Amazon.com Review

The Print Shop Deluxe 15 retains the legendary ease of use made famous by the previous 14 versions of the software, while adding a handful of useful applets and functions. As with all Print Shop products, you can make a ton of stationery items including signs, banners, letterhead, cards, calendars, fliers, and so on. The interface is absolutely terrific and geared toward both rank amateurs and experts: you can create any one of these items with a wizard to guide you through the entire process, or start with a blank slate and build the item yourself. Throughout the process, you can use your own photos and art or pick from thousands upon thousands of ready-made bits of clip art, borders, photos, designs, and more.

Among this product's new features are the ability to save projects as PDF files for professional printing, a simple interface for sharing items through the Internet, new brush effects to enhance your imported photos, and a video editing applet that lets you edit your own videos into video files.

The only thing missing from The Print Shop Deluxe 15 is a printed manual. All of the documentation is online, and it includes a manual accessible from outside the program and rich help files accessible inside. Still, it would be nice to have a manual to reference while attempting a project you haven't done before. Plus, there's one new feature that backfires. Media Manager tries to be an organizer for all of your images, video clips, music files, and so on, but its interface is clunky; it's easier to use Windows Explorer.

Regardless of those tiny tribulations, The Print Shop Deluxe 15 is a terrific program all around. It continues to flaunt the many strengths of the series and adds some useful features without bloating the package. --Joel Durham Jr. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Just keeps getting better!
If you liked Print Shop before, you'll love it now! Many new features, including the "Photo Workshop," make it easy to edit and improve your scanned and digital photos. You'll get near-Photoshop results at a fraction of the cost and without the painful learning curve. You can also add 'artistic effects' to your projects such as posterizing, Impressionist, or Psychedelic.

And NEW NEW NEW - you can save your projects as PDFs! This feature alone makes it worth the price of admission - you can share your projects with everyone, and the PDF format makes it great if you want to carry your project off to the local photo store for printing.

Now you can email your Print Shop projects using the "Share Project" feature, and your less-fortunate loved ones who don't have Print Shop can enjoy your creations!

The freehand crop feature has been improved - now you can modify your crop points to get a perfect crop.

The desktop is easy to understand, you really won't need instructions on how to work the product - it's truly intuitive

Tons more graphics, a new calendar creator (better than the ones that cost $$$ separately), and free project downloads from the internet makes this product a must-have for everyone, regardless of skill level. From super-user to novice, this product delivers!

I could go on and on - but stop reading now and order the product - you won't be sorry!

2-0 out of 5 stars After 15 versions, you'd think they'd get it right!
Good old Print Shop! I have a love/hate relationship with it. On the one hand, it is the greatest thing going for arranging "objects" like text boxes, photographs and other graphics on a page for producing greeting cards, signs and the like. Fifteen is the third version I have purchased, and it features a custom paper wizard, with which you are supposed to be able to create a template for unique paper sizes. First of all, there are only a few formats available upon which the wizard can work its magic. Second of all, it doesn't work very well. I wasted HOURS trying to get some cards printed without having the objects print crazily off the edge of the paper. All I succeeded in doing was to mess up the standard half fold card template, after which it was trial and error and a lot of wasted paper before I got a card presentable enough to send. As long as you aren't too creative, The Print Shop is a useful workhorse of a tool for home printing.

1-0 out of 5 stars RUN WHILE YOU STILL CAN
I bought this product to help with my scrapbooking projects. I used it for only the most simple layouts and had nothing but trouble. IT IS EXTREMELY SLOW AND CUMBERSOME. I wouldn't give this product to my ex-mother-inlaw. The clip art is cheezy and trite. Forget trying to import a graphic. Forget trying to shut down the product...you'll go mad waiting!
IF you value your sanity...DO NOT BUY this product

