In keeping with Corels commitment to provide Mac-specific, professional tools for designers, this is the first time Corel has offered the opportunity to purchase both applications separately.
'We know that professional designers require the flexibility to create their own work environment and personally select the tools that best suit their workflow. By offering CorelDRAW 10 and Corel PHOTO-PAINT 10 as standalone applications for the Mac we are tailoring our products for their specific needs,' said Ian LeGrow, executive vice-president of creative products at Corel.
CorelDRAW 10 is a vector illustration and page-layout application that provides a wide range of creation tools, vector and raster image effects, high-end output features, and Web capabilities. Corel PHOTO-PAINT 10, the first professional image-editing application for Mac OS X, offers professional users comprehensive photo-editing, image composition, and painting capabilities. It is compatible with all Adobe Photoshop compatible plug-ins including procreate KPT effects and procreate KnockOut 2.
'As a leading developer of graphic applications for Mac OS X, we are particularly excited to be the first to provide creative users with professional image-editing technology to leverage the strengths of this new operating system. Corel PHOTO-PAINT 10 and Mac OS X are an exciting combination unmatched by any other products or platforms,' added LeGrow.
