Creating a Distressed Look

Creating a Distressed Look

By Roger Wambolt

Want to add a funky, distressed look to your text? This tutorial will show you how easy it is with CorelDRAW. You’ll see how to import a bitmap image with a distressed texture you want to use, how to adjust the bitmap mode and tone curve of your texture and how to convert this to a 1 bit black and white image. Then it’s simply a matter of removing the fill and changing the color to blend the distressed texture into the background, so it can only be seen on the text.

Thanks for watching! We hope you found this tutorial helpful and we would love to hear your feedback in the Comments section below. And don’t forget to visit our social media pages and show us what you’ve learned by sharing your photos, videos and creative projects with us.
