NEW CorelDRAW 2019 for MAC and PC. For MAC people!

For a very long time now, we talk 20 or maybe even 30 years, and since the Mac version 11.0 in 2002, CorelDRAW and Mac users have longed for a proper Mac version for CorelDRAW. And finally it is here – CorelDRAW 2019 comes powered up with a grand beautiful Mac version

I am on PC Windows myself and I have used CorelDRAW and Corel Photo-Paint on a daily basis since 1997. And almost since that day I have heard about users longing, demanding, dreaming of a true MAC version of CorelDRAW Graphics Suite. They have waited for a long time, and now its here this gorgeous sunny day in Stockholm, Sweden. The only time there previously been a Mac version was in 2002 I believe, and it was the version 11.0. That´s long ago. So it was about time to make things bright and fun again for Mac OS users.

Learning that Corels CorelDRAW team worked closely with Apple to make CorelDRAW 2019 a truly true native Mac experience, version, vouch for a great success.

You can Download a Trial version working for 15 days here – CorelDRAW 2019 for Mac and CorelDRAW 2019 for Windows. And I highly recommend it. Being a power user of CorelDRAW and Corel Photo-Paint myself I would not be able to wait. And me, yes, I already have the new version for PC Windows installed. I move fast! And while on PC Windows it feels and really act super-fast, stable and already I have been able to put it to the test. Its a fab version. With new illustration and design work just coming in from clients of mine, it will a nice cup of coffee and cinnamon bun tomorrow and working hard and fun with the new cool and stable CorelDRAW 2019. And it works great of course as expected with my Wacom tablets.

I am a PC Windows user excited for the Mac users out there, to discover the great CorelDRAW Graphics Suite like so many others out there.

A great thing on top of this is the fact that while Adobe have their only subscription solution for Adobe Cloud users, COREL early on decided to give users the choice to choose. A DVD or a Download version they pay just once for. And the third solution being the subscription solution similar to Adobes. The Perpetual License version, and the Subscription version. So this too give an opportunity quite frankly for Mac users out there to take the leap of faith and join the fun creative world of CorelDRAW users.
