Likelihood to Recommend

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite

CorelDRAW is very well suited for customizing cross plots and diagrams from external software, and integrating them with multiple other sources, such as pictures, in order to distill the main concepts and summarize ideas for scientific papers. It also works great for digitizing figures from old papers and adapting them to the context of your work.

PicMonkey

I would definitely recommend PicMonkey! It is diverse for the average person or the business professional. If you need to edit pictures, create graphics, or implement marketing media this is the tool to use! It may not be enough for someone who needs something a bit more advanced like Photoshop, but in my experience it has covered everything I need.

Cons

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite

  • Some of the font files have spacing issues, for example, Monotype Corsiva is set a little to the right when choosing a centered text
  • We can't save a version of the CorelDRAW file as a jpeg.
  • The auto vertical text centering options don't always transfer well or show if saved as a pdf, so we hand-center text vertically.

PicMonkey

  • Changes to toolkit / use buttons are sometimes difficult to keep up with
  • Separating free items (fonts, images, etc.. ) from those requiring upgrade
  • Explanation of sizing tools / pixels is difficult to understand and apply

Just like any design program or suite, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who doesn't do graphic design professionally. If you're not adept at learning a program or experience, it isn't a program you can just pick up and start using easily. Outside of the learning curve, it's a nice program with a decent user interface.

PicMonkey's usability is outstanding! I was able to learn how to edit my photos and create graphics in a short period of time. Between the tutorials and the amazing user interface, I felt like a pro! PicMonkey is very detailed but not so overwhelming that you miss out on great features.

It's not easy to get people. The tutorials don't really "tell you" exactly how to do stuff. You have to depend on Youtube and even then, it's not the best. Corel really needs to put out really good quick tutorials on how to do "key" special effects, like how to remove a background QUICK, Art Conversions, Best Practices, etc.

I personally never really need support with PicMonkey. It works great, and I can find what I need. There may have been a few times when I've Googled for an answer related to PicMonkey, but I've not had a question answered.

Alternatives Considered

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite

Corel is as good as Adobe Illustrator but cheaper. It is easier to use than Inkscape, however, Inkscape is free. I chose Corel because I learned it 10+ years ago and transitions were easy enough, affordable enough that I didn't have to relearn or break the bank to continue with Corel.

PicMonkey

Adobe Photoshop is a better service with many more options, but for basic image manipulation for someone who is a beginner, PicMonkey is superior. There is almost NO learning curve. Canva has much better templates and design options, but not as many photo editing options. I like to use a combination of PicMonkey and Canva for my small-business marketing needs.

Return on Investment

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite

  • Ease of use reflects on less time to train new users, a positive impact in investment and productivity.
  • The practicality to make new designs results in less time needed to do them, again a positive impact.
  • The integration with other graphic programs could be better if needed to finish a rendering using the design made in Corel Draw it's needed to export in formats that don't carry all information and the process is not that simple.

PicMonkey

  • Gain in Facebook followers.
  • Increase in awareness of important city announcements.
