Product Description

From Amazon

This techniques book shows beginning and intermediate users how to use CorelDRAW 7 and 8 and the companion product, Corel Photo-Paint, to produce sophisticated artwork. Although the final images are far from simple, the book makes them accessible with its large full-color screen shots and clear instructions. You first learn illustration techniques, while creating artwork such as a glass of wine in CorelDRAW or a logo in Corel Photo-Paint. Next the book teaches design techniques, showing you how to build a brochure with original type treatment in CorelDRAW, and create special text effects and simulate the appearance of stained glass, gold, and chrome in Corel Photo-Paint. Finally, you learn techniques that work in both CorelDRAW and Corel Photo-Paint. You create cutout shapes, shadows, and embossed images in both packages. Overall, this book's straightforward guidance will help you move beyond dabbling in CorelDRAW to using the software for producing real artwork. --Kathleen Caster

Studio Techniques by Gary Priester has been the most inspirational corel draw book I have (and I have read many). His ability to teach many skills and techniques in just one of his tutorials is absolutely amazing....His ability to use colors and create truely "gem like" creations with them has left me with my mouth open more than once! All of this means nothing to me if the person with these abilities lacks teaching skills...and this is where Gary shines above most others.... When you combine "Creative Genious" with truely great teaching and writing skills you have "Studio Techniques.." by Gary Priester!!

I was looking for a book, not a manual, to show me some of the special effects everyone wants to learn, not just how to use the tools. I have learned so much from this book and have even impressed a few of my friends. The steps to create the projects are clear and easy to follow. The perfect book for any Corel user.

If you REALLY want to learn how to use the CorelDraw8 suite, this is the one book you MUST have! Gary and Dave have shown how to create complex projects in simple, clear steps that anyone should be able to complete with good results. I have several books on this program and although they are good reference sources, they don't even come close for actually getting in there and showing you how to get your job done. If you follow along with Gary and Dave you'll get results that look like they must have taken weeks instead of minutes to complete. Don't tell your boss! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars A 'must-have' for Corel Draw & Paint users... Oct. 24 1998
Format:Paperback
I bought this book when it first hit the shelves and I've got to say, it's one that I've opened again and again for ideas and inspiration. Gary and Dave are wonderful teachers, talented artists, and humorous writers. I'm so glad they combined their considerable Corelian knowledge to write such a great book!

5.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for! Oct. 20 1998

Just what I was looking for - or so I thought! I was desperate to learn more about metallic effects and how to get the best out of Corel Xara 2. Once I'd discovered how to transpose commands between Corel Draw 8 and Corel Xara then this excellent book really came into full use. An interesting side effect was that it also persuaded me to buy Corel Draw 8! But the book? Quite simply, I reckon it's a sizzler, giving away lots of secrets to us dabblers. Despite its price hike to cross the Atlantic - it cost me 35 pounds here in good old England - I can thoroughly recommend this book to you all.
