It is still a little complicated for me but I have learned a few things that I wasn't sure of and it was basically self explanatory, even to me. I had fun with photos and had no problems.


I'm not real familiar with all the different programs within a program, but I know to be carefull of what I'm doing.


Hey! it's an adventure to me. I enjoy finding new things. I just need to read lot,and have fun while I'm learning.

I thought it ran just fine, and I really liked the way the white HD Sportster turned out. I did have to fool with it a little. But, I just felt like that was me not knowing. da!

Full Specifications

What's new in version 9.26.1590
  • This release includes technical previews of Direct2D, DirectWrite and DXGI 1.1. Direct2D is a hardware-accelerated, immediate-mode, 2-D graphics API that provides high performance and high quality rendering for 2-D geometry, bitmaps, and text. The Direct2D API is designed to interoperate well with Direct3D and GDI. DirectWrite provides support for high-quality text rendering, resolution-independent outline fonts, and full Unicode text and layout support. DXGI 1.1 builds on DXGI 1.0 and adds several new features including support for Direct3D 10.1 command-based remoting and support for synchronized shared surfaces.
  • XNA Math provides developers a cross-platform native-code method of generating SIMD instructions without having to resort to special case code. Based on the Xbox 360 SDK's Xbox math library, this set of headers supports the most common vectorized math operations used in graphics and animation. The implementation supports Windows 32-bit (x86) and Windows 64-bit (x64) targets using SSE2 intrinsics, and is fully cross-platform with the optimized Xbox 360 XDK version.
  • This release includes several improvements to XAudio2, xAPO, and xWMA.
