    "Does exactly what I needed it to do!"

    March 18, 2012  |   By PTWOB126

    Version: Comic Life 2.2

    Pros

    Pros: Easy to use
    Able to adjust a lot of variables
    Very compatible with other Mac Programs
    Can export to a lot of different types of files

    Cons

    Cons: $30 for a very specific use program (but I think I'll use it a lot more in the future...)

    Summary

    I purchased this app immediately after using it through the trial version. I was doing a video project with Final Cut X and needed an app that could convert a screen shot to a comic book pane. I don't have photo editors loaded on my Mac, so this was one of the only options that was a stand-alone photo to comic converter. It works great and it perfectly accomplished the job I needed. After I finished the video project, I wound up using it for the DVD insert and I can see how it would be easy to do a lot more projects with it, although they might all be similarly themed. No regrets purchasing this.

    "Easy enough to be fun"

    June 11, 2011  |   By akmet

    Version: Comic Life 2.0.4

    Pros

    Easy, but with plenty of options.

    Cons

    None found so far

    Summary

    It a pleasure to find a creative program that lets even novices enjoy enhancing their work. I'm neither a techie nor seriously into graphics, but it's fun to create a collage or add some personality to a picture.

    "Very easy to use. graphics importing is fast and simple"

    February 13, 2010  |   By sherman101--2008

    Version: Comic Life 1.5.2

    Pros

    Ease of use. It is a good supplemental program if you use Print Shop to create cards and other documents.

    Cons

    Some limits on number of templates and extras available

    Summary

    The software does what it says it does with ease and versatility. A good idea, well executed.

    "Does all it says it does."

    December 11, 2009  |   By glindsay

    Version: Comic Life 1.5.2

    Pros

    Easy to use. Lots of imaginative starter templates. Drag and Drop or connect to photo databases - easy.

    Cons

    None, from my point of view.

    Summary

    This program is entirely intuitive. I don't think I've ever read the instructions. Having lots of templates, caption styles and shape styles, Comic Life makes it quick and easy to construct cartoons, comics and other visual media. I find this application most useful to construct special occasion cards or photo packages to email to family, friends and colleagues.

    "Very good, indeed..."

    December 22, 2007  |   By LeoSublimus

    Version: Comic Life 1.4

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I went back to Comic Life upon a re-installation of Tiger - and it worked properly. There had been, most likely, a conflict with other programs installed to result in erratic enough a behaviour for my earlier comment.
    I am actually very satisfied with Comic Life (with a very slight reservation for its relatively strenuous use of processor resources in older computers); even under Leopard this excellent program runs very well, indeed.
    I like to apologise to the developers for the abrupt nature of my reference to the program.
    All-in-all, an excellent program, and quite singular.
