What is a .CDR File?

A CDR file is a vector graphics file that stores a digital image encoded and compressed to be opened and manipulated by a vector editing software program. Files saved with the CDR extension are designated for use with CorelDRAW products as well as other Corel applications.


How do I open a CDR file?

If you already have a copy of CorelDRAW installed, you can simply double-click the file or drag it into an open instance of CorelDRAW or compatible Corel product.

If you haven't yet installed CorelDRAW, you may do so using the download link above and following the download instructions.

CorelDRAW is the best application to open your CDR format file and will minimize any loss of information or image quality associated with file conversion in other platforms. Avoid converting CDR to jpg, pdf, or other file formats as quality may be lost in the conversion process.
