Macro in Corel 11: Photopaint

Macro in Corel 11: Photopaint

Hello. I am a new Corel PhotoPaint user after having used Adobe Photoshop for a long time.  I know that in Photoshop I was able to set up a macro in the "Actions" palette that would allow me to execute several actions with a single command (i.e. convert to grayscale, despeckle filter, soften filter, auto contrast)

Is there a way to create this type of macro in Corel?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Macro in Corel 11: Photopaint

You can create your own "macros" with the script recorder... or you can program with VBA. I'm not knowlegeable w/VBA, but with the script recorder, just open up the Recorder Docker, hit the "record" button, and then do the "actions you want to record. When you're finished stop the recording. NOTE: you need to edit the script when finished. Open the script up in Notepad and you'll see the first "action" describes the file size - something like: .SetFileSize 300,300 - delete this line otherwise it will resize your image to this setting.

The script will look something like this:

WITHOBJECT "CorelPhotoPaint.Automation.11"
    .SetDocumentInfo 450, 200
    .BitmapEffect "Gaussian Blur", "GaussianBlurEffect.V11 GaussianBlurRadius=190,GaussianBlurResampled=0"
