Pros / Regardless of its advanced tools, features and capabilities, this software is easy to learn and use.

Cons / The software lacks some photo effects, such as color correction, HDR imaging and panorama merging.

 Verdict / Corel’s graphic design software has a wide selection of both illustration tools and image editing features. While it lacks a few features that help you design more efficiently, the software is compatible with more file types than any other graphic program.
