A great graphics package,
This review is from: CorelDRAW X4 Upgrade (CD-ROM)
Corel draw has been one of the best vector graphics packages available for a while and this new version hit the mark as usual. The user interface is simple to use, even for a non-graphically minded person like me. The ability to produce simple and great looking vector graphics for use in web pages and software applications makes this a perfect addition to any developers tool kit. It provides a greater degree of flexibility than Microsofts Expression Design (Microsoft Expression Studio) whilst keeping the application straightfoward to use.
The photo editing software included is quite good but realy is not match for the superb Corel Paintshop Pro (Paint Shop Pro Photo X2). Power Trace is a great bitmap to vector converter which enables this product to easily compeate with Adobe illustrator and certainly win in terms of usability for the no graphics designer.
There is one fly in the ointment, there is a problem with this program when it is installed on a machine with SQL Server 2008 installed the application fails to run. There is a fix availbale from the Corel Web site to correct this issue.
