Hello Denton, Welcome to Talkgraphics. If you are interested in upgrading I highly recommend Designer Pro X you will I believe need to do the upgrade through Xara.com not Magix.
You mentioned Craft artist are you doing digital scrapbooking? DPX is perfect for scrapbooking. I have used the presntation features to create an online scrapbook that I uploaded to my web server and set up a private link and shared it with my family members it worked great! you can layout your scrapbook page, edit your photos, and create embelishments all in the same place and in the Designs Gallery there is a selection of scrapbooking sets (aka kits)
