This is a rather encompassing software package. I was able to immediately edit photos, capture video and edit the video. This looks like this drastically simplifies the steps needed to create a video trailer for one of my books. The red eye removal in the photo section worked easily and well. The interface is reasonably intuitive. I was able to do everything I tried without resorting to (gasp) reading any help files. It is not a speed demon. My only criticism is that things load slowly. The video template was so slow I thought it wasn't working. Outside of that, it seems like a very good Swiss army knife type of program that will enable the average user to do a multitude of tasks. I don't see this as a professional grade program but it is user friendly enough and sophisticated enough to appeal to the average user in need of graphic tools. It is a lot of program for less than $100.00.
