corel draw is a vector based program used to make vector art. Adobes answer to corel draw is Adobe Illustrator. Corel is an older program, although still being produced, but not widely used because Adobe packages their programs. Adobe Photoshop is a pixel based program that uses small squares of color to make a picture. This is called the DPI (dots per inch). Vector programs dont work in DPI. Difference: You can make a vector art file as large as you want. A block of color is a block of color. You can take a 1 in by 1 in square and scale it to 1 ft by 1 ft and it will look exactly the same. In photoshop if you create a 1 in by 1 in square and scale it to 1 ft by 1 ft you get pixelation. Most logos are created as vector formats so they can be scaled to be small like a business card or large like on a billboard with no pixelation. You couldn't do that with a file created in photoshop. Biggest difference is artistic control. All the creative affects you see are done in photoshop. Corel doesnt have affects. But when you combine the powers of both you can have a nice looking billboard with a huge logo. hope this helps.
