    I purchased this Primaster Platinum because I have a prior version. It is Primaster Platinum 10. The reason for purchasing this New version is my existing computer had to be replaced and my other version would not work with Windows 10. I was so excited to get this home and see what was new for me to find. I enjoyed using my Platinum 10 version. BUT ! to my dismay I am very disappointed! Not people friendly ! It says 165,000 clip art which the majority has to be repurchased !? I already bought it , then the type and style of clip art is disappointing( photos of a person in different styles of clothing and most of the clipart is a different culture than where I am. I just wanted simple .) I have no problem with other cultures and I like to learn of them but do not omit mine or change it to fit the world's view. I was going to return it but I live to far away so if I am to make something I will continue to struggle my way through this new version. Where are the instructions to use this! Not all people can learn without a book to guide them while they go step by step to be able to succeed. I have never written a bad review before and it really saddens me to do so now.

    It's been a while since I've updated my old faithful Broderbund Print Shop so with some rewards to burn I purchased this and put the box on my desk. 3 or 4 weeks later when I wanted to create a greeting card, I loaded this up on my newer Windows 10 desktop hoping to avoid a trip to the Hallmark store. This software was so frustrating to just start up and whip out a card. Now to be fair, I didn't do any research or study any tutorials or whatever to help me get that first card done. I gave up after about 15 minutes and went to Hallmark. I assumed that since I had multiple Broderbund programs in the past that I'd pick right up on this one. Nope. Not even close. I'm giving this 3 stars because when I do get around to learn this program, I'm hoping to be as happy with it as I have been with previous programs. But to pay for software like this these days I expect it to be pretty user friendly and in my 15 minutes of experience with this one so far, that's not the case.

    First purchase I've regretted from Best Buy

    I bought this software simply to print labels without having to go online and sign up for anything to download templates. This software claimed to be able to do just that as long as you install the approximately 1 gigabyte of extra clipart and template data. I did that and still it would not let me do anything without going online first. I couldn't even create my own template from scratch without going online. I purchased this specifically so I could print offline. Bottom line: This purchase was 100% useless to me unless my goal was to waste a couple hours of my time, $20 and about a gig of hard drive space. Very annoyed by this kind of garbage software.

    I contacted Broderbund to find out if my Printmaster 18 would work on Windows 10. I was told it would not. Purchased this new version only to discover that it will not accept any of the work I've done over the last several years using the previous versions of Printmaster. What were you thinking??? Seriously??!! I don't know anyone that would want to start from scratch with all of their graphic work - business cards, posters, postcards, etc!!!! The kicker is, my old version works fine on Windows 10. Save your money and let Broderbund know you will not be doing business with them in the future. One star because they won't let you do no stars!!

    I have used Print Shop for years, but with my computer upgrade to Windows 10, the newest version on Print Shop was not highly rated. Print Master was rated higher, so I purchased that. I guess I would like to see what was wrong with Print Shop, because Print Master is very glitch. The biggest problem I have is that the "program" won't fill the screen. I can drag the corner handle to fill the screen, but the layout fonts do not increase so you have to get a microscope out to read the tabs. I have called support, reloaded the software and made other adjustments to no avail.

    Not as good as the old Printshop 2003.

    I finally decided it was time to replace my old favorite Printshop program which was a 2003 version. I wish that Printmaster platinum was as user friendly and am very disappointed. The contrast and size of the Windows within the program make it difficult to see and it is sorely lacking in clip art without going to an online link which takes longer and is confusing. I find myself not wanting to use it at all and I used my old Printshop software all of the time.

    Too difficult to use

    I purchased Print Master , because I didn't need anything elaborate so I thought this basic software would be good for me. It was very difficult to navigate, and perform simple task with Print Master. So I repurchased the Hallmark Card Studio 2016, I could not believe how simple Hallmark is to use. There are so many things wrong with Print Master I won't have enough room to tell you about it. It really does make a difference stay with the big guys, Hallmark.

    Just updated my mac to the newest operating system- Sierra and has been somewhat difficult to find software that is compatible. This one is and allows even for downloads of the product, if you do not have an external drive. A lot of clipart comes with the program with the possibility of even more (in-app purchases), if desired. Looking forward to exploring more of the already provided templates in satisfying teacher needs.
