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.
