The sky truly is the limit to your child's imagination, and Kid Pix knows that better than anyone. A nifty Sound Art! feature lets your child paint wild pictures using the sound of his or own voice! And we all know how much bugs play a role in a youngster's imagination. Kid Pix lets them spray scenes with 3D shapes, including bugs and candy, and it lets them get real messy with the use of special effects such as warp, splash and smear. The program even lets children create their own animated movies!
As an added feature that will help your child create their own holiday gifts and enhance the family photo albums, Kid Pix has a photo customization feature that allows you to import photos so that you child can customize them with thousands of stickers, stamps and special effects. Your child can choose from more than 500 backgrounds that can enhance the photos, and from the new creations they can make slide shows, storybooks and much more.

Just don't buy KPD4 until it is supported.
It's best if an adult can help the child know what options are available to them in the program. Very young children can use the program in a basic manner, and older children can learn the finer skills.
It's best to change the resolution on your monitor to 800 x 600 (75HZ refresh rate) BEFORE opening the program. That will open the program FULL SCREEN, instead of smaller if your resolution is normally set higher than 800 x 600.
But then I found that I could not even use the program. When I launch it, I find that the Kid Pix executable completely saturates the CPU on my fairly fast laptop, and takes more than 5 minutes to fully load. And when it does finally come up, it has a constant CPU load of 85-95% for just this one executable, which makes it unusable. So I sent a simple support request to Broderbund, which was to ask them if it was a known issue, and was I likely to see the same thing with the version on CD. (In essence, asking if it was the very same program on CD.)
I won't go into the screen resolution issue that others describe, but of course I was affected by that as well. As it was running on a laptop, changing to a non-native resolution isn't an option. This will be true for LCD monitors as well, where non-native resolutions have horrible viewability. The is presumably because this application has an archaic interface based on fixed size bitmaps, and they can neither scale their user interface nor display it in a window.Read more ›
An e-mail to Encore support simply stated: "Unfortunately this program is not supported on Microsoft's New operating system Windows Vista. If it is still within the time frame of a refund please follow the instructions below." No statement about planned support, no work-around, just an offer to refund if I'd just purchased it. None of this is helpful to me. We have a new PC with Vista on it. My kids need KidPix to do some of their school work projects since that is the software package they are required to use at school.
So if you have a new PC with Vista, or if you are considering getting a new machine and your kids use this software package, beware, because you'll get no help from Encore or Broderbund to get it working.
