4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive January 17, 2011
By Roberto
Platform for Display:PC Disc
I bought Webplus X4 from Amazon. I loved it so much I bought PagePlus X5 and now DrawPlus X4. I'm very satisfied with all Serif's products. I was using Adobe CS4, but since getting into Serif products I don't bother with Adobe anymore except for video editing.

I run an online business on the side, so I have very limited time to learn, create and update my website. DrawPlus X4 is perfect for entreprenuers that use WebPlus X4, because it alows you to add very professional looking banners and flash graphics that take you very close to what you can build in Adobe in a fraction of the time. Time is money so this product can pay for itself very quickly if you're a casual user like me.

I'd say DrawPlus X4 has about 85% of the features you'll find in Adobe. You'll likely never use all the features in Adobe or DrawPlus, unless you're a graphic artist. In that case you're probably sitting infront of a Mac playing with CS5.

The instructions and video tutorials are super simple to learn. I wish they had more pre-made themes, but overall the quantity included is okay and more importantly give you examples of what is possible. The selection of Logo's is impressive in the logo maker. I've designed logo's for other people to rave reviews. If you use WebPlus X4, this is must buy to take your site to the next level. At DrawPlus X4's price, this is an easy buy decision. Worst case you have an amazing logo maker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Illustration Software Package March 7, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Cost effective alternative to Corel Draw and Adobe Illustrator, with no significant sacrifice and BETTER integration and workflow.
I really like the Serief development applications, as they provide great value, tools integratiuon and some perhaps the finest intuitive application design i've seen yet. Those who use WebPlus will recognize the added efficiency and capabilities that Draw Plus provides. If you buy this, also consider getting a tablet such as a Wacom or Aiptek. This will allow you to sketch more accurately than with the mouse.

2.0 out of 5 stars Product is Good, Serif, the company, is not... July 28, 2010
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
I've played with this product a bit and it seems very good for the price point. Go to the [...] website forums and you'll get a good look at the problems. One is that there is a continuing stream of updates.

What is HORRIBLE is the product registration. If you want the freebies you must call Serif registration where the rep at the end of the line will try to sell you lots of things, at a very reasonable price actually. You'll see them under 'extras' at the Serif web site.

The whole discussion takes forever before you get the activation code, and by the way, the product does not function at all until you get it, not even in a trial mode!

I bought the Drawplus X4 reference manual and the templates. Total price $20 + $19 + 7 s/h... OK, my mind did not kick in. Templates? For a drawing package? Any way what I received were the WebPlus X4 reference manual and WebPlus templates. It took an incredible amount of time to get them to agree to exchange the Reference Manual and credit back the templates since they are only good with WebPlus X4. There was supposed to be a bonus pack of paint brushes, but I have yet to get the download link.

Now about the package. I bought it through Amazon market place and received it from [...].

Guess what?

Received from [...]: no box, just a DVD case, in it, a glossy stating I had the Panorama s/w and a users manual and the CD... so Buy.com just sent that and not the boxed software. It did not include the bonus software, it did not include users manual. Another foray through Serif "customer service". I had to send images of the case, the glossy, front and back, the CD and serial number in the case... yada, yada.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good product for the price March 20, 2011
By Valenti
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
I bought this to replace my previous version of Corel Draw, which was not compatible with Win7. It has many of the same features, plus several that Corel did not have. The interface is fairly intiutive, but like most programs there is still a learning curve (and I'm still learning).

As mentioned by another reviewer, there seems to be a wide variation in pricing for this product, and the lower-price version (which I bought) only comes with the disc. In order to register the product (which isnn't necessary for using it), you'll need to call the company and listen to them attempt to sell you the manuals. While the price for the manual isn't a lot, considering most software these days does not come with paper anymore, I do object to being "steered" into calling the company to register, and then listen to a (polite) sales pitch for something that should have been an order option when buying the product to begin with. Not the best marketing strategy in my opinion. Would have preferred a simple check box asking me if I wanted to inlcude the manual for X dollars.

I have had only one crash with the software so far, which seems less buggy than Corel had been. Will do a follow-up review in a few months.

5.0 out of 5 stars JUST GET IT !!!!! November 19, 2010
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
Serif DrawPlus X4 .... is WAY beyond my expectations for a product at this price point!

It has everything you need right out of the gate to import Web screen shots, scans, photo's and clip-art, THEN edit the mess into GREAT-LOOKING ad-copy! The Artistic-effect Text offers great control over outlining and fill, tons of interesting fonts and easy angle and resizing control.

The INSTANT 3D for SHAPES is fantastic, you just pop in their pre-made shapes (hearts, stars, etc.) then right-click to select instant 3D and Voila!, there it is, fully controllable via rotation, size, position, color .... simply AWESOME.

I haven't even tried all the Photo Editing capabilities and Special Effects yet and I'm already Blown-Away by this product.
