OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- May 22, 2013 -- Corel today announced a special pricing program specifically for Creative Suite users looking for an alternative to Creative Cloud. As some software companies move to subscription only models, Corel continues to offer users the flexibility to choose how they want to purchase and experience Corel products. Creative Suite users are invited to try or purchase award-winning Corel software including CorelDRAW Graphics Suite, Painter, PaintShop Pro, VideoStudio Pro and AfterShot Pro at a special price (ranging up to 60% off SRP).
"We strongly believe that users should be able to choose how they would like to purchase their software," said Nick Davies, EVP & GM Graphics, Digital Media & Productivity Software at Corel. "We recognize that there isn't one solution that will work for everyone, which is why we have different offerings for the diverse products in our portfolio. We will continue to sell perpetual licenses in both the box and download format, in addition to offering CorelDRAW subscriptions and more, in order to meet the needs of our users."
Corel Offers Best of Both Worlds
Whether users are looking for a short-term commitment or want to always be up-to-date but own their software, Corel delivers the options and flexibility to cater to diverse users. In addition to a subscription or perpetual license of CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite, the CorelDRAW Premium Membership program adds the benefits of a subscription (always up-to-date, exclusive content and more) to the perpetual usage right of the product, offering the best of both worlds.
Take Corel Products for a Test Run
To experiment with the tools, features and workflow of Corel products, free 30-day fully functional trials can be downloaded at www.corel.com/cs. Learning resources are available within the product and through the Corel Discovery Center to ease into the transition and become more familiar with the power of Corel products.
"I'm a graphic designer by trade and I've tried just about every professional design application out there, but CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 trumps them all!" said Scott Huff, CorelDRAW user. "The streamlined interface is highly customizable with dockers and tools that are useful and intuitive. The integration within the applications means I never need to leave my Corel environment. From initial sketches to final proof I complete my work in a fraction of the time it takes using the competition's top tools."
