    Needs trick if you’re previous Magix user Bought this program at Fry’s Electronics the other day for $20. Just installed it, so no major review just yet.But, as a previous Magix customer who has already registered other programs with Magix, this one wouldn’t register properly (nor update properly) out of the box. Apparently, Magix bought Xara and the two companies aren’t quite synched yet.So, the trick: When it doesn’t recognize your Magix username password during online registration, simply start the process again as if you didn’t have an account. Then simply use the same info you used in the past to register your Magix products.After that, do the online update and patch the product. (You won’t see updates for this product in Magix’s support page, like you find with Movie Edit Pro. Again, the two companies aren’t synched yet.)Update 04/10/2013.I’ve read the manual and goofed around with it a bit. Like a lot of Magix’s software, this seems very powerful and, like my brain, I’ll probably only use 10% of its power.Having said that, understand that it is not a conventional bitmap editor. Some things, like simple cloning, seem too complicated. Also, I can’t find a “magic wand” mask tool. Seems you have to hand draw all masks. (That is, no “intelligent” mask.) So it’s my old Corel Paint Shop Pro X for that. Xara acknowledges this, and has a way to link your favorite bitmap editor program to Graphic Designer.It does have an automatic “fix it” button for images. But I find Corel’s Paint Shop Pro’s works better.As for mixing vector graphics and bitmaps, this is where this program should shine. But its interface seems as daunting as the GIMP. So for me, for now, I’ll be using Corel’s Presentation program in . (For info about Presentations, see my 4 star review there.)Bottom line: An interesting program, powerful. But most of us don’t have any real need for it and can probably do what we need to do better and easier in other, more familiar programs.

    Exactly as described Product gave me the exact capability I was looking for in the software. It may be a slight bit complicated for someone without a comfort level with things like presentation building, etc. Perfect for me, though.
