PhotoImpact is now an old programme and will never be updated and eventually be completely unavailable. There is a more favourable software PSPX8 to create photographic effects. Try Photo and Adjust for commands to change colour/effect. Alternatively, find a photographic plugin and add it to PI.

8 months late but, just in case any one else is interested in how to get a vintage effect.

To get black and white click Ctrl + E or Photo > Color > Hue and Saturation and reduce Saturation to -100 for black and white. Click Okay.

Then click Ctrl + E again and click on the colourize radio button. Chose a Hue in the top slider of about -150 for sepia and reduce the saturation again to about -70 for a sepia toned monochromatic image.

There is probably a vignetting frame thing somewhere but I am not sure where. I use an elliptical mask with a soft edge for when I want to mimic visual fields. Lens vignetting as produced by vintage photography would have a circular vignette so...

Create a new image that is considerably larger than the image you want to vintagey-fy, Click on standard selection tool and choose a circular (for square) or elliptical (for rectangular photos) selection area from the horizontal tool bar (normally it is rectangular by default so you need to click on the rectangle), give the selection area a very soft edge of maybe 100, select a circle/ellipse in the centre of your image that is a little smaller than the centre of the image you want to vintage-fy. A blue dotted circle will appear in the centre of the white image. Right click on the area outside of this circle and chose "invert" so that you have selected a round/elliptical frame. Use the bucket tool to make this a black soft edged frame. Then copy and paste it onto the image you want to vintagey-fy. Select the frame and increase its transparency to about 12 so that the edges are not black but darker.

I used the method above on this family photo

Photo impact is not in the hotlist of Corel. I don't see if they have any further plan to push money on this product as they do not provide regular updates to PhotoImpact.
corel don't even provide better support for PhotoImpact users, CorelDraw is their main product.
Instead of wasting your time, you can choose from other available better programs.
here is a list of programs available free/paid to design the best cover picture. https://www.experthoot.com/how-to-creat ... your-blog/
If you still want to use PhotoImpact, You can directly contact customer support for a vintage effect and please do let us know, whatever the answer they reply.
Thanks.
