Re: [Help] Microsoft PictureIt Platinum - anything like it for W

Thanks for all these suggestions - I'll try the running as XP mode -
Sue, when you say you're having them printed and they have the design software, is that an online source? Thanks!

Yes! You can personalize greeting cards with your photos using their software and have them printed. I am pretty sure it will be cheaper than printing with your home printer. In some cases you can have the prints sent to your home store to avoid shipping costs. I think it is worth looking into.

I too liked and became very familiar and comfortable with Picture It. It came with a Works Suite with my first computer.

You are not alone in lamenting the difficulty in running it on current Windows systems. There are many dissatisfied users.

Microsoft suggests: Microsoft Picture it application has been discontinued. However, you may download & use Windows Live Photo Gallery.

To download Windows Live Photo Gallery, refer to this link:

This article from Yahoo Answers might be of some help:

"There was a lot more software for fun projects until Windows XP came along then everything seemed to get serious. When Vista replaced XP the fun programs disappeared. I started with Picture It!, too. It was great for a beginner. There are very few programs - if any - out there right now for the truly beginning photo taker who wants to play with and have fun with their photos while creating things.

I wish I could list a dozen project-oriented photo programs for you but I haven't found many for today's computers. Broderbund's Printmaster is about the only all-in-one piece of software left and it's not really designed for much detailed photo editing. I switched to Printmaster for a short while after giving up Picture It! - and while trying to climb the learning curve of Photoshop 7.
