1 out of 5 eggsFree EX pack is false advertising

Pros: Free after mail in rebate. Works fine with Windows 7.

Cons: Disks are labeled backwards (Mac DVD is labeled Windows and vice versa). Interface feels very dated. The FREE EX Content Pack is not obtainable as the website to claim it only says "success" after registering (no links provided). Cannot contact SmithMicro without creating a support account first.

Other Thoughts: Don't waste your money. Version 5 may be worth it, but this version certainly isn't.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not run on Windows 7 or higher

Pros: don't know.

Cons: Read the fine print. I bought it seeing that it worked on Windows and Mac, but in the fine print, it only installs on versions of windows up to Vista. Now I have an expensive coaster.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Product

Pros: My son is in college for Art/Graphic Design and he needed a software to 1) replace his very old software and 2) to work with his Intuos 5 pad. This more than fits the need and he is very pleased with it.

I asked my son to give his thoughts: "If you know Photoshop you'll pick this up quickly. Also, it saves each page individually and a matching jpeg individually which is good."

It will also install on Windows 7 64 without a hitch.

Cons: Not really a con but the learning curve can be steep. There are tutorials but like anything worthwhile it takes time to master.

Other Thoughts: Thanks to all the people who answered my question about this product and Windows 7 64.

4 out of 5 eggsSay goodbye to Duo-Shade and dry transfer tones.

Pros: It's nothing you couldn't manage in Photoshop, but it's turn-key in Manga Studio; and the software's ability to import images and convert them to tones is simply fantastic.

Worth the purchase at even original retail price [$299]; although for that you could buy the current version 5-ex.

Cons: I bought it on the Shellshocker sale... then I see it advertised a week or so later on sale again for 20% off of what I paid the week before ~same product, same vendor: NewEgg.

5 out of 5 eggsA+ from a Photoshop User

Pros: I did plenty of research--I played with the trial version of Sketch Pro and found Manga Studio to be a better prospect. I wanted a program that could give me more options to my digital sketching. The software works great with my Cintiq. 4.0 is very similar to Photoshop in many ways--making it easier to pick-up.

Cons: I'm still learning the software at this point. My only con would be the installation phase was irritating. I had to go into the documentation to figure out how to install the screens, etc. This portion of the process should be less cumbersome.
