CorelDraw Graphics Suite 2020 has debuted with a number of updates to accelerate the creation of complex projects and graphics.
“We’ve leveraged artificial intelligence across the suite to make the biggest impact on your professional graphics workflow,” said John Falsetto, senior director of products, CorelDraw and Productivity.
Package highlights include:
- Easily share files for collaborative review and approval: CorelDraw.app can now serve as the central hub to share CorelDraw (CDR) files with clients and contributors.
- Simple Sign In: Collaborators can access shared design files and make suggestions and remarks in CorelDraw.app by signing in as a guest or with a Corel customer account in the web browser, on any device
- Comment and Annotate: Keeps everyone on the same page by viewing, responding to, and resolving feedback with the new Comments docker / inspector.
- Work with variable fonts: Support for OpenType variable fonts makes it easier to manipulate text appearance and achieve various looks all from a single font.
- Image upsampling and artifact removal: Enlarge images with AI-based upsampling options for results with clean edges, sharpness, and fine details.
- Redesigned PowerTrace: Uses AI-assisted image-optimisation technology to improve the quality of a bitmap as it’s being traced
- New Art Style effects: When working in CorelDraw and Corel Photo-Paint you can choose from AI presets to produce a stylised version of an image or object.
- Enhanced Masks in Corel Photo-Paint: The Mask Transform tool now enables transformations to be applied to pixels within a mask.
- Inner Shadow tool: Apply inner shadows to design elements to give them 3D depth. It lets users simulate light falling on an object and then fine-tune the inner shadow
- Bitmap effect lens: Position bitmap effects with precision by moving or manipulating the lens and apply a feather effect to seamlessly blend vector and bitmap objects into an existing design.
- Non-destructive effects in Corel Photo-Paint: The new Effects docker / inspector makes it easy to apply, modify, and experiment with effects.
- Brush performance in Corel Photo-Paint: The Brush tool, Healing Clone, and Eraser are now more fluid, especially when using larger nib sizes
