It’s been an exciting time for our team as we’ve recently released the new CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017! If you haven’t yet downloaded the free trial, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to introduce you to what’s new. We think you’re going to be impressed!
CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017 offers you support for the latest technologies including advanced stylus and touch-enabled devices, the Microsoft Surface Dial, and Ultra HD 5K monitors. We’ve also responded to our users’ requests to make it simple to bring back your X6, X7 and X8 workspaces. And we’ve made dramatic changes to node editing, so it’s easier than ever for you to work with and edit your designs.
But beyond these updates, we’re particularly excited to introduce you to LiveSketch, the industry’s first drawing tool that’s powered by artificial intelligence. LiveSketch interprets your hand-drawn strokes and allows you to transform the creativity of free-form sketching into precise vector curves. Designed for use with a pen, but also compatible with your mouse, LiveSketch offers an enjoyable and natural drawing experience that brings a new, tactile dimension to a vector-based environment. Shapes now respond to you in ways that were never possible before. Almost like clay, you can now create vectors that are malleable and organic.
We know you’ve trained yourself to think of your designs in terms of math – geometric shapes, polylines and Bezier curves. And while these are the tools of your trade, we also know that many of you still choose to start your designs on paper and then recreate them in CorelDRAW. As powerful vector graphics are, most of us still form our ideas and connect with our creativity by simply picking up a pen and sketching it out. We understand that you can never underestimate the power of a doodle. Give LiveSketch a try and we bet you’ve never experienced a more powerful and natural way of working with vector graphics. This is a new environment where technology, in effect, disappears. Nothing gets between you and your creativity.
CreativeBloq also took a look the power of LiveSketch in its article, “This intelligent drawing tool will change the way designers work.” We invite you to check it out!
On behalf of everyone here on the Corel team, we can’t wait to hear your reactions to our innovative new suite and see the incredible designs you create with LiveSketch. We hope you’ll visit our site to download our free 15-day trial and take a deeper dive into everything that’s new in CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017.
Thank you and happy CorelDRAW-ing!
