Note to editors: There are four photos and a video associated with this press release.
Introducing CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite 2017, the latest version of Corel's flagship graphics software that offers designers a new, hands-on creative experience that's unlike any other vector application. With LiveSketch™, hand-drawn strokes are intelligently interpreted, adjusted, and combined with existing vector curves, making it simple to sketch and draw directly on a pen-enabled device. The industry's most powerful graphics solution built specifically for Windows, CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017 also offers new workflow enhancements, plus support for the latest technologies including advanced stylus and touch-enabled devices, the Microsoft Surface Dial, and Ultra HD 5K monitors.
"Right from the start, vector design software has forced artists to work in a world dominated by mathematics. When you train yourself to think in terms of geometric shapes, polylines, and Bezier curves, the design process can feel removed from where your creativity began - the simple joy of drawing," explains Gérard Métrailler, Vice President of Global Products at Corel. "Taking advantage of the latest advancements in Windows hardware and the power of machine learning, the new LiveSketch tool in CorelDRAW 2017 brings the fun and creative experience of pen and paper to vector illustration for the first time. In this new creative environment, technology in effect, disappears."
The next major release following the introduction of X8, CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017 boosts productivity with customer-requested workflow enhancements and sparks creativity with a focus on rapidly evolving technologies:
Ideal for projects of any size - from logo design, to web graphics, to billboards - CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017 includes:
