after 2.5 hours on the phone last night with the HP tech support guy i finally was able to load the new print shop program to my computer.
had some fun this morning figuring out things that i can do with it. it is a really easy program and i will have to figure out more things with it later. if you're looking for a new program to play around with, and you have windows 7, this is a good one. it has some great photos, all of the ones above are from print shop.
