Hi Sonja, The high standard for graphic programs is Adobe. They produce a
program called Illustrator among many other graphics products for graphic
arts professionals and for the average user. Illustrator 6 is the latest
version (for Mac anyway). I don’t know much about Corel Draw because I
haven’t used it, but the reviews I’ve read Only give it two stars out of a
possible five and say the drawing program is lacking. I would buy
Illustrator (I did) or possibly FreeHand which also has a good reputation.
These are both vector-based drawing programs. If you want to get further
into graphic arts you would need Adobe Photoshop also which is a painting
and photo correction program. Also for page layout you would need Adobe
PageMaker or Quark XPress. The last two are very expensive, but they are
industry standards. Well, I’m sure I’ve given you and every one else more
than you wanted to know, but I had to comment, especially after every one
was talking about Corel Draw and I didn’t want any one to buy an inferior
product. These are not cheap but if you want to also do your own promotion
and advertising, labels, etc. they are very useful.
