    :rolleyes: Maybe the downloaded file got corrupt, so uninstalling and re-downloading the file can help.
    file size: 6.060.032 kb (Platforms: win98/Me/NT/2k/XP)

    If the problem returns, then I don't have a clue what's going on. o_O

    Good to hear. Sure learning to use it is another story. Isn't there an helpfile included?
    Didn't look for one as I've already Paint Shop Pro (= not free).
    Can't find tutorials at their website, although it's listed. I always get an error. :doubt:

    Enjoy playing with it. Trial & error is the best way to do it. :D

    :rolleyes: What do you mean by 'can't keep the animation? It's not a gif animator, but a graphics program. You can do some amazing stuff with it, like I showed in the previous topic 'Screenshot'.
    Congratulations on the resizing. :cool: Try some effects to see what it does to your picture, not an animated GIF. Afterwards you can try to add layers like text, pictures and so on.
    Here's an example of what you can do with it and so much more.

    Edit: removed previous pic as there might be copyright. :rolleyes:

    Yes, I've posted the link before. No tutorials. :doubt:

    I've edited the previous post, because it's not my design. I've replaced the pic with one of mine. :)

    OK Eldar, mate :) you will have to stop posting these GFX proggies, :eek: as you know me, I like image playing and now here's *another* great looking app to play with. ~sighs~.. so many apps, not enough time. lol... :D

    Seriously, that looks like one heck of a program and for free to boot, well, you cannot beat the price.
    For such a program the 2.8Mb size is terrific also.

    Nice find. :cool:

    Cheers, TAS..

    Difficult to resist. :D
    Yes, we're looking at the same page. It says 2.8MB, but in fact when downloading you get 6.060.032 kb. :rolleyes:
    I think the webpage wasn't updated, but the program was.
    I'm going to play with it later this evening, but it looks very promessing for a free one.
    You haven't seen my collection yet of commercial and freeware. *puppy*

    See you later. ;)

    Strange. I missed this post before and I went looking for an easier to use Graphics program than PSP 9 and found RahmanImager, just tonight. Had never heard of the company before but decided to try it anyway.
    I'm impressed! Looks like a fairly user friendly program that will do all I need. Would like to know if going with the Gold version is worth the dixk space. So far, I really like this proggie and can't believe the guy gives these away.

    Hi root,
    :rolleyes: It all depends on what you want to do with it. RahmanImager gives you graphic tools and the Gold version gives you the more advanced tools like:
    # Generate Screensaver from group of image files (any formats) or from Oriens utilities Project (OUP)
    # Generate Slide from group of image files (any formats) or from OUP file.
    # Generate AVI video from group of image files with custom resolution (any formats).
    # Generate Image Executable with effects
    # Extract Icons/Images from EXE/DLL/FRX/CTX/CDX,CDO,PGX
    # Convert ASCII files (html, txt, css) to PDF on the fly
    # Full buffer region for UNDO/REDO actions (upto 100 Levels)

    Do you need these? If not, then there's no need to download the Gold version. ;)
