I have been hearing lot people/users of both graphic software comparing both software,
hearing stuff like “Photoshop has great production than CorelDraw” vice versa
If by any chance you found yourself on the page and does not know the functions of the software mention above, I will take a moment to briefly give a succinct function of both software.
They are software created for the purpose of graphics design, virtually all the design you see around you on daily basis are designed with these software. This is not tell you that there are no other graphical software but these are the major ones in the graphics industry
On my own perspective, I don’t think both applications are worth comparing because they are not the same, am going to highlight some differences in both applications shortly, but I’d love to cheap in a point, graphical software
There are two types of graphics which are raster and vector graphics,
raster graphics or bitmap image is a dot matrix data structure, representing a generally rectangular grid of pixels, or points of color, viewable via a monitor, paper, or other display medium. Raster images are stored in image files with varying formats.
Vector graphics is the creation of digital images through a sequence of commands or mathematical statements that place lines and shapes in a given two-dimensional or three-dimensional space. In physics, a vector is a representation of both a quantity and a direction at the same time.
Coreldraw graphical software it uses mathematics to generate graphics, it is mostly use for creating logos and prints at different sizes, because of it never losses quality when scaled way up, since it doesn’t make use of resolution.
Note: adobe has a very similar application which performs the same task, as a matter is one of the leading industry standard, it’s called adobe illustrator
Photoshop is a raster based graphical software, it is designed for the purpose of processing images, photo editing and manipulation. It has lot of tools and filter to create awesome images. that’s why it is the industry standard for raster images. But the major drawback is that it losses quality gradually when scaled up, it’s best to work with higher resolution in order to avoid your images losing quality.
Some people prefer to use just one of them, but it’s best to use both software together, am also a graphic designer and i use both of them. you might want to create a logo, watermarks and other stuffs like that it’s best you use illustrator or coreldraw, and then use Photoshop to edit your photos, you might even edit stuffs on Photoshop and move to illustrator or coreldraw to insert text for best output.
