The TP-Link RE650 AC2600 Wi-Fi Range Extender is a plug in unit that makes it super simple to install and use but while still offering lots of power. This is a lot larger than most plug-in extenders, but with that extras size comes a lot of extra range.

Somehow TP-Link has managed to make this device look pretty good with a minimal design flanked by some pretty solid looking antennas. With lights to give feedback and an app for smart controls this is a very accessible device, both for beginners and WiFi aficionados alike.  The price is steep but then this is a…

Comic Creator Studio by Summitsoft is fun, basic and inexpensive. This makes it perfect for kids, or any adults with limited artistic ability who want to dabble in comic making. It has some basic illustration tools, though the effects are more in line with classic comics than the cool 3D anime and manga images that are popular today. It’s one of the best comic creator software packages for beginners and younger users, but is unlikely to satisfy more advanced creatives. Comic Creator Studio has loads of pre-made templates, including page layouts and characters. There are 36 different comic panel layouts, along with 50 characters that each come with at least five different poses. This really isn’t enough character variation to create an elaborate story, but it is enough to play around with and learn the basics of comic creation. Unlike Manga Maker ComiPo! , this program doesn’t let you customize…

Comic Draw is an iPad app, which means it has a number of advantages and disadvantages. On the upside, it’s cheap and simple to use. On the downside, it’s limited to Apple tablets with 64-bit capabilities (and works best on the more powerful iPad Pro variants) and it isn’t as fully featured or responsive as traditional comic software for home computers and laptops. It is one of the best comic creator software options you can buy right now, and is a real bargain if you don’t mind working on a tablet and you already have an Apple Pencil and an iPad capable of running it properly. Comic Draw review: Ease of use Comic Draw is – technically – the least expensive option when it comes to comic software. You can draw using your fingers, but you’ll need a graphics pen like the Apple Pencil if you want to get the…

It isn’t the most feature packed or professional illustration software, but it’s simple to use, relatively cheap, and offers loads of options for creating your own comics and manga. It doesn’t sit at the top of our guide to the best comic creator software , but it’s highly recommended, especially for younger users who want to take their first steps into comic art and illustration. Buy Manga Maker ComiPo! on Steam Manga Maker ComiPo! review: Features and use Since Manga Maker ComiPo! focuses on customizing pre-made characters, there are no paint brushes, pencils or other drawing tools. For that kind of thing you should consider Clip Studio Paint Pro or Clip Studio Paint EX . This also means it isn’t a good program to use with a…

Its drawing features are second to none and for all these reasons it’s among the best comic creator software packages you can buy today. But is it the absolute best? Well, yes and no – here’s why. Clip Studio Paint EX review: Ease of use Clip Studio Paint EX is a mix between Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop – minus the photo correction tools – since it allows you to use vector and raster layers in the same file, while also giving you organizational tools to…

Clip Studio Paint Pro is a perfect place to start if you’re taking your first steps into comic drawing and illustration. It’s the more basic version of Clip Studio Paint EX, and costs a fraction of the price, but it’s incredibly well featured. It has an excellent variety of paint tools and color options, access to a free library of over 10,000 assets, and it’s easy to use – especially if you’re familiar with the newer versions of PhotoShop.

Clip Studio Paint Pro review: Ease of use When you first start using Clip Studio Paint Pro you’ll quickly start to realize that many of the hotkeys are the same as Photoshop’s, so if you are already familiar with Adobe’s programs, it should be easy to…
