Verdict / Comic Creator is good comic maker software for beginners.
Comic Creator by Summitsoft is fun and basic comic book software that is perfect for beginning comic makers, including children who want to dabble a little in making a comic book on their own. It has many of the features found in the best comic software, such as pencils and air brushes, though the effects are more in line with classic comics than the cool 3D anime and manga images that are popular today.
This comic software has many premade templates, including page layouts and characters. It also has several premade comic graphics. The drag-and-drop function makes it easy to select and place backgrounds, characters and objects onto your comic book pages without much effort. However, the illustration tools give you the flexibility to be more creative.
This software has word balloons that you can position where you need them. This feature isn't standard with comic software, so it is nice that Summitsoft included it in Comic Creator. This is the extent of the script tools available, since the program focuses more on illustration.
Even though this comic software is for beginners, it isn't limited in its features. Comic Creator includes layers that you can edit, page templates, and the ability to embed images into email and send directly from the program. You can also upload your images to Facebook from Comic Creator. The file formats that you can save your designs in are limited; Comic Creator only supports PDF. This will make it tricky to edit or add script in different programs. If you want a program that is compatible with more image files, you might want to consider Manga Studio.
Summitsoft has some good customer support options. There is also a FAQs section included on the company's website. A help section is available within the Comic Creator program itself that can answer most user questions and basic troubleshooting tips. However, if you come across a problem that needs one-on-on attention, both telephone and email support are available.
Comic Creator is only compatible with Windows operating systems. It doesn't require a lot of RAM to either install or operate. You will not need an internet connection to use Comic Creator, since it is available in CD form; however, internet access is necessary if you wish to use the integrated email function.
Comic Creator is a good option for comic book software for beginners. It has all the functions you need to make your own comic book quickly and easily, including page and character templates and editable layers. The file formats that you can save and export your designs are limited in Comic Creator, which only supports PDF files. However, you have all the pencils, markers, color palettes and air brushes that are found in the more professional comic software.
