I have been using CorelDraw since 12 years and i think its one of the best vector graphic software. I started using CorelDraw 6 initially and i have upgraded since then as CorelDraw has added many additional features and enhancements to its package. "in my opinion CorelDraw 12 is the best software launched by CorelDraw till date because of its easy to use interface and excellent features that are included in this package. " Before i began using CorelDraw i used to use other graphic software but they had problems of formats but CorelDraw 12 the graphic suite has no such problems at all and it can be operated on any platform with great easy and convenience. Its highly suitable for desktop publishing jobs and is used world wide in the advertising industry.

okay but what is it and what does it do exacly and what makes it stand out from other software
CorelDraw 12 consists of three programs: CorelDraw itself for vector graphics, Photo-Paint ... more
for bitmap painting and photo editing and RAVE for creating animations. As in previous versions, there are also utilities such as CorelTrace, for tracing bitmaps, and CorelCapture, for screen grabs. You might think that by the 12th iteration of a graphics application, there wouldn't be much new left to add. Corel is ingenious enough to have though up some very useful improvements, though, such as the SmartDrawing tool. Draw a freehand triangle with this tool and it becomes a real triangle, draw a rough ellipse and it becomes a perfect ellipse, draw a freeform squiggle and it becomes a beautifully curved squiggle. If you need temporary guide lines to help align objects, CorelDraw 12 provides dynamic guides, which you can snap to and later delete when you've finished with them. Talking of snapping, you can snap an object to snap points in other objects, with the target point highlighting as you drag near to it. Symbols, introduced in CorelDraw 11, save space in Web design by taking as much file space as an object, no matter how many copies of them you create. Now you can build libraries of symbols to re-use in different drawings and distinguish them from objects by their blue handles. CorelDraw 12 can delete arbitrary segments from drawings with the Virtual Segment Delete tool and use the Eyedropper and Paintbucket together to transfer not just colour, but properties like transparency from one object to another. The only real improvement to PhotoPaint is the addition of a Touch-Up brush, which helps remove blemishes like dust and scratches from scanned photographs. Like the other modules of the program though, PhotoPaint can optimise finished images for export to Microsoft Office or WordPerfect Office applications and now provides a separate Export command to save images in a wide range of different graphics formats. The improvements to RAVE, the animation module of the Suite, are pretty much the same as in CorelDraw. They i
