Question Coyote Stencil

Good morning folks,
Its good to be here and able to help and be helped by you all. I have a question about the coyote program? Has anyone tried it or have it. I was thinking about getting it but 89.00 is alot if you're not sure about it. I would appreciate your thoughts on this.

I bought it a year or so ago. It works OK for some photos and not so good for others. It's fairly easy to use and the learning curve isn't too steep but there is better software out there if one is willing to spend the time learning to use it. In my honest opinion, and it's just my opinion, I don't feel it's worth the price tag. A lot of folks here use Corel and PSP and produce some really great patterns. I suppose they could provide some pro's and con's as to difficulty of use and learning curve.
If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

The Coyote Stencil Shop program is available as a free trial version download here:

All work is guaranteed, if it breaks you get to keep both pieces.

I have coyote and like it. I also have two vector programs. The learning curve is very steep as compared to coyote. I suppose the learning curve is directly proportional to how much time you are will to spend learning, when you already have a program that does, pretty much what you want it to do.
Hope this helps.
