    Default gggrrrr... (updated with finished pages)

    I'm really "put out" at the moment. I've made a page twice now and both times as I go to save, my program dies! Can I just cry! The page has lots of graphics on it so it is just too much for my computer. You would think I would remember to save it before it gets too big and then at least I woudn't have lost all of it both times. I highly edited a couple of the pictures too, thankfully I did save the "most" edited picture - phewww.

    I've known for a long time that I need a better laptop, but sadly we just can't afford one at this time.

    I've had that happen too! It makes you want to cry since you worked on it so hard. We ended up using our tax money to get a 'puter strong enough to handle the graphics dh was working with.

    Just a suggestion to see if maybe you can still work with your ideas ... save part of your work (however much you can do before it crashes) as a single jpeg. It'll have to be exactly the way you want it b/c you won't be able to manipulate it anymore. But then insert that jpeg into a new page and layer on the rest of your elements/photos to finish it. The jpeg should compress down to a much smaller file and maybe allow your 'puter to handle it. HTH

    Oh man!! That's a bummer! I'm sorry Stephanie. That would be so frusterating.

    Aw, I'm so sorry, it really sucks when that happens ... that's one of the bad things about being digital!!! I hope you get it to finally work eventually!

    I finished the pages. They are not what a started with, but that is just because I changed my mind. Some of the pictures are highly edited. The picture with bridge in background used to have a crane in it and the one of me walking used to have a picnic bench behind my head. I knew better than to not save (especially after it had already happened once), but I forget sometimes. Anyway, here is the finished product (well, almost finished. I just realized that I forgot I was going to put the wedding date on there):

    No, it is actually the Puget Sound. Thank you.

    Looks so pretty - and you can't tell at all that you edited them (a good sign of editing! lol) ... great pages!
