Corel Graphics Applications
What is Corel Graphics Applications?
The Corel Graphics Applications can be full represented by two applications: CorelDraw, and Corel Photo-Paint.
The Corel Photo-Paint application is a raster, or bitmap, graphics editor, much like Adobe Photoshop and GIMP (and basically most of amateur and semi-professional image editors and photo enhancement applications). The Corel Photo-Paint is usually bundled with CorelDraw, which is its larger and more well-known cousin. Photo-Paint can open and access files made by its competitors, such as Photoshop; its native file format is called .cpt, and it has support for layered image editing (layers in Corel Photo-Paint are called objects).
Meanwhile, CorelDRAW is a full-fledged graphics editing suite usually bundled with another graphics editing program, Corel PhotoPaint. But while PhotoPaint is a raster (or bitmap) graphics editor, comparable to Adobe Photoshop or GIMP, CorelDRAW is a vector graphics editor much like the Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Fireworks. Using a vector graphics editor, one can freely create mechanical drawings or artwork, logos, comic book illustrations, and the like, that won’t be usually possible in a raster graphics editor. To this end, a CorelDRAW bundle enables projects to be edited simultaneously in either editor, with pop-up tools enabling a section of the project to be edited in PhotoPaint, and vice versa.
