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.

It is now many years that Corel develops excellent software and different Suite to allow photographers, designers, and technicians to create and improve at the best their projects. PaintShop Pro is a great product for photo editing that is included in CorlDraw Graphic Suite and can also be purchased individually. With the many features and professional tools made available can be considered one of the competitors of Photoshop.

Pros :

  • The strength of Paintshop Pro is definitely a chance to work on their own in a highly professional photo and at the same time using an interface quite user-friendly, thanks to tabs Manage, Adjust and Edit will allow you to gain confidence day after day with each individual instrument.
  • Like all major photo editing software, you have available the feature multilayers, due to the levels you can apply different types of effects and nuances applying a superposition of levels thus having the only limit of your imagination and creativity.
  • Paintshop Pro provides all types of automatic image correction, a large number of filters and effects applied to your photo, different types of Adjustment (brightness, contrast, shadows, saturation, Color, Clarity, Tones, etc ..), several useful tools how much it used Clone Brush, different kinds of Brushes, Text tool, Pen, erase, red eye tool, etc .. Currently with the latest version (Paintshop Pro X8), you have two types of licenses: PaintShop Pro X8, sold on offer with 10% discount at a cost of € 62.99 (44.99 if you have already purchased the product, and you only need to upgrade to the latest version) PaintShop Pro Ultimate X8, this also sold on offer with 10% discount at a cost of € 79.99 (62.99 if you have already purchased the product, and you only need to upgrade to the latest version) PaintShop Pro is also sold in the money-back formula, then you will have 30 days to claim a refund if the software does not meet your needs.

Cons :

  • Some effects and some tools are a bit too basic and not very attractive, but for the price at which it sold really great value for money.

Corel VideoStudio Pro X7 is a stand-alone video editing tool that provides a straightforward editing interface for newcomers, a quite accessible interface for additional customization options, 64-bit performance, and some additional bonus features, all at a price well under $100.

PaintShop Pro X5 Ultimate has two big advantages over Photoshop: a lower price and easier-to-use modes for beginners who might be intimidated by working with layers. PaintShop Pro X5 Ultimate is a versatile, pro-quality full-featured photo editing program which even demanding, experienced Photoshop users will find perfectly capable. It crashed once on my underpowered mini-notebook during many hours of testing, but other than that I can find very little here on the down side.
