Flexibility

What does the software allow you to do? Can you add more from other programs or are you limited to adds  from that one store? Can you add on elements from other programs? How can you export your layouts to your printer or email it to other friends? Make sure that you are comfortable with the way that the software works before you make your choice.

Hardware Requirements

Make sure that before you make your purchase, that the software is compatible to your computer. Make sure that you have enough Ram, hard disc space and processing power to make use of the program.
