5 out of 5 eggsEverything that most people will need

Pros: This is *almost* the full version and for the price, yo can't beat it. You don't get VBA scripting or the more advanced color management, but most of you don't know what these features are or why you would need them. Those who do, probably already have the full version.

Cons: they should have been up-front about the missing features. Nowhere do they tell you that you are not getting the full version.

Other Thoughts: I am reviewing corelDRAW only. I chose to not install their photo program - I already have the Adobe programs for raster files.

I have been using corelDRAW as a graphic designer for over 10 years. The learning curve is much easier than Illustrator, and it's GUI is more productive. I use both corelDRAW and Illustrator every day, and both programs have their own strong points that you wish the other program had. Between the two programs, you can open or import almost any file that your customer might send you.

Previous versions of corelDRAW were prone to constant crashes, but version 15 (X5) is very stable.

If you are new to this type of thing, you will need to spend some time learning how everything works. This is a very powerful program that gives you total control over every aspect of what you are doing. So there are lots of buttons and menus, etc. and it will take awhile to figure it out. This is not a negative... if you are happy creating *artwork* in MS Word, then corelDRAW is not for you, and the problem is *you* - not corelDRAW.

For those who don't know about the VBA scripting (which is not included in this version), it is MOL Microsoft's Visual Basic 6. Corel exposes the program's Object Model so you can manipulate or automate anything that corelDRAW does. I have written scripts that import customer's variable data from Excel, postion and format the data where and how I want it, and then return data back into Excel.

Imagine that your customer sends you a spreadsheet with 2000 rows of data that need to be placed on labels. A VBA script can handle it in a few minutes. Or you could copy/paste and it will take much longer, and you'll probably make some mistakes. This capability justifies buying the full version, if this is what you do for a living. If this isn't what you do for a living, you absolutely do not need it.

Bottom line - this home and student version is a pro art program, and has everything you need to create or work with professional art files.
