So Dh has taken an definit stand on my digital arts intrests. He feels I should be more involved. This has won me some goodies. A few monthes ago I got an external hard drive and now... A laptop!!!!! :vb_chirolp_iei: He was actually happy to get it for me. And despite not being able to get him an wii for his b-day. (cant find them anywhear) So Now I have this wonderfull new item I can drag with me everywhear and scrap or work on my digital photo tuts. :) Only thing is im running into a problem with Windows Vista. I can no longer tell what is in my scrapbooking folder. All my kits are in some funky files now that dont show a full thumb. I think i need to start looking for one of those scraping kit organizers. any sugestions?

ACK! In my house Vista is a four letter word lol. Ick and eww and OH heck no...no way" But since you have made the jump lol there is only one way I do it. I seperate my downloads according to designer or store and I burn the content off. I have a binder that holds 100 cds or in this case dvds and I put them in there. I just can't sit there and seperate kits according to clors and what not so I burn them off periodically and just make sure that they are properly labeled in each folder. If a kit comes with an elements folder and a paper folder etc, I dump them all out into the Kits main folder then put that under the designer. For me, it works for you it might not lol. Geesh, I didn't really help did I? LOL.

Congrats on the Laptop! I told Alex don't buy me a Laptop, I want a Tablet sigh, maybe Christmas ;)

I was origanaly after the tablet notebook that gateway had ( i think it was gateway) but We got a awsome deal on this one so It all works out. Unfortunatlly If I burn the files to disk the new windows system will still open them this way. :( I need somthing that will have its own programing. thanks for the help though.

thanks Scrapgirl! I am verry excited. Though I near had an heart attack because of my concions while buying it. The money could have gone to pay extra on an bill. :) DH said I actually looked pale. LOL!!!

I've never used it, but have heard that ACDSee (http://www.acdsee.com/)is a good one. It does have a 30 day trial, so you aren't out anything if it doesn't work for you.

Oh, yeah, and there's also Picasa (http://picasa.google.com/), which is completely free, never used this one either, so I couldn't tell you if there are ads associated with it or anything, but it might be worth trying.

Hi, are there any ACDSee users out there? If so, can you tell me how to use it with PSE? I tried going to File/Open and then opening the program and nothing happens. I'm not able to access tutorials on their website at this time. I'm using the 30 day trial version and want to be able to be sure I can use it with PSE5 before I purchase the full version. I like the way the program looks so far.

Thanks,

Hi,

Hi,
Open ACDSee Photo Manager and open PSE. Then click on them item you want to scrap with & drag it into your workspace in PSE. It's that easy! There is another way too - you can select an item in ACDSee & use control E (but first you need to do these steps to set it up. (http://www.digiscrapinfo.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=38)..

We have a tutorial for digital scrapbookers on Getting Started in ACDSee (http://www.digiscrapinfo.com/files/details.php?file=2) and Organizing your alphas (http://www.digiscrapinfo.com/files/details.php?file=11)

Hope that helps!

Hhhmmm... I may be interested in something like this!

So what does it basically do? I went to the site you provided and saw the tutorials but I was wondering exactly what it does. Where do you get it too?

At the bottom of this page - there's a link to ACDSee - that will take you to where you can download a 30 day trial. Our tutorials make it easy to get started to see if you like it.

Here are two screenshots of what it looks like -
a search for buttons (my favorite search)

and you can set a background color so that you can view your white png's (stitching & overlays)
