From the high end, top dollar programs to the free programs that can be downloaded from the Internet, the NYIAD designers cover them all. We'll tell you which programs are best for you, what each offers, and what are their strengths and weaknesses. We'll explain why you don't need expensive top-of-the-line software.

Possibly you don't have a computer but are looking to purchase one. That's great because Point.Click.Design! will guide you through all the steps to buying a computer–the terms you need to know, the components you'll need, and where to find them. Also included is a guide to online calculators, which help you determine the amount of paint, wallpaper, or flooring your clients need by punching in a few numbers. It couldn't be easier!

You'll also discover how to enrich your work portfolio with our comments on digital cameras. Had you thought about the role photography plays in interior design? The Special Report looks at the advantages of using a digital camera in our field-documenting the progress of your work, creating your own portfolio, being able to e-mail images to your clients, and expanding your business.