5-0 out of 5 stars Great design software
I have used this program for almost a year and find it the easiest program I own to create a variety of print projects. I also have Microsoft's Office Suite Professional version which includes Publisher, etc. I can't do nearly as many creative things with that extraordinarily expensive suite of programs as I can with The Print Shop. Try designing a greeting card as an example. In most programs you are limited to the format of the particular template, whether quarter fold or half fold. In Publisher I had to design my own template to do a top fold half fold card. Moving graphics or text in Publisher or Word is a nightmare of formatting, etc. In The Print Shop, I can place anything I want in any position I want. I can rotate text or images any direction I like. In addition, if the many images that come with the program are not enough, you can simply go to the Microsoft clip art page online and either copy/paste any clip you like or just drag any clip right into The Print Shop project you are working on. Not many other programs are that easy to get along with. I don't use it to do my photo editing and I don't believe it is marketed as a photo editing program. However, there are some effects that can be applied to photos that I don't know where else I could find. This program, for a few dollars, has put hundreds of dollars of software on my computer out to pasture. It really does it all and does it well. Worth many times the price they charge.

4-0 out of 5 stars great for some, not for others
Even though there were a lot of negative reviews I bought this product mostly because PC Magazine rated it one of the best (5 stars) and the price can't be beat with the discounts. Here's my take if you read the other reviews like I did.

This program tries to make it easy to start a project (with a walk through wizard) but with any publishing software, you have to know what you are doing. That includes understanding your printer settings, etc. Yes, printer settings can be changed with the program (as with most any software) so it will take some time for inexperienced users to understand how to use it properly.

I must say, this program offers a ton of nice clip art, photos, etc than most other programs in this class. It has 2 CD's full of clipart but you'll need a lot of disk space to install it all. The broadband version of PrintShop accesses the clipart from the internet but with big hard drives available these days, save yourself some headache and buy the regular software, not the broadband one. If you don't have a lot of harddrive space (a few gigs to spare) I wouldn't suggest buying this.

There is no user manual included and the help files are not as in depth as I would like. I find it hard to believe that a complicated program such as this does not have at least a printable copy of a user manual. So be warned, if you not an experienced software user this product might not be for you.

I also saw some negative reviews on photo editing/printing. I haven't tried it so I can't compare. (I use other software for photo editing and printing). There are a lot of great photo editing software packages available. If you're purchasing this for that reason, you might want to look somewhere else. This thing is for printing out greeting cards, postcards, and things of that nature. I guess you can be thankful that there is photo editing features with this at all.

Final take - For someone who has used software since they were young and does for a living, I could figure most things out on my own. If you are inexperienced, you may find this product frustrating. But for the price, you get a lot of nice clipart and wizards to help for most basic home desktop publishing needs (greeting cards, postcards, calendars, etc). ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars It does the job
I got tired of having tons of unused business cards with outdated info and I've decided to try making my own cards when it's needed. I bought this program and some Avery CleanEdge paper and installed it on my laptop. What was my impression? Well, it was easy as promised. Of course, many of their 4000+ design samples were not very impressive, but I found something very close to what I was looking for and customization took just a few minutes. When I entered my Avery paper code, it picked picked it up and printed just perfectly, the cards came out looking really good. So it does it's job and I've got what I've been promised in a very quick time. I can't say anything bad about this software, so I gave 5 stars.

But I want to give you a little warning. if you're technically savvy and not going to use really advanced features like matching envelopes, blanks etc, then you can probably get the same thing done in regular Microsoft Word. It will take a little bit longer, but it's pretty much the same standard document editor with some clip art collection. So before you buy make sure you understand clearly what you want to get and it's really beyond what you can do with your favorite text editor. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Access is "iffy"
I've owned previous versions of this product, and I enjoyed using them. I found switching CDs a little annoying though, and welcomed the idea of one disk, with most of the art stored online, without taking up space on my computer.

The art is wonderful; my real complaint with the program is the website access. All too often, I find myself in the middle of designing something when suddenly an object cannot download. There appears a blurb from the manufacturer telling you to try again later. Sometimes "later" is just a few moments later, other times it can be quite a while. Also, I find that the thumbnails are a little slow appearing, making scrolling through the art time consuming. I would give this product a much higher rating if it wasn't for this unreliability. I like the PrintShop, but I just bought Version 20 Deluxe, to be installed when I install my larger hard drive. I haven't installed it yet; I'm reading reviews here to see if anything else sounds more promising.

