GIFT IDEA – COREL DIGITAL STUDIO 2010

Hubby is the greatest. When I got myself a new laptop for traveling, he suggested we check into some programs that would make my writing and photography hobbies more enjoyable. Pinched by the economy, I had him postpone this endeavor in favor of paying down some bills.

My desktop became a horror as I uploaded more and more digital files. Progressively slow, slower, and slowest ever, it was time to act. Then he gave me an external hard drive. It really helped. Still I needed a program to help me manage my pictures and create a photo book to show them off.

Corel offered me the opportunity to review its Digital Studio 2010. I am happy I got the chance to try it out. This program has paintshop photo, video studio, and win dvd in one package making for easy transitions from one mode to another. It is easy to edit photos and movies and burn dvd–just no bluray feature. Even a novice like me can take a pic off a phone, flash drive, etc.

It is just like it says. Digital Studio 2010 really does bring photos and videos together in one simple creative experience. I am working on a project right now to share my favorite memories with my kids on Christmas.

The Corel Digital Studio 2010 retails for $99.99.  Corel Digital Studio is available at www.corel.com and Amazon and at leading retailers including Best Buy, Fry’s Electronics and Micro Center. It is compatible with Windows. I like the help it gave me to organize, edit, create, and share.
