Put it on your holiday list

This is not software for highly-skilled pros. In fact, if you have some elaborate editing plan in mind, you are going to be frustrated by it. It isn't designed for you.

If you want to be able to put together fun family videos and slideshows, share your hobbies on YouTube, or add video to your blog, this is exactly what you need. Digital Studio lets you make simple edits and fun effects quickly and easily.

I had a little trouble with installation -- screen freezes and problems with importing pictures -- but I use Vista, which is inclined to be skittish with new software, so I don't think this is a problem with the software. Once we got past the initial challenges, I was able to create movies (that's what you click to start: "create movies") in minutes.

Import images from your computer or your camera. Drag them into the media tray in the order you want. Choose a style from either the fun pre-made ones or the simple styles that let you make your own projects from scratch. Now tell Digital Studio to make the movie, and you've got your video. Push one more button to upload your project to YouTube or other social media sharing sites.

Once you're comfortable with the process, you can add soundtracks and voice overs, change transition styles, add titles, and edit your videos and photos. Digital Studio is built for immediate success, but there are enough options to keep creative people amused, too.

The suite includes the video editor, photo editor, a media player with bookmarking capability, and a DVD maker. You can make photo cards and albums, home movies for the family, or let the kids take a turn and make impressive class projects. Print out labels, too. It seems like a perfect holiday gift for the family, but you might want to order it early so you can make holiday gifts with it instead.

I decided to take extra time to review this product, because my immediate reaction to it was dislike. I got this product from the Amazon Vine program a month ago, and played around with it, and I immediately disliked it. I had a knee jerk reaction to write a 1-star review for it, and throw it in the trash. But, because software can be multi-layered, and sometimes if you are patient with it, and give it a chance, you can gel with it, and suddenly "get" it -- so I decided to give it a chance. Sadly, …

I will start this by saying I am a home user and by no means a professional. However, I have been using photo editing products for years and unfortunately am partial to another. With that said, I am always looking for new and different ways to edit pictures etc.   I loaded this when we received it and it took FOREVER! Also, it locks up so frequently that I hesitate opening it.  The photo editing was very basic and might be good for first time editors, but anyone with a little …

Video and picture editing programs are great, trouble is trying to find one in the vast sea of them, well Corel is always a good brand and I haven't been disappointed with it yet. This is a fun and easy to use program that lets the user tweak and perfect pictures without doing major surgery on them. I haven't used the video edit yet but for pictures this a real pleasure to use.

New from Corel is Digital Studio 2010, a unique way to easily store photo albums and create dynamic videos from your camera to your tv screen. Included programs: Paintshop Photo Express, Video Studio Express, Win DVD (in my opinion, the best program in the bundle) and DVD Factory which offer photo and video editing, sharing and DVD playback together in one dynamic experience. Innovative techniques allow you to capture and enhance photos, even add music.     Easy-to-use tabs make …
