Chapter 2. Start-up and File Handling > Importing Graphics and Text

Importing Graphics and Text

You can import many types of files (such as CorelDraw clip art, text, graphics, and so on) into a drawing. While the Open command can open most draw-type files, you must use Import to open a text file or any other type of graphic (such as a scan or photo).

To import a file into a drawing:

1.
Choose File > Import or press .

The Import dialog box appears (Figure 2.8).

Figure 2.8. Select an image or text file to import.


2.
Navigate to the folder where the file you want to import is stored and select the file.

To see a preview of the image, check the Preview checkbox. Additional information about the file is displayed beneath the text boxes.

3.
From the pop-up list on the right, indicate whether you want to import the entire file (Full Image), a selected part of the image (Crop), or the image at a different size or resolution (Resample).

If you chose Crop or Resample, another dialog box appears (Figure 2.9). Make the desired changes and click OK.

Figure 2.9. You can crop an image (left) by dragging handles or entering specific location and size figures. You can also resize or change an imported image's resolution (right).


4.
Review and set options in the bottom-right area of the dialog box. (The listed options vary with the type of file you've selected.)

5.
Click the Open button.

The file is imported into your document as a new graphic or text object.
