Pros

This software has the great advantage to be completely free and having the capacity to integrate other free and powerful APIs.
Inkscape surprised me positively for the number of features and more, for being free and for having open source. Creating knots, curves and modifying the lines is super easy and simple to use.
This software is so powerful, it's like a nuclear missile. I love what you can draw with it - literally anything.

Pros

I like how easy it is to use and how my pictures come out. I tend to draw for my stories so it helps that I can visualize it in such a clean and colorful format.
But the more you use it, the more you’ll realize how user friendly it is. I was so fascinated with Corel draw I even enrolled for a comprehensive tutorial.
Great software, I have used this for over 10 years, great with a tablet, great features and easy to learn.

Cons

The only problem I have had with this software is its weakness in exporting formats compatible with Latex.
It's hard for me to find something to dislike about Inkscape. I'd only say that it could use some tweaks in the interface itself, especially in the dark theme.
No option to see colors are print or screen-friendly. Inkscape lags behind premium vector graphic options.

Cons

The Trouble Shooting criteria is worst in CorelDraw, and that is after few hours or some uneven period getting known to the problem nothing going to be fix this issue.
After 4 hours and 5 days with customer service, they tell us that it's a known problem and nothing is being done to fix it. This is by far the worst experience you will have with any software company.
The worst part about CorelDRAW is that you have to do a complete research to start understanding the features and how to use it.

Open Source CorelDraw

Reviewed 5 years ago

I was able to design logos and billboards just fine, after overcoming the changes from CorelDraw, I feel I can do anything on it and is free. Nothing to lose here, try it.

Pros

For a Free software it has a lot of options to do illustrations, very similar to CorelDraw, you will be able to use it, after learning the basics, you can accomplish almost the same things that on CorelDraw.

Cons

Some options are confusing and not the same as CorelDraw, but has a lot of documentation and support from the community so you be able to get the solution to any issue you may encounter.

Inkscape has been my companion for quit some time and its agood replacemnt for CorelDraw and Illustrator for most of my project.

Pros

Community support and availability of tutorials for Inkscape make it the go to application for vector design and the fact that its free and opensource make it the best or student and newbies to getting started. Also support for Windows and GNU Linux make a fine addition.

Cons

Lack of support for most data file format especially proprietary one that are industry standard.

Inkscape, a pleasant surprise.

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall, my experience with inkscape was quite satisfactory. The application is very intuitive and when I need to do something more elaborate, I had no problem finding good documentation on the internet.

Pros

For anyone who needs a professional-quality vector drawing application that is simple to use and doesn't cost a fortune, Inkscape is certainly the solution. A great alternative to CorelDraw, which surprised me. It has a strong internet community with a large team of developers, constantly being updated. It is a free and cross platform software. It has versions for Linux, Windows and Mac.

Cons

For those who already used another vector drawing application like CorelDraw, the lack of some features present in other applications can be noted. It is possible to perform the same tasks you would perform in CorelDraw, but in some cases in an indirect way. For example: There is no feature that makes interactive shading, instead you need to create your own shadow.

I love the fact that, even though it costs you nothing, basically there is no difference between Inkscape and programs like Illustrator or CorelDRAW. Take the time to learn it and you can get a he same high quality results.

Inkscape

Great for vectors and 2D images overall

Reviewed 4 years ago

Great app that helps me a bunch with vectors in general, and quite powerful (specially if combined with GIMP and others).

Pros

First of all, can't beat the price – totally free. It's a great alternative to Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW for most things image drawing and editing. Also, it allows you to open (and edit) Adobe Illustrator and PDF files, which is a plus for a free app like this, and it's got a vast array of features.

Cons

The developers apparently haven't given much thought to UX fundamentals, as the interface is sometimes complex to understand; there are way too many options, so there's some getting used to, but fortunately it's customisable. Also, there are some things that are simply not available, no 3D; no cloud services; some tools work quite different from the way they do in other apps... but overall, and specially when combined with GIMP and some plugins, it gets almost as powerful as the 'fancy' apps out there.

Freely draw your designs

Reviewed 5 years ago

I've been using InkScape for my sole illustration and (vector) design work in the last 8 years. It was slow and buggies at the early development, but it grows quickly as a mature and very useful design graphic software. Since the first day I use InkScape, I NEVER use CorelDRAW again.

