Re: Photo Downloader with Vista/Photoshop/Picasa
I have a new Sony VGN-AR320E laptop with similar specs as yours. I use a
Canon 20D and Adobe Photoshop CS2. I've had no problems except:
When I try to open a large .jpg image in Vista MS Photo Editor (the default
in Vista) it would not open any .jpg image file that was larger than about
3-4mb. I would get an error message similar to the one you mentioned. I
changed the default on images to PS CS2, which solved the problem...but why,
when Vista is supposed to be an upgrade, does MS Photo Editor have a limit
on file size? I could open large image files with MS Photo Editor in
Windows XP. Do I need to tell MS Photo Editor to run in XP? If so, that
makes no sense to me...as this computer came with the software installed. I
talked to my local computer shop and they said that my problem with MS Photo
Editor in Vista was not unusual. Any suggestions????
