I’ve long been a fan of CorelDRAW since I first played with version 2 & 3, the first I owned was CorelDRAW 4. I’ve given up telling people I use Corel PhotoPaint, rather than Adobe Photoshop, to avoid the looks of pity. To be honest I chose Corel, when self employed as I needed a graphics & photo editor and it was about 1/2 the price of the comparable Adobe applications. It was only after using it that I found not only is it affordable, it’s good.
I’m running Version 12 but the current release is “X3”. It’s a rather silly way to avoid Version 13* but I guess superstition & marketing wins over logic. It didn’t help London Zoo's "Christopher the Chameleon" when X3 was launched.
Cadalyst take a look at Corel’s X3 suite and like what they find.
* If ever considering “series” naming for projects think ahead. One example from this part of the world is the GM Holden Commodore car which adopted it’s “V-Car” project name for the model designation. The original was the “VB Commodore”, next was the “VC Commodore”, but for some reason it was followed by the “VH Commodore”…
