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.

  • Q:

    What is "one-point perspective"?

    A:

    A one-point perspective is a type of perspective drawing in which all the lines in the drawing converge at one specific point, called the vanishing point. The one-point perspective is used to provide a sense of depth to a drawing, as images in the foreground are bigger and appear to be closer than the smaller images in the background.

  • Q:

    How do you draw with three-point perspective?

    A:

    To draw with three-point perspective, use three vanishing points and two sets of lines to draw horizontals that move away from the artist in each direction. The structure depicted must become narrower near the height of the structure, while the edges at the farthest point of the structure must appear smaller. The edge of the structure nearest to the viewer must also appear to be the tallest.