1-0 out of 5 stars Experienced Print Shop user
I bought the print shop deluxe version 15 because I had been very pleased with its previous editions. Well not with this one. It installed only part of the program, I uninstalled the whole program and started installation again, but the program insists it is already installed. So here I sit with a new program that is useless. Have contacted Broderbund but have not had a reply. Have had the computer checked out and it is the program not the computer causing the problem.

2-0 out of 5 stars Terrible Software - Does edit photos
This is terrible software. I gave it two stars because it does edit photos and I needed that feature, but, overall I am very sorry that I spent my money before looking at these reviews.

The interface is AWFUL! For example, if you want to add a rectangle you would think you would just click on a rectangle tool and draw it. Nope! Instead you click on "Insert Shape", then you get a dialog box of possible shapes. You have to select the shape you want and the color in this dialog box. Then you click OK. Now you have a rectangle that you can reshape.

The Wizards are OK, but the designs are very lame and unprofessional. The system creates some integrated letterhead and business cards, but you wouldn't want to use them.

I bought this ... figuring, ...how much worse can it be than Microsoft Publisher 2000? Afterall, this isn't rocket science. The answer was MUCH worse!

1-0 out of 5 stars Is there an award for Worst Software Imaginable?
This is great if you want to send a note to your Aunt Helen. Anything more substantial and it is full of quirks and bugs. Huge Waste of Money----the programmers should be lined up and shown the door or preferably worse.

3-0 out of 5 stars No Manual

5-0 out of 5 stars In terms of value, best productivity suite available
Like some of the other reviewers, I'm rather surprised at the number of negative reviews that Appleworks has received. While it is true that Appleworks is not as powerful as Microsoft Office, it is much less expensive and clearly represents a better value. The word processer part of it (the part that most people will use) is more intuitive and easier to use than Microsoft Word. True, Word is more powerful; but it costs $350 and requires a manual to use. I have never needed to use a manual to use Appleworks. You have complete control of your documents and you don't have to summon up the help application to figure out how to do common tasks like formatting paragraphs or adding links. Those who have mastered the complexities of MS Word and who require its special features may not like Appleworks. But for the rest of us, it more than meets our needs.

Also, one thing more: I have never had any trouble with Appleworks' translators from cwk to word format. I'm not sure why so many people have reported having trouble with it. I translated an entire book from Appleworks to PC MS Word, preserving the formats and special lettering instructions without any trouble at all. In any case, this wouldn't be a problem if people would show more courtesy to non-MS users (Macs and Linux) and not insist on sending them doc formatted files. PDF and rtf are far better cross-platform alternatives.

5-0 out of 5 stars What's not to like?
Ok, I'm am sure that there are features in Word or Excel that some of you might use and the key word is might, but for the other 98% of us. Apple Works is a complete program that is full featured and easy to use. It can save and all of latest Microsoft Office file formats and that is half the battle most of the time with some of the attachments that I receive. Other than that I've been using it for about two months now and it has done everything that I have asked it to do and done it with ease. I have no problems with crashing or quiting unexpectedly under OS X. I start it and it runs and runs and runs. It's a great value even if just to open and looks at an Excel spreadsheet or Word doucument.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Value Suite of Software
I have been using computer word processors extensively since 1986. In 2001, I switched from being primarily a PC user to being a Mac user. And Appleworks is one of the programs I use the most.

I cannot understand the reviews on this page which slam Appleworks (especially the OSX version) for not being compatible with MS Word. I covert files back and forth from PC to Mac with no problem whatsoever. The best printer I have access to is on a PC at work. I usually write documents at home, convert them to a MS Word document, and email them to myself at work. Then at work the next day I print them. No problem.

There seems to be one glitch if you save files as a rich text file. The translator doesn't know the following characters: " '

But if you save it as a MS Word for Windows 98, 2000, ME file, you don't have this problem.

Apple, keep up the good work. The average Joe or Jane should not have to pay hundreds upon hundreds of dollars to get a solid word processor.

