Windows 7: MS Photo Editor

Wow,

You know, it took me two years as well to get it working! Usually I am very good at solving my pc problems, but after trying numerous things, it didn't work surprisingly. I ended up turning to other programs temporarily, but it was not to my liking.

I am glad I joined this forum and found the simplest answer. I did try it the hard way at first and it didn't work, so there you go....two years later and BLESS MS PHOTO EDITOR AND DSSTEALTH FOR POSTING IT!!!!!

I am as happy as a clam! I am also now seeking a photo editor where you can take one character and add it to another picture...example: an actor from one movie and add another actress to make it look flawles....anyone have any suggestions?

Lilly, But are clams really that happy? MS Photo Editor is still the best and most intuitive after all these years. My 64 bit on the desktop works fine. The 32 bit on the laptop works ok but gets some kind of graphic interference on the picture (stripes and misplaced pixels) when you zoom down too deep. You can still edit and they go away when you zoom back out. Wonder what this might be. Bill

I am not sure if clams are truly happy....good point by the way, , however when it comes to MS photo editor, I agree that it's great! As for your problem, is there enough memory on your pc or the type of photo you are trying to edit, it all depends. I know it's not a great answer, just a suggestion.

I would try to find a topic on pixels and maybe you might find your answer. I am certainly not a professional pc user, but I do alot of research on forums. I love Ms photo editor, but I am also looking for another photo editor where I can combine two pics together where it looks flawless. Still researching on this.

I hope you find the answer you seek!

I know I'm extremely late to this party, but I've been so sad since I finally had to leave my beloved XP behind and lose Microsoft Photo Editor. I downloaded it to a laptop which has Win7 64 bits and I think I ran/installed it ok, but when I right click on a photo (.jpg) and go for the "open with" and select Microsoft Photo Editor, it actually opens with Microsoft Photo Viewer. I even tried restarting the computer and tried with several photos. BUT if I open Microsoft Photo Editor first, and ask it to open a photo, it will open it and let me edit it. I can't figure out how to make it my default "opener" (if I double-click on a photo) and I can't figure out why it shows up on the list of options (open with) but when selected, my photo opens with what I didn't select. Do you think you could help me with some advice? p.s. I'm not smart. Thank you!

I also am late to this post but I'll blame it on testing with Win10TP. I installed Photo Editor from my Office 2000 Premium disc on Win7 Home Premium to see if it worked, it did. Then I installed it on Win10TP, it worked but there were a couple of file issues before the program opened [may have deselected too many things in the Tools]. It still has the 3MB size limit. Both Win7 and Win10TP are Notebooks running the 64-bit OS. I did the Customize install and deselected everything but Photo Editor in the Office Tools section, ended up with a 44MB install size. [TIP: Office 2000 is the last not to need activation but does require the Product Key.]

DStealth, just wanted to say thanks (again) - couldn't get Photo Editor to work on my wife's W7-64 HP desktop, and the download from your site fixed it instantly!

I too want my photoEd back...

Trying to install from DStealth's 7Forums Page, but I got an error message "Service 'Microsoft Software Shadow Copy provider' (swprv) failed to start. Verify you have sufficient privileges to start system services."... Figured how to start the service, followed by Volume Shadow Copy (VSS) to get the install going, but... nothing seems to happen after... rebooted, still nothing...

Help please !
Thx, DB
