We found the program confusing at first, and we were relieved when we finally ran across the Initial Setup menu, which explained things to some extent. The program offers several options for ringing up purchases, … Read more

While this product does a great job of breaking the process down to its elements, more experienced photo editors will probably want more than what it has to offer.