Pros

Easy to use, multi-functionality. Easy to convert bitmap images into vector trace. Lightweight to use, will not eat your RAM. FREE AND OPEN ACCESS!

Cons

None! This illustrator software is soo much fun and lightweight to use. Nothing to complain about!

A good and free solution, but complex to work with

Reviewed 3 years ago

This is a full-featured software for designing vector and scalable images. The only thing that is missing is a way to share the work with colleagues in a native way, like Illustrator and its Cloud Storage. This is very similar to CorelDRAW, and you can use it for free, so you save some money in licensing.

Pros

It's open source and it is fully featured for designing graphics and vector images. Also, you can export to multiple formats like SVG or EPS with easiness.

Cons

The learning curve is high, and it doesn't have a native collaborative environment, so you can't share your graphic pieces with your colleagues easily.

The best cost benefit!

Reviewed a year ago

I have used Inskape for many years, as a free option for anyone looking to do more professional work, Inkscape offers a wide range of features and is a great choice for graphic designers, artists, illustrators and other professionals who need to create vector-based images . Being free software, I often use Inkscape for free for personal and commercial use on various platforms such as Windows and Mac.

Pros

What stands out most about Inkscape is that it is easy to use and that it supports various extensions and plugins, allowing the creation of new functionalities and features. For example, the program allows you to import files from other graphics programs, such as Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW. Furthermore, it supports a wide range of file formats including SVG, PDF, EPS, PNG, OpenDocument and many others.

Cons

I have nothing negative to say about the program, as it has always met my needs perfectly.

Inkscape

Very capable, powerful tool for creating vector images. Cross-platform and open source.

Reviewed 3 years ago

Since 2004, I have used Inkscape for creating vector graphics. Inkscape can easily handle small reasonably complex drawings. However, when working on large diagrams, comprised of hundreds of objects and many layers, Inkscape would become less responsive and occasionally crash. For creating highly complex diagrams, I still rely on CorelDraw which is far more robust overall. But I use Inkscape for all simpler diagrams and have watched it transform over the years into an increasingly powerful vector graphics program.

Pros

Cross-platform and open source. This has several big advantages: a) No need to worry about proprietary file formats and vendor-lock because it saves files in the open SVG format. Drawings that you create today will still be easily opened and used 10 years from now in either new versions of Inkscape, or in one of many other applications that can also open SVG files. b) No economic barriers to use-...

Cons

The way Inkscape handles docker panels is somewhat confusing. Dockers are sidebar panels that display information about layers and objects in the drawing. Currently, the user must navigate to the software menu, click on OBJECT and then click on "Object" to turn on the Object docker panel. The same slow procedure must be repeated for Layers: navigate to the software menu, click on LAYER, and then ...

Great entry level vector editing software

Reviewed 3 years ago

This is a good training tool for vector graphics, and has some advantages when simple work is needed.

Pros

I mostly use CorelDraw and Adobe Illustrator, both of which are very full featured, but have very steep learning curves. This is simpler, though of course not as featured. However for someone who is just getting into vector graphics, this an excellent entry point, and is in fact featured enough to do most basic tasks, and some surprisingly complex work , the graphics can be imported into other web and layout programs. For the price (FREE!) this is a no brainer to have, I'd recommend using this before buying commercial products to give you a feel for vector work, which differs from bitmap editing.

Cons

Missing some advanced editing and layout features. Can't directly drag files into Corel and Illustrator

Cons

CorelDRAW

Good to design basic things

Reviewed 5 years ago

Great tool for new and intermediate Graphic Designers, great for designing logos and small business graphic design, but with alternatives so similar like Inkscape that are free and open source and really similar, I'll advise you to try that first an if you need more than Inkscape you can consider CorelDraw, If you require advanced illustration features go with Adobe.

Pros

I feel more free to do my designs on CorelDraw since it doesn't correct me like illustrator does, runs well on older machines, and you can do great designs from logos to publications, but Adobe tools are far superior.

Cons

The UI is old and clunky, but usable, the activation part was a mess to do.

CorelDraw Review

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

The product is quite easy to use for anyone who has used a vector editing suite of software before. Even new users can quickly grasp the essentials and go from there to creating really great vector images. The software can be used to lay out an entire book or magazine, since it allows the user to create multiple pages within a single file. A bit of input from a printing house and the user can quite easily lay out a magazine or book.

Cons

The price is really prohibitive. With free alternatives like Inkscape and LibreOffice Draw now available, perhaps Corel can think of a "pay as you go" model, especially since cloud computing is becoming increasingly popular.

