Corel draws up new graphics suite

The latest version of Corel's graphics suite, CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 11, will hit stores across Australia next week.

Available on both Mac OS and current Windows versions excluding Windows 95, the suite will retail for $1,249. A version 11 upgrade will be available to users of CorelDRAW 9 or CorelDRAW 10 Graphics Suite for $499.

The product will be made generally available on 12 August.

New features in the suite's Draw 11 application include brushes that take advantage of drawing tablets, enhanced compatibility with other programs including Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator and support for PDF, scalable vector graphics and XML.

ScanSoft OmniPage SE OCR software is a new third-party addition. This allows users to scan text documents and import them into the main applications.

Elsewhere, PhotoPaint 11 has direct support for digital cameras under OS 10 and XP. There is also a new cut-out tool and enhanced Web functionality that makes creating images for display online easier.

The second release of Corel Rave allows users to create Flash animations for the Web. Support for symbols, behaviours and actions has also been added. Users will also be able to animate text on a path for the first time.

A stand-alone version of CorelDRAW 11 will be available for $946, or $499 for the upgrade.

Corel is also offering a technology protection upgrade. Users who buy the International English version of CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 10 for Windows before August 31, 2002, will be offered a reduced Suite 11 upgrade price of $99. This is available through Corel Customer Service on 1800 658 850.
