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.
A file with .emz extension is a compressed container of Enhanced Metafile (.emf file). It follows GZIP compression algorithm and takes less storage space due to compression. The small file size makes it more easy to transfer EMZ files over the network.
You can also convert CDR into many other file formats. Please see the complete list below.
