I love this product. I have the Printmaster Gold on my desktop, but needed something for my laptop and lost the installation disk. I decided to upgrade to a newer version and picked the Printmaster 16 platinum. I just love, love, love it! I have made photo buttons, gift bag cards, posters, a brochure, birthday cards, Father's Day cards, and some Thank You notes since receiving the product. I loved my Printmaster Gold program, but this new version is that much better. My friends love the items I've been able to make and have begged me to make things for them as well. I've also been able to create advertising pages for a local printer and email the files over to go straight to print and the books have come out awesome. This is just an incredible product to have on my laptop. I use Windows Vista. I wasn't sure if it would work well, but it's great!

In spite of the fine features of this product, these are things I would like to see corrected:

Among the awesome number of images are some reproductions of botanical prints and fine paintings such as seascapes and still-lifes. The images cannot be blown up enough for quarter-fold-card fronts without loosing sharpness.

The thumbnail sketch in the "My Projects" screen can have a different name than the image file, which might happen when you rename the thumbnail. And when you delete any thumbnail, you do not delete its file.

The "My Projects" screen seems a bit glitchy -- it set up two sections for quarter-fold cards and two for posters, interspersed them, and left long blank spaces when I tried to reorganize the screen. I would like to be able to edit this screen.

When saving projects, I cannot find a way to change the default path to put them in a folder of my preference.

Conclusion: great program, biggest problem, IMO, is the lack of sharpness of some of the best images.

I ordered this software for printing wedding invitations, save the date cards and christmas cards. The end results were fantastic, but getting there was frustrating. The software limits the template media size and does not show the exact size on the first step of the creation. Also, no instructions came with the software. It would have been helpful to read through instructions or tips rather than searching in the software.

The final product for the cards and invitations looked professional, which was excellent. The photocards turned out fabulous as well. Another con was that every picture incorporates a border, no matter what. Very frustrating.

This is great desktop publishing software. I've been a PrintMaster user since the late '90s and this is just one of those rare programs that actually gets better as the versions progress. The install was quick, easy and did not upset my computer or other programs. You won't be disapointed.

The product came with absolutely no instructions for installation , what each CD contains or how to use it. Getting tech help is difficult and it is difficult to use.

I found the Printmaster Platinum 16 to be relatively user friendly, even for those who haven't tried using similar products before. But I also found it frustrating to frequently change the CD while attempting to create a card because the particular image needed was stored on a different one. I have changed the CD up to 3 times just for one card. I've used other printing programs where all the images were stored on the same CD, which was much more convenient. I'm not sure if 4 CD's are used because there is such a large volume of images available. I did enjoy having many more graphic images to select from than I'd had in the past.

This is determinately the best version of PrintMaster that has been released. I've compared it with earlier and later versions, and this one has the most features and content. To have this running on a modern operating system, I installed this on the newest version of Linux Mint, using PlayOnLinux (an enhanced front-end for WINE), and it works great. This may be an alternative for those wanting to run this on operating systems newer than Windows XP or Vista.
