Yea, It is good tht there is layer in PS, without layer it will not be interesting.

Without layers a design is not complete. Look at it like onion skin.

Top layer: General background colours and elements

Next layer: Major text and information, etc

I really cannot think of anything that a designer would want to do with corel draw that he can't use photoshop for.

COREL DRAW IS A PAGE LAYOUT TOOL!!!!!!!

I cannot see any improvements in Corel Draw X4. Maybe photopaint, which i have never launched. I have met a lot of foreign designers that really do not use Corel. More of Fireworks and photoshop, which is the SI unit of design software. A verb has even been formed from the awesome software. U hear statements like, "An 8 year old could have easily photoshopped that."

Software this, software that. A lot of people miss the very essense of some software. Corel draw is merely a page layout tool. It is not a fantastic design tool. Although i have seen some good work come out of it. Until there are proper brush tools and layer blending modes in corel draw i wouldnt consider it. Corel photopaint is more like it.

Gimp is very well worth considering. It's because a lot of people are enjoying the benefits of using bootleg software and getting away with it. If clients demanded original software license keys before commissioning jobs, what would you do? Open source has always been the messiah of those that cant afford the original.

@ Smartsoft. As i read your post now it makes me laugh, You mean you are Mr Photoshop, you do the all your ur design on photoshop without touhing any other software. I dont use Corel but Why are you tring to condemn Corel Draw?

@ All. It is good for you to advance in any other software but the main point is that it most ne function and be useful. You cant just learn any new sofware for noting. I am busy now, i will get back to this thread later.
