A friend of mine, in California, is in a band and designed the record sleeve for a release that’s coming out on a UK label. He sent me the artwork, as I work as a designer, and asked me to check it’s all OK.
The PDF he emailed me doesn’t fit the dimensions of the template. He insists he did it correctly.
So I asked him what software he used so that I could then get the original files from him instead of a PDF. And he told me it was Corel Draw.
My first thought was WTF, why is anyone using Corel Draw?!?!?!?
But the second question is why would a PDF made from Corel Draw be the wrong size? Does anyone know anything about Corel Draw and what might be going on here?
