Hi all
I am 2 weeks new to Mac and loving it so far. I am looking for software for creating calendars, birthday cards, banners and such. I was using a old version of Corel Print House on a PC (which has died..LOL ) it needs to be easy so my kids can use it as well. Also something that can crop out faces and place on other photos is a favorite in this house. I looked at Adobe Photoshop Elements 8.0 but not sure if it is to much.

Any comments would be appreciated.

Thanks
Nomad

I have elements 8.0 and it's great. I use it almost everyday. If you can afford it, get it...no point in paying less for a product that also does way less.

Lightroom is good too but more money than PSE..

Elements IS a great product, but it's not really what the OP wants.

Luckily, I have a FREE solution for you, nomad.

Portraits and Prints used to cost $30, but the authors have decided to make it free since they don't really want to support it anymore. Still works great on the latest everything and likely will do for years to come, and does *exactly* what you're looking for 100x better than Corel ever did.

Enjoy!

What a great program Portraits and Prints is. Been using iPhoto since getting my mac and recently aquired Elements but P&P looks like a great addition to my app portfolio so many thanks for the link.

I disagree and clearly the OP did. We didn't know everything he needed, so why suggest something to cover the minimum and disagree with a product that does SO MUCH more?

No they didn't. Read their post again -- "the free program works well (meaning Portraits and Prints) *and* I bought Elements 8". Seems very clear to me.

so why suggest something to cover the minimum and disagree with a product that does SO MUCH more?

Portraits & Prints is not intended to replace or compete with Elements, but Elements DOES NOT have greeting/birthday/holiday card templates, which is what the OP was looking for. Portraits & Prints, on the other hand, does.

P&P + Elements covers what the OP was looking for -- according to them.

chas, you missed the point of my previous post, the OP DID disagree with you about ELEMENTS, since he DID buy it. The product you suggested supplements elements, it doesn't replace it.

Either way, we both helped him! :)
