Corel Offers Powerful Alternatives to Creative Cloud

Potentially of interest to some indie developers?

Maidenhead, UK – Wednesday 22 May, 2013 – Corel today announced a special pricing program specifically for Creative Suite users looking for an alternative to Creative Cloud. As some software companies move to subscription only models, Corel continues to offer users the flexibility to choose how they want to purchase and experience Corel products. Creative Suite users are invited to try or purchase award-winning Corel software including CorelDRAW Graphics SuitePainterPaintShop Pro,VideoStudio Pro and AfterShot Pro at a special price (ranging up to 60% off SRP).

“We strongly believe that users should be able to choose how they would like to purchase their software,” said Nick Davies, EVP & GM Graphics, Digital Media & Productivity Software at Corel. “We recognise that there isn’t one solution that will work for everyone, which is why we have different offerings for the diverse products in our portfolio. We will continue to sell perpetual licenses in both the box and download format, in addition to offering CorelDRAW subscriptions and more, in order to meet the needs of our users.”
