CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2021
CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2021 is Lizenso’s choice for the best graphics design software of 2023. This is the most advanced software, with the most functions and features in this ranking. CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2021 is mainly used by design professionals and is made for people with a lot of experience and knowledge. It includes all the features that CorelDRAW offers. This makes it the most expensive version, however, this is the perfect choice for people who need vector based graphic software for their job, or use it extensively in their free time. A big advantage of CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2021, is the fact that it is a perpetual license. This means, you would not need to repurchase or renew this license again, thus you can practically use it forever.
CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 365
CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 365 is a very nice and useful software for creating your designs. It is a subscription-based license, therefore, you would need to pay a certain amount to be able to use it for a year. As all subscription-based licenses, you have to renew it every year. Graphics Suite 365 offers functions such as cloud-based access from any device, regular updates and new features, and professional photo editing. This application can be used on both Windows and MacOS.
CorelDRAW Standard 2021
CorelDRAW Standard 2021 is the basic version of the CorelDRAW 2021 series. This is also the cheapest option out of the top 3, which explains why the software offers the least functions out all the 3 CorelDRAW licenses. The limited functions makes it the perfect software for beginners or enthusiasts.
- If you use CorelDRAW rather rarely, then CorelDRAW Standard 2021 is the version for you.
- If you use graphic software more than sporadically, then CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 365 or CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2021 is better suited for you. Read more about CorelDRAW here.
Corel Painter 2022
Corel Painter 2022 is another product from Corel, however, this one, is a bit different from the other 3 graphic design software. While CorelDRAW focuses more on vector graphics, Corel Painter focuses on the raster images. Corel Painter can be used for private and business purposes. Some key features of Corel Painter 2022 are its multifunctionality, as you can use the license on three different devices. Additionally, it has very good and advanced software. Corel Painter is available on both Windows and MacOS. Read more about Corel Painter here.
Adobe Photoshop Elements 2022
Adobe Photoshop Elements 2022 is the last but not least in Lizenso’s ranking of the best graphic design software for 2023. The reason for its 5th place is the fact that the license can be used for the creation of graphic designs, but that is not its main purpose. Adobe Photoshop Elements is primarily used for photos and videos editing. This still allows you to create a beautiful design, but for this you will have to start with a photo or video basis. This is a bit of a disadvantage in comparison to the other 4. However, Lizenso highly recommends Adobe Photoshop Elements 2022 when looking for a photo/video editing software. Finally, Adobe Photoshop Elements 2022 can be used on both Windows and MacOS. Click here to read more about Adobe Photoshop Elements.
