Serif software is some of the best available - the free versions are earlier ones and have been distributed in this form for several years when a new one has been released.

The firm also makes what are bargain prices offers on digital cameras and similar items; it hopes that by using its software products you will be impressed enough to buy the up to date versions.

It does tend to cold call asking if you are interested but a polite No Thank You usually suffices if you are not interested; it's the same when they try and persuade you to upgrade whilst ordering the free software.

Don't be put off, however, by this as Serif is well respected and, as I said, its software is excellent.
