PhotoDraw 2000 problems opening digital photos
Posted 12 April 2008 - 11:49 AM
I have reinstalled PhotoDraw from the original disk 3 of the 4-disk Office 2000 Update set, but there has been no improvement. Microsoft's help website is remarkably silent about PhotoDraw.
Has anyone out there had a similar problem and solved it? I'm baffled. PhotoDraw has a number of bells and whistles that aren't available on simpler programs, especially effects, the ability to add text and non-photo-graphics, and the variety of formats for saving finished work; and it is easier and quicker to use than PhotoShop. I really like it and want to continue using it.
What do you think? Thanks.

Wish Microsoft never stopped supporting this program, I loved it. My 'major' work around was to familiarize myself with Adobe Photoshop instead, big jump from Photoshop.

I found this problem to be more a file size issue rather than a DPI issue although reducing DPI does also reduce file size. In my case, I have found that by reducing the file size by way of reducing the picture size, Photodraw is happy.
Original Photo - Will not open in Photodraw
File size 5.6Mb
Resized Photo - Will open in Photodraw
File size 2.97Mb
I found that by keeping the file size below 3Mb I do not have anymore problems. My camera is a Nikon D3100.
As with gabumoon, I started using Photoshop due to this problem with Photodraw, but after finding out the problem - just use Photoshop to re-size using a fractal resizer plugin and then continue with Photodraw. Where Photoshop is far more powerful, I find Photodraw fits my requirements better.
Hope this helps someone
ADDED: Found this which I have applied and works perfectly now - no resize required. Apparently this is an Official Microsoft Fix
* Graffics Filter file JPEGIM32.FLT has been damaged, corrupted, or is missing entirely, possibly as a result of some software overwriting the correct version, which they are apparently unwilling to specify.
Their solution is to rename the filter file (in the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Grphflt\ directory) with a .old extension and reinstall the correct version either from the Office CD or the OS CD.
