Roxio Creator 2012 is a powerful digital media suite that combines pretty much everything you'll ever need to do with your media in one user-friendly and slick package.

The Roxio Creator interface is modern, clean, and very intuitive. It's divided into four main areas which give you access to all the suite’s tools for managing, sharing and recording media. Each one of these tools in Roxio Creator include a bunch of features of its own. If there is one aspect of Roxio Creator that cannot be criticized, it is the sheer breadth of options. If it's related to digital media and you can think of it, Roxio Creator is almost guaranteed to be able to help you achieve it.

Burning CDs, creating DVDs, making labels, designing slideshows, writing e-books, editing photos, creating digital copies of your old vinyl records and cassette tapes, and backing up data is only the tip of the Roxio Creator iceberg. Among the most interesting features in this new version is the video stabilizer, the possibility to download photos and videos from Facebook and the awesome tool to convert images and videos to 3D!

Unfortunately, all these amazing features come at a price, and in the case of Roxio Creator, it is quite a high one. The program takes ages to install, is very slow and sucks up colossal amounts of memory. It is very easy to use, and the centralization of features might appeal to users who are not comfortable with digital media tools, but there's an important thing to remember: very few users are likely to need ALL of the functions that Roxio Creator offers, especially if they are not technologically-savvy.

Roxio Creator is still a powerhouse, but for many users it will feel like overkill.
