Uuuggghhh!

So frustrated! I finally have a little bit of time and some ideas for a page or two. I haven't scrapped since before Christmas. DH got me a new laptop for Christmas and I hadn't loaded Picture It (the photo editing program we use) on the computer yet. I've been trying for an hour now. I finally got the program loaded, but it won't open about half of the photos on my computer! Grrr! There seems to be no rhyme or reason to the ones it won't open. I mean, DH took a bunch of pics of Dylan today and it won't open some of them, but others are fine.

:bigblowup:

And to make matters worse, there is a cricut commercial on... oh the torture!

Oh man- that is frustrating. Why must new computers give us such woes?

Darn Windows Vista! That's what I'm blaming it on, anyway

Sorry to hear that. My dad is an IT guy and says that Vista is the worst program out there and won't even install it on the computers at his job. Hope the bugs get worked through

DH has photoshop around here somewhere... he's napping so I will ask him when he wakes up. I've been wanting to learn how to use it anyway. Hope it works for me!

I've questioned the wisdom of keeping it on, now that I found an old copy of XP. Bought Vista because when our old computer crashed we didn't have any xp disks. Sigh.

Dang, I've just been threadjacking away. My apologies.

If I remember right (Stephanie can tell you for sure) Vista and Picture It aren't compatible. Sad We were able to get XP on our laptop instead of Vista and I'm very glad!

I hope you can get something up and running!

ay yi yi! I'd be pulling my hair out!

yeah, I haven't been in a hurry to want to try Vista ... at the same time, I want a new computer but they don't sell with with XP anymore.

Sure hope your Picture It comes around or that you take to Photoshop. Either way, please let us know. I'm a Picture It user too, but have been wanting to try the Photoshop Elements that I have yet to install ...

When we ordered our new laptop at Christmas time we purposely asked them to put XP on it...not Vista...for that very reason. Sorry!! Sad What a bummer! Hope you can get it fixed ASAP.

sorry your picture it isn't working..that stinks.

i for one have not had any major issues with vista. just minor ones which seemed to disappear when i started using firefox. (I.E. sucks with vista...kept closing down every now and then). But anyway, I've always just used photoshop (cs3) and have had no issues with vista with it Smile hope you get it figured out! vista is not that bad in my own opinion lol

I'm starting to really hate Vista, but I wasn't able to get a system with XP unless I paid $400 more. My husband's "Vista compatible" game won't download and I've already had to reinstall Vista in less then a week of having the computer.

I found an XP disk we had, but apparantly it's only an upgrade from previous systems and not a clean install, so since we're beyond that and have Vista it won't download. Sad
