Serif CraftArtist Compact Makes Digital Scrapbooking Addictive


When you're happy with your creation, CraftArtist Compact will export to JPEG, PNG, Windows Bitmap or HD Photo. For the PDF export option, again you'll need to upgrade to CraftArtist Professional. Other benefits of CraftArtist's Professional version include blend modes, cutout studio, cutting machine support, mask layers, punches, and scissors; in addition to being able to create your own digikits, brushes, filters, and stencils.

CraftArtist is an easy way to create unique designs with themed clipart, backgrounds, and brushes. If you love the free digikits available it's a great deal, but can get pricey very quickly when you start buying other digikits. That said, CraftArtist is an easy-to-start program that grows alongside your skill level, plus it's tremendous fun ... and a little addictive.
