Hi Daniel

 

I just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with Essentia FotoArt.  I have put a wedding album together for my partner's daughter as a trial - 300 images into 110 pages.  Lovely.

 

I had been using Photoshop for putting together photobooks, from holidays, birthdays, etc, and, in general, it was taking about 10 pages an hour.

 

I was able to do 100 pages in 4 hours yesterday, including some false starts, and a couple of support 'calls' to PXLSoft.  They phoned me back within about 10 minutes, and answered my query fully.  I did discover a 'bug', but I found a workaround, so that was great. (For your interest, with a second monitor, the full selection of editing tools is not displayed (eg the black/white conversion icons).  But if you start it on the laptop screen, use it in editing mode, and then move it to the second monitor, it's quite happy.  It must be something to do with the way/timing that it picks up the screen resolution.)

 

I've now submitted the draft to Blurb for printing, but have no doubt that it will be more professional than I could have achieved with just CS4.  The built in masks are excellent, and once the PXLSoft chap told me how to convert the backgrounds into images that I could modify, I was a happy bunny.  I didn't use the templates much, as I found them a bit limiting.  I had more landscape shots than portrait, and a lot of the templates seem to have portrait frames.

 

Thanks again for the excellent service.

Kind Regards

Marilyn

 

My Reply:

Marilyn - Thanks for a great review.
I think all your limitations would be overcome by upgrading to Gold.
Best wishes - Daniel.
