CorelDRAW X4 Unleashed is read using a PDF reader. With your install, you have the choice of using Adobe Reader or Foxit Reader. These readers are updated on a regular basis to patch security risks. We recommend that you check to see if a newer version is available so that you are protected against the security risks. Note that these risks don't come from CorelDRAW X4 Unleashed, but rather unsavory people creating rogue PDF files to compromise your computer.
I have just browsed through Unleashed4 and think I ought to let you know what a very good product
it is—worth a lot more than what you charge.
The text is well written and the instructional videos first class. I would rate it as a must for anyone using Corel from beginner to expert and in saying that I can speak with authority having been CEO of a large College in the UK before I retired a few years ago.
I found this product to be a terrific resource for someone like myself who is just starting out with CorelDraw X4. It's well organized in it's progression from complete newbie to experienced user. I really like the search function which saves time when trying to find that one little piece of info to help your project along. The video demonstrations at the end of the chapters are a nice way to better understand what was just read.
Overall, I give this 5 stars since it's difficult to find a reference tool with so much material for this price. The author obviously knows CorelDraw X4 inside and out and has presented the material in a way that is easy to follow and comprehend.
The bonus content covering Corel Photo Paint is icing on the cake.
Try it, you won't be disappointed!
Would you prefer eight pages of color or every page in color? Does the printed book come with any tutorial movies? We supply 11.5 hours in the Standard Edition and 14.5 hours in the Premium Bonus Content Edition. Does the printed book supply any files with the book? We supply any sample files needed and much more.
Yes, you do need a computer to open this book. Last we checked, you also need a computer to run CorelDRAW. :) If someone wants a copy in print, they are welcome to print the book. That just means you miss out on all the benefits of having an electronic book. Below are a few things you'd miss.
No, it is an ebook. The printing costs would be around $100 for a book of this size in full color. And the reader would lose out on all the benefits described in the previous answer.
Let's do some evaluation on price. For several versions, Foster worked with a company that made videotapes teaching software. Their pricing was around $60 for each two hour videotape. We give you eleven and a half hours for less than that. Plus you get 932 pages of written material.
