Corel Photo-Paint is a high-quality image enhancer and image manipulation
program. It is a companion application of CorelDraw X3 graphics suite, designed
specifically for image editing. It includes new Image Adjustment Lab that
enables you to evaluate different color tonal correction settings for enhancing
your photos.
In Photo-Paint there are four mask modes available for selection. ‘Normal’ mode
selects an area in an image, ‘Additive’ expands the editable regions by
selecting multiple areas, ‘Subtractive’ removes areas from a selection, and
‘XOR’ selects multiple areas.
Here we used Magic wand mask tool as the background color is uniform. When you
click anywhere on the image the tool takes the value of the first pixel and
expands the selected area to include all surrounding pixels of similar value.

Direct Hit!

Open a new file and choose a
desired background. Paste the image you want to mask and select Magic Wand
Tool. Set tolerance value as 5 and select anti-alias and Additive mode
Click on background and a red
overlay appears on the object and some parts of the background. For
deselecting unnecessary overlay on the background just click on the areas

For removing the unmasked area
go to Edit >Cut and now you can see the selected background. With this we
get the complete picture
For fine tuning, like removing
the blur as highlighted, go to Object >Defringe and set value of Defringe in
the range of 1–5. Your mask is now ready for use
