Whether you're an aspiring or experienced artist, this course provides detailed coverage of CorelDRAW, the flagship vector-based illustration and layout application. Author Scott Georgeson, the official creator of video training for CorelDRAW X4, X5, and X6, helps you get up to speed with the basics of vector drawing. Scott demonstrates how to use objects, layers, and pages to organize documents effectively and he discusses working with color, Artistic Text, drawing tools, and special effects. The course also covers how to align and group objects to lay them out more effectively and how to dictate the layering of objects with the Weld, Trim, and Intersect commands.

Scott Georgeson is the Aussie voice of the popular Click N Learn series of CorelDRAW and Corel PHOTO-PAINT training. His WorkPlace Ready Training course for X3 brings Scott's total number of CorelDRAW training CDs to 35. Scott began his 18-year journey with CorelDRAW in the sign industry and was one of the first in Australia to ever operate a sign-cutting plotter. He became a self-inspired trainer of CorelDRAW due to the enormous number of calls he received about sign cutting.
