Comment by Leo Nguyen on September 20, 2016 at 8:00am

Ken, sorry about the late reply. Didn't see your post. Somehow, Ning server truncated a few emails notification. I've found a few issues since then. I'll make a post.

  1. Logging off BBG on all my devices

  2. Disconnected the modem for internet service

  3. Rebooted the modem several times

  4. Logged on to my 4g service instead

Allen, what are your levels of photo editing? Intermediate, or full blown willy nilly?

Comment by Allen Morgan on September 23, 2014 at 7:00pm

Leo, do you have a safe download site for Jasc Paint Shop Pro?  I've been using v8.0 for years, but have realized they have several, more recent, versions out.

You are more than welcome Carl. Just a few minutes of servicing every other week will prevent so many headaches.
