Photodraw cannot SAVE AS GIF, JPG or PNG
Posted on 2013-06-18
PhotoDraw has been working perfectly for over a decade on my various computers. Something happened the other day and now I cannot use the SAVE AS (or save for use in) to save a file in a format such as GIF, JPG or PNG. There is no error and no file is saved. I have already removed and reinstalled the software with no change in performance. I found an old copy of eraser2k but that seemed to crash after a short time.
I remember having a similar problem years ago - perhaps in Windows XP - and somehow it was solved, but I cannot remember how.
I realize that there are other drawing programs available for purchase and that Microsoft no longer supports this product. I also know first-hand that this product worked with Windows 8 with 100% compatibility (without any custom settings).
So if you have an idea how this program interacts with the export of JPG, PNG and GIF files and how I might get this to work again, I would appreciate any suggestions you might have.
