corel draw has been my graphic go-to since the 1990's

although i don't do nearly as much graphic work as in previous decades, corel does everything i want with ease

It is great for home use!

I have been using CorelDraw since the mid 90's. This is a stripped down version of the professional version, however, it does the trick. Since I am retired, it works very well. I used it to create a calendar and it came out great. Since you cannot return this, I advise you to understand what you are buying. Enjoy!

SoftwareCW Customer
Deceptive Information!

I bought this specifically because "photo editing" was listed in the description. Corel "Photo Paint" is the companion product that is specifically for that, so I expected to get THAT. Didn't. Corel says it's not part of the product. I don't need Corel Draw Essentials. I already have a previous version of it. The "photo editing" part of the product description is deceptive. So, I'm going to have to return the product, reluctantly.
