Whether you're optimizing digital photographs, creating sales materials or putting together a slideshow presentation, there are many excellent design programs to choose from. Staples stocks several titles from well-known software publishers such as Adobe, Corel and Serif that are affordable and simple to use right out of the box.

Easy-to-Use, Professional Quality Graphic Design Software
Graphic design titles offer easy installation from a CD or downloadable package so users can get right to work on a variety of projects. Entry-level users and experienced professionals alike appreciate clean and customizable workspaces that can be adjusted to suit different workflows for photo editing, vector illustration, web and print design.

Many programs come with the same filters, brushes and retouching tools as high-end commercial software without the steep learning curve or expense, making them a dependable and economical choice for everyday tasks and professional applications. Several titles support widely-used Adobe file formats for flexible management of documents across different operating systems and design programs.

Create Eye-Catching Invitations, Digital Scrapbooks and More
Avid crafters, busy parents and restaurant owners find graphic design software a terrific tool for filling a variety of needs. It's simple to create unique greeting cards, flyers, menus and calendars that are sure to attract lots of attention and sales. Using original photography, corporate logos, clip art and stock images, everyone can customize a project to their liking. Choose from a broad selection of one-click photo effects, image correcting filters, font styles and other advanced features to make stunning scrapbook pages, promotional signs, event programs and more.

Helpful Tutorials and Templates to Get You Started
Those new to graphic design can learn the ropes with video tutorials and help documents that demonstrate the basics and advanced features of each program. For additional efficiency on the job, busy students and project managers can choose from several customizable design templates to quickly put together slideshows, report pages and pie charts, saving them time for other important tasks. Many software companies also offer helpful online communities where fellow users share hints and tips to get the most out of a program.

How Do Non-Artists Benefit from Using Graphic Design Software?
A lot of design software can meet users at their particular skill level by offering simplified controls, basic menus, tool tips and pre-designed project templates for entry-level consumers, plus advanced tools for skilled designers to create their own assets and original artwork. As skills improve, users can play around with more robust tools and custom controls.

Is Design Software Compatible with a PC? With a Mac?
Check a product's information page or packaging before choosing the best graphic design software for your system. Many titles are only compatible with PCs running the Windows operating system. However, select titles are compatible with both PC and Mac environments, and there are software titles designed specifically for the Mac as well.

Can Finished Projects Be Taken to a Local Printer?
Yes, many local and online print providers can handle design documents exported to the Adobe PDF/X format, whether saved to a flash drive, floppy disk or uploaded to a printing website. A PDF file retains the original document formatting so everything prints just as designed, no matter which software is used. Some printers can accept a range of additional file formats as well.
