Pros: When I work in Corel Draw, I have the freedom to work with vector images that allows me to increase or decrease their size and the images keep the quality, they are not pixilated or degraded. This is an excellent feature to handle poster design or large advertising banners, preserving the quality of the images.

Cons: The other day I was working with another free vector application I realized that they were not compatible with the created files, I had to work again from scratch in Corel Draw. I think they should have more compatibility with other applications of vector images.

Pros: I love corel draw, working with it has been an amazing experience, it has truly set us apart in the fact that our presentations, documents and poster's quality has improved greatly, we always get compliments from our clients. There is a major difference when presenting for example a pie chart taken directly from excel that one vectorized with corel and our clients love it.

Cons: I have almost no negative things to say about corel draw, perhaps that it can feel a little bit clunky when you first work with it, but after you get comfortable with it, it is just a piece of cake

Overall: I truly recommend you use corel and set yourself apart from everybody who just use the usual graphs and images directly from office programs.

Pros: In my opinion it is a vectorial program with which I can work in strokes and take my designs to engravings embossed stamped.

Cons: no matter how much you build an image with vector graphics, the visualization should ultimately be translated into pixels and I do not get the quality I'm looking for in its entirety

Pros: Corel Draw is a program for professional use that can be used also by beginners, it presents a very simple interface with a great variety of options to edit and create designs, probably the best program for vectors, it also supports different formats, ideal for high quality works

Cons: Maybe it can be difficult to understand the program in the beginning because it is a very complete software in options, and it takes time to know what each option is for, however it is an incredible and professional program

Overall: I learned how to design and use vectors with this amazing and professional software

Pros: my favorite functionality is the part of vector images that are going to change very often in size. In other programs such as Photoshop for large scale printing of logos or icons usually have problems, here not.

Cons: It is difficult to use at the beginning, you have so many options that knowing how to use what one needs takes time, you have to read and see tutorials to take advantage of it

Overall: Great for large or small prints, it's great for preview, especially logos and icons

Pros: CorelDRAW is compatible with a variety of formats, the program offers unparalleled color accuracy and flexibility, also comes with an very intuitive LiveSketch tool, and allows to customize the workspace with our favorite tools, custom desktop and icon size.

Cons: CorelDraw uses a lot of ressources of your PC so you need a very powerful processor, Corel Draw is Windows only software, and it's as a little bit expensive.

Pros: Diversity in tools that make a graphic designers jog easier and opens up new creativity options when designing. Artwork created using this software will always be of high quality with the only limitation being the users creativity.

Cons: Unfortunately or fortunately requires a powerful computer to fully utilize it as it should be. This can be a bit troublesome to starter designers but I would highly recommend they bear the cost as it is totally worth it.

Pros: Instead of buying any logo or template I prefer creating it by myself and I often use CorelDraw to create such unique logo or elements. Whether you¿re a new user or an experienced designer, Corel DRAW makes it easy to get started with easy user interface. You can quickly find fonts for any project with the font search and filtering feature. With new features of Corel Draw you will discover your hidden creativity. These new features are symmetry drawing mode, block Shadow tool, bitmap perspectives and publishing option to Wordpress. With faster processing and the new automatic alignment and straighten option CorelDraw is a competitive design software in the market.

Cons: All is perfect except price. I thing price is high for new designers. But there is also 30 day trial option. Worth to try.

The smartest vector drawing application I've ever used so far.

Pros: CorelIDRAW is the most easy to use vector graphics editor, provides clear interface with many great functions. And huge plus for my favorite option which is LiveSketch.

Cons: CorelIDRAW is a bit expensive to buy outright. Other than the price I don't see any more cons of this software.

Overall: By far the biggest addition is the LiveSketch tool which provides great ability to recreate natural media effects turning them into editable and infinitely scalable strokes.

Pros: The best thing about CorelDRAW is the versatility it offers when undertaking a design project as well as the variety of formats with which it is compatible. Other programs do not allow working in PDF or PSD formats, for example. This problem was solved with CorelDRAW. In the same way, the measurement systems used by the program are very intuitive, which undoubtedly facilitates the work, saving time.

Cons: Perhaps the only limitation I find in CorelDRAW is the need to innovate in terms of using simpler commands for users who are not as skilled. Sometimes having to look in the menu of the program with the mouse cursor, it becomes somewhat uncomfortable for those who are not so professional and are approaching the world of graphic design for the first time.

Overall: I have a lot to thank CorelDRAW for. Thanks to this software I have created the best illustrations and the best images for the WEB page of the company where I work, earning the respect of my superiors. CorelDRAW is the best tool for professionals.

Pros: It is very good, since compared to other graphic design applications is much more versatile, less heavy, with more tools and very intuitive when using it in case you do not know the application. It is very easy to use and learn to work on its interface.

Cons: Among the negative things is that it is not easy to get a copy to install, since it has very little distribution and a lot of competition, since in the graphic design market the competition is quite high.

Overall: You can make excellent graphic design work with this application.

Pros: Where CorelDRAW excels is in its ease of use. This is no frills drafting software that has a number of embedded features for use across many platforms. Pros include:
-easy to use interface
-save-able templates
-great help desk
-ability to import aerial photography
-layering

Cons: The one area that CorelDRAW could use some help is in it's ability to create maps with real world measurements. For example: if I set the scale to 1" = 20', it would be nice if I could prompt a command to draw a line that is exactly 20' long. Instead, you have to manually draw the line and then measure to get it the correct length. Also, the layers feature in the Object Manager can be a bit troublesome but once you understand how it works it is okay.

Overall: Super user-friendly drafting software!

Pros: Corel Draw offers one of the biggest set of templates for design and edition, because it brings with more than 10000 images and 2000 pictures, and is virtually impossible that you will not find what are you looking for, this is the best option if you do not want to create and you skills are basic on edition.

Cons: In the beginning can be a little overwhelming to know where to start, because the software comes with hundreds of tool for edition, but with some practice you can filter, select and customize the tools you need.

Cons: The tool is pretty difficult to figure out for the first time, so make sure you are in it for the long haul. Watch a lot of videos or get with someone who knows what they are doing because the shortcuts are not super intuitive at first.

Overall: Good for people who know digital inking and drawing.

Pros: Corel is easy to use in my opinion and it is ubiquitous. While it isn't my go-to illustration software it is more capable than it gets credit for. I do honestly think there exists some functionality in Corel that is easier than Illustrator which is usually my go-to software for the tasks.

Cons: What I like least is that it is a software that isn't taken very seriously. I think it's a powerful bit of software that accomplishes a great many things, the price may seem a little high compared to other options.

Pros: CorelDraw has evolved from 2nd class software to really good and reliable option for Photoshop. It is quick, some options (for example to create measurement drawings) I prefer to do in Corel compared to Photoshop. One really good pluspoint is the pricing.

Cons: There unfortunately are some bugs which lead to unstability issues. Needs a powerful PC, sometimes it freezes and does not support mac environment. For my needs, Photoshop does some things better, Corel does some.

Pros: Corel draw is an excellent drawing software, it has so many great functionalities, Creating posters for example is just really easy (after you learn every command), and the fact that you can customize the graphs comming from excel make corel a great tool for engineering.

Cons: For you to work smoothly on corel you need to learn so many commands, so getting the hang of it can take a while. Also it requires lots of power for it to run without any issues.

Overall: I strongly recommend corel draw for engineers, is not a tool that should be used just by designers, since it can improve graphs and presentations created just with office, and add a more professional touch that always surprises clients.

Pros: CorelDraw is relatively easy to use, with an interface that has a lot in common with most of the other software products in this category. This makes it easy to pick up on the basics, which means it is easy to get beyond the basics quickly.

Cons: The product allows one installation, but a product like this should allow two installations - a desktop and a laptop installation. This is almost a necessity for someone wanting to take business out of the office for a client visit.

Most irritating is that the software is buggy. This seems to be true of their more sophisticated software - running into bugs that break the code and crash the software.

A Nice alternative to Photoshop with plenty of options and addons.

Pros: A brilliant feature in coreldraw is being able to draw at 1:1 scale on an unlimited canvas / workspace. Unlike Adobe Illustrator which locks you to a certain size workspace, You can use corel to your hearts content. The package is PERFECT for sign and vehicle wrap designing and accepts a huge range of file types.

Cons: Corel can be quite slow and times and when rendering gradients the program can lag and crash. It has its bugs but is still a great piece of kit

I can insert fonts and edit them as well as clip art to complement my design. What I like most is all the features are on one suite, they're not separated on several apps.

Cons: I like the software just like it is, it have some details about how heavy can get the files to process for the computer once I've been working on, this detail can end on a crash failure sometimes when the computer doesn't have the capabilities for the size of the file created.

Overall: I work daily with graphic design, logos and web design and I have costumers every day just asking for a design or something and I use this software to make a product according their needs

Cons: As is so common in the world of graphic arts, students and new users tend to be confused by the large number of effects and tools at the beginning

Overall: From my experience, I could say that it is a great alternative because of how stable it is in relation to open source products. I consider that having the option for one to be able to register per month and per year make it more comfortable for the user's pocket

Pros: You have fully functional graphic app with the vector based Draw and Photoshop rival with Paint, as well as many other apps to do lots of graphic, photo, design work for print and web design. The basic use of the app has stayed the same since I first purchased the product in the mid-90s, so I have not had to re-learn with each additional version.

