The corel suite is a strange one - I used Corel Draw for years but could never get on with Photopaint at all.

The strange way it treated it's version of layers - the object system, was logical for someone coming from CD, I suppose but I just couldn't get used to it, plus other things were just in the wrong place or just didn't feel right, I kept an old version of PS on hand for the occasional bitmap edit I needed.

As Digital Photography took off and I needed more bitmap editing it made sense to go to Photoshop for the majority of work - any business related vector graphics I needed could be covered by tools in Office, especially with the improvements in Publisher, Word & Visio

One thing is for sure,
If I get over a couple of hills I'm sure cp will get better,
It took a while to get used to draw and it's tools... and I'm sure paint will come along in time,
To be truthful working with layers has always been a bit of a draw back,
I believe that's why Inkscape and cd are actually allot more straight forward dealing with them or different objects
So layers in paint ? I don't see them as an issue yet it's just some little stuff or paint's tools I need to get to know better which I'm just starting to do

For the gimp users out there Gimp 2.8.14 has been released

Change Log:

* General:
- Fix libtool versioning (forgot to bump gimp_interface_age)
- Massively clean up and fix the OSX build and bundle
- Add Jenkins tutorial
- Documentation updates
- Bug fixes
- Translation updates
* Core:
- OSX: Fix migration code for old GIMP directories
- Fix brush sizes when used from plug-ins
- Windows: Allow to Explorer-open files with UTF-8 characters in the filename
- Make XCF loading more robust against broken files
* GUI:
- Make sure the widget direction matches the GUI language
- Remove the option to disable the warning when closing a modified image
- Fix canvas overlay widgets (like the text options) for tablets
- Make DND work between images in one dockable
* Libgimp:
- Make gimp_image_get_name() return the string used for the image title
* Plug-ins:
- Make script-fu-server more secure by listening to 127.0.0.1 by default and add a warning about changing that IP. This breaks the procedure's API, but for security reasons.
- Bring back proper script-fu translations

Thanks Jamie. I don't use Gimp much these days so I have the Portable Apps version which will update automatically.

I also noticed that there is a Home and Student version of CorelDRAW X7 out today. Graphic software ? CorelDRAW Home & Student Suite X7. I may give it a go sometime.

A little heads up,
cd7 files do not work in cd6 if you choose to not go for cd7 the files will be worthless

Has anyone downloaded this version yet, i don't see the 'New Layer' icon any more?
It's there to click but invisible which is annoying, is it a bug or just me?

Looking for some graphics software
Have had a look at Paint Net and Gimp but am not sure if they will do what I want to do. I haven't had much to do with graphics per se' and haven't got a really decent GPU and I don't mind a paid for app as long as it isn't going to break the bank. So any suggestions please?
