I've got my hands on photoshop but the problem is I can't find anything that would make it work correct with Vista.

Can anyone help me with this ?

Photoshop 3.0 is a 1994 program, are you sure that's the correct version?

Isn't there something missing from its name?

Yes there is.

Adobe Photoshop elements is its full name.
If it is from 1994 no wonder it doesn't work.

Photoshop Elements is not the same product as Photoshop, Photoshop Elements 3 is from 2004.

Try this update from Adobe, apparently they had to release this to make it work in Windows Vista.

Thank you I will try and install it again this evening.

Uhm... What is the difference actually ? Like is it an add on or a product on its own ?

I don't get it. I've installed the program but the patch didn't work.
I said I need to repair, so I did. Reset the pc as it asked for to work properly.

I try the patch again. Still nothing
I can't repair cause it says it can not register photo mail dll

Do I need to register the program first ?
Well I will try it anyway.

Is your operating system 32 or 64 bits?

That patch only works in 32 bits systems.

Photoshop Elements is a different product, something like a "lite" version of Photoshop, but it looks like it was made by a different company, there are too many different things.

I never liked Photoshop Elements but I like Photoshop.

Ok then I will get photo shop.
I do not know if my system is 32 or 64 bit.

Learn this stuff by trying and I only try when I need to

Do you have some good advice the next move. I don't need the newest version or something. As long as it works I'm happy.

Photoshop is good but expensive, although I think you can find it relatively cheap online.

As far as I know, version 7 was good, and the newer versions don't have that much that you may need.

And having said that, what do you need to do with it? If it's nothing special and you don't want to work with very large images, there are some free programs that can do most of what most people need to do, like GIMP, but they aren't as intuitive as Photoshop.

I have to say that I am a Gimper.

Couldn't afford Photoshop so I started Gimping and still haven't scratched the surface of it yet.

There are also many tutorials online from beginner to advanced.

Edit to add: Most of the Photoshop brushes are now compatible in the latest version of Gimp.

I have Gimp, Picasa and being my favorite, less problems, lots of features and easier to use. All of these are free online. You may have a time down loading the first time, try again maybe using another source and it usually works.

Thanks guys

Then I suppose I should give gimp a try first.
