Maybe so.. but corel is like a hybrid, and doesn't really focus on one area (ie illustration or photo editing). So instead of using two SOLID programs to complete a task you end up using one all rounder (which has half the power). So if you already good with photoshop. I'd suggest using illustrator.
True. So it's pointless going back and forth. Lets help him already. I found when I first started using photoshop (ages ago... actually nice to reminisce) that tutorials were alot of help. Especially getting to grips with tools and how to apply them in real situtations. Anyway a simple google search with the search string "coreldraw" I found a tutorial site. Obviously many more out there. But thats for you to discover. Here's a link to the site I found. Haha, doesn't look that hot but you get the idea. Good luck and all the best.
