soon?

PS: I hope they let me know something on that pig artwork so we can get it finished

I know this is ridiculously basic, but a major problem I'm having is how to make areas that would normally have color - like the inside of that football you did - be transparent so the color of the t-shirt will show through. I don't know whether I'm trying to use files that are locked or not using the right files or what...but for some reason, this is all but impossible for me! I use CorelDraw 5. Any tips would be very, very welcome!

Thanks!

No question is dumb except for the one that is not asked. There's 2 ways you can approach this:

1.) You can ungroup the vector object and then click 1st on the piece you want to be cutout (clear/seethrough) and then shift-click on the object it is sitting on top of. Once you have these 2 objects selected in this order (the one you click 1st and the one you click second is important) then you should see small button choices in the grey area near the top middle of your screen (they look like overlapping squares of different kinds) and just click once on the "Trim" button. After this, then you can deselect everything and click on the original piece you wanted cut out and delete it. If you did everything right, the area underneath will now be a cutout area where the shirt will show through.

2.) The easier option is to use a Pantone color applied to a rectangle/square behind your design, to serves as the shirt color base, and then apply that same Pantone color to all the pieces that you want the shirt to "show through". This will give the appearance that you want and then when you go to print your seps, just make sure to uncheck that "shirt color" Pantone, since you of course don't need a printout or screen for that.

Hope this helps! Let me know if you need further clarification.

Do you happen to know if there's the equivalent of the magic eraser in Corel Draw? Something that you can just click on and it will remove all background color within the surrounding line segments? I thought I'd seen a video on this before, but can't find it now!

Thanks!

Do you mean turning off your object's fill? If so, then there's a "x" box at the very front of every palette that will do that for you. If that's not what you meant, can you explain further?

I guess so - Does that mean wherever you remove the fill, it will be transparent? (ie you'll see the shirt color under it) If the image doesn't allow you to turn off the fill or to ungroup it, I'm guessing it's an image that is only usable in its original version - no changes?

What I'm looking for is a darn football that is just an outline - so the shirt shows through. The football would be outlined in black, with details like laces, etc in black.

Cannot seem to find one anywhere to buy - and all the 'free' vector images I've downloaded I can't change.

Help!

Default Re: Free CorelDraw video tutorials! Just finished them!

Thanks for clarifying. Unfortunately, your question doesn't have a 1 sided answer.
-For some clipart/vector art, yes, when you turn off the fill, then it will be transparent underneath. For most though, if you turn off the fill of a piece of the artwork, then you see the fill of the piece that's sitting underneath of it, rather than the shirt color.
-To remedy this, you can learn how to trim objects from eachother, and then be able to have the shirt color show through. The easier solution is to simply use the same fill color from your background/shirt color square that is behind your object. To explain, if I have an image that I want to print black and red on a blue shirt, I would color it with black and red pantones and then place a blue pantone square behind my image (as a shirt color sample basically) and then use that same blue pantone on any areas of the art that I want to "show through". Then when I go to print the seps, I would simply print the red and black seps, but uncheck (not print) the blue one.
-The other issue it sounds like you are having (where you can't ungroup or color art you open) is probably because either the "clipart" you downloaded is not vector and you are trying to edit a bitmap (raster image) or that you are importing the eps incorrectly so CorelDraw is converting it to a bitmap. (this can be remedied by changing your import rollout tab options to PS, PRN, EPS- Postscript Interpretted).
Hope this helps! Good luck!
Thanks,
James
