Corel Draw and Photo Paint - Experimenting To Learn How To Do Something

For the most part I am self taught using Corel Draw and Corel Photo Paint.
I do NOT usually set out to make something specific happen.

The serendipitous things that happen when I "play" with it are often another kind of "seed" to create something.

Today I was trying to make something specific happen as I wanted to show a group of fabrics in a circular format after I arrange and photograph them.

I played with a photo I had in my files.

I was able to crop a circle from the center of the design with much experimenting.
I am not quite sure how I did this so it will be another experiment next time I want to do it. The advantage is I know I CAN do it!

I used both Draw and Paint to make this happen.

Now I will have to create this effect after photographing the fabrics I want to do this with before I totally forget everything I discovered!

are you saying that youwere able to crop in acircular rather than rectangular fashion? that is interesting.
