Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Corel line of graphics software has always carried the burden of being the second choice and often the second experience of Adobe software users. Those who encounter the software after experience with the main Adobe-produced rivals (Illustrator and Photoshop) will experience it very differently than those who are looking to learn professional graphics from the start with Corel.

Though I am a very experienced user of Adobe products, I tried to experience Corel Draw (the vector graphics portion) and Photo Paint (the bitmap graphics portion) with an eye toward evaluating it as someone who wasn't already comfortable with a different interface, but who was interested in a professional level graphics package, as well as someone who may decide to transition away from the pricier Adobe products. I will offer my perspective from both of these viewpoints:

As a newcomer to pro graphics:

There is a lot of power and flexibility. Photo Paint offers alpha channels, lighting effects, masking, and a good selection of filters for those who want to "play" with images. It is able to open and save to a variety of file formats and can rasterize vector images. A lot of functions are quite intuitive (e.g., image straightening, filter effects), though programs with the breadth and depth of a professional program have a great many levels and no one who is new to them can grasp them immediately or without underlying knowledge of what all the terms mean. It's important not to mistake this graphics package as one designed for the hobbyist or person looking to modestly tweak images for web pages. The complex functionality it possesses is to allow folks working in industries that need finer work to get it done and it certainly allows for that and more.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've created graphics for years, but have primarily relied on Adobe and Macromedia products. Recently, I began to take notice of CorelDraw and was very impressed with the features and reviews. To be honest, CorelDraw x4 exceeded all my expectations by a long shot. Not only is this program easy to use, but it's easy to learn. They included 2 hours of DVD instruction which is helpful for both beginners and experienced users of graphics programs.

CorelDraw x4 is essentially 4 programs in one. First, and most important to me is Corel PHOTO-PAINT X4. I found this application to be very powerful, along the same lines as Adobe Photoshop. However, side by side, Corel PHOTO-PAINT X4 was better at manipulating the particular images I was working with. Their auto adjust feature most of the time was able to correct my photos over 70% of the time. The effects and adjustments menu is extensive and useful. I still don't know every feature, but I am sure I will master this program with the help of their Corel Tutor, help screens, included user's manual, and 2 hours of DVD instruction.

Next is their vector graphics program, CorelDRAW X4. This is a graphics creation and manipulation program, like Adobe Illustrator. If you don't know what vector graphics are, they are mathematical calculations that draw lines and other graphics each time an image is enlarged. It allows you to blow up an image to infinite amounts without getting the bitmap and pixel distortion you would get from making a simple enlargement. This is what all professional design studios use, and it makes it easy to take graphics and turn them into billboards, posters, car wraps, t-shirts, and more with perfect results.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as Good as Photoshop April 13, 2008
By Kendra
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've been a graphic designer/artist for many years. I have ONLY used Photoshop for photo editing, imaging, etc., and Illustrator for creating vector images. As a matter of fact, when I learned Photoshop, I was also "taught" that Corel was the poor-man's alternative-- the lesser program. However, I was lucky enough to receive this complete program to test and review. And, since I haven't upgraded Photoshop since version 7, I eagerly awaited the arrival of this program.

CorelDraw Graphics Suite x4 is really superb software. This is a great alternative to Photoshop with extensive image editing capabilities. It's quite powerful and more a professional tool than for appropriate for a general user; this is the kind of application around which training courses are built.

Installation was easy and seamless. Upon registration, Corel gives a nice little gift to new registered users of many megs of clipart. This can be a useful thing, but so far, after downloading same, I've had some difficulty in finding the collection on my local drive! Honestly, though, I don't use clipart. Ever. But, it's in my harddrive somewhere just in case I ever find the need for it.

Graphics programs such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and CorelDraw are serious tools. I've used these applications for advertising, photo manipulation and editing and everything you can imagine in the graphics world. To learn the true "ins and outs" of these tools, one really needs a teacher/mentor or a good training class. CorelDRAW Graphics Suite does come complete with a full training manual, Clipart and Font manual (the font manual is very useful), a handbook called "Insights from the Experts", and a Quick Start Guide.

CorelDraw is astoundingly powerful.
