I am by no means a professional photograher but I love taking pictures and have loads of them.  If you were to come to my house you would find a few photos albums with pics we collected over the years.  Boy! what memories, but now today, in this digital phase you will find them on my computer or CD’s.  For the most part they just sit there.

 I have always wanted a photo editing software for quite a while now and recently I got the chance to try out theCorel Digital Studio 2010.    I was excited because this means I can now play around with all the photos I have hanging around. – I get to do fun and creative stuff!  I was excited to see what I can come up with.   Sounds fun, right?  With the Corel Digital Studio, you can edit photos, video, burn cds and dvds and playback on your computer.

I’ve found the Corel Digital Studio software to be very fun.  I love my little creations I’ve made and it’s easy enough for a beginner like me.  My husband played around with it for a while and even my two boys had a chance to show off a little creativity.  It’s really something the whole family can enjoy.

So you might ask- What are some of the features of the Corel Digital Studio 2010?  I’m glad you asked. 

The Corel Digital Studio 2010 comes with:

PaintShop Photo Expresswhich lets you quick fix photos and crop, rotate, sharpen, remove red eye, adjust brightness, make photo books, slideshows, calendars, collages, cards, and e-mail photos, put them on DVD, or upload to Facebook or Flickr.
VideoStudio Express again uses quick cut to view and trim your videos, correct brightness, improve shaky video, turn video clips into movies using templates with menus, soundtracks, transitions, and titles.  You can also edit burn and share high definition video clips.

, Windows, Media, M2T, and M2TS in either standard or high definition.  You can also bookmark your favorite scenes!QuickTimeuses Dolby Digital audio support and playback for DVDs and video files and can be watched with DVD-Video,

DVD Factoryenables you to back up photos, videos and music on cds or DVDs.  You can choose a professional style and add chapters, music and photos to each DVD.  Another feature is that it enables you to copy media to your iPod, PSP, and mobile phone and upload to YouTube, Facebook, and Flickr.
Corel did a great job creating a software suite perfect for all of us beginners that lack the time to truly learn the process of using more complicated and elaborate programs which is why I love this software.  You can actually do a lot with it and most of all its EASY to use. I have really enjoyed using it and I am still learning.  It’s just exciting to learn something new and be able to share it with your family and friends.  My next project… I want to make a photo book or a calendar.  I’ll really think I’m hot stuff then. Corel did a great job creating a software suite perfect for all of us beginners that lack the time to truly learn the process of using more complicated and elaborate programs.

Since I’ve shared what I like about this software, I guess I should share what I didn’t like.  Umm. Really there isn’t anything I did not like.  It is a really cool product!  If you are like me and like taking pictures, editing, and creating some fun art then you should enjoy Corel’s Digital Studio 2010.
