CorelDRAW X4 Unleashed Provides Training for CorelDRAW Users
Foster D. Coburn III is well known to the CorelDRAW community as the author of many books and articles dedicated to Corel's Windows-based graphics suite, as well as the owner of the long-running Graphics Unleashed site, which provides a wide range of tips and tutorials. He's also behind the CorelDRAW Unleashed Boot Camps, which provide three days of intense training at Unleashed's training theater in Cave Creek, Arizona.
In 2007 he launched a new free magazine, CorelDRAW Unleashed, in PDF format, which appears every two months. The publication is integrated with online content that extends what is covered in the downloadable magazine. The focus, not unexpectedly, is on CorelDRAW and Corel PHOTO-PAINT but it also covers CorelDRAWings and Corel Designer, as well as general design topics and third-party products.
There have been many books devoted to CorelDRAW over the years, starting with the very first to be published in 1990, Mastering CorelDRAW, by Graphics.com editor Chris Dickman. While books on DRAW are now scarce, Coburn has managed to keep his own DRAW book alive over the years as a downloadable publication, complete with video tutorials. The latest version, CorelDRAW X4 Unleashed, is a 932-page ebook featuring full color pages of detailed information on getting the most from CorelDRAW X4, and includes more than eleven and a half hours of multimedia tutorials. Provided in PDF format, the book includes many links to useful web pages, as well as the tutorials. Sample files of the projects are also provided, so readers can work along while reading and watching.
CorelDRAW X4 Unleashed is also available in a Premium Bonus Content Edition that adds the 127-page Corel PHOTO-PAINT X4 Unleashed, with another two hours of tutorial movies and 37 of Jeff Harrison's best Powertips, adding an additional hour of tutorial movies.
CorelDRAW X4 Unleashed has a list price of $79.95, but is available directly from the Graphics Unleashed site for $54.95. CorelDRAW X4 Unleashed Premium Bonus Content Edition lists for $99.95 and sells for $74.95 at the Graphics Unleashed site.
