CorelDRAW 2021

Corel has issued CorelDRAW 2021, a major upgrade for the vector illustration app with new collaboration features, a more flexible design space that enables you to work more efficiently, and advanced illustration features. The release introduces a new dashboard that acts as a collaboration hub containing all design files in the cloud. Reviewers can now comment on and annotate a document in the app with instant feedback appearing in the designer’s working file.

In addition to offering native support for M1-based Macs, CorelDRAW 2021 also adds a multipage view, brings a new Pages docker/inspector with a thumbnail grid view, enables you to create a customized list of assets to export with one click, and adds a new perspective drawing feature. It also improves the management of custom guidelines; adds the Replace Colors feature to make targeted edits to hue, saturation, and lightness; and adds support for High Efficiency Image File Format (HEIF) image files.

Available for macOS 10.15 Catalina and later, CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2021 is priced at $499 as a one-time purchase (with no upgrade pricing) or $249 for an annual subscription. CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2021 includes Corel PHOTO-PAINT, access to the browser-based, for iPad, Corel Font Manager, AfterShot 3 HDR, and over 7000 creative assets. The standalone CorelDRAW app is available from the Mac App Store for a $34.99 monthly or $249.99 annual subscription after a 1-week free trial. ($249.99 annual subscription, 2 MB, macOS 10.12+)

  1. For US$11 more per month I get the entire Adobe suite of apps (over 20) that includes iOS apps and a massive amount of daily live instruction classes on Behance/Youtube, so I think their pricing structure seems optimistic.
