Great Software Tools (Review)

Great Software Tools provided me with a free copy of Graphics Toolbox to review as part of the TOS Crew. Graphics Toolbox is a powerful, multi-purpose graphic software program used by people of all ages. Students, hobbyists and professionals alike enjoy using the fast and easy tools to create expert results for their daily graphics needs. Once you learn how to create and control the graphics in your life, the door will open to your imagination and there will be no turning back!

I have absolutely NO previous graphics experience. So to say that I was out of my element with this product is an understatement. The vendor sent several great links for training videos and I watched them and followed along and to be honest, I still had a hard time getting the ball rolling. After several failed attempts and lots of frustration, I was able to create this layout below; although I'm not sure why the lettering came out weird looking when I posted it here.

For someone like me, who doesn't have a graphics background, this product is going to take some getting used to. Learning as you go can be frustrating, but hands on learning is the best way to retain information. Once you figure out the in's and out's, your possibilities for uses truly are limitless.

If you'd like to view one of the training videos, to get an idea of how the program works, click here.