Cons: It would be nice to have Draw and Paint in the same app, but since the basics of the apps have not changed in over 20+ years, the cons are not outweighed by the pros of ease of use, intuitive design, and easy to use features.

Overall: I can not only develop a web page, but also album artwork within the same app.

Pros: Is the most versatile image editor that exists and with the widest variety of functions.
It's supports various applications by allowing you to import images from the others files for multiples editions.
It is easy in terms of the use of the multiple geometrical figures, grouping oh object, work by layers, save the work done.
Although it has professional staff and is very useful in the graphic design industry, it was designe to be used by the general public since it is very friendly in the handing of its diverse design and drawing functions.
Is ideal to create, merge objetos from a photo, with which we can obtain a unique design treasuring pleasant moments shared in the company of those we love the most, with this tool you can let the imagination fly to create amazing albums.
This program was created for windows so it is within everyone is reach.
Multiple finishes to measure photos with professional finishes that have nothing to envy to the most professional editing programs.
You can work with layers, although not the same as autocad, but you can import autocad files for replays and different functions.
This programs is the most popular in the market.

Cons: Coreldraw can not be used in blueprint editions like Autocad.
The family of colors is not very broad and the finishes are not so diverse.
So many functions makes design professionals prefer other programs for some jobs.

Pros: Corel draw is a powerful tool for diagraming and vectorization. It has allowed me to make posters both in the academic world and in the oil industry. It has so many functionalities that you can make any type of drawings and presentations. In the company I currently work is the most used graphic design tool and everybody is required to know how to use it, from engineers to administrators.

Cons: At first it can be a little challenging since it has too many functionalities and options, so learning it can be difficult. Sometimes it can be a bit clunky and some bugs can happen, sometimes at saving documents it wont do it or it wont close, so you have to create a new project and copy everything you just did.

Pros: As an audiovisual designer I work a lot with vector files and there are designers who work in Corel to ensure a work or style. In the same way that I use AI as the first alternative in vectors, I use Corel as a second option or when the project requires it (because there is a design made on CD).

Cons: Many years have passed since the last Corel 7, which was probably the most used design software. And the new Corel has been updated but without taking advantage of small processors (as does its competition). It is necessary to have a lot of machine potential to be able to work fluently. Maybe it's a software architecture problem, but they should include some accelerator or something that makes work in small workstations fluid.

Pros: What I find most remarkable is its vectorial character, a quality that is very useful especially when the work done has to be enlarged or printed in large size, because if it were based on pixels, the sharpness of the image would be lost on which one worked.
Another good feature is that it works based on objects that are independent of each other, and it is also multipage (which significantly differentiates it from similar programs such as Illustrator that is not).
Also worth noting is the fact that it is one of the few commercial software that can be installed indiscriminately on a PC, or on a mac (apple) and even under Linux, allowing to save, import and export documents from a wide range of formats such as: Adobe Illustrator , PCT (Macintosh PICT), PSD (Adobe photoShop), etc

Cons: The basic disadvantage that I find is the same as it applies to any graphic software of vector character: you must have a computer equipped with a powerful and powerful processor that allows you to perform all the calculations necessary to design with this software, a task that becomes a lot slower to the extent that the number of data rises, as more elaborate designs are desired.
In particular work with surfaces composed of a large number of points, because they must be characterized with enough detail, and in a number of occasions I had to "filter" the number of data that make up that surface to use the software and get results in a peremptory time

On the other hand, it is not compatible with freeware programs such as the inskcape.

Overall: In general it has allowed me to represent with excellent quality, the various products for whose development I have used this software.
I am currently testing the latest version 2017 and the LiveSketch tool is really sensational as it allows to draw freehand vector curves directly on the screen, being very promising the tests that I have and am doing.

Overall, a pretty good software for designers

Pros: I started using this in college years ago. Things have definitely improved since then. I am able to precisely design ads, files, banner graphics, brochures plus much more!

Cons: It takes a while for larger files to export, but I just work on something else in the meantime. Also, it is kind of pricey if you don't use it too often. Make sure you are going to get your money's worth out of it when considering purchasing.

Pros: I use this software to design menus, posters and flyers. It's easy to create layouts for print products quickly while I am with clients, and is intuitive.

Cons: It can slow down depending on the size of the project (I created a 6ft long banner which it struggled to work with) BUT that's not noticeable when creating standard sized projects.

Pros: I love the diversity of this software. It allows me to design what I have in my mind and put it into play on the page, so to speak. The tutorials are fantastic for helping you to learn.

Cons: The price, although it isn't as expensive as some other programs I have looked at! It was also a little bit hard to get the hang of at first.

Overall: This is a great software for using in graphics design and illustration!

Pros: It is easy to use because its commands come in Spanish, its interface is reachable, I can create products from my own authorship, it is simple to use for basic design tasks. It is very popular and I get tutorials of use everywhere. Allow me to intervene my photographs and vector them

Cons: the machine must have recourse because if the design processes are not slow, the payment of the license is limiting for beginners or small companies

Overall: I can design common elements quickly, vectorize photographs or intervene image files

Pros: This software allows people to bring their creativity to life. my students are using this to design a product that we will laser cut. the students also picked up on the use of this software within 15-20 minutes.

Cons: the only thing that is a barrier for us using this software is that it is only programmed on one computer so my class of 15 has to plan when to use it.

Overall: students were able to apply learning to real life applications

Pros: By far, it's the most convenient and handy tool to produce vectors in the graphic designs that really produce work close to reality.

Cons: The limitation of the tools availability and loading time of the software often makes this software vulnerable to for professional work.

Overall: I saved lot of time and produce the efficient work with several magnificent effects and filters.

Pros: I can vectorize anything what I want, because the software allows you to edit with a very high level of precision, you can put an image on the screen and start drawing and if you take the necessary time the result will be impressive, you can export your files to many formats, including PDF, JPEG and TIFF, it comes with a huge set of tools for edition and the color palette is amazing.

Cons: It does not have a version for Androind, the only one that exist is so basic, and does not have even the half of the tools of the desktop version, others software offers Android versions more powerful.

Overall: Great tool for edition and vectorizing.

Pros: This is a very precise software to create, draw and design, it has all the tools that you need, for me is awesome because I can create and modify images with high precision to print draws in T-shirts, I can manage easily the vector tool and modify practically to the level of pixel with precision and later I have a image perfect with high detail and ready for print.

Cons: This software can be a little overwhelming if you do not get used to use it, because it has so many tools and options for edition and draw, so my advice if for you to keep focus in an specific feature, to get the most of this awesome software.

Pros: I have been using it for many years and it does everything I need it to do to generate images and graphics. For me I appreciate the backward compatibility between versions as I sometimes need to open old files for review or updating.

Cons: Expensive for what I need to do. I am not a heavy duty user and every update the software becomes more complex. More than I really require.

Pros: Corel Draw gives you the opportunity to create high-quality graphics content at a reasonable price. The software supports industry standard outputs of data for web development standard offset print products up to large format digital printing data.
I have not seen another piece of software that has a working area similar to Corel Draw.
Perfect for sign-making.

Cons: I am working with Corel Draw since version 3 and must say I didn't find a negative aspect in all the years. When it came to a complaint by my side i often had to admit that it was simply a user error.
On the other hand updates to fix bugs and errors were always done precisely by the software manufacturer.

Overall: I have been working for more than 20 years now with this software through several updates and upgrades. Without Corel Draw I would have had to learn more inconvenient programs which ¿by the way¿ don't offer better end results.

Pros: LiveSketch is VERY good.
Node editing made much easier.
Excellent Tablet Mode.
A good number of tools and resources for everything from logo design to photo manipulation to web design.
No matter your drawing style, you can get a smooth line: if you're a scratchy drawer, using multiple small strokes to build up a bigger line.
Excellent stylus support (including the ability to adjust stylus tilt, bearing and rotation in real time). A quick editing workflow. Each node has a distinct appearance depending on the handle or selection type, and the size, colours and shapes of the editing points are customisable via Options. More intuitive interactive sliders for gradients, blends, transparency and so on wrap up a decent release.

Cons: Expensive to buy outright, and on subscription. If you own a previous version of CorelDRAW Graphics Suite you can upgrade. Whilst the entirety of this suite is pretty good value just look again at the extensive list above if your eyes can take it.
There's always going to be a discrepancy of file between programs.

Overall: It's actually a very capable alternative to Photoshop, and if you're switching over the interface is easy to adapt to. As are the tools, in fact, as they share many similarities with Adobe's behemoth.
New in this version is a Healing tool, which enables the quick editing of blemishes; a Perspective correction tool that gives you a grid-based dialog to fix distortions in photos; and a Gaussian Blur lens a paintable mask that enables you to blur areas of your images non-destructively. There's quite a bit going for photo paint; its creative tools are solid and its typography options excellent.

Overall: Meets the main objectives and exceeds expectations, I like corel draw for the edition and design of vector drawings

Pros: Vector usage, and the ability to export to CAD, that's a huge advantage. You can do any image, logo, plan, or any other pixel format file and translate it to AutoCAD or any other software that reads or support DWG files, as simple as one click here, and another one there.

Vectorizing is so simple and you don't need any graphics background to learn it or do it.

Another big advantage in a more graphical language/matter is the ability to work with bezier tools, that allows you to have more control and not an automated guidance.

Overall: Vectorizing and free forms or more manual manage of vertex.
