Finding the best graphic design software for your needs.
Whether you’re a professional graphic designer who needs the latest creative suites to complete projects or you’re a novice just starting to explore the world of digital art, Best Buy has a large selection of graphic design software compatible with Mac or Windows computers. Design logos, layouts, cards, and other projects that you can print out with an inkjet printer, send to clients, or save to your hard drive. You can also create design elements that can be used to enhance pictures in photo-editing software. Regardless of which digital art software you buy, you’ll need to check the program requirements to make sure that your desktop or laptop has enough memory to properly run the application. While 8GB of RAM is probably enough for basic art, 16GB is recommended for more detailed and advanced design work.
Getting the most out of your digital art software.
You can have the best graphic design software on the market, but if your computer’s graphics processing unit (GPU) isn’t advanced enough, you won’t be getting the most out of your purchase. An upgraded graphics card allows you to see the full array of colors available, which renders better-quality images. Speaking of stunning visuals, consider buying a top-tier IPS monitor to take full advantage of the technology in your painting software. These monitors are preferred by digital artists for their superior performance and high resolution. Another desirable tool used by professionals is a drawing tablet that connects to desktops for a more realistic drawing experience. Of course, you can always use your wireless mouse to click on paintbrush or eraser tools. At Best Buy, we can help you find the right software and devices that enable you to create digital masterpieces.
