Inksaver and Perfect Photo Printer

This package of 2 programmes is offered in the Dreamdirect catalogue that was inside this weeks Radio Times.

Has anyone any experience of them? Are they worth £29.99?

It is my experience that you can usually get the same or better programmes on the net than you can in magazines, and cheaper as well.

Except those that PC Advisor, give away. ;-)

Thanks again MAJ

Any details of where to find the net programmes?

What type of programme are you looking for, Trikie? If you're searching for an ink-saving program, try the tools/services on your printer software, a lot of times they have that option. I don't know what the other program you mentioned is, but if you tell us what it's supposed to do, I'm sure someone will come up with an alternative.

I purchased Perfect Photo Printer from Dream and did not get on with it very well. Cost £19.99. My opinion waste of money. Treated myself to Digital Camera issue 11 (September) £4.99 with this came FotoSlate 2 much easier to use, choose or design your own photo layouts and fill up the page! Good mag as well. Best..Lap..

There are threads here discussing Ink Saver programs. The general conclusion is that, like a lot of "saver" and "accelerator" programs, they are not as good as claimed.
