Your getting a lot of answers to your question.....
Bottom line...... we have tried other programs and was not happy with them! This one gives you the opportunity to try it out then put your money out. I have purchased 2 others that did not give me an opportunity to try and they ended up pushed away because they are not user friendly! Also, another benefit to this program is this fabulous forum with talented individuals. Our group here is close, supportative, and always willing to help. My other programs did not have a support group or forum of wonderful people.
I am one of the earlier users and I have been amazed at how the developers listen to us and try to expand on what is available. Also, do remember that this program has only been available for less than 9 months and it beats the heck out of anything out there.
I certainly hope that you purchase the program but if you will be missing out!
Because it has great support
I like your idea of creating a page for each month of a baby's life. I have a 3-mo. old grandson who is inspiring my scrapbooking hobby, and I will borrow your idea for his next photos.
I also lasted about a week using the free download until I needed to buy the program. The outstanding support sold me on this product. I have never found any site that gives the instant feedback found here. Don't worry about the lack of fonts or templates in the sample. The CD will have plenty. Yes, it takes longer to receive the CD than instant download but you have a backup readily available if it malfunctions which is seldom.
Downpoints: The graphics store in the program and cause the program to load very slowly. Hopefully, the designers will move them in future editions to MY DOCUMENTS where the finished templates are stored. Yes, another program must be used for transparencies, but you become more creative when you have access to Photoshop Elements or a similar program. I also changed the catagories for my scraps and embellishments since the original ones were too limiting.
Pluspoints: Easy to use, creates CD slideshows easily, loads of free stuff on the net, limited photo editing, great forum support, contest, gallery for that pat on the back.
