    Multiple pages as one document

    I am trying to figure out how to scan multiple pages into Photodraw and be able to email them as one file. Can anyone shed some light? If Photodraw is incapable of this, any suggestions on other software that might do this?

    Amiee,

    If you have Windows Imaging. You can scan one image to that program, save it as a tiff, and then continue to scan, appending pages to the original. I have not tried in PhotoDraw. Will try next week, if successfull, will reply to you again.

    Amiee,

    Microsoft PowerPoint might prove successful as you can scan images to and save as many pages as you want. PowerPoint has no photo editing power, but it seems you only want a format/program to hold many images in a single file. PowerPoint can do that.

    PhotoDraw does NOT support multiple pages. Here are two excerpts from the PhotoDraw help file.
    I have added bolding for emphasis.

    TIFF: Tagged Image File Format PhotoDraw supports all TIF formats that conform to TIFF Specification Revision 5.0 and 6.0, Part 1: Baseline TIFF, including monochrome, grayscale, palette color, and RGB True Color images. Single 8-bit alpha channel stored with an RGB True Color image is correctly handled, as are CMYK images saved with the .tif extension.

    The TIFF filter provided by PhotoDraw does not support multiple alpha channels (stored as subfiles) or alpha channels that don't have 8 bits per pixel.

    GIF: Graphics Interchange Format PhotoDraw supports versions GIF87a (including interlacing) and GIF89a (including interlacing and transparency). When opening animated GIF files in PhotoDraw, only the first image in the sequence is imported.

    Hope this helps!
    v/r,
    Ryan

    Creating a Powerpoint presentation is not really a viable option since the recipient is unable to save individual images. It's an all or nothing scenario. When I share multiple photos, it's simply a matter of zipping them up with WinRar and shipping them off. WinRar is a piece of cake to use and compresses the files down to the smallest file size possible. The recipient simply unzips the file and all the pictures you put into it are displayed in their original form. They can then decide if they want to save all, some or none of the images. They can be treated the same as any other image file and that includes image manipulation in Photoshop or other photo editing software. This is a no-brainer.
