A Very Good WordPress Theme – Beaver Builder

The best WordPress theme I have ever come across is Beaver Builder. It is so good I have dropped all other themes.  What you can do with Beaver Builder in a matter of minutes using their drag and drop page builder puts all other themes to shame.

With Beaver Builder you can customise just about anything you want in a theme, from page layout, to pre-defined templates for both pages and content, Beaver Builder will get you to a point of building a professional WordPress website without all the headaches of learning code, css files, all using their Page Builder.

Check out Beaver Builder, a strong recommendation from Lowery.com

Review of Doodly – Drawing Animations made easy

Doodly is a new software product available for Mac and Windows. It allows you to create drawing based animations lightening fast, by providing you a number of pre-drawn scenes, characters, and even allows you to customise a drawing path using any image you select.  For hand drawn animations, it is simple and easy to use, and even includes pre-defined, royalty free stock and audio to give your drawing animations a bit of ambience.

Doodly also provides the ability to define a drawing, slowing or speeding up the drawing to match the audio!  It is truly a fantastic piece of software. I use it personally for my own drawing based animations.

Doodly comes in three pricing packages, which are Basic, Pro, and Enterprise. With the Pro version you get many more pre-defined scenes and characters (which are always being updated), and with the enterprise version you get the ability to resell anything you make with Doodly.

When I first started Doodly, I did find a number of bugs with the software, but when I contacted support these issues were updated almost immediately. The next time I logged into the software on my workstation, Doodly asked to upgrade, and when I did, the software issues I identified and pointed out to support were handled in a very timely fashion.

I strongly recommend that you check out Doodly. Note, in order to obtain the pro and enterprise versions you will need to sign up for the Basic version. The license for this desktop application is less than 100 for the Basic version. Also note, that the basic version sales page may be closed, to allow them to work on the next version.

Review of Adobe Creative Suite

For professional graphic design, and music/video development, nothing beats Adobe. The Adobe Suite contains some of the most advanced tools for the graphic/video/audio professional.

Adobe has taken a different stance on their software. In the past it costs thousands of dollars to get a license for even one of their products, such as PhotoShop. But they have now moved to a subscription service where you can get not only Photoshop, but many other packages, including Audition, After Effects, Premiere Pro, and many others for a small low monthly price.

Enter the Creative Cloud subscription. I use it personally, and have downloaded all the professional tools I need for the digital era. No longer do I have to have a huge cash outlay for Photoshop, but can pay this small monthly price to get so much more. Here is what is available in the Creative Cloud subscription, for a small monthly fee of $49 per month:

  • Photoshop
  • Audition
  • Premiere Pro
  • Dreamweaver
  • Illustrator
  • Acrobat
  • LightRoom
  • InDesign
  • Muse
  • Flash
  • Stock (photos and video)

And even more!  You simply can’t go past this. Each software package in the past has attracted thousands of dollars in licensing, but all available at a single yearly price. For the graphic, audio, and video professional, upgrade today. In doing so you still get the tools you love installed on your Mac or PC, but for a simple small monthly price.
