Hi,

Would you be willing to share what software you use to create your digital scrapbooking kits?

There are a number of designers here and we all use a variety of different programs. It probably varies as much as which programs are used to make scrapbooking pages. [smile]

I know I use a variety of programs offered by Adobe; there is no single program I use exclusively.

I use Photoshop CS6 but I would say the most popular ones that get used would be Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Coral Draw, Paint Shop Pro....these are all graphics programs. They can be expensive to purchase depending on the version but if you have access to a student you can get the student versions cheaper. Also there is on call Gimp that is very similar to photoshop and it' free, but the only downside to this one I believe is that there is no support out there as it's rather old. I did use it years ago and found it good. Hope this helps you somewhat [smile]

I use mainly Photoshop CS3 or 6 and illustrator occasionally and a few extra programs when I want to play lol. Designing kits requires more then playing with them to make layouts and books etc.

Hi McKenzie!  I use Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop CC.  The album templates are created with MM Suite software.

CS6, though I'm SLOWLY, and I MEAN SLOWLY, learning a little about Illustrator, which has its definite advantages. [smile]

CS6. I've taken Illustrator courses, but I don't have it on my PC to play with more. I'd love to get ArtRage too.

Photoshop CS6 and Illustrator. I have another graphic software program I use at times to hand draw elements but I can't remember the name of it off hand. I use the MMS software for all templates for the store.

I use Adobe CC - Illustrator, Photoshop and Bridge at the moment. I also have Silhouette Cameo, Brother Scan N Cut, I use these workspaces to test designs to make sure they work and they are clear and will enlarge. 

I also have the Cricut Workspace. It isn't necessary to have a Cricut to use the workspace. I don't have the Cricut. I like this workspace for its templates. 

I have a lot of CAD software that is unrelated. I have Hatch, Wild Ginger, and a few others. I mention these because I also use them to test design quality.

I have found that the most helpful classes if you want to learn Adobe is Lynda.com. These classes are rather lengthy, but they are very detailed. I noticed a couple of comments about not knowing how to use the software.
