Serif CraftArtist 2 Professional Editor's Review
There are plenty of image editing tools available for Windows users but the number of scrapbooking apps is not much. However, with Serif CraftArtist Professional you can create sleek looking greeting card, digital albums and scrapbooks without spending much time. The digital scrapbook app also packs in a moderate image editing module and crams in enough features to keep even seasoned designers and print media professionals happy.
You can install Serif CraftArtist Professional on PCs with Windows XP and later editions. To extract good performance from the app, the PC should have powerful CPU and plenty of RAM.
The app takes time to start up, even on fairly powerful computers. However, post launch the workflow is not sluggish. The UI is reminiscent of commonplace image editors. Even though there are lots of panels and settings, it does not look much cluttered. Inclusion of an automatic file saving and recovery feature is quite handy.
Serif CraftArtist Professional comes with myriads of project types including greeting cards and photo books. It is possible to select a predefined template or you can start from scratch. You may choose to let the app place images automatically or do that manually. You can tweak position, size, and rotation of each image the way you want while retaining aspect ratio. However, the app does not let you upload images from online sharing sites and you are limited to local storage.
Serif CraftArtist Professional has some useful features. It comes with a good range of brushes that can be used to make creative designs easily. Styles and effects can be applied to objects and frames. It comes with oodles of embellishments including templates and themes that can be installed separately. It is named Digikits. The Daydream Digikit is bundled with the app and it has few pretty and sleek templates.
The app has a feature rich image editor integrated. There are curves and tint correction. There are several image affects you can tinker with. You do get quick fix solutions for coping with flawed images. It also has a good red eye reduction tool. The inbuilt cutout studio is nifty. It lets you get rid of unwanted stuffs from background in an image fast.
You can print from the app or export your work as PNG, TIF and BMP images. Exporting a file to PDF is also possible. The app also supports import and export of SVG files. In serif website, you can access a few written and video tutorials that are quite helpful.
• Plenty of themes and templates.
• Capable image editor bundled.
• Flexible file export options.
• Good collection of brushes, effects.
• Slow startup.
Serif CraftArtist Professional offers an impressive array of features and matching toolset for graphic design and print media professionals for creating scrapbooks or greetings cards. The UI is sleek and resembles that of image editors to an extent. The image editing tools are really handy and you get plenty of effects and brush sets. Seasoned users can explore creative possibilities offered by the app while beginners can also create pretty looking cards and photo books easily. The inbuilt templates and themes are quite good. Same can be said about image import and export options. Except for the sluggish app start up, there is nothing overtly negative about it.
