Shelby’s Bitmap Perspective Released

Written by Jeff Harrison
February 18, 2014
This macro forces a bitmap into a 4-node shape of your choice. Before
now, it has been practically impossible to accomplish this inside either
CorelDraw or Photo-PAINT. Both Photo-PAINT and CorelDRAW have had bitmap perspective filters/effects for many years. The problem: they’re impossible to control for precise results. Here’s a test result… I made some extruded boxes inside CorelDRAW and then forced bitmaps into the sides of the boxes. You can see that there is more than simple skewing going on.
It’s compatible with CorelDraw X4 or higher. Note that Photo-Paint must also
be installed. macro comes with a video showing how to set it up
and use it.
More info is here. Who uses such a tool like this? Real working designers like Ross B. who need real solutions:
