Graphics Suite is an impressive collection of powerful design software
that can tackle all sorts of design jobs. Included in the package are:
CorelDRAW, the main application for vector design and layout; Corel
PHOTO-PAINT, for editing and retouching photos, Corel CAPTURE, for
screengrabs; ConceptShare, a collaboration service; and the Bitstream
Font Navigator. There are also a bevy of smaller utilities such as a
bar-code wizard and an app for helping users optimize two-sided
With a suite that includes that many programs and
features, it's essential to have solid in-program help, and CorelDRAW
is loaded with dynamic hints, video product tours, and hands-on project
tutorials that will have you designing elements in no time. Expert
advice from professional designers walks users through specific
practices such as airbrushing logos and creating textile patterns.
Two of the most interesting features of the X4 version are interactive
tables and professional templates. The new table features are simple to
use yet powerful, making it easy for anyone to add data to a newsletter
or flier without spending much time at all on the presentation.
Contextual hints on the right side of the interface will help out if
users get stuck.
The new templates for professionals are
diverse and presented in a nifty interface that provides all sorts of
useful information. You can sort templates by type--such as brochures,
posters/signs, business cards, and newsletters--or by industry,
although that list was empty except for "Landscaping." The interface
also includes a space for accessing your own saved CDT templates, which
can be created easily through the File menu.
