2012 brought the world a new version of our industry-leading design software - CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6.
The package still contained a huge number of tutorials and learning assets for new users, but one significant change from previous versions was a clear focus on its core offerings. So instead of a huge bundle of applications, we focused on honing Corel PHOTO-PAINT, Corel CONNECT, and Corel DRAW to be the best they could possibly be.
CorelDRAW X6 was built to handle larger and more processing-intensive files, so 64-bit and multi-core support sped up designers’ workflows. Styles let designers create a consistent appearance across all of their assets, whether creating multiple drawings, documents, and text.
Users of Corel PHOTO-PAINT were given the Smart Carver tool which let them cut out unwanted objects seamlessly from photographs. Designers using CorelDRAW X6 were gifted the ability to Smear, Twirl, Attract, and Repel - even more creative options for refining vector files.
Creating layouts was at the heart of the functionality of CorelDRAW X6. With support for OpenType and enhanced script support for working with foreign language text, the software made it easier to layout a huge range of projects. A new Placeholder Text let users mock up a page layout so designers never lost sight of the bigger picture.
Over 100 popular file outputs were available in the Export Dialog box, along with customizable color profiles, file types and file sizes. So whether designers were working in print or online, there was an option for every situation.
