    Unfortunately there are some topics that the long time members have responded to at least 10 to 20 times each. People get tired of answering the same question every month. Rather than asking the member where they were when this was discussed last month, the search recommendation is made. This just happens to be one of those topics.
    Now to the question.
    Most of the better programs will allow the before and after photos to be in one frame. Look at DIG, ProLandscape, Visual Impact and there are a couple more in that quality range. Remember that a photo rendering is a sales tool, not an installation specification tool. A scaled plan is still the best way to communicate exactly where and what is going to be installed.

    Maybe he did not know he could search. look at his number of posts, as I did before I told him to search. ONLY ONE!!!!!!!!!:angry: So, maybe he did not know, I was really only trying to be helpful. The search feature is there to be used, and if used it can be very helpful..... ONLY 1 POST see that???????

    Let's see, there's the Mop with the sponge
    A bucket
    Bottle of disinfectant
    And at least 6 or 7 rolls of Tums*

    * Some for IBGreen and some for the sleepless moderators here.

    So what's that come to?

    I too looked at his number of posts and think the response is apprpriate. Don't puke> If you do it starts this chain reaction and we all start puking:D On subject, I like DIG for its price to feature ratio, but I still haven't bought it/ Maybe this winter. I have a tendency to overthink purchases like this.
