This is a very versatile programme with great applications to photography, graphic design and as my mum even tested also some handy elements for card making. You would need an extra programme for card making though depending on the level you want to take it too, such as more background papers.
It is easy to import your own photographs and then there are lots of photo editing features including levels, red eye, cropping, cloning, perspective correction and panoramic scenes to apply to them. I was particularly impressed with the perspective correction and successfully applied it to the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
There is a 3D facility, which is really great, and you can get some fantastic results, this was my mum’s favourite part, but I was too dazzled by straightening the Leaning Tower of Pisa for 3D ducks and the like to hold as much magic. My mum showed me how to clone too, it is useful for hiding unattractive features, like if you had an electricity pylon in the middle of a scenic picture, and you could make more of the nice view to get rid of the unsightly features.
It also gives you tips when you open the programme – these are handy when you are a new user and a bit blank like I was in the beginning! It can be slightly overwhelming at first but you soon get the hang of it. My mum in particular was somewhat of a whiz by the end of it!!!
It has a wide range of clip art covering numerous topics so you would find pretty much everything you need there. I think it would be useful for making fundraising materials for all the local committees I am on! It is easy to control the shapes and clip art, so I could make some eye-catching posters!
This programme is well thought out and gives so much value for money (It is currently available from Amazon for £39.99). But being the kind charitable blogger I am, I have a competition for you to win a code to download it on your own computer. To enter please complete the rafflecopter below by the 27th of April.
