With tons of editing tools available out there (though nothing beats Photoshop) available like CorelDraw, Photoshop, Illustrator etc., it has become necessary to understand which tool best fits your requirement. But, the question is which one is better for what?

Corel-Draw-vs-Adobe-Photoshop

The answer is

It depends on the project you are working on. Both Photoshop and CorelDraw have their own pros and cons. It’s only up to you how you are going to use them and what output you want.

However here are some points given which distinguish them. It will tell you when to use Coreldraw or Photoshop:

  • CorelDraw

CorelDraw is a vector-based graphics software. It uses math’s expressions to create vector art.

Most of the logos and posters or we can say that images that you have to print are created in CorelDraw.

What makes CorelDraw better than Photoshop?

  1. It enables you to create multiple pages in a single file unlike Photoshop, in which you can make only one page.
  2. When images are scaled, it doesn’t lose its quality or look blurry.
  3. You can insert BAR-CODE when you are making product packaging, but, in Photoshop you can’t.
  4. If you want the standard design in multiple pages, Master page layout option is there.
  5. No need to create customize the layout for basic needs like a business card or envelope. CorelDraw provides predefined layouts for such use.

Photoshop is raster based graphics software developed and published by Adobe. It outputs images in pixels.

It is mainly used to create and edit images for web, presentations etc.

What makes Photoshop better than CorelDraw?

  1. It allows custom selection in an image, that CorelDraw doesn’t.
  2. All the creative effects were done in Photoshop rather than CorelDraw.
  3. It’s easy to do masking.
  4. It allows you to work with multiple layers and handle each layer independently.
  5. It has advanced features for making 3D graphics arts.
