Working with images

Image manipulation

In Corel Vector, you can do basic image editing, mainly for colors and texture adjustments. You can use Adjust effects to do this.

Color adjustments

Color adjustments can be done with effects like Color Adjustment, Recolor, Overlay, Vibrance, and Bloom.


The Color Grading effect has presets that work like Instagram filters.


You can edit the image texture with effects like Sharpen and Noise.

Faded image

To create the effect of a fading image, use the Overlay effect with the Blend option toggled.

Toggle the Blend option, then click on the effect’s Color Picker to see the gradient handles. Adjust them to fit your design.

You can add one Overlay to each side of the image to make it fade from all sides.

Create a color palette from an image

To create a color palette from an image, just select the image and on the Inspector panel, under Appearance, click the Colors option.

A color palette based on the image is created.

Note: As of version 2021.i5, Fills can be applied to images (bitmaps) in the same way that they can be applied to vector objects.
