PhD Graphics training manual – Corel Draw for posters Biology Graphics Office, 2006 – R:/clients/department training manuals/ – 2 – Software background – Corel Draw Corel Draw has been on the market since 1989 and is an industry leader in PC graphics and illustration. Corel Draw is part of a Graphics Suite: Corel DRAW® for vector illustration and page layout; Corel PHOTO-PAINT® for professional digital imaging. These two software applications have been available on the University of York’s network for use by staff and students for many years and prove to be professional creation tools for design jobs from basic illustration to high quality Desktop publishing. NOTE – This booklet focuses on using Corel Draw to produce large scale posters . Corel Draw is a ‘vector’ based drawing package, as apposed to a ‘bitmap’ based package. Vector drawing packages work with mathematical precision, using coordinates and equations to plot a diagram, create and layer shapes, and colour and pattern shapes. The benefit of this approach is that when printing a vector document, the print image is always sharp. If you need to scale the print up or down this is not a problem as it will still print as a sharp image. This is a perfect tool for draw
