I'm a lifelong designer that was raised and taught on Adobe products. After college, one of my first jobs was with an architectural sign company, which used CorelDraw. I consider myself lucky to have learned to use the software. Corel had some amazing features not found in Illustrator such as the ability to set your Scale so you don't outgrow your artboard (which I believe is a 3rd party add on for Illustrator), and the ability to quickly clip pictures by manipulating the surrounding nodes with the Shape Tool, and the list goes on...

Adobe has great software which I have used extensively over the last 15 years, there is no question about it. However, I am amazed at the value that the CorelDraw suite offers... especially given the price point at almost 1/4 the cost. The beautiful 300+ page book that comes with the suite is fantastic (a whole chapter on colors spaces? How awesome is that to have as a reference no matter what level you are as a designer). Plus all of the fonts, clipart, etc... I highly recommend the hard copy vs the download just for the book.

The only slight drawback to me is that the Corel hotkeys are different than Adobe's hotkeys. But, Corel provides a fold-out chart labeling all of the hotkeys (very cool on their part).

I will add to this review as I delve more into this latest release. But at the moment, it's such a great tool to use. My goal is to slightly break away from Photoshop and see what Photo-Paint can do.

I'm an illustrator and graphic designer, and I've been using CorelDraw Graphics Suite since... oh, gosh, probably version four. I don't know exactly, but I've been using it at least since the early nineties, so I've been using it almost from the start.

The school where I studied digital illustration, design and animation used mostly Adobe products on Macs. At the time, I'd take what I'd learned, go home, and then do the same thing with CorelDraw on my computer. I quickly discovered that there are two, maybe three, major differences between CorelDraw and those other programs.

1. CorelDraw Graphics Suite gives you several programs--like a vector-design program and a photo-manipulation program--in one and doesn't make you pay extra for filters and other features that should be included.

2. CorelDraw Graphics Suite is a lot cheaper than the full version of even one of those products. (Check out Adobe Photoshop CS6 to compare, and remember that Photoshop doesn't include a vector-design program.)

3. Most other illustrators and graphic designers still prefer Adobe products. I have no idea why, but they often look down on CorelDraw.

The fact is that there's nothing you can do with those other programs that you can't do with CorelDraw Graphic Suites. I once met a woman who ran a design studio, and she told me all the designers who worked under her used Adobe products--but she preferred to fix their work in CorelDraw. We both agreed it was the better program.

Why would you want to pay more to get less?

I have no problem strongly recommending the two main products in this package, CorelDRAW and PHOTO-PAINT, but the packaging may make it seem you're getting more than you think you're getting. This review is for the entire package as marketed. I'll comment on the individual pieces in the review below. I'd like to underscore, as others have noted, that the 300+ page hardbound GUIDEBOOK is outstanding. Reviewing that alone it would get 4 out of 5 stars from me.

Also, note that this is not currently available for native Macintosh platforms. I can't downgrade my rating for that, but it should be noted. If you're a Mac person, read no further.


* CorelDRAW X6 and PHOTO-PAINT X6 are professional grade digital imaging and graphics products
* Outstanding included GUIDEBOOK
* Interfaces are superior to Adobe's similar products
* "Hints" dock is like an interactive teacher
* Online videos are VERY useful and well done
* Utilizes 64-bit multi-core technology (VERY noticeable speed differences)
* Large library of images, frames, backgrounds, templates, etc.

I first came across Corel Draw in version one. In those days (~1980) there wasn't the pressure on companies to provide copy protection to their software, so I put in the floppies one by one. I think that in those days Corel wanted their program to get the most exposure so maybe they didn't mind.

If so, it was worth their while, because I upgraded to version two, and carried on until version 6. To start with, Corel was the only program on the block that gave PC owners the kind of programs that Adobe was supplying for the Mac. Corel took that one step further and gave us a one-stop shopping product that had everything that a PC owner would want in graphics at the time.

That meant a drawing program, and usually a couple of other graphics programs as well. But Corel also included in the box a number of fonts, and plenty of clip art. This attitude has continued up to now with a whole bunch of applications, most in the box, but some (like Painter) have a separate existence.

Unfortunately, putting all this graphics power into the hands of people who weren't trained led to some recurring design mistakes, like heading text that went across the whole page in an arc, or parts of the page having a box around it. Add to that the people who would add clip art to every blank space, and it was easy to tell a document that had the "Corel Treatment."

Luckily most of those people have decided to drop the superfluous touches since then, and reasonably carefully used Corel Draw can help would-be artists improve their work. In fact, the program is probably the most user-friendly in that Corel includes a high-quality color book that invites the user to "Give it a try" for each feature. Corel comes with the book, a slipcase, the DVD, and a quick keyboard guide.
