HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE – Corel Digital Studio 2010

corel digital studio 2010 box

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.

About Corel Digital Studio 2010

Specifically designed for families, Corel Digital Studio 2010 makes it easy to create something amazing with your photos and videos. With this suite, you can make quick edits to your snapshots, bring your best photos and videos together into a wonderful home movie, or capture your exciting travels of 2009 in a beautiful, professionally printed photo book or calendar. It seems such a waste when we take all these amazing photos and videos during our vacations, only to leave them sitting on our computers and hard drives. These precious memories should be enjoyed and shared!

With a beautifully designed interface and easy-to-use tools that are common across the suite, Corel Digital Studio 2010 is great to accompany that new computer or digital camera for mom, dad or computer savvy kids.

And if you are looking for a way to make the holidays easier and more meaningful, Corel Digital Studio 2010 can help solve this too. There’s no need to stress about finding that perfect gift for the loved one who has everything. Now you can make wonderful, personal gifts that will be treasured long after the holidays are over. A gorgeous photo book or calendar, a photo and video DVD, or wonderful, personal holiday cards — it is all easy and affordable with this software. A DVD costs only the price of the disk. Professionally printed calendars start at $14.95 and photo books at $28.95 (and you can upload and order them right through the software).
