Works OK for me. Unpacked, installed, ran it. Tried it with a few pictures -- it converted them to AVI video. Please note that the best results are obtained with pictures of moderate sizes, e.g. 640x480 pixels (most digital cameras will produce much larger pictures, which may cause the codec or this software to malfunction -- in my case it did not cope very well with 5 megapixel pictures). I used another portable freeware to convert all pictures to 640x480 (this was Irfan View, also known as I_VIEW). Hope it will work for you too. Excellent small program.

I had the same problem as Local...installing it normally it works, but try to move it to another directory and no go...is this app really portable (using v1.05)?

Ben on 2008-03-14 16:16

Very strange...it seems to not run if an Explorer Window for the program folder is open...create a shortcut, place it somewhere else, close the open program folder, then run the shortcut, and all's well...?

Few minor bugs were fixed and the installer was improved.

Improvements since v2.1:

Gif optimization options are all selected by default.

Piv files are loaded faster since the timeline frames are re-drawn faster.

There are 2 new buttons to move the current figure in front or behind the other figures. This is useful when there are multiple figures with different colours.

Piv and Stk files can now be opened by dragging them over the pivot.exe icon or double clicking on them. See below for how to associate the files with pivot.

quote @tc: You can stop the intro photo by editing photoscape.cfg, and turning intro.photoOn from on to off. You could also edit the url, to point to a local image

I installed on USB with 7zip.
In addition to tc's message: if you make photoscape.cfg read-only, it will keep it's settings in the cfg file.

I also deleted the plugins dir (unwanted toolbar in there), and renamed the file PSMsgHook.dll in the main folder to PSMsgHook.dllold.

Although I've moved over to freeware options for most things I do, I've maintained use of Microsoft Photo Manager for years when working on my own photo collection. Today however, I was on a machine without it so I got PhotoScape up and found I actually prefer it.

Every few months I discover something new and cool with this program.  Animated GIF tricks, photo edit functions, framing tricks, and photo collages. Today it was dragging and dropping an image onto the program icon and seeing the wealth of edition, annotation, and symbol tools available.
