    I'm not sure if you mean writing and selling new software, or if you mean using it.

    If you mean using it, here are my tips from over 25 years in IT and training.

    1. Know what the software does and doesn't do, and what you want to use it for.
    2. Clean up your system (no viruses, plenty of disk space, etc.) before installation.
    3. Read all instructions before installation.
    4. Take time to learn your way around the program.
    5. Pick a few specific small projects, and do each one carefully, learning to use the program.
    6. Remember that there is a lot of excellent advice on programs and on add-ons on the web and on YouTube.

      Well I meant using it, but I realized the question could go both ways (since I did not clarify).

      But those are great tips, and I unknowingly do those tips when working with a new program (prior to purchase).

    A software that you put a picture of you in it and then it allows you to drag and drop clothes from amazon or other websites.  When you drag and drop the clothes on you will be able to tell how they will look on you.

      That does sound like an interesting software! Definitely would make shopping easier on the web for everyone!

    Get a book on it! Or, if you know anyone on a graphic design type course, ask them for some of their tutorial notes? There are loads of videos online, you just have to search for what it is exactly that you want to do, using whatever software! good luck!