1-0 out of 5 stars AppleWorks is crap
I have hoped and prayed for a Microsoft alternative. Unfortunately it is a Microsoft world, if you want to communicate with that world on a Mac use Office for Mac, it is brilliant. As much as I tried to move towards Works, I purchased it first, I could not, the spread sheet program in Works alone leaves you on a deserted island.

Save your headaches if you share any files than jump up to Office for Mac, however much that disgusts me to admits, it is a superior product.

1-0 out of 5 stars why upgarde
Editorial review claims Appleworks 6 will translate Word documents with Dataviz translator. Last phrase is the key. Appleworks 6 does no more translation than did Appleworks 5. If you want to manage in the PC world, either buy a PC or buy Dataviz Maclink Plus. Appleworks 6 offers nothing special for compatibility in spite of the misleading editorial review. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Aargh
Three quarters of a million clips and none of them graceful. All jarring junk and limited at that. Hard to use. Editing not possible. And now I have an icon on my desktop so I can order more with no trouble. (I don't think that will happen.) Still trying to find out what the web clip art is all about--beyond me. Regret I did not order through Amazon. I would have had a heads up and not gone forward.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to Use - Great for Broadband Users
This program is SIMPLE to use. The fact that many of the images are online is OK with me (and should be for most broadband users) because this way I do not have as many disks to swap or room taken up on my hard drive! The images are wonderful and they go on forever. How can you not find what you are looking for with this many images? This really is a great product.

1-0 out of 5 stars Clickart review
The images are not beautiful and the software is not easy to use. I am very disapointed in the software and it is too bad that you cannot return the opened product!

1-0 out of 5 stars Good packaging for a rip off product
I have complaints about everything in this package. The extra software did not work and the whole package turns out to be a continual advertisement for Broderbund to buy more online products and subscriptions. Like the users above, I expected the box to contain the graphics advertised. It is just as well, since I found most unusable anyway. Junk. Cute junk but junk. Trite.

This has angered me so much that I will never purchase any product from Broderbund again.

1-0 out of 5 stars Liked it less than Clickart 200,000
As a graphic artist I started with Clickart 25,000 and liked it. I upgraded to Clickart 125,000 and Clickart 200,000 as they were released. So far the Clickart 200,000 version has been the best. It came with 14 cds and 2 large volumes of well-organized thumbnails for finding the right image. I had expected more of the same. Clickart 750,000 was, unfortunately, very disappointing. No printed catalog and very few of the images I purchased were actually in the box. Most of them require online registration and downloading. That was not made clear during ordering or I would not have ordered. The book that IS enclosed titled: "Getting Organized in the Digital Age" seems to have very little to do with Clickart.
I own several Corel products and a few from Art Explosion. Clickart 750,000 does not compare well either with these or Clickart's previous versions. Be sure you know exactly what you are getting and are sure this is indeed what you want. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars So much better than American Greetings
For years I have used American Greetings Gold or Platnum. This program is so much better than American Greetings Gold or Platnum no matter what edition.

I always email greeting cards to friends and family. The latest version of American Greetings (Gold 8) made it impossible for family and friends to open or view the e-cards I sent. The e-cards I send with Hallmark Card Studio are easy to open and view.

Making cards or your own projects is also so much easier with Hallmark Card Studio than with American Greetings.

4-0 out of 5 stars Easier to use than Greetings 2000
In response to Christine Iacomini, the one great thing that this version has over Greetings 2000 is exactly what she didn't like about it: it's very simple.

We have the original version of Card Studio (version 1.0a, which we got almost 8 years ago) and the one thing my wife (not very computer saavy) loved about the program is that it was really easy to use. In fact, when she tried to use Greetings 2000, she insisted I install the older version (which is still installed and works great).

Anyway, Card Studio 2004 does have enhancements over previous versions, but it also brings back a much simpler interface compared to 2000. This may irk some people that want a lot of fine-tuned control over their creations, but it makes it easier for those people that want a program that you don't need to hunt through the controls to use!

1-0 out of 5 stars it's terrible
I'm really dissappointed with this product. Unlike other Hallmark programs, it does not have all it says on the program and it locks up my system, (which is a brandnew p4) When I can get it to work it only prints part of the card and does not center it correctly so the finished product looks terrible.

