Prize Incompatibilty Resolution

I got this from one of my CT members today and it sounds like a great solution for those of you that were unable to use any of those great templates from Challenge 1:

Theresa, I think there is a way everyone can enjoy their prizes, even if they don't use Photoshop. They can download a free 30 day trial of ACDSee Photo Editor here:

It will open Photoshop files. They can then save each of the individual layers as .PNG, or they can scrap with them in the program. They may decide they like the program an buy it, but if not, they can covnert anything for use later. I think it also opens PSP files in layers. It will NOT open DIS/DIP PNG Plus files in layers. I tired. It no workee!

I don't have this problem because I use PSE, but I just wanted to comment how great it is that you have been working your tails off and resolving problems. I have had TONS of fun- this is my first race and I've had no problems whatsoever! Thanks for all your efforts in organizing the race and ironing out any kinks. :) We all appreciate it!

wow, thanks for the tip, hitech honey! :D My friends are getting more interested, and asking what program I use, but they're turned off by the initial cost. This should help convince them! :)

GIMP is a free full function photo program that opens Photoshop docs and uses PS brushes and plugns. :) Maybe that will help out too.
