Editors' Review

+

In recent years it's become very easy to create custom greeting cards, calendars, brochures, photo books, and more all from the comfort of home. Numerous applications exist to help users create professional-looking projects with very little know-how. ArcSoft Print Creations is one of these, combining multiple design tools into one application. Unfortunately, although the program itself is free, most of the templates it offers must be paid for if users want to print them without a watermark.

The program's interface is attractive and intuitive. The home screen allows users to select whether they want to create a new project, open an existing project, or order photo gifts. When users choose to create a new project, a screen opens allowing them to choose what kind of project they want. There are a lot of options to choose from: greeting cards, posters, scrapbook pages, and more. The Funhouse options are especially interesting; these allow users to insert their own faces onto animals, cartoons, and holiday-themed images. None of the program's templates are exactly groundbreaking in terms of design, but for the most part they are attractive and professional-looking. The program comes with an HTML Help file that does an adequate job of explaining its functions. Overall, we think that ArcSoft Print Creations is a good choice for users who like to have fun with their photos, but those who are expecting free templates are bound to be disappointed. Even the templates that are listed as free in the interface end up with a watermark when they're printed, and we had a difficult time even figuring out how users are supposed to pay for templates if they want to. ArcSoft could definitely stand to be a little more upfront about all of this.

ArcSoft Print Creations installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.
