Corel creates products frequently considered as strong alternatives to Adobe and Microsoft. Once a top choice for page layout, Corel Ventura — version 10 was released in 2002 — is not currently a frontrunner in the Corel product line and has been replaced by CorelDRAW, which offers many of the same features as Ventura. CorelDRAW, much like Adobe Illustrator, is often used for graphics-intensive page layout tasks. CorelDRAW Graphics Suite CorelDRAW Graphics Suite is Corel's answer to Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. The suite includes: Corel After Shot 3 HDR, for RAW photo editingCorel CAPTURE, for screen capturesCorel CONNECT, for finding additional contentCorelDRAW, for vector drawing and page layoutCorel Font Manager, for handling large numbers of fontsCorel PHOTO-PAINT, for image editingCorel PowerTRACE, for bitmap-to-vector tracing Supporting the design tools, the suite offers access to additional content, which includes 10,000 clip art and digital images, 1,000 fonts (TrueType and OpenType), 2,000 hi-res photos, frames, and more. Corel PaintShop Pro Formerly Jasc Paint Shop Pro, an extremely popular low-cost alternative to Photoshop, Corel has added a lot of digital photography features to the original package. In addition to photo editing and enhancing, PaintShop Pro also includes creative and simple graphic design tools, artistic text, and photo editing tools. Technical Graphics Software Corel offers software geared more toward technical projects as well.

Many other Corel products, including Corel PaintShop, Corel WordPerfect Office, and CorelDRAW Technical Suite, are also offered in trial editions. Corel Ventura 10 Corel Ventura 10 was the last version of this page design software, published in 2002. Now it has been rolled into CorelDRAW, which has incorporated many of its tools and features. Corel Ventura 10 excelled at long document publishing. XML import, publish to PDF, table tags, prepress/preflight options, and bitmap effects were some of the enhancements to the software. Version 10 improved the software's compatibility with both Adobe and Corel's Graphics programs. Headquarters Corel Corporation is headquartered in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, but has offices worldwide.
