    Just wondering what software everybody uses?

    I currently have Adobe Creative Suite 3 "Design Premium" and yes it was expensive! Anybody use anything other than Adobe??

    I'm a diehard Corel user through and through. I only use Photoshop for CMYK conversions.

    Hi Mark

    Welcome to the Forum.

    That is a VERY impressive logo portfolio you have there :icon_notworthy:

    Just out of interest, why Corel and not Illustrator, any particular reason?

    Thanks guys.

    I prefer Corel because it's light-years ahead of the pack. Corel is renowned for innovation with vector (and also sometimes bitmap) programmes - whilst others simply copy.

    Adobe proclaims to be the 'industry standard'. Corel's software is industry-leading! :icon_wink: Says so on the tin! :icon_biggrin:

    CorelDRAW's node editing tools in vector are the stuff of legend too!

    Reasonably priced at £386.58 for the Graphics Suite x4, almost 200 squids cheaper than Illustrator.

    It comes down to what your used to using really. At uni and college it was all Adobe stuff and every studio I've worked in have used Adobe.

    I worked briefly in one place that used Corel and I just couldn't get the hang of it at all, owner didn't have the time for me to sit and learn it so bought a copy of Illustrator for me to use instead. I left 2 weeks later as the guy was an arse. haha

    Like you say Pixels Ink, its what your used to and what does the job for you. Design agencies I've worked for in the past have always used Abode products or Quark so thats what I'm skilled in. I use Adobe CS2, does CS3 warrant the upgrade? Be interested to know your opinons.

    Personally I do think CS3 is worth the upgrade, though I went from CS to CS3. The fact that photoshop now has smart filters is worth it alone!

    I used to use CS3 as my main tool.

    I am new to graphic design after deciding I want a career change (don't get me wrong I've always had a healthy interest in design, it's not like I decided out of thin air!) so am learning things for myself and managed to get the master suite so have a lot to learn. I've never used anything else and when I was doing GCSE Graphics it was all done with pen, paper and scissors (and the odd felt tip pen)!!

    I don't know how I'd get on with any other software...
