Greeting Card Studio purports to allow users to create attractive, high quality greeting cards. In reality, this program's lack of features and buggy operation makes us think we'd be better off with construction paper and markers.

The program's interface is basic and looks a lot like many other image-editing programs. The trial version comes with 16 templates, which range from cutesy to tacky. None of them was anything we'd want to give to someone (at least not someone we liked). With a program designed specifically to create greeting cards, we figured there would be options to create a cover image and then put a message inside, but all this program seems able to do is insert your photos into its goofy borders and allow you to print them. We thought we might have better luck creating a card from scratch than with the templates, but every time we tried to select the paper size--the first step in creating a card--the New Project screen closed itself. We tried over and over again, but the program seemed to play a cruel cat-and-mouse game with us, never letting us complete the setup for our new card. Thus, we can't attest to the features in this part of the program, because we were never able to get it to work. The program's built-in Help file is very basic and not particularly helpful.

Greeting Card Studio has a 30-use trial, which is more than enough. It comes as a ZIP file but installs and uninstalls without issues. We do not recommend this program; it doesn't do anything that couldn't be done more easily with another program.
