Hi there,

It is said (internet) that my coreldraw X4 version is not compatible with Windows10. The same problem seems to hold for Coreldraw X7 under WIN10 running on 64-bit systems. Luckely I didnot upgrade to win10 yet.

Does anyone know powerful alternative software for either coreldraw or photoshop software at an affordable price?

Gimp is free and powerful but the interface is a bit awkward

OK, that sounds good. Try out and become familiar with it.

Another question. Do you happen to know GIMP enables to cut out items, or clone pixels? I use cloning a lot to modify or clean up a cut out.

I use krita now its got a better interface then gimp and is maintained and up to date. https://krita.org/

Gimp was part of krita or krita was part of gimp at one point but there was a disagreement and the krita guys split off and developed something that was not so ackward to use. I switched when adobe started renting me their software.

KRITA is more digital painting software, I think. Fantastic results are shown, but i'm not a painter.

GIMP looks more like Coreldraw and corelpaint, as far as I've seen up to now.

Thanks for your suggestions!

Krita is almost identical to photoshop actually & gimp is actually an older version of krita. Its also way easier to use then gimp lol. Anyhow up to you I never got along with gimp they had a major issue with their usability and it had an issue with "blocking" the designers didnt know how to build software so krita was born after a UI designer had words with a gimp coder over it and they refused to make it more usable. (blocking in this sense means that you do an action and can't stop doing the action and get stuck in the application unable to progress further trying to unstick the function from your key so you can get moving again)

So the ui designer and a couple of coders got fed up and so krita was eventually born. I use it also because I can import my psd layered files into it that 3dcoat generates without issue and all my photoshop brushes work that I have collected over the years.
