    How do you compare Photoshop 6 with Corel Draw 10? I use Windows XP on Dell
    Pentium 3 system.

    I am making some color graphic pictures such as American flags with overlay
    patterns. I also will be making some color graphic decals and labels and
    logos. I know how to use Photoshop 6 better than Corel Draw. Should I learn
    Corel Draw 10 to do this task?

    Thank you.

    Photoshop deals primarily with RASTER images ie photographic type images
    Coral deals primarily with VECTOR images ie flat areas of colour but both
    programs can do both it's a matter of how much time you have to learn how
    to use them, Both have a high leasrning curves and take some time to
    master.

    For drawing typical color graphic labels with logos and titles, is there
    anything Corel Draw can do that Photoshop cannot do well? Thanks.

    That's like saying "Can you help me compare a hacksaw to a wrench?" You
    are comparing two completely different kinds of tools that are used for
    doing entirely different kinds of tasks.

    Photoshop is an image editor; it works with images that are made up of
    pixels. CorelDRAW is a vector drawing program; it works with images made
    up of mathematical lines.

    Everything. Because you should be using vector graphics for which
    Corel Draw is designed, not raster graphics for which Photoshop is
    designed.

  8. Adobe published a book called 'Classroom in a Book'. Just have a look at the
    latter half of that and it will take you in to Vector Shapes and clipping paths.
    I certainly have enough to learn and keep up to date with Photoshop.

    Yes, Photoshop has some limited vector capability. It is, however,
    nothing like Illustrator or CorelDRAW, and is not a substitute for those
    programs.

    Photoshop works primarily in raster (pixel). Even with vector shapes,
    the fill is still treated as raster.

    Making logos. Making linework. Making labels.

    Can you please tell me what I can do using vector graphic?
    I know how to edit pictures using Photoshop. But have no idea what vector
    graphic can do? I have tried Corel Draw 10 to edit pictures and starting to
    learn editing layers. However, I have lot more difficulties learning Corel
    Draw compare to Photoshop.

    "Vector" graphics are graphics made up of mathematical descriptions of
    shapes and lines.

    Examples of vector graphics include logos, linework, fonts, and so
    forth. A vector graphic can be scaled to absolutely any size, from
    postage stamp to billboard, with zero loss of quality, and will always
    print razor-sharp and smooth at any size.

    You can not use a vector program to edit a photograph, such as a scanned
    image or a digital camera shot. These programs are used to create and
    edit line art and logos, that sort of thing.

    Hi Adam,

    It's just a thought, and without wanting to sound patronising, but as part
    of the whole package called 'Corel Draw', there is an image editing
    module/program called 'Photo-Paint'. This program, with it's slightly
    misleading name(!), is actually an image/pixel/raster editing program, which
    although not exactly the same, is nevertheless the same 'type' of program
    as, Adobe Photoshop.

    I just wondered reading your posts if you were mistakingly quoting the name
    of the whole package (Corel Draw), rather than the program you really meant
    (Photo-Paint)?

    Hopefully this post might be slightly more help to you than dictionary
    definitions, hammers and wrenches!

    Best wishes Darrell Burnett.
