Corel Corporation announced today that it is now shipping more native Mac OS X graphics offerings than any other major software vendor.
Corel intends to bring all future Mac professional graphics applications to Mac OS X, Apple's next generation operating system.
Corel's current line of native Mac OS X products includes Bryce 5, Corel GRAPHICS SUITE 10 for Macintosh, CorelDRAW 10 for Macintosh, Corel PHOTO-PAINT 10 for Macintosh and the procreate(TM) line of creative enhancement tools - Painter 7(TM), KPT effects(TM), and KnockOut 2.
Mac OS X combines the power of UNIX with the simplicity and elegance of the Macintosh to deliver an exciting new computing environment. Developed for Mac OS X, Corel products leverage the advanced graphics capabilities and reliability of this modern operating system.
"Mac OS X is an evolution in Apple computing. Apple's consistent performance and dominance in the professional creative market offers exciting business opportunities for our graphics applications. We've responded by introducing procreate specifically to serve these professional customers,'' said Ian LeGrow, executive vice-president of creative products at Corel. "Our applications running on this new operating system provide customers with a unique environment for unleashing their creative power.''
"Corel has demonstrated its commitment to Apple's customers and is leading the wave of development for the Mac by delivering seven outstanding offerings for Mac OS X,'' said Ron Okamoto, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. "With the introduction of procreate and Corel's aggressive development of high performance graphics applications, the company is taking full advantage of the capabilities and opportunity inherent to Mac OS X.''
