Apply envelopes to bitmaps
Shape a bitmap interactively by placing it in an envelope and dragging its nodes. Quickly and seamlessly blend a bitmap into an illustration by using envelope presets or crafting a custom envelope from scratch.


NEW! Adjust photo perspective interactively

Use the interactive Perspective Correction tool to adjust the perspective of buildings, landmarks, or objects in photos. Simply line up the four corner points with a shape that should be rectangular to adjust the entire shot.


NEW! Publish to WordPress
Send your work directly to a WordPress media library from within the application. This new functionality lets you convert selected objects or an entire project to a JPEG, GIF, or PNG file and then upload to a WordPress account.



NEW! Touch friendly UI workspace
Create quick adjustments using touch or a stylus. The Touch workspace maximises the size of your drawing window by displaying only the tools and commands used most often, plus you can pan and zoom with a single gesture.


NEW! Straighten photos interactively
Rotate crooked images by interactively aligning a straightening bar to an element in the photo or specifying an angle of rotation. All controls are easily accessible on screen or on the property bar for perfect results in minutes.



NEW! Align and distribute nodes
Align and distribute nodes using the bounding box of a selection, the page edge or center, the closest grid line, or a specified point. Distributing nodes is just as easy, adding equal spacing between them horizontally or vertically.


NEW! Add Perspective effect
Quickly create the illusion of distance and depth by applying perspective to bitmaps, vector objects or both directly in the drawing window. It’s an ingenious tool to showcase artwork in real world scenarios.


NEW! Corner control in dashed lines and outlines
Gain more control over the appearance of corners in objects, text, and symbols that use dashed lines in CorelDRAW 2018. In addition to the existing default setting, you can choose from two new options to create perfectly designed and defined corners.


Apply and manage fills and transparencies

Enjoy the totally redesigned Fill and Transparency pickers that will help increase your productivity and deliver improved performance when working with and managing fills and transparencies in CorelDRAW and Corel PHOTO-PAINT.

Workspace customisation
Adapt and customise your design space to match your workflow needs. Seamlessly import CorelDRAW and Corel PHOTO-PAINT workspaces that were created in previous versions of CorelDRAW, or use predefined workspaces to keep industry-specific tools organised and accessible.

Fully customisable interface
Find everything where you need it, when you need it. Choose between Lite or the Default workspace to get started, then use the quick customise feature to tailor your toolbox and property bars to suit your needs.

Built-in content organiser
Find content quickly using Corel CONNECT, a built-in search tool that lets you locate, organise and group content by type or project. Sync your trays with Microsoft OneDrive to maintain access to the latest versions of projects from other computers.

Royalty-free, quality content
Keep designs fresh with more than 1,300 royalty-free clipart and digital images, 100 high-resolution photos, 125 fonts, 75 photo frames, 100 fills and 100 professionally designed templates, including certificates, ads, business cards, letterhead, flyers, posters and more.

Easy bitmap-to-vector tracing
Save precious time while converting bitmap images into vectors. The built-in Corel® PowerTRACE™ engine provides the best tracing results yet and turns the most demanding bitmap images into high-quality vector objects.

Precise layout and drawing tools
Make sure every element on the page is in the right place. The Alignment Guides help you position objects quickly, and the Outline Position options let you pick whether an outline is positioned inside the object, outside the object, or both.

Creative vector tools
Add creative effects to your vector artwork. Four shaping tools—Smear, Twirl, Attract and Repel—let you refine your vector objects by pushing, pulling, smudging, making indents and more.

Special effects and advanced photo editing
Explore special effects, including four pressure-sensitive Liquid tools (Smear, Attract, Repel and Twirl), and camera effects (Bokeh blur, Colorize, Sepia toning and Time Machine), to create unique images in Corel® PHOTO-PAINT™ Home & Student 2018. RAW file support for over 300 types of cameras gives you even more ways to enrich your images.

Healing Clone tool
Improve your favourite photos with powerful tools to correct and edit in a variety of ways. Try the Healing Clone tool to remove imperfections by blending them with surrounding colours and textures.

Web graphics tools
Develop captivating web content and graphics with a collection of web graphics tools. See exactly how your content will display online, and use the Export Dialog box to compare file formats before export.

Copy Curve Segments
Copy, paste, or duplicate pieces of existing curves with the Copy Curve Segments feature that allows you to reuse curve segments in your projects.

Advanced OpenType support
Create beautiful text with advanced OpenType typography features, such as ligatures, ornaments, small caps, swash variants and more. Enjoy comprehensive language support that allows you to customise characters to suit the language you’re working with.

Complex script support
Working with Asian and Middle Eastern languages is easy, thanks to key features in CorelDRAW that ensure proper typesetting. Complex script support acts the same way as OpenType fonts, modifying characters as you type to deliver contextual accuracy.
