This is a simple trick achieved with the help of CorelDRAW Envelope tool. Use this technique to simulate a realistic text perspective on a corner of a wall in your web-to-print and dynamic imaging templates.
Before you start
- Import the background image (photo of a corner wall) in your CorelDRAW template document;
- Input the dummy text and turn it into variable web-to-print field.
In a nutshell, we’re going to use CorelDRAW Envelope tool to shape the dummy text frame simulating the wall’s perspective.
Select the dummy text frame, set its horizontal alignment and activate CorelDRAW’s Envelope tool from the toolbox menu on the left.
Note. Having a brick wall as a background image will make your life a lot easier since you can use the edges of the bricks as perspective reference.
Note. You can achieve best corner perspectives using squared fonts rather than rounded ones with this technique.
Lets make the text blend in with the background a bit better. Select the dummy text frame, activate CorelDRAW Transparency Tool and assign a 50% uniform transparency to it with the Saturation transparency operation.
Our web-to-print software can handle this effect easily! Upload the template into your catalog and test it.