I think Hallmark needs to fix the problems and offer a working upgrade.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Creative Tool, Some Performance Issues.
Hi,

I first was a bit hesitant to buy a branded piece of software (i.e. Hallmark), because I've had terrible experiences in the past with such a products. However, this time it turned out to be pretty good. The interface it's quite intuitive, the layout (i think) it's no-nonsense, and the creative options are just great. It's easy to get "lost" at first because of the plethora of possibilities, but once one has done it couple of times it becomes VERY easy to use and navigate. My wife created a fully personalized card (i.e. from scratch) and printed it in less than half an hour. Granted, you will not be getting all the bells and whistles that other packages out there have, but at this price it's quite a bargain.
My only qualm is that the program is indeed a bit "heavy" on system resources and if you're doing an extravagant piece of card, it will be slow to work with and print.
Over all, it's a buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy and fun
There are lots of different cards and activities. I am very happy with the variety and quality. Easy to use, especially when printing! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Good software with minor flaws
With this version there are LOTS of cards to choose from. There are actually 5 categories that include birthdays, holidays, special days, day by day, and other projects. The predesigned cards are nicely designed and there's also an option to design your own card from scratch. The text of some cards can't be changed though, so if you want to use those graphics, you'll have to do a bit more work (copying and pasting). And the button to customize your printer settings within the software doesn't work. You have to change the settings from Windows by pressing start, control panel, etc. No biggie though. This program does take a lot of hard drive space with a full install (1.6 gigs). I guess my major gripe is there's no way to remove the logo from the back page. I don't mind the Hallmark one but the "2002, Universal Vivendi Games, Inc" one is kind of tacky.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great versatile product!
I love the designs in the Hallmark Card Studio. I have used the American Greeting one and found it to be dated looking, and cheap. Hallmark Card Studio Deluxe 2003 offers the same designs as the cards you see at the store. The images print great, and you can customize the text. I get really heavy, textured card stock and fool a lot of people. I just wish these card programs would print the colored backgrounds to the edges of the paper (the only giveaway of a homemade card). Both of my sisters-in-law bought it and love it too. I am now looking to get 2004 for some new designs (between the 3 of us, we've lost track of who has sent what :)

2-0 out of 5 stars 2003 Deluxe, Flawed program.
I upgraded from Card Studio Deluxe to 2003 Deluxe for the address book. I do alot of mail merge but when you print lables or envelopes it prints the last name twice instead of Mr. & Mrs. (last name). Going to Sierra support I found many people with the same problem. Sierra says there is no fix and is refunding my money. There are also less options for lable sizes and, when printing envelopes, it prints in the same place no matter how you put the settings. Also, I cannot cut or delete the Hallmark graphics on the back of the cards.
I'm very dissapointed with this product and Hallmark for selling this program with a known flaw and no patch.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great program for all ages
I bought this software program for my 84 year old mother to create cards. She has used many others in the past, and Hallmark Card Studio Deluxe 2003 by Sierra Home is now her ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!

She says its easy to use, and she loves the graphics that come with program.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product
Extremely easy to use and has a great selection of cards and other projects to choose from. I always wait until the last minute to send a card. I can print these onto the Hallmark paper and save myself a trip to the store to find a card. My friends love the cards and always ask me how I was able to personalize the card for them. This product is a must have, especially if you're too busy to get to the card store every time a birthday or holiday comes up. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Better than a lot of comparably priced packages!
Sure, we aren't talking stock photography from Getty Images or Corbis here, but for the price you are paying you shouldn't be under that sort of illusion.

What you do get is a package of more photos than you will ever use in your lifetime of more things than you ever imagined you would want to use in an ad or flyer.

With the work I do as a graphic designer for a corporation I constantly need to have images to put in print media. While I grant that the images provided are not large, they are provided in a high resolution format, and are perfect for creating composite pieces, powerpoint graphics, online graphics and smaller print media. Sure, I'm not going to use them in a major ad campaign - but by using these for the smaller works I free up my budget so that I have the money to use the big stock photography suppliers when I NEED fantastic crisp images.

