  1. I guess that's another reason for keeping PP
  2. Whilst I would agree the Ap price is a lot lower than Page plus and the other serif programs, I would say that there are many 1000s like me who already have paid for the Serif upgrades over the years not only for PP but for the whole range of serif programs and are satisfied with them would have continued to upgrade. At present, PP does everything I need plus my 8-year-old daughter can use PP with very little help from me. . .So Why Change? Now the beta version has ceased the chances of me ever getting to use AP has ceased also.
  3. Many Thanks after a few tries I manage to work out how to do it using your photo edges. .How did you create the shapes? or did you download from another application
  4. I read jmwellborn comments with great interest nowhere did I say or imply others “where unhappy “ on the contrary many are happy with Apu my comment “judging by forum comments this looks unlikely” was meaning the facilities I would like would not be available on Apu The following statement confirms what I am saying .”. ‘ , and am already reaping the benefits of its close integration with Photo and Designer.. .” there lies the problem your using two other programs to achieve what PP does in one. Ok the two other programs maybe a lot more advanced but it's two programs I don’t need . I would agree the staff and many of the forum members have and are very helpful and what little I have learnt has come from the forum. I have been using PP since PP2 and bought each upgrade’s over the years and would have if there was a PPX20. I am a great believer you should be able to use any good software within 3 days of use, but if it not doing what you want it to do then you look other programs that will. OK I will try and look in the form every so often to see what improvements and updates are available. In the mean time will continue using PPX9
  5. Having tried Apu for a few days it has been come obvious that Apu cant hold a candle to PPx9 I know old habits die hard and many will see the befits of Apu but at this time I PP leaves Apu standing. There are so many facilities that are missing from Apu that PP has such as Studio Cut out, Photo Lab, Photo Edge Effects, the ability to insert images from Scanner, to use third party software from within PP and not being backward compatible with PP, the list goes on. Maybe in time APu may fill my needs, but right and judging by forum comments this looks unlikely. It’s like buying a new car and finding there is no Air conditioning, no Cruise control, no power steering, no Sat Nav, no spare wheel etc. and your old car did If the software works for you then it’s worth paying the price but if it does not even if it was free you have to pass. I will take another look at Apu in a few months and see if there are any improvements needless to say very disappointed after such high expectations.
  6. Ok Will try again or maybe you can supply a section of shapes that I can add images I only want the images to be feathered at the edges BTW I don't have Photo so can I do this within Apu as fed10i has described Many Thanks
  7. Will they be adding the facility to add third party software within Apu as in PPx9
  8. Problem solved took a while, but got there its not easy when you have no manual to look at
  9. That seems to blur the whole image not the edges and not have designed shape's to chose from plus feathered edges
  10. This is a screen shot of PP X9
  11. I have no problem with "Frames" its "Photo Edge Effects" vignetting of images as seen in attached file
  12. Will "Photo Edge Effects" be added to AP
  13. I would like to see when you save a file it would add a number to the file each to you save i.e. untitled(1) untitled(2) untitled(3) or if you save a file with the same name would add number instead the all ready exists I have a screen saver when I save screen it give the image a number
  14. I Agree i sometimes create an object or such as contact details and save to assets on pp9 such as a QR Code then add to the poster or flyer I am creating
  15. Most of the photos I scan are "One Offs" never to be saved . . I make posters and banners for Birthdays, special occasions etc where the the client would give me a photo for me to scan, and produce a Large poster. But I can scan and send image to file on my PC but then maybe have to crop it , whereas scanning within PP I can just scan the part of the photo I need. The other thing missing in AP is the "Photo Edge Effects" which I do use a lot
