My Thoughts
I had the opportunity of reviewing Corel Digital Studio 2010 after I contacted them and offering my services to review some of their products. I wasn’t sure they would answer me and they did. Imagine my surprise and delight when I received Corel Digital Studio.

It took me a while to be able to play with the software. Why? It’s not the fault of the software but more because some changes occurred in the house – my husband got a new PC and I inherited his older one while my old one will go to some friends of ours. So we had three PCs to get ready. Once my “new” pc was organized, I was able to install the Corel Digital Studio 2010 on it.

Then there was the matter of finding time to play with it. You see we are homeschooling our kids and this takes priority on anything else. But finally, one day I sat down, organized all my pictures and played with the software.

When you upload your pictures on the organizer, it takes a while but since we had many years of digital photos on my PC (and we do have a backup), then it was quite normal and expected that the system will take some time to do it. But once it is done, I like the fact that I can go in and see all my pictures organized by year.

The next step was to check out the PaintShop application. And I have found something that I am quite enjoying. The PaintShop Photo Projects is simply fabulous. Our friends, Rachelle & Tyler got married back in December. Not only were we the Maîtres de Cérémonie for the evening but I also took pictures from a different point of view. I guess I was being more artsy while I took some of these pictures. I was planning to burn a CD with the pictures but when I saw the kind of projects I could do with PaintShop I decided to do a slideshow with some of the pictures for them. I had quite some fun to do so. And I was able to change the music selection with an electronic song that I know they would appreciate.   I also did a little one that I will share here with you from a past trip we made in the Canadian Rockies.

I think this is my favorite product inside this package. But mind you I feel I am more gifted with organizing photos and scrapbooking than editing videos… However, this is not the only product that you will get in Corel Digital Studio 2010.

The VideoStudio will help you enhance, edit and share your videos. You can easily drag and drop videos and incorporate them together to produce a bigger video. The DVD Factory will help you create and burn DVDs with motion menus. Finally, the WinDVD will help you to backup your photos and videos as well as organizing your digital media. You can also convert your videos for your iPod, iPhone and other mobile devices.

Corel has created a wonderful product for families who want to do more with their digital pictures and at home movies. It is a product that I am recommending to anyone who is wondering what else could be done with the photos they have. Why not create some slideshows for the grand-parents or your extended family. It could become a wonderful gift every year to show them what happened in your life during the year.

Corel Digital Studio 2010 can be purchased at any store where you can get software. But it is also available directly from Corel. For a limited time, the product is 59.99$ instead of 99.99$. Click here to purchase it.
