This techniques book shows beginning and intermediate users how to use CorelDRAW 7 and 8 and the companion product, Corel Photo-Paint, to produce sophisticated artwork. Although the final images are far from simple, the book makes them accessible with its large full-color screen shots and clear instructions. You first learn illustration techniques, while creating artwork such as a glass of wine in CorelDRAW or a logo in Corel Photo-Paint. Next the book teaches design techniques, showing you how to build a brochure with original type treatment in CorelDRAW, and create special text effects and simulate the appearance of stained glass, gold, and chrome in Corel Photo-Paint. Finally, you learn techniques that work in both CorelDRAW and Corel Photo-Paint. You create cutout shapes, shadows, and embossed images in both packages. Overall, this book's straightforward guidance will help you move beyond dabbling in CorelDRAW to using the software for producing real artwork. --Kathleen Caster
