    So much easier!! Review by Mary Wilson
    I struggled trying to make designs and watched tons of videos on Corel and didn't seem to get much better at it. I bought Smart designer and now my customers think I have a professional graphic artist, little do they know it's just me working from my house:) Art is so much easier to do and looks so much better now! I love this program, it's easy and was a bit hard to swallow the expense but it was worth every dollar!! (Posted on 1/12/17)
