Playing With Pictures... Corel Software

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, May 26, 1999

Whether you're just starting to play with pictures on your computer, or you're an old pro, Corel makes it fun and easy. I'm Fred Fishkin with Bootcamp, a report on computers and technology. Everybody likes pictures and if you have a PC and you haven't played with digital photography, you don't know what you're missing. The Corel Corporation has a great line up of programs ranging from the new CorelDRAW Suite 9 at the high end, to the consumer priced Corel PrintHouse Magic packages. If you haven't seen it before, it really is magic. Corel's Brenda Jackson...

"I think one of the coolest new features is the custom warp effect where you're able to take an image, and it could be a face as well, and you can pinch and punch all sorts of areas and warp those areas and customize it. So that's a lot of fun. There's also something we call wrappers...it's a very, very strong kind of cut out tool, where you're able to take a lot of images and put a wrapper shape around it."

Powerful, sophisticated tools made easy. Not to mention fun. Digital cameras are great but you don't need one. You can have film developed onto disk or buy an inexpensive scanner. The premium edition of PrintHouse Magic sells for under forty dollars and includes a family and friends calendar and contact program too...

"And what it allows you to do is if you have an anniversary coming up, a birthday coming up, or even a meeting, you can go and put that in and allow yourself to be reminded."
