Image Hose Tool
They are easy to use, easy to change and apply in 1000s and 1000s of ways. All the are sprayed or painted using the image hose tool.

The set includes many different types such as jewels, paint effects, rings, bursts, swirls, smudged, weird and more.
RIFF format / Loading
Key thing is to select the brush tool and select the image hose. All the resources are stored in native RIFF format (actually fairly early RIFF format but still support in P2015 etc).
display nozzle libraries panel
right side menu
Simply select a RIFF file from any folder
Apply the RIFF via the image hose brush tool
The artwork is not added to the display for the library, that is only done via the additional command of add to library and you will see the thumbnail appear in the library. You can then select the thumbnail to load the RIFF.
Auto clone effect
You can use the auto clone feature with the image hose. Select the brush tool, select image hose, select variant and go to the effects menu and esoterica and auto clone. Sometimes the auto clone is not available, it does seem that if that is the case, you can go to the window and auto painting and then the auto clone should then become available (hopefully). The auto clone fills the image with the current RIFF and is great for creating amazing random filled backgrounds with different sized and rotated etc designs. You can stop the auto clone by clicking the document and then perhaps apply an effect and then re-start the auto clone. Another option being using the auto clone on a layer and then repeat it on another layer and then combining all those filled layers
Use the capture command to create new brush dab. Use the capture brush feature and then apply a variety of different settings to create a new unique brush stroke
Apply them as a continuous stream of paint using the spacing setting which can be varied to create a flow of artworks as well as just a splatter with wide spaces etc across any image. Use paint designs as brush dab splatters, use the jitter feature to spread the applied brush stroke
Combine with effects
Combine RIFFs and effects. Apply a brush stroke and then apply effect such as blur. Apply more RIFF brush strokes and interleave the effects with the strokes and this in turn is a great way of adding unusual depth to artworks
Use them on layers and apply with different blending modes and effects and more. They can either be applied with a blending mode or used on a layer with a different blending mode from the normal
Superb colorful paint brush effects for the Image Hose. All are super colorful. By editing the source file, the RIFF file can be turned from a red brush stroke to a blue one or a rainbow colored one or desaturate the RIFF image (gray scale) or use visual effects such as blurs to the source RIFF and save as a new file. On re-loading, you will be asked to supply the required hose information which is normally the default 1 setting (none of the RIFFs on this site use more than the 1 cell option)
Use a brush stroke / floater and warp command to create wonderful distortions. Save the design using the drop and select (perhaps with some tweaking to improve the alpha channel) and save as a RIFF and reload the item
The paint tools and image hose can be used to fill text / type in second.
Grains and Tiles
They can be excellent sources for grains and tiles. Either use the single dab or apply multiple dabs (using the define as a tile feature) and create a new tile using the RIFF design. Save the tile in the tiles panel (or grains panel)
They can, via tiles, be used as an excellent clone source and a source for numerous effects such as glass distortions.
Looks / Hose are great combinations for superb hi-impact repeatable creative effects. Access via the looks panel
Use the straight brush option with the image hose to create quick and easy and hi-impact edges. To create a quick edge 1. Select brush tool 2. Select image hose / category 3. Select a RIFF from the toolbox 4. Select the straight option from the top bar (brush options) instead of just freehand mode 5. Click top left of image and then click the bottom left 6. Repeat all around document.
Use as a floater
Open the RIFF file and drag into the floater panel and use as a floater - they do not have to be used as a standard RIFF image hose file. You can then use that resource again and again in your projects via the floater panel.
How to adjust the color
Paint a few dabs of the current selected tool, adjust color, paint more and you can then create a multi-colored artwork in seconds
Open a RIFF, apply a grain or image luminance, save, and use the paper-tinged dab as a new brush strokes
How to create splatters and tubes of paint
Simply modify the spacing and all kinds of different results can be generated via the image hose. Use different spacing settings to create a tube of paint or a splatter spray
Use the capture dab and capture a design and use for charcoal or oil. Save the brush dab and save the brush variant, modify the XML code to create stunning new brushes
They can be used in Corel Photo-Paint and via TIFF in others
Add to library
To add them to a library 1. Open RIFF file 2. Go to brushes menu 3. Select nozzle menu 4. Add to library 5. Use the mover feature to move to other libraries. Please note that the items in this set are not stored in libraries so if you want to use them in the libraries, this will have to be a manual task or use some form of scripting
Create splatters and spray paint effects via scaling
Variant Image hoses
You can also create your own variant hose brushes to add to the brush panel.
Variants / expression
Hose variants also can be developed (even using a mouse instead of a pen) using information from expression panel.
Record brush strokes
You can also record brush strokes to create extreme brush strokes, use the playback feature for the brush to re-apply multiple 'similar' brush strokes. You can also use the pre-built brush strokes such as scribble or hatch or your own recorded brush strokes.
Apply them as sprays. Many of the settings for the image hose can spray multiple images in a single paint stroke.
Lower the opacity of the tool and apply to create a blurry brush stroke in seconds
Grains and how they affect the tool
Lower the grain setting in the general brush strokes panel to change the hose into a brush dab using the current foreground color. If the current foreground is blue, it will be a blue stamp. Sadly, the clone source option doesn't seem to work and the dab (after selecting a clone source and the clone option in the color panel) still displays in the original color
Superseding the auto clone tool, the auto painting panel is wonderful combined with items on this page. Select a RIFF file and then select the under painting panel and select a brush stroke such as 'medium dab' and set the randomness and size and then apply to create unusual textures / artworks etc
