Kodak EasyShare software - is it so easy??

  Charlie Babbage 16:11 11 Sep 2005

I recently downloaded this app from click here. I should be interested to know if any other Forum members have experience of this and their views.

I accept that I might not have waded through all the Help pages but I'm finding it anything but easy! It's meant to allow you to print out your photos exactly on Kodak Picture Paper,
size 5 x 7 inches. I found that despite apparantly following the instructions, the app would only print part of my daughter's photo, although the whole image appears prior to selecting 'Print at Home'.

The other annyance is that there's Kodak Software Updater Agent which, when running, prevents other apps from starting and has to be closed down with Task Manager.

Any views or suggestions of better apps from members to exactly print photos would be appreciated.

Well a freebie from Google click here Picassa will do quite a lot considering its free.

As Totally-braindead says Picas2 is an excellent program. I ditched Kodak Easy share in favour of it.

If its just to print the photos 5 x 7 and not anything to do with editing them then you can just setup a custom size for your paper in properties of your printer ie instead of the paper being A4 you make up a custom size 5 x 7.

Digital Camera Software is best left in the box t mostly very flakey
Unload it and as suggested use Piccassa or any othe popular image aditors out there

However part printing of an image may well be another issue connested with PC Memory[not enough]
or spooling problems with printersoftware.

On some applications you have to set up the system by doing a test print.I too ditched Kodak easy share in favour of other image editors,Picassa among them.

I got that with my wifes camera but I could not get on with it so I uninstalled it and went back to MGI and XP's own camera wizard for getting pics from camera to hard drive

I ditched it as well. Picasa or Irfanview are better.

Ditched it here as well much better freebies out there

I'm glad that it's not just me! I'll now try Picassa.
