Corel Draw X6

I run a design agency and have had Corel products since they came out with Corel Draw version 1 only floppy disks. Most of my employees prefer to use the Adobe Creative Suite but Corel has always been at this level so I was happy to try this new version as it competes with Adobe for the higher end design market.
This is my initial review and I will post updates as we use it to run a complete project.

What is it ?

It is a suite of software for visual design from painting through to photography and website design.
The main programs are:

Corel Draw X6 - vector graphics software,
Corel Photo Paint - a poweful photo editor,
Corel web designer - a drag and drop website design system supporting all modern technologies,
Corel Connect - a project sharing and management centre.
Corel Capture - software for capturing images and screens from the computer.

There are also several other add-ins to allow printer duplexing (print both sides), video tutorials and some add-ins for the photo package. There is also a huge suite of fonts, layouts and graphics included.

Loading

The suite comes on a single DVD and loads with little user intervention except for registering etc. You need to download the Web design software after registration as it is not on the initial DVD for some reason.
Manual
The suite comes with a hardbound well illustrated quality manual which is well written and easy to follow as a course or just a dip in when help is needed. This is probably the best quality manual I have ever used.

Corel Draw

This is a solid program and allows you to produce anything from a simple logo to a full high quality vector graphics.

5.0 out of 5 stars CorelDRAW proves it still has excellent pedigree 27 Jun. 2012
Platform for Display:PC|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It seems like CorelDRAW has been around forever as I remember using this product back in the days of Windows 3.1 over 20 years ago. Even back then it was an amazing piece of software and it's a testament to the product that it's stood the test of time.

Nowadays CorelDRAW is a whole suite of applications, with CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 consisting of a range of separate packages. There's the 2 primary applications, CorelDRAW itself, along with PHOTO-PAINT. Augmenting these are a collection of useful utilities - Bitstream Font Navigator for font management, PowerTrace for bitmap conversion, Website Creator X6 for website design, CAPTURE for screen capturing, PhotoZoom Pro 2 for plug-ins, and CONNECT for image browsing.

The interface to CorelDRAW itself is fairly intuitive and easy to use, though it can be a bit overwhelming at first. The workspace provides an extensive set of controls, with the Objects Properties docker containing a huge array of properties divided into sections, so many complex tasks can be accessed without having to drill down loads of menu. When first confronted by all these controls it at first seems a little complex, but you soon realise this actually makes usability a lot easier.

CorelDRAW has always had a huge range of fonts, and now the list is even longer, every font you could possibly imagine is included. Some new vector drawing tools are also included, namely Smear, Twirl, Attract and Repel, which can transform shapes into all kinds of weird and wonderful forms.

Generally CorelDRAW incorporates so many features and has so many ways of manipulating vector images that you can't help but have fun with it. With a bit of patience it's easy to get to grips with the application's more advanced functions.

4.0 out of 5 stars All you need graphics wise 16 April 2013
By Dave VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:PC|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
There are so many feature in Corel Draw that it will take a novice quite some time to get to grips with most of the features. I do wonder if anybody will get to grips with all that the programs in this suite have to offer. On the flip side this is a very powerful package and should do virtually everything in the graphics environment, a professional package with lots of extras to help.

There are 5 main programs on the disk plus another, Website Creator, that the user can download for no extra charge.

The included hard back manual is very comprehensive and a refreshing change from the modern trend to provide a manual on a DVD or online. This is the place to start for beginners, like me.

Before even using the basic Photo paint I was offered an upgrade to premium for "only" just less than a hundred quid. With photo paint you can start from scratch or an existing or even scan an image in. Again lots of options but my first attempts using the 'smart carver' were not vey good. More practice needed.

I suppose the main program is Draw and despite clicking the do not ask me again for the upgrade I was offered it again. I just want to get to grips with what i have before buying other stuff. The possibilities here are boundless limited by your own imagination and flair. When you look at some of the featured designs they are truly impressive.

I would question the need for a font manager but I suppose because of the huge number of different fonts then it may be useful but are all the fonts needed? I still don't get wingdings and the like.

Corel capture grabs a screen image either still or animated. With lots of options including a menu capture facility this seems ideal for those 'how to' presentations and much more.
