CorelDRAW software box

Corel Corporation developed and released a software program called CorelDRAW, a vector graphics editor. The software is a robust graphics suite, providing many features for users to edit graphics. These features include contrast adjustment, color balancing, adding special effects like borders to images, and it is capable of working with multiple layers and multiple pages.

CorelDRAW was originally released in January 1989, running on the Windows 2.x operating system. Today, the software is still used by many people, with the latest version, X8, being released on March 15, 2016. CorelDRAW is primarily designed for the Windows operating system. There were several releases for macOS and macOS X, but poor sales resulted in the discontinuation of those versions. There was also a port to Linux in 2000, requiring a modified version of Wine to run the software.

CorelDRAW is available for download on the CorelDRAW website. Users can try the software with a free trial version, they can purchase an annual subscription, or they can purchase it for a one-time cost.
