    Default Opinions on new Corel X6

    Is Corel X6 worth $159 upgrade when Iím happy with Xara for most things. I also use AdobeCS3, but no where near as much as I used to. What I do like about Corel is the fonts and clipart packages along with the Font Navigator. The only thing I have found worthwhile in the main program is the tracing function. However, I have not had time to use it in depth. As I like Photoshop I have not bothered looking at Corel Photopaint. Every program has itís own merits, but I would be interested in the opinions of others on this issue

    Hi Phil I have moved your post to the Corel forum.

    I have not upgraded from Corel Draw X4. The upgrade email came in a few days ago but I did not see anything that made the upgrade attractive for me.

    I downloaded the trial and I have to say that it is actually really good, I skipped x5 so have not used alot of the features in this compared to x4, for me as a commercial printer I have to say that the colour management is on a par now with illustrator cs5, the colours now print off our presses as they are meant to. We use both illustrator and x4 here (I personally prefer corel since I have around 20 years of it's use under the belt) and the only thing that let coreldraw down in the past was the colour management. Will be upgrading very soon.

    I have used Corel Draw for their tracing also. the conveince of having twain support in a vector program is important to me. Corel Draw B-spline tool really is great.
