    gimp is for raster images, the other two for vector graphics

    Gimp is a photo editor. It works with raster images. It is very much like Adobe Photoshop.
    Both Corel Draw and Adobe Ilsutraror or vector drawinf programs that are for creating editable, vector based drawings. That said there is some overlap of functions

    May I answer your question with a question? What exactly is it you want to do? THe more detail you can give the better advice others can offer.

    I work with vector art all the time. And I was looking for somethng comparable. To Adobe Illustrator, is there such a thing for Linux? I never used Gimp before but I wanted to give it a try.

    I think the OpenOffice.org Draw is pretty similar, although I'm not sure.

    The GIMP isn't really comparable to Illustrator and Corel Draw, it's for more like Photoshop.
