A CDR file is a vector drawing image file that is natively created with CorelDRAW for storing digital images encoded and compressed. Such a drawing file contains text, lines, shapes, images, colors, and effects for vector representation of image contents. It can be used for the representation of various graphics data like brochures, tabloids, envelopes, and postcards. Besides CorelDRAW, other Corel products such as Corel Paintshop Pro and CorelDRAW Graphics suite can also open the CDR file formats.
Enhanced metafile format (EMF) stores graphical images device-independently. Metafiles of EMF comprises of variable-length records in chronological order that can render the stored image after parsing on any output device. These variable-length records can be definitions of enclosed objects, commands for drawing, and graphics properties critical to render the image accurately.
You can also convert CDR into many other file formats. Please see the complete list below.
