A Definitive Compilation of Graphic Tools to Help Independent Multimedia Artists

By Maria Bernabe

On Wednesday, May 14, 2014

For independent multimedia artists, getting the word online is crucial. Where else could they get the information they need to promote and advertise their works? Being a close friend of one, I decided to take a look at CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6. It may not be the latest, but it is very suitable to indie artists. Let’s take a look.

Because it is a compilation of different design programs for designers and illustrators, it can be used to create various logos and other graphic art, edit photos, develop user-friendly websites, convert bitmap images to vectorized form, and share all these online. It also features a content administrator to help artists manage what they share on the Web.

To accomplish all the things that I mentioned above, the suite includes Photo-Paint, Capture, Website Creator, PowerTRACE, DRAW, CONNECT, PhotoZoom Pro, and ConceptShare. In addition to these, CorelDRAW also features secondary utilities which make the job easier and faster. It’s like a one-stop shop for all graphic-related tools you need. What’s more, it includes free tutorials which are very useful for beginners.

CorelDraw Graphic Suite X6 is the ultimate compilation of graphic tools for experts and beginners alike. It combines vector drawing, photo editing, website design, and drawing tools all in one suite. With today’s cloud technology, it is the perfect alternative.

Pros

  • Provides smooth workflow between programs in the suite
  • Has available support and tutorials online

Cons

  • Not all commercial printers accept its image formats

One of the Most Powerful Graphics Suites That Has Several New Exciting Features

By Christine Diaz

On Tuesday, May 13, 2014

The new and improved CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 comes out with the most significant upgrades in this version. There’s this cool additional color style which makes some objects change their fill and outline colors at once. Even if colors are not in same group or link, you can make them harmonize together by grouping and modifying the colors of the entire group together. This altogether makes your images look better even in case the levels of relative contrast are the same. That means changing color palette in seconds will do, and this feature is one of the best and I like it.

The more enhanced CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 is the ultimate upgrade of the previous version that already has an outstanding graphics suite. In which Corel focuses on how to improve output of its users by adding new features like the new style engine, enhancing document and typography layout and the built-in X64 executable. These features help users better in bringing creative ideas to life.

Pros

  • It has an enhanced style and typography engines
  • It’s cheaper compared to others

Cons

  • Available for Windows user only

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

By Ivy Paloma

On Thursday, April 3, 2014

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
  • Requires proposed level of integration between applications
