    About Picto Selector

    We have the experience that we can help our youngest son of 7 a lot when we visualize the daily tasks for him. Things like dry ing himself after taking a shower, taking a shower etc can be performed without our help after we visualized those tasks for him.

    Creating those visualizations was a lot of work, using Word with pictures is a pain. Especially when you want to change / move things around.

    Therefore I've created a application (i'm a software developer for 14 years now). To makes this easy. I'm currently sharing it for free and it is combined with 5000 pictures.

    Re: Picto Selector 1.0.7

    Some new features:

    - added several buttons with the most used function, for people who do not like to use the right mouse button menu
    - You can now also set a border for the Sclera pictos, this is usefull if you have reversed the colors and still want a border around it
    - added a "Send to Yahoo Group", not yet available for the english and french translation. But i'm developing a way to put the picto sheets online in a yahoo group. I will first do this for the dutch localization and then start with a english version
    - When openening a .pszip file in explorer it will be opened by the active picto selector

    The new version can be installed by selecting the menu item "Check for updates" in the "File" menu.

    Picto Selector 1.0.8

    Hi,

    I changed the way email can be send from Picto Selector. Before it was depending on Microsoft Office to send email. Now a online connection is all you need.
    The Dutch localization has now a nice windows with some explanation how people can send their picto sheets to the 'cookbook'. A yahoo group with the work of other users. When enough people are interested I will create such groups for other localizations.

    The new version can be installed by selecting the menu item "Check for updates" in the "File" menu.

    How do you mean? When taking a shower? We are no longer needed to tell him the order in which he should wash himself. For alot of other things mammy is still needed. No need to start a permanent holiday.
