Hi. This is Geoff Blake and welcome to Corel Graphics Suite X4. I hope you're up for all kinds of graphic-related learning here in CorelDRAW. You know, before we delve headlong into it though, maybe what we should do is we should take a quick look at some of the things that we'll be talking about during our time here together. So here's a quick run-through. First off, we'll talk about the differences between raster graphics and vector graphics and then what we'll do is I'll give you a tour of the CorelDRAW interface and I'll show you some techniques for working more efficiently in the interface. From there we'll talk about creating some shapes inside our documents, including custom shapes and I'll show you how to organize and arrange your shapes and objects in your layouts. We'll apply some transformation effects to our shapes and objects and then we'll delve headlong into working with color, including some custom fills and some custom outlines as well. Then what we'll do is we'll get into working with type, including some type effects and I'll also show you how work with type more efficiently inside your layouts, including linking your text frames together into a text flow. So we'll talk about that and then what we'll do with all of that out of the way is we'll get into creating some eye-popping special effects and I'm really excited to get into that with you and then we'll talk about working with multi-layered files and working with additional pages inside our files. Finally we'll take a look at exporting our work, getting our work out of Corel for both use in the print world and also in the world of web design. So I hope you're up for all of this. Without further adieu, let's get started.
