Softpedia Editor's Review for CDR Viewer
View and resize your CDR files
Written by Mihaela Citea on December 27th, 2012
As its name suggests, CDR Viewer is a simple application that you can use to view CDR files. This format is specific to vector graphic files used by the popular CorelDraw and cannot be opened with many image programs.
Viewing CDR files is not the sole function of the application, as you have the possibility to export them to other image formats, such as JPG, PNG, BMP, TIFF or GIF, which are easily recognized by any picture viewer.
Designed with simplicity in mind, the interface is compact and user-friendly. It only comprises a few buttons that allows you to change the zoom level with your mouse or the slider control, adjust the image to the display and rotate it by 90 degrees.
In addition to viewing and converting CDR files, the application can also be used for resizing CDR image files. Just open the desired Corel Draw file and the program automatically displays its current size, enabling you to change the width and height according to your preferences, without worrying about picture quality loss.
Although it does not provide you with a lot of features, CDR Viewer is designed to solve compatibility issues when opening CDR image format. With the help of this straightforward tool, you don't need to have CorelDraw installed in order to display, convert or resize CDR files.
