I was just wondering what software and programs you would suggest for efficiency and that are user friendly (as much as possible).

CorelDraw is easier to learn, no doubt about it.

Down and Dirty!

Adobe Illustrator and Corel Draw are BOTH EXCELLENT VECTOR PROGRAMS plain and simple!

ADOBE requires a much higher learning curve than does Corel Draw!


Someone at the upper scale of either of these programs will blow your socks off!

There appear to be more plug in programs from manufacturers to use their printers, cutters and sign making software for Corel than for Adobe.

Corel Draw X5 comes in a Suite that includes a very detailed photo program also.

The Corel Suite full retail will generally cost you @ 1/2 to 2/3 the price of the Current Adobe and I don't believe that the Adobe gives you a full Photo program.

Whatever program you decide to get, study it and practice daily and DO NOT GET THE TEACHER OR STUDENT VERSION of EITHER. Almost all of the plug ins for either of these will not work with the Teacher or Student Version!

My personal recommendation is that if you are at the point of asking you would be better off with the Corel as if you look at those that recommend Adobe, they have a vast amount of experience with Adobe and more than likely have some formal Graphic Arts Training or Heavy Computer Training. In no way am I knocking Adobe as I use it along with Corel.
