Rude Customer Support 11/13/2012 6:09:50 PM

Pros: N/A

Cons: No friendly customer support. No Support on registering for extra bonuses.. They gave me a used Serial number. It worked fine until I realize it was a trial version.

Overall Review: I retract my last review. I would give this Product a ZERO if it was for the 1 egg limit.

Great program 2/10/2012 11:38:22 PM

Pros: I got the debut version and liked it so much that I then went and bought the pro version.

Cons: Takes time getting use to

Overall Review: I am running a system with a i7 8gb ram with windows 7 64bit and I have not had any issues with the program.
I bought the program through smithmicro almost a year ago.

Tilt, Rotation supported 7/13/2011 3:10:21 PM

Pros: An art program that supports every feature of the Wacom Intuos4 with the additional 6D pen.

Cons: No cons at this price.

Overall Review: I have both this and the pro version which has obviously more options. At 50 bucks for every wacom intuos 4 ability supported including 6D? You're kidding yourself if you don't think that's a deal.

On my windows 7 with english as my default, I've had no problem with typing in japanese, hebrew, or english. (Region changing? Why would you need to do that?)

No Customer Support... 3/7/2011 6:26:05 AM

Pros: The Program works with Windows 7, sort of.. The box art is pretty.

Cons: If you have EVER changed the region for non-unicode programs to anything and changed it back, NONE of the "materials" will work. So, if you have ever installed a Japanese game (for instance) and ran it- when you go to use the speech bubbles or backgrounds it stops responding.

Overall Review: I filed an online petition with SmithMicro Software once a month for 3 months and have heard nothing... I attached DxDiag.exe files and all tech info relevant to my issue, but the program is clearly 32-bit that runs in emulation for 64-bit. This makes it a mess to debugg and I can guess why their customer support is avoiding me! lol **Long story short: if you are a kid looking to make n u d e sketches of Sonic the Headgehog characters for get this! you will love it! If you are an advanced user that knows what a non-unicode program is, if you are running a 64-bit system, or if you want drawing tools that work better than MS paint.. get CS 4 or CS 5**

good 9/30/2010 10:11:21 AM

Pros: Very high quality system good progamming apeealing and is easy to make higher quality pictures

Cons: I have edited pics for 9+ hours and you will never get them to look as good as the box does, it is very easy to acidentally minimize a needed box and it will not be able open again be careful... the only fix ive found to this is to start a new story/page

Overall Review: The -1 egg was because I bought this at a tech showcase where they were showing the ex version... the man showing it kept telling me that this version woud have less features than its predecessor but when I asked which he kind of dodged the question... Compared to the other this one is BLANK!!! its like looking at a picture and then a blank peice of paper in comparison, still this is 10x better than photoshop and cheaper... All in all knowing what I know now I would still buy them again
