Thanks for choosing Scrapbook MAX!. You're really going to love it!
You can definitely get started right away. Simply uninstall the trial version, and then download and install the full version using the instructions you received by email. It's the same software that you'll be getting in the mail on CD-ROM. Then, when you get the CD-ROM, you can install the CD-ROM content pack and you'll have all the extra goodies to work with too!
As for tutorials, start with the User's Guide. It's available on the Help menu inside the software. It's really quite good. An online version is also available at www.scrapbookmax.com/webhelp/.
Also, there are a couple of great videos available online (and a super high quality video tutorial on your CD-ROM!). The online version is compressed a bit more, but it's still great. Check it out at http://www.scrapbookmax.com/site/tours.php.
Let us know if you have any other questions!
Scrapbook MAX! 2.0 is here!. It's simply better digital scrapbooking software!
