The Resources You'll Need

We believe the products and services recommended on this site are the very best currently available. They are the same products we use and find to be extremely helpful.
Should you decide to use one of the web hosting or template companies, or purchase optional resources through Adobe, we receive a small referral fee, thus keeping your cost down.

Why You Will Want to Use These Resources

Once you see how helpful these tools are, you will want to use them!

  1. The resources shown above are the result of years of searching for the very best and most useful internet tools we could find. While there is some overlap, we've found that each has strengths that put them head and shoulders over the other tools that are out there.
  2. There's also a second reason you will want to put these in to your tool chest. These are the actual programs we'll be using in all of our videos. Your screen will look exactly like our screen - which will make it much easier for you to follow along.

Don't worry about downloading them and then trying to learn how to use them now. We'll be covering downloading, setting up and using them in the videos as we go along.
