Adding the Appearance of Gold With CorelDRAW Gold Factory

June 26, 2012

Can you believe the 2012 Summer Olympics are just over a month away? Athletes from around the world will be there trying to get bronze, silver or gold. Today let’s look at a tutorial that will allow you to get the metal of your choice in your projects.

Last week I told you about the CorelDRAW Vector Metal tutorial that allowed you to create effects with just vector graphics. CorelDRAW Gold Factory will teach you to create even more stunning effects (like the graphic at right) by using bitmap effects using the built-in features of CorelDRAW and Corel PHOTO-PAINT. Once effects are created, it is easy to tint them to mimic the exact metal you want. Before long you can create your own gold medal!

      This is a blog post from 2012 about a tutorial that was even older. When we did a massive makeover of the site in December 2012 and older tutorials that hadn’t been updated were eliminated.
