“We've been so thankful for this program and we continue to use it often. My son had to do a puppet show for Royal rangers and we used GT to make the background scenery. He is also very interested in magic tricks and we have used the program to make graphics to spruce up the homemade props.”
“THANK YOU so much for creating your tutorial videos. After watching them, both my 13 year old daughter & I were excited to work with Graphics-Toolbox. She keeps saying the possibilities are endless and can't wait to keep learning more. I believe anyone interested in providing their kids and/or themselves an open doorway into the world of technology and computer graphics should check this out for themselves.”
"Graphics-Toolbox is a wonderful tool for all types of projects. It has helped my son with enhancing the quality of his school projects. I use it for work related reports as well as personal projects, such as creating invitations, cards and scrap booking. This tool is versatile, easy to learn and enjoyable for all ages. It creates professional looking documents that will impress your clients or friends."
“Really – honestly, it’s a very simple program to use. With minimal understanding of how graphics work, you can do some pretty fancy shmancy stuff. If you wanna raise your game a few notches, this is the way to go about it. The tutorials available for GT are phenomenal. Not only will you learn how to manipulate images, but you’ll pick up some technical knowledge as well.”
“I absolutely love this program. It's easy to use and the finished products are very professional looking. I can't believe I actually made them myself! As a pediatric nurse, I don’t have artistic training, but I’ve already used Graphic Toolbox to retouch some old photos and to create my own announcements and invitations.”
“What I can tell you is that so many doors of possibilities beg to be opened with the use of the Graphics-Toolbox program. I plan to continue to further explore this, so that I can create more personal lapbook components, history visuals, and especially to make creative workbox materials to use in our daily homeschool adventures.”
“I am having so much fun using GT. I can't keep away from my computer. I have been very involved in scrapbooking for years, and Graphic Toolbox has added a whole new dimension for me. I feel like a have found a hidden treasure.”
“I like using this tool for my school book reports. It is easy to learn and use and it really helps me get a good grade. I like that you can bring in pictures from the Internet as well as your own pictures to make your report look very neat and well written. I am looking forward to using it for all my reports as well as other school projects.”
“Graphics-Toolbox has a plethora of neat functions. One of my favorites is the Color Library: There are limitless color possibilities, and colors are grouped, so you can rest assured that any colors on a particular sheet will "go" with one another. No more guess work for the color deficient!”
If you are a scrapbooker or blogger, you will love Graphics-Toolbox! If you are in business and need to make flyers or brochures, you will love Graphics-Toolbox! If you are a mom who wants to make invitations or cards, you will love Graphics Toolbox.

"As a first year teacher, having Graphics-Toolbox has really transformed my fashion trend analysis project. The students are using GT as a career-enhancing opportunity to help them sell their ideas. Graphics-Toolbox gives them the hands-on experience they find in a professional setting and they are capitalizing on it to aid in their development toward internships and job opportunities!"
“Graphics-Toolbox has allowed me to edit all my pictures to make my ‘Facebook’ profile look a lot more fun. The tools are straight to the point and can be picked up in no time at all, even with no graphics skills. It’s Great !!
“My wife got me looking at Graphic Toolbox. I'm self-employed and GT has allowed me to develop my own marketing and presentation materials. By doing my own graphics, I save money and get exactly what I need to represent my company.”
“I love my new Graphic Toolbox! I am an avid scrap booker, who's tired of always having the wrong color in my current embellishment stash......so I tweak it in GT and there I go...perfect coloring every time with the unlimited color choices. Also, I love importing the digital kits ......my pages rock now!”
“Graphics-Toolbox is a phenomenal program that lets me use cutting edge graphics both in and outside the classroom. Its uses are endless and it surpasses any computer educational program that I have seen. It is also great for personal use such as designing my own letterhead and scrapbook pages, and creating posters for my fundraising causes.”
"I am a very good photographer and I use Graphics-Toolbox to remove the background when recovering old portraits. It is the easiest way to go because the tools are fast and give me the effects that I want."
Graphics-Toolbox® was created by a team of software designers with over 20 years experience in graphics programming.
We discovered, that most other software programs, being used for graphics, were designed for other uses. For instance, Adobe Photoshop is an excellent photo-editing program, but a lot of people over the years, have had to use it as a general graphics manipulation/design package. They didn't have better options. Graphics Toolbox was designed as a real alternative to Photoshop for all non-photo effects, graphics needs. We created an extensive range of very easy to understand and use graphics tools, for the world's daily graphic needs.
The other problem with other graphics software packages is that they were not designed from day one to keep things simple for the end users. Then as new programming was built upon the original design, the functions became more and more complicated for everyone other than professionally trained designers. For the rest of us, these other programs are difficult to learn and awkward to use. We believe that Graphics-Toolbox will quickly become your main graphics editing software tool and look forward to receiving your comments.
Project Based Learning Kits and Graphics-Toolbox software were created by a team of designers with over 20 years of experience in graphics design and programming and a team of passionate and ambitious teachers.
With the Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) being implemented across the nation, these core learning standards were created in order to instill in students deep thinking, critical analysis, and creative problem-solving skills. Our Common Core Learning Project Kits are an essential tool to add to your academic toolbox. These project based learning kits are the key to helping teachers add rigor into project based education, meet the Common Core Learning Standards, engage their students in learning, improve student assessment, incorporate valuable technology, and publish students work in a variety of relevant formats.
Educators are very excited about these units because all kits contain:
An interesting Performance Task to excite the students to learn the lesson
Essential Questions, Big ideas, and Reflective Questions to inspire discussion and critical thinking
The Common Core Learning Standards in which the lesson aligns