So far CorelDraw seems to be the best vector software for generating laser cutting files; Corel files seem to translate to the laser cutters with fewer issues than from illustrator.

Cons

CorelDraw loses out on functionality to other vector drawing softwares such as illustrator and inkscape. Not only are functions more limited but the user interface is clunkier and software is slower.

Good Software but high priced

Reviewed 4 years ago

I do like the creativity available with Corel Draw once you get it working with Photo Paint etc. However, Inkscape, which is free, can come close in many categories so Corel really need to introduce better or legacy pricing.

Pros

Corel Draw has lots of features but they like to part them out so it makes it quite expensive to own everything. Many updates have little value even after several years

Cons

Price for sure. Otherwise, I would have thought that by now Corel would have figured out an easier way to get the initial set up the way you want it as opposed to the many drop downs and subcategories that need to get navigated through.

CorelDRAW

An Old Powerful Classic

Reviewed 7 months ago

CorelDraw has always been a great ally. We used it from 2012 when our company used to produce a free magazine. Nowadays, each time we need to go in the way of fast vector design we go along Corel and Inkscape.

Pros

CorelDRAW is a classic design tool used by many years along with freehand. It has always been a handy tool to create printed material given the strong abilities to provide the best of both worlds, InDesign and Illustrator. The user interface is simple to use, the price of the license is better than the adobe counterparts, and the out coming designs can be produced on a wide arrange of popular formats including Ai and EPS, which makes it compatible with the adobe pieces of software.

Cons

It does not run as smooth as Inkscape by instances, and no many people know how to use it in comparison with the adobe pieces of software, then it might be a little more difficult to learn by the base of video tutorials.

CorelDRAW

Great for old-school / beginner vector illustrators, if it wasn't for the price

Reviewed 6 years ago

A great old-school and reliable vector-graphics tool, but too pricey for what it offers.

Pros

It has a very old-school user interface, while also being very simple learn and grasp. It has a great variety of features -- while not as many as Adobe Illustrator or as versatile as Affinity Designer -- are still plenty in general to make good art and even work with raster images. It also has a good stylus support, making it great for complex vector illustrations. And its also very stable and reliable.

Cons

Its old-school nature of user experience, however, means some of its features are kind of unintuitive to use for modern vector-handling, and also making it sometimes slow to work with. Since it is primarily confined to the Windows ecosystem also makes it difficult to work with files on another operating system unless you export it to another open standard for vectors. On top of that, the full price is far too much, considering Inkscape, being free, has a similar interface and can practically do 70% of what Corel can do. The subscription fee, while helpful, also isn't appealing, since professional illustrators would instead opt to get Affinity Designer instead.

CorelDRAW

Fantastic to use with a Wacom tablet or iPad

Reviewed 5 years ago

I was first introduced to this in grad school. I went to an art school and I got a free copy there. After a few years when that software was a bit outdated, I got the latest one. I used some other products and I'll be honest there's not a lot of variation in what this can do for me, but I find this one the easiest to use and for me that makes all the difference. I do a lot of pen and ink stuff, then I use Photoshop for revisions, edits and tweaks; and I'll use CorelDRAW for stylistic tweaks --you know, like vector something.

Pros

A lot of great features and tools. One reason I tend to go back to this product a lot is because of the different pen tips. I tend to use this with other products like Photoshop, Illustrator and so on, but with that said, I don't use this to it's full capacity. I'm a pen and ink artist, but I do use CorelDRAW for some digital additions or to experiment and for touch ups. I purchased this a while back, but I was able to download this on all my devices and that was great so now I can use it on any device. Definitely my Mac and PC have the most use with this but I use it for light sketches on my iPad too. There's a lot of advanced features here, but I haven't used it extensively. I like that there's a subscription service and a one time purchase too.

Cons

I don't think there's really any cons. This can be expensive for some. But this is very high quality stuff. I also use Adobe Illustrator and I'd put the two on par. I'd only maybe prefer Illustrator because it's a bit easier for me to work with both Illustrator and Photoshop, but it's very easy to move vector images around here. Inkscape is a free vector imaging program which works incredibly well. I'd honestly suggest tinkering with that if you are just dabbling, but if not, I think this is a decent purchase with no real cons. Of course, this is coming from a person who uses this product a lot but not to its full potential.
