Save the scanned image as a TIFF for archiving. TIFF files can beresaved and edited without compression loss, thus maintaining the highquality of an image. If you are enlarging an original 4 x 6 photo to8.5 x 11, save the scanned image as a TIFF at 600 dpi resolution. TIFFsprovide more detail than other file formats. Scanned images for emailand posting on the Web, which are to be viewed on a monitor, should besaved as JPEGs at 75 or 100 dpi. JPEGs generate smaller file sizes,which download faster on the Internet. Increase the resolution to 150or 300 dpi only if you are emailing a scanned JPEG image for therecipient to print. Save JPEGs at the maximum quality setting.
That sounds like a problem with the source file rather than PM. Open the image in a regular graphics program and save it under a different file name and as a JPG/JPEG format. Then try and import to PM.
Follow these tips to ensure your scanned photo turns out to be a stunning print.
You'll want a higher dpi when scanning an image that you want to print.
If you want to scan an image and reprint it at the same size, 300 dpi works best.
TIFFs are ideal for printing enlargements, but a JPEG will suffice if you are printing a 4" x 6" photo.
you are printing a 4" x 6" image as a JPEG, but think that you may
someday want to make a bigger print, archive a larger TIFF file of your
photo. Unlike JPEGs, TIFFs can be edited and resaved without
compromising the image quality.
I had the exact same problem and couldnt figure out what was going on...but I had a freak fix. I don't know how, but when I installed disc 4 (Picture It! 2000 Setup and Picture Disc) and disc 5 (Additional Art), I was able to access the program again. Hope this helps!
The building blocks of your image library are the actual file formats in which you save your images. There are two major formats: compressed and uncompressed.
• The advantage of uncompressed storage is that you can save a maximum amount of image-forming information for color fidelity and clarity.
• Compressed file formats get rid of some information to shrink the file size (thereby increasing a disk's storage capacity).
We recommend saving all your work-in-progress images (equivalent to the negatives in film cameras) as TIFF files. This way they will remain at maximum quality, so you can create other versions for printing or e-mailing, and can save them in smaller, compressed files like JPEGs. The advantage is that you'll always be able to recreate an effect or enhancement by starting with the original TIFF file without losing image integrity.
