USER REVIEWS

An essential must-have for every aspiring or professional graphic designer

CorelDraw Graphics Suite is one of the fastest illustrators existing on the market today and also one of the uncomplicated graphic design software to use. There are various learning resources like video tutorials available online to help first time users learn new tricks and tips. The suite is composed of a user-friendly environment, new upgraded powerful graphic design, photo-editing and website design features. It is compatible with 64-bit processor that will allow its users to process much larger files and images. The main programs that I find useful are the Corel Drax, a vector graphics software and photo editing tool, Corel Photo Paint. Other programs that can also be utilized are the drag-and-drop web design called Corel web designer and if you want a digital look, you can use Corel Connect. There are also several other add-ins available. What I fancy like about this program is the option to choose between the Standard CorelDraw Graphics Suite which is free and can obtain the latest uploads or the Premium which is paid to let you enjoy the full and latest software version, functions and upgrades. CorelDraw Graphics Suite is a great alternative for the expensive and overrated art design software offered in the market today.

Pros

  • Works faster and more efficiently
  • Compatible version with graphic tablets
  • Offers hundreds of professionally-designed templates
  • DVD and online versions for sale

Cons

  • For Windows operating system only
  • It is quite difficult for beginners
  • Minor processing and exporting issues

Immensely Powerful Graphic Design Features and a Very Good All Round Graphics Package

By Reinalei Jamir

On Tuesday, May 13, 2014

There are many features in CorelDraw that will take a newbie quite some time to get familiarized with. I do speculate if anyone can get a grip with all the programs this suite has to offer. However, this is a very potent tool and should do nearly everything in the graphics setting.

The software is manageable to install and appears very stable. This package is certainly a suite; a number of applications are installed, for vector graphics, photo editing, website design, etc. I do not see the interface quite intuitive, but that is what I realized for most graphic suite I have used over the years. The more powerful the software is, the less intuitive it becomes.

For business purposes, this package is fine in value and good for the long run. For regular personal use, it is not that expensive, but although not that cheap either. CorelDraw Graphics Suite X6 offers an excellent array of functionality. It gives you a wide range of design tools and holds your hand as you learn to get the most out of it.

Pros

  • It has creative vector morphing tools
  • Lots of new features to offer

Cons

  • The interface is not that intuitive
