LifeStory has succeeded in creating a comprehensive software system that meets the needs of the beginner and advanced user that is both powerful and "Easy to Use" by offering two programs that work together.
Heritage Collector Basic is a perfect starting place for beginner and intermediate users. Tutorials, instant help, and printed "recipe" oriented documentation are provided. Beginning users may start with Heritage Collector Basic and then upgrade to ProMedia Manager to use the added features and functions with their existing collections.
ProMedia Manager Suite is designed for the advanced user. It contains an archive system, backup, unique GPS database ---- However, it also contains Heritage Collector Basic.
The unique nature and usability of LifeStory software is probably best summarized by a user, Ronald Olsen, an 81 year old grandpa who had this to say about LifeStory software: "I have had so much fun using this program. I made and sent photo archives and CD slide shows to all of my kids and grandkids for Christmas. I love this program."
