    I use a product by Broderbund...it's pretty elementary but you can scan pics in and add features.

    Since you're a new member I'll be quite kind. There are numerous posts that can help on this subject, so do a search and you'll have more info than you can digest. That said, I've looked at quite a few of these and the one I preferred was a product called DIG. Around $500 and fairly easy. Welcome aboard and good luck.

    I use a program called imagine your landscape. Bought it at sams 2 or 3 years ago. they no longer have it but i think you can get it at amazon.com. also the disk list thier website as www.macmillansoftware.com I'm sure you could order it direct. Before i bought this I bought about 10 programs that didn't live up to the adds. Now this is all I use. It has a large plant base, and most commenly used landscape materials. Also if you don't find what you want you can go online to their site and get it. I use a digital camera to import my pictures but one of the options is scan a photo. of all the programs i've bought this is the best. Its very easy to use and a very powerful program for the money. I think I paid between $80 and $100 when I got it. Hope this helps you

    Got a great package from a company called Design Imaging Group in New York. It is great. Has a large selection of hardscapes, plants, shrubs and trees. Even has a night scape disk to show customers what the job will look like at night with lighting. I have ran this program for 5 years now and it sells itself. Visit www.DesignImagingGroup.com
