CorelDraw is software created by Corel Corporation, and it is used for vector graphic editing and design. Launched in January 1989, CorelDraw was the first graphics design software for the Windows operating system.
With CorelDraw, users can add special effects to images, alter their contrast and color and manage multipage documents. The software can help users develop anything from business cards to invitations.
The first CorelDraw version was designed for the Windows 2.1 platform. As of March 2014, the Corel Corporation has since released 17 CorelDraw versions, with the version X7 released in March 27, 2014. Most CorelDraw versions were designed for the Windows platform. There was a time when a CorelDraw for the Mac platform was designed, but the project was eventually scrapped because of poor sales. CorelDraw X7 is compatible with Windows versions 7 and 8.
