I have been a long-time CorelDRAW user in the past, using versions 6 till 9 intensively. I've used newer releases (12 and X7) less frequently, since I moved to OSX, alas (there once was a Mac version, but that was quickly abandoned). I've seriously considered it and my wife is still using it to create illustrations for her Math classes. CorelDRAW especially is very efficient for technical drawing and illustration, although it is not a real CAD drafting system (it lacks some of the essential snapping tools and works less efficient for this type of drafting - besides, they provide CorelCAD for that, although that is a completely different software). The good control over grids, snapping and shape/curve editing make it a professional environment.It used to come with some other applications (CorelDREAM for 3D, R.A.V.E. for Flash), but the only constant companion software seems to be PhotoPAINT, which is a very usable alternative to Photoshop. A little less convincing, but still very usable and complete. I remember being spoiled with a huge clipart collection and a PRINTED catalog, back in the days.To me, CorelDRAW really shines when it comes to refined, precise technical drawings, combining curves, text, filled shapes, gradients and even integrating images. It is a good DTP system although less popular than Illustrator, which is its closest rival. For longer, multi-page documents, it becomes less handy, but for brochures, leaflets, manuals, calendars and all other documents with one or a few pages, it works really well. I also like the layer system, which allows you to define layers which don't print, layers which are repeated and all pages alongside the regular layer options such as show/hide and lock. The text system takes some getting used to, but you have full control over fonts, kerning, sizes, spacing and even linking boxes to flow the text.

Pros :

  • Very complete and professional vector editing.
  • Also includes PhotoPAINT, as an alternative to Photoshop
  • Good control over color, shape merging and combining.
  • Also usable for Multi-page documents (although not a full DTP system).
  • Snapping and Grids and precision editing work fine.
  • Fair Price and better-licensing options then Adobe.

Cons :

  • Less supported in the industry, which is focused on Adobe software.
  • If you compare with the full suite of Adobe tools, you only have Vector and Image with CorelDRAW
  • Not available for OSX.

According to statistics, most users do not use even the half of feature-rich programs' capabilities. One of the reasons — is that people just don't know about this or that feature or can't find it in the interface. The Photoshop Elements users may refer to Guided Edit image editing mode. It provides access to frequently used editing functions. In this mode, all tools are divided by the tasks. There are color correction, lighting and exposure, basic editing and other categories. When the user chooses a tool, its settings open directly on the Guided Edit panel. Photoshop Elements supports the layer masks. The value of the mask layer is difficult to overestimate. The processing of the images using layer masks blurs the line between amateur and professional photography. Using the masks, it is possible to do the restoration of damaged photographs, to get the endless possibilities of photo collages creation, to retouch and so on. Adobe Photoshop Elements includes the Organizer module. It helps to synchronize files between multiple PCs, to add smart tags to photos (for example, marks not clear photos or with contrast lack) and to recognize the people's faces on the images. You can use these tags to filter images. For example, it is easy to quickly find all the good pictures with your grandma. One of the features that is available from the Organizer window is direct upload of photos and videos on the Facebook. After selecting the appropriate option you will need to login with Facebook and allow to perform the actions through Adobe applications. After successful authorization Photoshop Elements will remember your login. You will only need to choose the files you want to upload, specify the albums for the photos uploading, as well as to decide the visibility status of files – for friends, for friends of my friends or for the everyone.

Pros :

  • Powerful image-manipulation tools.
  • Great export options.

Cons :

  • Slow import.
  • Big memory consumption.
