USER REVIEWS

One of the best web multimedia and graphics application to be released by far

I work with websites and multimedia applications on a daily basis and there are tons of software available in the market today capable of accomplishing a myriad of multimedia graphics and animation tasks for both offline and online purposes. Many of these software area available as a single, standalone application purchase. One of the basic problems I encounter with this setup is the inter-workability and compatibility of working files across different software platforms. This meant that there are some files that are supported in one program but completely useless to work with on another. So I started looking around for a multimedia graphics software suite of applications – a group of programs that will let me work almost seamlessly across different platforms. And that's how I came across CorelDRAW Premium Suite X5.

CorelDRAW Premium Suite X5 is a software suite of different Corel products specially designed for interactive multimedia, web graphics and design, as well as animated multimedia graphics for offline commercial purposes. The suite contains software that I use for editing and manipulating images and graphics. Conceptualizing and creating web pages is done through a web development application while developing flash animation is done through a vector animation software. I have to admit that I don’t use all the software in the package on a regular basis but I definitely can imagine that I will have uses for all the software eventually.

Overall, CorelDRAW Premium Suite X5 is a great software suite for multimedia graphics artists, web designers, flash animators and basically anyone who works with multimedia files and web design.

Pros

  • Perfect mashup of software applications for multimedia graphics and web design
  • Ensures inter-operability of files across different related software

Cons

  • For a complete software package, there is no disadvantage that I can think of
