    [quote name='Silver Fox' post='770599' date='15-Apr-2009 08:14']...can you enlighten me about Microsoft Photo Manager; I have just had my "C" drive wiped and (unknown to me) the technician installed XP 2003 whereas I was used to 2002 which as you know had Photo Editor which I found dead easy to use but Photo manager NOT SO. Photo Editor offered various formats to save a cropped photo which made it easy to comply with the maximum size allowed by the Lounge but P M is less clear -to me anyway-. Is there a tutorial somewhere that I can peruse to get the hang of it?
    Without searching the site I'm not sure whether I have already asked this question (if I have please pardon me) but seeing I found PE so easy to use I would be delighted to be able to use it again so is it possible to grab it from somewhere and install it again?[/quote]
    Well, I don't know nuthin' 'bout no McAfee no more, so I can't speak to that. But, based on the "re-direction" fears, I won't go near TinyURL in the future. Ya pays yer money and ya takes yer chances...

    I don't use MS Office any longer, but here's a quote from What happened to Photo Editor?
    Re-install Photo Editor from your Microsoft Office XP CD-ROM

    1. Insert the Microsoft Office XP CD-ROM into your computer's CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.

    If the Office XP Setup program does not start automatically, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, and then click Run.
    2. In the Open box, type drive:\Setup.exe, where drive is the letter of your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
    2. Start to step through the setup process, and then select Customize for the type of setup to perform.
    3. When you reach the Selecting Features step, set each node of the setup tree to Not Available.
    4. Under Features to install, expand Office Tools.
    5. Click Microsoft Photo Editor, and then click Run from My Computer.
    6. Click Install Now.
    7. Click OK when Office XP Setup has completed successfully.

    Thank you Al. Seeing I bought the computer second hand it follows I have no disc to insert as you advised so I shall go back to the shop where I got it and see if he has such a CD. One wonders at the intelligence of the guys who introduce new app. which have less capabilities than the ones being consigned to the scrap heap. As I said, I found Photo Editor so simple to use but PM is in my estimation a backward step so unless I can locate someone with 2002 I suppose I'll just have to get used to what is now installed or try something else. Thanks anyway SF.

    You ought to check out Photo Gallery - Windows Live. It is free, easy to use, and does basic photo editiing very well.

    Thanks Al & Joe. I am delighted to report that after discovering that I do in fact have a CD of MO 2000 and following the instructions posted by Al I was able to extract PE which I personally find dead easy to use compared with PM that replaced it. Seeing PE serves me quite well and -at the moment- does all I require of an editing prog. which is predominently capturing screen shots and reducing their size, I will never-the-less have a look at the option you suggested Joe and see how it appeals to me. Sincere thanks again SF.
