Re: Cannot Save or Save As except in PSP format

Problem solved (I think)!
I have found the serial number and reinstalled PSP x8. Uninstalling and reinstalling the program has fixed the problem with saving graphic files. I have been able to re-save a graphic file in a format (JPG) other than PSPimage. Hoping this fix is permanent.

Re: Cannot Save or Save As except in PSP format

Yes, I've been looking for details of my Corel account from 2016 (I don't think it is the same login as for this forum).
I have a confirmation email for today's website query but no quote of what I put into the ticket.

Re: Cannot Save or Save As except in PSP format

I found the PSP installer file on a portable drive. But another problem: in trying to install PSP again, it asks for the serial number. I now don't have a record of it because I uninstalled the program - or if I do have a record, I don't know where it is. Earlier today I contacted Corel directly on ...

Re: Cannot Save or Save As except in PSP format

Yes, I have discovered this. I have uninstalled PSP X8. What is the file name of the installation program for PSP X8? I assume it is on my computer. I need this to reinstall, then maybe I'll upgrade to a recent version.

Re: Cannot Save or Save As except in PSP format

Update: having posted the above message, I've found a large EXE file of 439Mb in my Downloads folder, called Corel_CreativeCollection_PSPX8. It's dated March 2016, which coincides with when I purchased PSP.
I'm assuming this contains not only PSP but all the other programs than came with it.

Re: Cannot Save or Save As except in PSP format

Hi, I have carried out the instructions and have run the DISM/Restore Health program in Windows 10. However, my PSP program is still rejecting being able to save any graphic files in any format except PSPimage. My original intention, in my first posting, was to uninstall and reinstall PSP, hoing tha...

Re: Cannot Save or Save As except in PSP format

Replying to previous two responses by Forriner and Jean-Luc: When right-clicking the Start button CMD is not available, but Windows Powershell and Windows Powershell (Admin) are. I had no idea! I have not yet attempted to run "DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth" in Powershell. So far as ...

Re: Cannot Save or Save As except in PSP format

I have tried to follow those Windows instructions to run "DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth" , but when I run CMD there is no way I can select the pop-up option for "Run as Administrator", as there is no pop-up - it goes straight to the command window. I cannot run "DISM.exe /Online /Cl...

Re: Cannot Save or Save As except in PSP format

I'm posting this about three weeks after previous posting. The same problem is occurring again. This time, though, I am carrying out the instructions to reset PSP to default state, but I cannot save a file in any format but the native PSPIMAGE. I have followed the instructions for Option 1 and Optio...

Re: Cannot Save or Save As except in PSP format

Hi,
That solution was successful! I have reset the program, and have re-saved a JPG file to a new file name using Save As, and have saved a new sample file to JPG.
Thank you!

Cannot Save or Save As except in PSP format

Hi, I am using PSP X8. Everything has been OK since installing some four years ago, until now - I mainly use it to scan, then crop, resize, enhance etc. I have just scanned some images in PSP and attempted to save them as JPG files, but the program kept on reporting there had been a file error in sa...

Re: Applying text - previous text appears

I'm using version 18.3.0.13.
That solution works. Thank you very much!
"Remember Text" isn't in the User Guide at all.

Applying text - previous text appears

Hi, I rarely use PSP to add text to an image. The last time I did so was about three years ago. Last night, in a new image I was putting together in PSP, I click the Text tool, and clicked on the image where I wanted the text to go. Some text from three years ago kept on appearing. Today, I opened a...

Thanks for the replies on the off-topic question about painting or erasing in vertical and horizontal lines - have made notes. Appeciated.

Re: Changing one colour to another throughout entire image

Wow! Excuse my naivete, but what great ideas and results! I am making notes of all this. While I am here, can I ask a small off-topic question? I've looked through the manual, and tried googling search terms, and haven't seen an answer. If I am using Erase or Paint Brush, how can I make a change by ...
