CorelDraw X8 comes with a plug-in that addresses another common problem and potential time waster. This is not a new plug-in but it has had its own version update. In a nutshell, this program allows you to take low-resolution images and increase the resolution to something higher while at the same time improving image quality. It is not hard to increase the resolution of a low-resolution image, but normally you end up making it easier to see the poor quality better. This plug-in allows you to actually increase resolution and image quality at the same time. It’s not the same as retaking the photo at a higher resolution, but works well enough for most purposes.
