"No recommended at all."

September 23, 2013  |  By photopro30

 |  Version: You Select It 1.9.2

Pros

Great concept, auto album feature was huge selling point.

Cons

Simply put, version 2.1 is completely unintuitive, and as a seasoned photoshop and lightroom user, this software (which requires photoshop to work) is a one way track to total frustration and misery. Every issue I encounter, when submitted to tech support is a "future planned upgrade". Auto album feature is great and you can make some changes to the layout easily, but changing what image goes into each location when you drop a template is a nightmare. Two computers failed to be able to output the design in any way via photoshop due to errors leaving me dead in the water with no way to get my labor intensive design out to proof or to album manufacturer. Program has locked up and closed many times in the times Ive used it, and you never know when it will freak out.

Summary

Very unrefined, infested with bugs, and sure to leave you frustrated. Overpriced monthly membership, Support is quick to answer but usually unable to solve the problems. Newer version is loaded with problems. Old one was at least useable. RUN!

"The worst program I have ever worked with!"

July 12, 2012  |  By shanew22

 |  Version: You Select It 1.9.2

Pros

Absolutely none

Cons

Impossible to work with, it simply does not function. Poorly designed interface. Their action icons have no resemblance to their function and the add a page key is right next to auto arrange all images key. Once that button is clicked there is no undo. There is actually no undo at all! Their customer service is atrocious, you could wait days for a response. Spreads do not export properly or sometimes at all. When they do export the images are not lined up properly and you will need to do correction in Photoshop. But then the program is not fully functional with Photoshop CS5 and it doesn't work at all with Photoshop CS6...

Summary

Here's my story:

While at WPPI in Las Vegas I saw the You Select It 2 booth and I sat down with some other photographers to watch the demonstration and hear more about the product. After seeing the program in action and talking with the owners son I was sold! It seemed like the best product ever, it promised to make designing albums simpler and easier and above all quicker. Of course the promise of being able to speed up the process was the best part. So I bought the program at the show price which was a 50% discount. That was back in February and since then I have had nothing but problems from the program itself and their customer service.

I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!!

I am not the only one with these problems I know 3 other photographers that also purchased at the same time as me and they have all of the same issues.

This program never should have been sold it is not even slightly ready for the general market, it wasn't even ready for beta testing. I feel like I have been scammed out of $300 and I feel sorry for anyone that has purchased this at full price. Please stay away from this company and save yourself the hassle and headache.

Summary

YSI 2 Delivers!!! To put it in one word...WOW!!! This highly anticipated update of the already incredible original YSI Album Design Software surpasses all expectations. As Professional photographers we are always on the lookout for ways to streamline our workflow and offer the best in customer satisfaction. Simply put in this hard economy, Quality matters. Martin Schembri and his team of designers have exceeded our expectations.There are many advances in this software so here are some highlights.First, Auto Album. In the YSI 2 Lightroom screen there is a Blue Power Button that takes you to a sorting table allowing you to choose and sort your photos in the order that you wish. Then with the just the push of the Process button,YSI 2 will quickly design the album for you at lighting speed. You then have the option of reviewing and changing your templates to your liking by alternating between different templates located on the right of the screen. How does this help? If you ever had that mental block after a long wedding shoot, just allow the Auto Album to be the creative talent guiding you in the design of your album. Your creative juices are expanded with just the click of a button.Here are some of the many other options available:
Full screen viewing
Drop and Drag features with guide lines
A cleaner interface
Cover options (paper type, packaging, page guides, )
Layers
Converting Albums to Templates ( For future storing of designs)
Change Template Dimensions
Sorting Yes Images or Not sure images
Converting Images to Black And White
Zoom in and Out
Slideshow Viewing
Most important is the new feature of choosing a monthly option of using this software for those photographers that work only during the peak season. Overall I can honestly say that the new and improvedYSI 2 is well worth the wait.This software will save us all time along with allowing us to improve our business workflow.
My recommendation:
Purchase this excellent program to cut your workflow time and enhance your creativity. Well worth the investment
