You can add images to a file with Place Image and Link Image, commands available on the toolbar.
You can also find them in the File menu. Click and .
Using Place Image, you can import an image and insert it on the canvas. A copy of this image will be included as a part of the project, which can result in a larger file size.
Link Image places an instance of the image with a link to the original one. The instance is subordinate to the source and reflects all changes to the master file.
There are benefits to this method:
- Smaller file size, because an image is not included as part of the document.
- Live link to the image source, making it responsive to the changes outside Corel Vector. For example, if you decide to modify the source in Paint Shop Pro, all changes would be reflected in your .gvdesign file.
The linked image is displayed only when the source file is available, so you must include the source when sharing the file.
Inserting by using clipboard
You can also paste an image from your clipboard with Paste (+ ), Paste in place ( + + ), Paste Inside Selection ( + + + ) or Paste here (Context menu).
Use the Open File (+ ) to open the image in the new document.
