    Comic life 2

    Hi all,
    Anyone come across this software before, if so have you got any recommendations?

    Comic Life 2 (Win) | Educational software for UK schools and colleges

    Just been asked to look into it for 100 licenses but have a feeling that it will be a pig to deploy over a network.

    Are there any other online comic strip creators out there that anyone else uses?

    Thanks in advance

    We have deployed it. I downloaded an MSI from the website:

    Link: plasq.com

    I also downloaded an MST to insert the licence details. Worked first time.

    I installed it couple of years ago and found it very straight forward. MSI download and used Orca to insert the licence key with the instructions sent by Plasq.

    @DaveP: @mrwobbly:

    Thanks lads for prompt reply.

    I did find this: Pixton for Schools | World's Best Comic-Making Software for Education

    I think this would fulfil the requirements without the need to deploy software and keep upgrading every year.

    What do you both think of this?

    I couldn't comment I am afraid. Having found that the MSI/MST worked successfully I was happy. Our ICT teacher is the one who wanted this software on the network and he is the one who is most familiar with it.

    Sorry I can't be more helpful.

    Not relevent, but as I was bored I made a spreadsheet, out of the 1000 choices for number of licences there are 642 options where buying more licences is cheaper.

    =row(); =IF(A1<10,11.99*A1,IF(A1<25,7.49*A1,IF(A1<100,6.29 *A1,IF(A1<250,5.09*A1,IF(A1<500,3.59*A1,IF(A1<1000 ,2.39*A1)))))); =IF(B1>MIN(B1:B1000),1,0); =SUM(C:C)
