Default Bye Bye, MediaPlus.

I didn't find MediaPlus listed in the new Serif web site.

I presume this means MediaPlus has finally been ended.

I used it for viewing thumbnails of old DrawPlus files (DP3-DP7) and PhotoPlus. It was invaluable for this and it was even possible to drag&drop the selected file into the Drawplus page. I bet not many people knew that! It doesn't work for the X versions which is a pity.

Hiya Elderflower


Just to let you know you are still in full bloom in places around here. I think of you with every bush I pass.

I like media plus. It is 'lightweight' on computer resources. I still use it for bulk batch processing of all my photos to smaller preview ones ("palmprints" not thumbnails), much smaller files to keep handy for quick access and visual searching, and for giving away.

It is also useful for creating a web page with expandable thumbnails and allows a basic page to be created which can then be edited nicely. Accessible html unlike some web design software!

I have seen it as a magazine cover disk. I would like to see it continue to be developed if only to address some minor issues. Keep it simple.

So why does Add/Remove programs (Windows Control Panel) show:
MediaPlus 2.0 634MB ?!!!

However, when I go looking at folders within C:'s progrsm folder, it's properties show 45MB

I need to exterminate the weak and the unfit from a C: partition with only 2% free space.

It is typical of me that @ve had this program lying around for years and only install it when it is obsolete. I needed it to upload photos from a camera: is there a better alternative?

Ya can't believe everything that Windows tells you, and one of those things is the "size" shown in Add/Remove programs.

If you are having disk space problem, check this out.

I bought a Transcend 500GB StoreJet [which is the size of your palm] and copied and back up all 250 GB of my hard drives and thousand of photos.

What I have is just like a mobile PC in my pocket. When I am on the road I can just connect it to my laptop. When I am at home it is an extension of my hard drive.

I am never out of space wherever I am.

The price to me I feel is cheap as it less than US100. There are may options with variable disk space which is cheaper.

StoreJet.
