Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw?

on: August 20, 2006, 12:14:03 am
Is it okay to ask about this? if not..i apologize in advance and close this.

To those who has experience in using them, which is handy/easy to use or has better tools for vector graphics? Are there also any other programs that are better than them?
In any case this might come off topic, I just want to expand my knowledge and have no place to go and ask :(


Thanks in advance :D

I had a computer teacher who always was interested in doing logo and designs all in vectors!
he says that macromedia freehand and Corel draw are the best he ever tried.

macromedia fireworks is pretty good.  Corel draw is also pretty good - but i find it hard to use.

Here's another vote for illustrator. Never tried Freehand tho. But imo Coral draw is ass.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Go for Illustrator, Freehand will no longer be made, so in a year or so, you're working with old software.

I don't know about Corel Draw, never used it.

And don't use Fireworks, that's not even a vector program Feron

Illustrator - whenever you are put up between a decision of an adobe product and something else, simply choose adobe - they rule the world.  And with the merger of Adobe and Macromedia, theres no question about it anymore.
