I just purchased V6

I have Photoshows on my PC from 4 and 5 and perhaps even earlier and see no way to upload them or access them.

I can't even play them because of Flash errors

Windows 7,

Did you download the desktop version? If so , you should be able to search for them in a folder. Thge photoshows have that extension (photoshow). You should be able to open them in the desktop version and then upload them.

Did you have the very early versions that came with a cable company or similar? Those may be gone forever.

They are asking me by email to renew when Windows 10 is not compatible.

I guess Photoshow is on its way out and all the shows I once made will go with it into oblivion.

 

I renewed last year but shall not do so for 2016 unless someone can tell me what the future is...?

 

The Chat help is there, but closed without an attendant.

Downloaded the shows as best as I could but the software to open and run are crippled.

You resurrected a 3 year thread for a program that is basically obsolete and dead

Craig,  Find an old computer running W7; W 8 or 10 won;t work.  The problem is a result of a Microsoft security update.

 

Once you find the W7 computer, install PhotoShow and then download ALL your PhotoShows to your computer.  Once they are downloaded, you can convert them to wmv or mpg2 files which will play on about everything.

 

If you don't need the PhotoShow web site to share your pictures, Corel has a non-web program that is very inexpensive.  Fast Flicks (here)
