Corel upgrades graphics suite

Corel Corp. has launched the latest version of its graphics suite, CorelDraw 11. This is the first time the package has been launched simultaneously on both Mac and PC platforms and supports both Mac OS 10 and Windows XP out of the box.

The suite has three main elements; Draw, PhotoPaint and Rave. Draw now includes brushes that take advantage of drawing tablets, enhanced compatibility with other programs including Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator and support for PDF (portable document format), scalable vector graphics and XML (extensible markup language).

PhotoPaint has gained direct support for digital cameras under OS 10 and XP. This means users can import images and work on them straight from the camera. There is also a new cutout tool and enhanced web functionality that makes it simpler to create images for display online.

CorelDraw 11 also features the second release of Rave, which allows users to create Flash animations for the web. Corel has decreased the size of resulting Flash files and improved image optimisation. Support for symbols, behaviours and actions so you can link them onscreen to what a user does have also been added. Users will also be able to animate text on a path for the first time.

Several third-party applications ship with CorelDraw, of which ScanSoft OmniPage SE OCR (optical character recognition) software is new to the list. This allows you to scan text documents and import them into the main applications.

Existing CorelDraw Graphics Suite 10 users can preorder an upgrade to version 11 for the price of shipping from 1 July until 30 September.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.

The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
