Even though there were a lot of negative reviews I bought this product mostly because PC Magazine rated it one of the best (5 stars) and the price can't be beat with the discounts. Here's my take if you read the other reviews like I did.
This program tries to make it easy to start a project (with a walk through wizard) but with any publishing software, you have to know what you are doing. That includes understanding your printer settings, etc. Yes, printer settings can be changed with the program (as with most any software) so it will take some time for inexperienced users to understand how to use it properly.
I must say, this program offers a ton of nice clip art, photos, etc than most other programs in this class. It has 2 CD's full of clipart but you'll need a lot of disk space to install it all. The broadband version of PrintShop accesses the clipart from the internet but with big hard drives available these days, save yourself some headache and buy the regular software, not the broadband one. If you don't have a lot of harddrive space (a few gigs to spare) I wouldn't suggest buying this.
There is no user manual included and the help files are not as in depth as I would like. I find it hard to believe that a complicated program such as this does not have at least a printable copy of a user manual. So be warned, if you not an experienced software user this product might not be for you.
I also saw some negative reviews on photo editing/printing. I haven't tried it so I can't compare. (I use other software for photo editing and printing). There are a lot of great photo editing software packages available. If you're purchasing this for that reason, you might want to look somewhere else.

This is the 4th or 5th version of The Print Shop that I have owned. The last few have been very buggy, causing my computer to freeze up, generally at the worst possible time. But this version is the worst. This one froze up my computer during the install.
I was lucky. Windows XP repaired itself for me. I looked at Broderbund's web site for information on how to get the product intalled and decided not to even try their work around. I've simply run out of patience with a product who's audience is the average user, which demands guru-level computer skills just to install the software.

Having used previous versions of this software, I was disappointed and frustrated by this program. The lack of a manual is a major headache, as searching the help function is like looking for a light switch in the dark. The inability to access and use graphics I've used from previous PS versions is just unbelievable. I've also found numerous bugs in the program, such as the fact that some of the the Avery label templates actually don't work, believe it or not, even when applied directly to the prepackaged PS 15 label projects. The labels print progressively lower until they're off the page at the bottom. I called Broderbund several times, and after 30 minutes on hold each time, they attempted to use the same templates and encountered the same glitch. I got no help, even when the Product Manager was called in. For some graphics projects, I've actually found it more productive to use the MS Word table function with Avery labels - a sad commentary.

I have previous versions of the Print Shop and thought it was good. I purchased PrintShop Deluxe on DVD, Ver. 15 because I couldn't get my old program to work on my new computer with WinXP. The new version seems to rely only on its built in graphics, photos and templates. There are not a lot of tools to do your own thing. I also had immediate problems with the software in scrolling through the fonts -- the program freezes. This is apparently a well-known problem to Broderbund as their "fix" on the web page is to delete several of the fonts. When I asked why (through their customer service site) there was no fix and they thought it was acceptable to delete fonts, they blamed it on XP and then invited me to buy their newest version. I guess I thought that's what I was doing when I was at CompUSA. Now I know...they keep the old [stuff] out there until it's sold out.

Hey Everyone I have this product and I think the Print Shop 15 is the best one they created. I haven't had any problems with any of the print shops programs that I have purchased.
I do all my photo's using this program and the designs are outstanding. I admit it takes time to learn all the ins and outs of it, but all programs you have to learn by trial and error. I have the previous version of it also. Every time the new program comes out I buy it.
The Print Shop is the very first one I bought and I am not sorry I did. Its thanks to the Print Shop that I got so interested in learning what I could create and wow it was awesome. The best part of this fantastic program is you can do almost anything with your photos and so much more.

I learned to change the backgrounds, add special effects, add sounds, add more scenes into the picture and combine them into one. You can crop, adjust brightness, contrast, change background color, and they also put in where you edit your own colors for your text and so much much more.
They have some very beautiful graphics in this program and I constantly work with it every day and I learn more as I go. The best part is watching my photo's take on a whole new look. Its thanks to the Print Shop that I can take an ordinary photo and turn into something that I can treasure. I wouldn't know what to do without my Print Shop program.
I just love this program, the best buy I ever made. I even look for their emails in my emails and its the very first one I open. I can't wait to see what the next one will be if they come out with a new one. They got me as a lifetime customer!
