Hi guys - I'm trying to add perspective to photos (JPEG files) imported into CorelDraw.

I have attached something which I hope will help best describe what I am looking to do.  I want to change a photo so that, rather than facing 'head on', it looks as though it is facing away at an angle.

I can skew basic shapes to give the impression these have perspective but I can not do this with JPEG files.  If anyone can help me to acheive this in CorelDraw or CorelPhoto that would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Do all this on a copy of the photo... not the original.

Use the Perspective tool after selecting the bitmap on the CorelDRAW page.

Go to Bitmaps-3D effects-choose lower right node and pull down appropriately.

The best answer is Shelby's awesometaculay Bitmap Perspective macro which does exactly what you want without the clunky limitations using Draw's bitmap perspective tool or guessing with Photopaint's tool.  Contact Shelby M or Jeff at macromonster.com

If you want more control edit it in Photo Paint as an object. Click until you get double arrow nodes, and move them to test.
