4.0 out of 5 stars A Niche Market 12 Mar 2010
By Bob TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Although it does everything it states on the box I found this a strange programme, this is not to distract from what it does however this is really virtual scrapbooking as I have always used scrap books to hold mementos of holidays etc things like admission tickets or an emu feather so they can be used to relive memories. This programme produces scrap book pages but unless you are going to use the embellishments etc to cut out and stick in a real scrap book the effect is lost.
This is version 2 and as I have not tried version 1 I can give no information on how important the changes are although from the manual they do not seem significant enough to warrant buying this programme as an upgrade.
Like all Serif product a full instruction book is available in this case included in the package, also unlike most companies they give you at least 30 days to return it if you do not like it.
Now what it does:-
It is supplied with a number of themes which consist of backing papers and numerous embellishments, picture frames, brush shapes etc etc each of these are fully customisable, serif calls these "digikits". Other digikits may be obtained free or purchased from "Daisytrail" which also seems to be owned by Serif; in my package there was a voucher to buy extra digikits.
There is a fairly basic photograph programme which allows some effects and correction of photographs together with adding and removing frames. You can add your own photographs or even complete albums. Although it allows you to import photographs in numerous formats the thing that it does not do is allow "pdf" input and there are many times when I would wish to either include a whole "pdf picture" or part of one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Programme at a great price! 19 Aug 2010
This has to be the best piece of software I have ever purchased. I have always been a fan of Serif software and original bought DSA for making greetings cards but very quickly found out how versatile it is. DSA2 has some very powerful features which make it a 'one stop shop' for creating some fabulous artwork using photos and/or the tools and effects the programme has to offer. It has many features that you find in the high end programmes that cost 100 times more!!! The photolab and cutout studio are just brilliant and very user friendly. I use DSA2 for all kinds of projects from cards to scrapbooks (which I had never done!) to advertising posters and preserve labels. Printing from the programme at 300 DPI produces excellent results and the facility to save work as JPEGS etc. makes light work of producing some superb graphics for the web.

You don't have to use just the digikits that come with the programme or buy from the Daisytrail shop.....all kinds of graphics can be imported into the programme (including digi scrapbooking kits or craft graphics from anywhere else) and you also have the option of making them into your own DSA digikit complete with 'intelligent' photo frames where a photo can be automatically added and cropped to size! There are some great video tutorials (on Daisytrail.com)that will show you the basics of DSA through to more complex projects plus there are plenty of members in the Daisytrail community who are always willing to lend a hand if you get stuck.

The only limitation of this programme is your imagination!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for E-Cards and Invites 19 Jun 2010
By Rosey Lea TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I'm not a fan of home crafts, so I wanted to use this package for creating nice e-cards and invitations. It's pretty much perfect for the job.

The software is very easy to use. Pick a background, add your picture and/or text, then have fun layering on the embellishments fuzzy felt style - flowers, frames, stencil effects etc. You can work free-style from a blank canvas but using a pre-set 'digikit' theme is ridiculously easy and gives lovely results.

As the days of paper cards and notes seem to be over, I'll be using this software regularly to create personalised messages to send by email. (As a note, you can't save pages to jpeg format, only PDF and png.)

I'm marking this software down to 4-star as you need to get your credit card out early on - the software only has 5 rather bland 'digitkits' included, the rest are chargeable from the website (although a handful of free ones are also available). The package didn't come with a printed manual (something I personally like) and the software is a little unstable on my machine (Windows 7) - it doesn't open cleanly and I've had to reinstall it several times. That aside, this is a great fun, easy to use, piece of software.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely templates and so easy to use 30 Jun 2010
By R. WEST-SOLEY TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a lovely creative product, aimed at 'digital scrapbookers', but actually quite useful for anyone who wants to do something interesting with their digital photos. It's completely easy to use - the interface is uncluttered and the main bits and pieces for adding elements to your creations are all in plain sight and not hidden away in menus. That's not to say there aren't higher-end features too, and if you're willing to experiment you'll find tools for adding shadows, textures and all sorts in the program.

There are a number of templates along different themes such as nature, gardens, fairytales and such like - the elements within these themes have a nice 'crafty' feel to them, like colourful buttons you can drag and drop onto your projects, sugar-paper textures shapes and cut-outs of bees, birds and flowers. With very little effort you can create something pretty to print out and use as part of a project - we used it to create a 'family tree' book with old photographs from the family laid out nicely, which was then used as a gift. If you have a decent printer and good quality paper, this software is a great source of these kinds of creative gift. The range of templates does include links to pay-for templates as well as the included ones, but to be honest, the included range is more than enough for the casual user.

There's also an export feature to save your artwork as a JPEG file - ideal for emailing or putting on an Internet page. You can also export as PDF, again, a nice way to share your work electronically with others.

The ease of use and the range of functions make this an ideal piece of creative software for novice and experienced PC users alike - really fun to use, with instant pleasing results!
