Never mind, that's where we all start,
and software in general should be usable
by any user.

I know the problems you reported
from plain latex with eps Import.
Problems there are because Postscript
is a programming language (dedicated to describing Pages)
and imported eps pictures are "subroutines" with sometimes
undesirable side effects. I don't know if this explanation
holds if you're talking pdf, though.

Try a third one ;-) Export *.png format
(Corel should be able to do that)
and import that in pdftex.

Your subroutine (picture) might contain
the command for a new page, I'd blame Corel for that.

Corel might do some kind of color management,
or use the gamma value in that picture incorrectly.
