A&E SEPTEMBER 2019 • a-e-mag.com 47 The Prepress tab (Figure 6) has several options. Bleed Limit is needed if the image requires a bleed, and it can be adjusted to any specific limit. A recipient often asks for Crop marks and/or Registration marks to be included in the file. Sometimes a Densitometer Scale is requested. Choosing these options typically depends on infor- mation received from your output vendor. It is always best to ask for their require- ments, suggestions, and limitations prior to sending a file to avoid duplication of effort on your part. I highly suggest reviewing the PDF doc- ument in your preferred PDF viewer prior to sending. I once sent a file that included clipart from Corel version 9; not known to me, it was set to overprint. I had to revise the file and resend it without overprints. A FEW OF THE MANY ABILITIES The CorelDRAW Graphics Suite has been tailored to give any user all the neces- sary tools and abilities needed to thrive in the world of visual graphic design. Whether illustration, banners, signs, newspaper print, plaques, or whatever else, we have all we need in this program to put our creativity on display and share it with other entities. In this article, we have explored a few of the abilities and options available in the program to make our designs available to other entities. One of my greatest thrills is to see a creation of mine used for a great pur- pose in advancing someone else. Years ago, I did it all by hand-painted designs. With CorelDRAW, I can easily exceed my pre- vious stuff by massive levels of visual impact, no longer providing nebulous sketches, but a real-world reproducible design. As always, I encourage any insights and/or questions related to the Corel- DRAW Graphics Suite be directed to dezender1@gmail.com. Questions will be answered as best I can, as soon I can.