Worth buying as a suppliment - definitely. Should you rely on this as your only source of photographs - of course not.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good for basic objects
Don't buy this product if you are looking for professional photographic results. Many of the objects are repeated and the photographs are not usable. I use it to produce pictures for preschoolers. They don't mine out of focus pictures. I do regret buying this product.

2-0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality Graphics

Amazon.com Review

CorelDRAW is a leading professional vector graphics application. Now in version 11, it continues to be full of innovative new tools and facilities, though learning how to use them all takes time and patience. Several of the improvements in the new version are designed to ease the drawing process by introducing tools to overcome specific drawing problems.

For example, there are now new "three-point" tools for drawing rectangles, ellipses, and curves. With each you click to fix the first point, stretch out to define an axis or baseline, and click again to complete the object. This is a very useful alternative to the conventional way of drawing these figures, though the original tools are still there, too.

Other new tools include Polyline and Pen. Polyline enables you to create lines and objects segment by segment, where each segment can be straight or curved. Pen is similar to the pen tool in Adobe Photoshop, offering a quick and easy way to create Bezier curves.

Other handy new features include the ability to snap one object to another and to simplify shapes and extract the outline of one from another when they overlap. The Align and Distribute dialog is now "modeless," making it easier to work with when lining up objects.

CorelDRAW 11 introduces Symbols to its repertoire, too. These are not the same as the symbol fonts that the program has offered for many years, but rather a way of saving and reusing drawn elements more efficiently than copying and pasting them. The advantage of symbols is that you can reuse "instances" of them, while only one description is stored in the drawing file. This saves considerable file space, which is particularly important when drawing Web graphics.

Quite a few of the improvements in CorelDRAW 11 help when designing for the Internet. There's much improved support for industry-standard file types, such as SVG and compressed SVG and the ability to include symbols in PDF files, again a space saver. You can also preserve layers in your drawing when exporting to Adobe Photoshop and Corel Photo-Paint and choose to import only specific pages from a PDF.

If you're willing to put in the time and effort required to make the most of this program, CorelDRAW 11.0 will reward you with a sophisticated, complex, and extremely useful design application. --Simon Williams ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great
Easy to use with many useful features. Much better than PSP. Photoshop is better for pros though

5-0 out of 5 stars better than adobe by far!
this one package contains enough for anyone from a beginner to a professional like myself to create and publish for print, web and even video (corel rave 2 included allows flash design and exports to flash and some other video formats). in my opinion it does anything that thousands of $ worth of separate adobe boxes can do with their constant $$$ upgrades(i have have used them all and have no use for them any longer) for alot less. much more intuitive too and the coreldraw module is heads/shoulder better than illustrator. the print engine, fonts and clip art/photos by themselves are worth the upgrade price. unlike the adobe products, it allows imports and exports to just about anything imaginable, including the adobes, autocads, etc. the photopaint (comparable to photoshop) module readily accepts photoshop plug-ins and the whole program now integrates some of the best features from newly-acquired micrografx's highly acclaimed draw and picture publisher. the lens flares alone are something to behold. i've never had any problems sending files to printers, service bureaus, etc. whether they are adobe, quark, pc, or even mac from my pc. coreldraw has been highly overlooked for years as schools only teach adobe on the macs they got deals from, from apple, but this right here my friends, continues to be a certifiable adobe-killer! sweeet! and my mac friends are slowly and unhappily converting too :) don't forget the free wacom tablet from...corel. thank you! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun Fun Fun
I've never had more fun with a computer program than I've had with Funhouse. Just add a face to one of the numerous templates, make a few clicks, and you've got a laught till your cry masterpiece. I especially like to program's ability to automatically match the complexion of the added face to the template. I've been doing projects with pics of my coworkers and they've loved them. They all think I'm a digital genious. Little do they know how easy Funhouse is to use.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for a Laugh!
This program came with my computer. It's fun because you can scan a picture of you or a friend and stick their face on something. The $100 bill looks real at a quick glance, but is says The Bogus States of America. I made one for one of my friends. ... Read more
