You can create and add custom pattern fills in CorelDRAW out of vector art or bitmaps. The process is very simple once you learn a few rules. This tutorial helps understand the basics of creating custom full-color and bitmap pattern fills. You can apply a pattern to an object with CorelDRAW Pattern Fill tool (in the toolbox menu on the left) or through the fill tab in CorelDARW Object Properties docker (Alt + Enter). Either way, the Pattern fill dialog should look like this. You are able to change the pattern’s size, rotation, offset and some other values depending on your preference. Full color patterns are created in the same way as the two color ones. There are two main differences in the creating process – the colors and the pattern file. When creating Full color patterns, you can use any and as many colors as you like. Since full color patterns don’t allow you to change their original colors when applying them to an object, like two color patterns do, the colors are saved with the pattern file. After you’ve selected the pattern area with the marquee and you’ve confirmed the pattern creation, you will be asked to save the pattern as a separate file in the CorelDRAW Patterns folder. Draw your pattern using any colors you wish but, keep in mind that if the art goes all the way to the edge, make sure you draw or crop the art in a way that it is continuous on all sides to ensure a seamless pattern after it is applied. This goes for the shape itself as well as the colors. / Go to Tools/Create/Pattern Fill from the top menu to open the Create Pattern pop-up window. Select the Full Color pattern type and click OK. The cursor is changed to a marquee, drag to select the entire pattern area and input the pattern file name. Test the new full-color pattern by assigning it to a shape. It should be automatically added in CorelDARW full color patterns library after you’ve saved it. These patterns come in handy when you want to use some raster image as a pattern fill. The difference between a full-color and a bitmap pattern is that the vector-based pattern tiles in the full-color pattern can be re-sized (enlarged) without quality loss. Bitmap patterns, however, act as any other bitmap and resizing the pattern is pretty much the same as resizing any raster image (loss of quality). / Open CorelDRAW Pattern fill dialog by clicking on the pattern fill tool from CorelDRAW toolbox menu on the left, choose Bitmap as the pattern type and click on Load. The bitmap image is added to your Bitmap patterns library just like with the full color example. Test it by applying the pattern to an object. The custom patterns you used in CorelDRAW are retained in the file after you’ve saved it. This means that you can use any custom patterns (two-color, full-color or bitmap) in your web-to-print templates. Read more about custom web-to-print patterns. Source.
