The core of the package consists of the two applications CorelDraw and Corel Photo-Paint, which seem squarely aimed at the Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop market respectively. As a heavy user of both the latter in my job, I was keen to see how Corel's offering measured up to the market leaders in both day-to-day and heavy-duty tasks. It was also important for me to find out how quickly I could migrate my skills across to Corel and start using it straight away - with little time to retrain on the job.
I wasn't disappointed. For one thing, the creative tools in CorelDraw particularly are exceptionally intuitive and robust. Take flowing text around paths, or inside objects for example. In CorelDraw, all you need to do is create your path or shape, then switch to the text tool and hover over the object. Then simply click and type, and hey presto, text on a path, completely painless!
In fact, text formatting features have to be the absolute strong point of CorelDraw overall, not only due to the innovative addition of WhatTheFont, a handy utility to analyse and identify unknown fonts. Also impressive are its table handling features, with seamless spreadsheet import and interactive handling of data.
Fills are also handled very naturally in CorelDraw, with almost Flash-style bisection of shapes by lines - great for creating and chopping up simple shapes to make more complex objects.Read more ›
If you've ever used Corel for graphics before, you'll be pleased to know that the interface, while obviously being updated for Vista, works in exactly the same way as it always has, with the optional welcome screen. If you're new to Corel, you won't have a problem navigating to the functions you need. That's the beauty of Corel, I always found their software incredibly easy to pick up - if you use Microsoft Word for your word processing tasks I can't recommend Corel WordPerfect enough. The menus are logically arranged, with options and sub-menus on each arranged in such a way that you quickly become accustomed to where things are, or if it's an action you haven't done before, where it's likely to be. That surely is something new users benefit from immensely. If you're familiar with this software from an earlier version, you won't have any problems here. Of course one or two things have been shifted around, streamlined a bit here and there, but it's all simple enough to find.
I've always used the Photo-Paint part of this software more than Draw itself, as it's very similar to Adobe Photoshop, just as functional and dare I say easier and more accessible to new users.Read more ›
