Corel today announced its new Membership Program where CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite X6 users can connect through a new cloud-based environment to leading edge graphic design tools and digital content. The new Membership Program will officially roll out today across multiple regions and will offer two membership levels. Standard Membership gives users product updates, as well as online access to digital content. Premium Membership provides exclusive digital content and early use of new product features before they are introduced to the broader CorelDRAW community in future product releases. In addition, Premium members will receive major product upgrades as they become available.
"Allowing users to create, connect and work with CorelDRAW Graphics Suite in a way that best suits them is a top priority for us. With the introduction of our new Membership Program, we're excited to offer more choice and extra benefits to ensure our users are getting the most out of their CorelDRAW experience," said Nick Davies, Executive Vice President of Graphics and Productivity at Corel.
The new Membership Program expands on the current CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 experience by offering members exclusive premium content, early access to new features and choices that go beyond what's included in the box. The CorelDRAW Membership includes:

The X6.1 update will allow Standard members to experience most of the Premium Membership features for free. For future updates, users can continue to enjoy exclusive features and online content by purchasing a Premium Membership.
