Convert CDR to PNG

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.

Steps to convert CDR to PNG in C#

GroupDocs.Conversion allows developers to convert the CDR file to PNG format in an easy and intuitive way just using a few lines of code as described below:

  • Call Converter class Convert method and pass the filename for the converted PNG file and the ImageConvertOptions object from the previous step as parameters.
// Load the source CDR file
using (Converter converter = new Converter("sample.cdr"))
{
    string outputFileTemplate = Path.Combine(outputFolder, "converted-page-{0}.png");
    GroupDocs.Conversion.Contracts.SavePageStream getPageStream = page => new FileStream(string.Format(outputFileTemplate, page), FileMode.Create);

    // Set the convert options for PNG format
    var options = new ImageConvertOptions { Format = GroupDocs.Conversion.FileTypes.ImageFileType.Png };   
    // Convert to PNG format
    converter.Convert(getPageStream, options);
