I really want to try digi stamping, but I'm not graphics program savvy (to put it politely)... Does anyone here use Stampin Up's MDS? Their website says you can only use their downloads in MDS, but can you use other companies' images in MDS? Is there another program you like better that is very user friendly/easy to learn?
I use Studio which is a free program really meant as a design program for cutting machines. But you can do so much to your digital images with it. There are plenty of tutorials on UKScrappers on how to use it.
Kandmwilson & BathBelle's suggestion for those programs will both work great for digis. If you already own MDS and are comfortable using it, you can bring your digi stamp into it to resize, flip, or rotate into the program and print from there.
MDS2 is a great program. You can use other images in it, and you can also use the MDS downloads in other programs. You don't have to have MDS to use them. That said, you can try MDS2 free for 30 days. It will give you a peek at what it can do. You can also visit My Digital Studio for help and information. There are so many videos and samples there.
Have fun creating!

another newbie question about digi's...... once you've purchased them and they are on your computer, can you put them on a cd? my kids use my computer and we've had to "fix" it like three times(lost everything that i had saved on it, lol )..... and if i understood right, you can use word to size and whatever else you want to to do digis? this is something new for me to learn..... sighs!!!
Ok, I am also a computer dinosaur.. I am on a computer all day at work...but this detailed techy stuff throws me. I ordered the 30 day free trial of MDS today....
Is that going to come into my inbox as a download or a disc in the mail?
I watched a few videos but that was not made clear. Unfortunately I do not have a catalog nearby.
If I remember correctly, you should just be able to download it and then install it right away after you go through checkout. If you didn't, then you can probably go into your account and find the link to download it. If you can't find it, give their customer service a call and they can walk you through how to get it installed.
I bought the software; unfortunately, it is time consuming to learn; and even with the purchased Cd; you really need to print off a lot of pages for the learning of the program.
It also, uses a lot of space in my computer documents, so I need to uninstall, I think.
It's too time consuming to re-install each time I use it and put it into a separate folder; if possible. there are about 120 pages in the tutorial on the CD
