  2. Microsoft Digital Image Suite Anniversary Edition is fully optimized for
    Windows Vista.

    Microsoft Office Publishing...$169!

    =======================================
    No! MS Publisher is not the replacement. That's
    a desktop publishing program not an image editing
    program.

    The latest and last version of Digital Image Suite
    would be the current replacement for Picture It!.
    "Microsoft Digital Image Suite Anniversary Edition"

    This software line has been discontinued but some
    retails stores could still have copies for sale. Also
    check on eBay for availability.

    There's a 60 day trial version available for
    download if you would like to give it a try:

    Microsoft Digital Image
    Starter Edition 2006
    http://tinyurl.com/28loxr
    (this product line has been
    discontinued but you can still
    down-load the Starter Version
    and run it for 60 days)

    Unlike the retail version...the trial does not
    have the ability to create VCDs and it does
    not include the clipart and pre-formatted
    projects.

    I see that this is an old thread but I have not been able to find an
    adequate replacement for Picture It. Digital Image is gone too, and it
    wasn't nearly as good as Picture It anyway. PI did everything I needed
    and was quick and easy to understand. Picture It users: what are you
    using now? Is there anything as good that doesn't cost a ton of money?

  6. Yo!

    Try downloading Windows Photo Gallery or HP PhotoSmart Essential 2.0, those
    are really good photo organizerers.

    I too am very frsutrated with Vista and the lack of software that I use
    to use, won't work now. I had Picture It Photo 2001 and it was a GREAT
    photo editing tool! Ihad no idea it wouldn't work with Vista. It loaded
    fine, but once you try and use it, it stops working! Window Photo
    Gallery IMO sucks. Why does Microsoft do this! It makes me crazy and
    makes me wish I would have bought a MAC! I now have to use my lap top
    with XP if I want to use Picture It. Just very frustrating and the list
    keeps growing. If anyone here finds a great replacement, keep me posted
    please. Thanks!

    Hi all, I used to use Picture It also and loved it's capabilities. I
    am so fed up trying to find a replacement programme that comes anywhere
    close to PI. They are either too confusing to use, or cost the earth to
    buy.

    I am furious with Microsoft. They want to bring out these new OS, but
    never allow your previous programmes to work, therefore leaving you no
    other choice but to buy new ones. I know the price of computers have
    come down greatly, but it still works out expensive having to buy all
    new programmes.

    I am yet to have found a replacement photo editing programme that does
    all the tasks I require. :cry: As it stands, I use about 3 different
    programes to the same tasks that PI done for me.

    ========================================
    The successor to MS Picture It was MS Digital Image.

    The latest and last version was:
    "Microsoft Digital Image Suite 2006 Anniversary Edition"
    (this software will run on XP and is optimized for Vista)

    There's still a 60 day trial version you can download if
    you want to try it.

    Microsoft Digital Image
    Starter Edition 2006
    http://tinyurl.com/28loxr
    or...
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...ED-A15F-48C5-B724-7796FE8C151E&displaylang=en
    (this product line has been
    discontinued but you can still
    download the Starter Version
    and run it for 60 days)

    Unlike the retail version...the trial does not
    have the ability to create VCDs and it does
    not include the clipart and pre-formatted
    projects.

    Even though the product line is discontinued...
    it is still possible to find copies at online sites
    like Amazon and eBay.

    I found the answer to running Picture It on Vista at another forum.
    Right-click on the Picture It! icon and run as administrator. It worked
    for me!:D

  12. I'm using Picture It! version 2 still but would love to find a newe
    version of a compatible software. The newspaper and magazine cover
    that Picture It creates with a minimum of fuss is very nice. I kno
    this is an old thread but does anyone know of anything that comes clos
    to the functionality that Picture It had
