What format to save project to have a professional print it

I have an ancient program: the Print Shop version 6 (!!) in which I make family calendars every year- we are up to 19 now. I would like to design them then have them professionally printed. This year I saved each page in jpg and bmp format and took to the printer on a cd. They couldn't print them because every page came out pixellated no matter what form they tried to use. What format should I save them in so they will come out as nice as when I print them at home?

JPEGs were only really intended for monitor display, although they do print up on a home inkjet very well. They should not really be used for any kind of long term storage other than as original image files if that is how they were shot, as every time you save them they degrade due to the compression process used. If you are working in photoshop I would leave them in psd format, especially if you have any layers. Your edited files will store well long term as either psd or tiff files. Tiff supports layers but again unless you need to print them commercially psd will suffice.

Why is the pictures fuzzy on Printshop 3.0 Professional


Regrettably, this is one of many known issues with Print Shop 3.0 and 3.0 Professional. If you haven't downloaded the patch from Encore, you should do so now; however, you need to know that many issues were not resolved with the patch. I opted out for a complete refund because the program simply could not deliver what was promised. I was a huge fan of previous versions until Print Shop 2.0 came along and I discovered it wasn't compatible with any of my saved projects. Stay tuned - although I haven't seen anything positive come from the zillions of complaints about the latest version I sense there is a great deal of scrambling going on in an effort to preserve the good reputation Broderbund has always enjoyed.

Print Shop 21 will not work on Windows 7 operating system is there a fix?


When a ‘clean’ install is done of Print Shop 22, exactly as described in this FAQ

'Clean' Install on Win98/Me/XP/2000/Vista/Win7

Print Shop 22 should install on a 64-bit version of Windows 7, with two incidents.

1. If .NET Framework 1.1 is not already installed on the computer, the "Program Compatibility Assistant” in Windows 7 will display this message
this program has know compatibility issues


To continue with the installation, select "Run Program". After .NET Framework 1.1 is installed, the necessary updates will be pulled from the Microsoft Windows Update Service.

2. After .NET Framework 1.1 is installed, the "Program Compatibility Assistant” in Windows 7 will display a message which says that there are compatibility issues with Print Shop 22 on Windows 7 64-bit. To continue with the installation of .NET Framework 1.1, select "Run Program".

NOTE: Even though the Print Shop 22 Vista patch, which can be found here

Download Vista Patch For The Print Shop 22 and PrintMaster 17 Disk Versions

can be installed on a 64-bit version of Windows 7, the patch will not fix the problem with the Amyuni Document Converter, as it does on a 32-bit version of Windows 7 (see above). So, it will not be possible to use the 'Save As PDF' option with Print Shop 22 on a 64-bit version of Windows 7. Instead, it will be necessary to install an alternate PDF driver, then Print to PDF, as is described in this FAQ

Save as PDF vs File | Print to PDF

So far, the only other known incompatibility with Print Shop 22 on a 64-bit version of Windows 7 is that Print Shop 22 cannot be run from a shortcut on the Dell Dock that is provided with many Dell computers. A Print Shop 22 shortcut can be placed on the Dell Dock; but, attempts to start Print Shop 22 from that Dell Dock shortcut will cause several incompatibility messages to be displayed

Swift FAmily Ancestry v 2.0


I found a few places you can buy it, though none of them seem to specify if it's version 2.0.

You can purchase and download it directly from here: http://my-buy-it-now.com/products-page/downloads/swift-family-ancestry-family-tree-maker-downloadable/

Or you can order boxed versions to get shipped to you from these places:
disks o plenty
Amazon


Also, it looks like Swift Family Ancestry creates files in gedcom file format. Many other genealogy programs can open that file format, so if you found a different program that you liked better, you may be able to open your file with that other program, also.

Print Master Gold 16 compatible with Windows 7?


Compatibility Wizard
1. Open the Program Compatibility Wizard by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Programs, and then clicking Use an older program with this version of Windows.
2. Follow the instructions in the wizard.
If you cannot install a program, insert the installation disc for the program and, using the wizard, browse to the program's setup file, usually called Setup.exe, Install.exe, or something similar. The wizard is not designed to work on programs that have an .msi file name extension.
To change compatibility settings manually for a program, right-click the icon for the program, click Properties, and then click the Compatibility tab.

At the top left of the page the are links to the PDF Creator and the Required GPL Ghostscript 8. The program will not function without it. Both programs work with x64 Vista. Read the website for the other benifits or the program.

Saving projects


I have not used Print Shop in years but i always was able to save to a file then save it to a disc using cd writing software. Just take notice of where your files are being saved. I think you can use the save as function and choose a spot to save it for easy retrivial then close the print shop and open up cd writing software and save the project to a disc.
