Macro Monday: Dizzy: RasterControl

November 24, 2008

One of the great features about the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite is that bitmaps in CorelDRAW are linked to Corel PHOTO-PAINT. Simply select the bitmap in CorelDRAW, click Edit Bitmap and the file is sent to Corel PHOTO-PAINT for editing. This works great for those of us who work with Corel PHOTO-PAINT exclusively. But what about those who are using Adobe Photoshop? Until now, you’ve just been out of luck if you wanted this easy round-trip editing.

With the release of Dizzy: RasterControl, you can link bitmaps in CorelDRAW to Adobe Photoshop for round-trip editing. There are a number of other features in the package as well. In the short term those other features are unsupported and undocumented. That should change in the near future. Check it out as this little macro has a lot to offer.
