After logging in and setting my preferences to how I like them, my first task was to actually take a snapshot. Although I love this new viewer (the interface is so phenomenally organized and there are so many neat new features) I am a bit lost and confused as to what to do about this snapshot situation.
First just to give you a bit of a background, I am running Windows 7 and my video card is Nvidia Geforce 7800 GT w/256MB. My screen resolution 1440×900. In the past I typically shot pictures at least twice (usually 3 times) my screen size. In this new viewer I’m having severe issues shooting anything above 1600×1200.
I’m waiting for the next release, hoping all this will be resolved. Till then to take pics I will have to return to the old viewer. However, I love everything else about the new one. The interface can be daunting and will take some time to get used to, but it includes some much needed features. My favorite was the tattoo layer. I think I’ll be experimenting a lot with that one, I already had some fun making my strawberry face tattoo! :D So if you haven’t tried it yet, I really think you should. I know it’s beta and there are still lots of glitches to swim through, but it’s very promising and I look forward to the next release.
Here are some important links about the new viewer:
