1 Introducing CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite X3 More than 20 Years of Innovation In 1985, Corel was founded on the promise of CorelDRAW®. Back then, a small development team building desktop-publishing solutions realized that there should be a better way to create graphics with a computer. Their eureka moment became CorelDRAW, a startlingly original application that set a new standard for graphics software. Now, more than 20 years later, and based on unprecedented input from our customers, Corel proudly unveils CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X3. This significant update includes more than 40 new and enhanced features that directly benefit the workflows of design professionals and occasional business users. Whether they’re creating company logos or working toward demanding production schedules, users can transform ideas into professional results with the help of this integrated suite of applications. Putting the Customer First Throughout the development cycle for CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X3, Corel consulted with its customers to better understand their needs and concerns. To gain fresh insights into customers’ use of the suite, Corel employees observed as users worked on various projects. As a result, the design process has been simplified to save time for customers in their day-to-day work. Application stability, speed, and ease of use were top priorities during the development process, resulting in dramatically improved performance. Support for transparency and spot colors has undergone a major revision, resulting in significant improvements. In addition, compatibility with other industry-standard software and formats, such as Adobe® Illustrator®, Portable Document Format (PDF), PhotoShop®, Corel® Paint Shop Pro®, and Microsoft® Office, is second to none. This ensures that users can collaborate and exchange files with confidence. Text handling has been significantly enhanced with the addition of the new Character and Paragraph Formatting dockers. Now, all of the controls are just a mouse click away. To ease the challenge of repurposing low-quality bitmap Reviewer’s Guide [ 1 ]

images, the new Corel® PowerTRACE has been added. This makes bitmap-to- vector conversion quick and easy. In addition, the new, integrated Image Adjustment Lab simplifies the process of correcting image color and tone — with professional results. CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X3 also introduces several new tools that help design professionals and occasional business users achieve their intended result faster. The new Star, Complex Star, Crop, and Smart Fill tools are sure to save users valuable time. In addition, the enhanced interactive Fit Text to Path tool makes it simple to add text along a curved path — a dream come true for design professionals who frequently create logos. Corel PHOTO-PAINT® X3 provides increased support for spot color channels to make it easier to work with multichannel and multicolor images. Built on the power of Corel® KnockOut, the enhanced Cutout Lab makes the process of cutting out image areas easier than ever before. When applying photo effects, users benefit from the increased application performance that provides faster real-time results. In addition, the new CorelDRAW® Handbook – Insights from the Experts features artwork, helpful advice, and design techniques from professional designers in advertising, printing, sign- making, engraving, and other industries. CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X3 simplifies the design process for projects of any scale, from logo creation and Web graphics to multipage marketing brochures and eye-catching signs. With powerful bitmap-to-vector tracing, helpful new learning tools, and enhanced illustration, page layout, and photo editing features, CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X3 delivers a combination of superior design capabilities, speed, ease of use, and affordability that's unmatched in the graphics software industry.

2 CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite X3 Customer Profiles Design Professionals Design professionals in the advertising and printing industries spend much of their time creating and editing graphics, working with text, and retouching photos. These users frequently work on layout and design projects, such as creating logos and multipage brochures. Other design professionals focus primarily on sign making, screen printing, and engraving, and they may also work on other projects. These production- oriented professionals spend most of their time repurposing and combining content, such as graphic designs, scanned logs, clipart images, and fonts. They pay particular attention to output preparation and optimization of designs. Occasional Business Users Entrepreneurs are often interested in creating marketing materials in-house. Self-taught in graphic arts, they spend most of their time modifying existing designs for reuse, retouching photos and creating ads, flyers, and other marketing collateral. Small businesses may print their work on a desktop printer or send it to a commercial printer. Business users in medium to large enterprises also value this comprehensive graphics suite, which enables them to work with more than 100 file formats and create professional, graphically rich projects — from sales presentations to Web graphics. Teachers and Students Teachers and students at school or at home are looking for creative ways to deliver projects and reports. They use CorelDRAW for school projects and activities, to create special event calendars and training courseware, and to publish newsletters. Reviewer’s Guide [ 3 ]
