Inflating bitmaps

You can inflate bitmaps automatically or manually. When you inflate bitmaps automatically, CorelDRAW adds a default border to the bitmap. You can set your own border size when you inflate a bitmap manually.

To enable the auto inflate bitmap option

1 Select the bitmap with the Pick tool.

2 Click Bitmaps, Inflate Bitmap, Auto Inflate Bitmap.

A check mark appears next to the Auto Inflate Bitmap indicating that the option is enabled. Repeat step 2 to disable the Auto Inflate Bitmap option.

To inflate a bitmap manually

1 Select the bitmap with the Pick tool.

2 Click Bitmaps, Inflate Bitmap, Manually Inflate Bitmap.

3 Type a number representing the pixel amount to inflate in the Width and Height boxes or a percentage amount to inflate the bitmap in the Percentage boxes. Use the original bitmap size as reference.

Enable the Maintain Aspect Ratio check box to inflate the bitmap proportionally.
