I really like Corel.

5.0 last month New

Comments: I use corel almost every day and it delivers exactly what I need, I'm very satisfied.

Pros:

Corel is easy to use, I learned a lot on my own, and I was able to solve the doubts in videos on the internet.

Cons:

I had some difficulties importing some files and ended up using another program.

I've used CorelDRAW since version 1.2!

5.0 9 months ago

Comments: Overall I am a devoted user even though I have lost countless hours of work from the software crashing mid job. Auto save has NEVER worked. It is still my best option for Graphic design even with its flaws.

Pros:

CorelDraw is affordable and is an excellent tool for T-shirt art. It is great for spot color design and separations.

Cons:

There are always new glitches in each new version Some never get fixed. The screen-printing users are widely ignored by Corel Corp. when we number in the millions of users. The two greatest features that should have been added years ago are the mixing of spot colors at on single point in a fade or fil, and universal color swap within a document regardless of tint.

it seems to me one of the best graphic design software

5.0 2 weeks ago New

Comments: CorelDraw is a powerful design tool for designers at all levels. It is a collection of sophisticated editing tools, a little difficult to use, it is addressed more to professionals. but I am very satisfied with what it does in graphic design

Pros:

-left click and right click do a very good job for selecting the color palette -very large prints can be made -measurements are very accurate

Cons:

-very large documents make the software difficult -the opening time of the software is very long -uses a lot of computer resources

It does almost everything, almost good

3.0 2 years ago

Comments: I work a lot with printers in my city, where CorelDraw is a standard. That's why I learned to use it and from then on my experience is good and in the aspects I mentioned I recommend it. It should be noted that it has a steep learning curve. It fulfills many functions and almost all kinds of graphical pieces can be solved smoothly, even without mastering it completely.

Pros:

A while back, the feature CorelDraw was known for was its ease of use and intuitive interface. They were the first to launch a version that allowed multiple pages in the same file, or the creation of forms by dragging the mouse. Today this virtue is maintained, it can work very well, and with a good integration with other applications and prepress and printing processes, and with the possibility of exporting to almost any format in the graphic environment, very well covering the requirements that can be asked of a program like this.

Cons:

Despite the above, I must say that at a certain point CorelDraw stagnated and was overtaken by excellent features from the competition (such as the shape creation tool or 3D mapping). On the other hand, I notice some structural instability in the software, and abrupt closures with loss of information are a constant that has never been solved. They frequently release new versions with minimal changes, but those kinds of basic problems don't get fixed.

Simple to use program for laser cutting

4.0 3 months ago

Pros:

CorelDRAW has a very intuitive and extensive interface. I use it mostly to import and modify vector and bitmap graphics for laser processing, which it works very well for.

Cons:

It's more difficult to use CorelDRAW for dimensioned drawings, but great for quick sketches.
