    Ok, I don't have a zip file in front of me for step by step but you should be able to double click on it like a regular document and then click on export files _ then save the files to where you want them saved on your computer or Cd.


    hope that helps.

    ok so I can save them and view them when I click on it but when I go to my scrapbook program and what to use it I can't open it or rather don't know how to ---KWIM?

    Before I try to explain another way can you answer this -- have you exported them? Just because you saved the zip file, you still need to export them (aka - pull them out of the zip file)

    If you have not exported them:

    then go into your folder where you saved the file (do not do this through your scrapbook program).

    Right click and you should see an option to export. Select export and follow the directions from there.

    Let me know if that doesn't work.

    Do you have winzip or winrar? I use winrar to unzip files and then I move them into my scrapbooking folder.

    If you're talking about pages that others have made with just a place to put your pic...you need Photoshop or a program that similar to use these. I know...it stinks, but they don't usually work in other programs.
