Mark Abdelnour

Welcome to CorelDRAW X3

- Hello. My name is Mark Abledore. And I'm pleased and privileged to deliver these videos and be your guide through this Corel Graphics Suite X3 video series. I worked at Corel for over ten years in various training and support roles, and CorelDRAW has always played a part in my various jobs. I'd like to begin this video presentation by introducing you to the starring modules in this suite of products. First and foremost, CorelDRAW X3, a graphics design application.

Corel PhotoPaint X3, a professional image editing application. Corel PowerTrace, a bitmap to vector conversion tool. And last but not least, Corel Capture, a one click screen capture utility program. So beginning users want to learn the essentials. So this title will begin by covering the basics, like introductions to the user interface, getting the help you need, and drawing shapes. It continues by moving through shaping objects, working with effects and interactive tools, and working with text.

Followed by more advanced tools, like working with layers, importing and exporting files, and printing and publishing your work. If you are a premium subscriber to the online training library, or purchased the CD version of this title, you'll have access to the exercise files and you can work along with me. So I hope you enjoy learning as much as I enjoyed working on this title. So if you're ready, let's get started.
