Tools You Can Be Leaf In

Written by Jeff Harrison

One user asked about leaves in CorelDRAW.

She wanted to use the PostScript Leaf fill, but find a way to fill those leaves with custom colors. While there are tedious ways to do it, IMO the fill itself isn’t that great. One of the skills I have is to look further than the initial question to figure out the final goal.
The project was a poster for Earth Day for her business. For a quick poster, spending hours fooling around with PostScript fills is not the best way to go IMO. At the end of the day, the result won’t look that great no matter how hard you try, due to the primitive nature of that fill.

Instead, I whipped up the following in less than 5 minutes. The image sprayer tool in PHOTO-PAINT is perfect for these kinds of things.
