CorelDRAW is a vector graphics editor developed and marketed by Corel Corporation. It is also the name of the Corel graphics suite, which includes the bitmap-image editor Corel Photo-Paint as well as other graphics-related programs.

The bitmaps and vector graphics are two primary computer graphics type. These vector graphics have been made of curves and lines, and are produced from a mathematical description. It examines the direction, length, and position where lines have been drawn. The bitmap is also called raster images. The bitmap is composed of tiny squares known as pixels. All the pixels are mapped to any location inside an image. It contains values as numerical color.

The vector graphic is ideal for illustration and logos because it is resolution-independent. It can be shown without losing quality. It can be detailed at a resolution and scaled at a printed, or size. In addition, we can generate a crisp and sharp outline along with the vector graphics.
