All of my pictures flicker when I start to add to my layout page so I can not select a file. Has happened for 3 days. It basically destroys my program because it makes it useless without pictures. What do I do?
This is strange as I am having it flicker while opening each folder & picture. Very frustrating & too slow to even use if file isn't under 5 items.. Does any one know what to do? I have never had this happen in all my yrs. of SBM...
I am running a windows 7 64 bit. I have McAfee as my virus protection. My computer is up to date with all of its updates. My images and content are saved in SB Max default folders. My SB Max version is 188.8.131.52 Internet explorer 9. This just came up out of the blue. I noticed that others had mentioned this problem and mine was fine. Then one day there is the flicker from all of the options (embellishments, shapes, paperscraps and pictures). I have tried the fixes from the other thread without any changes in the flickr problem. Hope this info can help pinpoint the problem.
I'm the original poster. My operating system is Windows Xp, computer is up to date, and my scrapbook and pictures are saved in "My Pictures" folder.
It completely shuts down the program because you can not add anything to your layout - pictures, embellishments, scraps, everything.
I have worked on an ancestor album for my son for 2 years (had to stop due to 2 major back surgeries which makes it hard to sit at a computer) and was trying to finish it for the holidays. Please tell me how to fix it.
I am having the same flicker problem. I hadn't used SBM for some time and upgraded to V2 when I resintalled my laptop a couple of months ago. I installed V1.x and loaded all the V1.x templates and kits, and then installed V2 and loaded the V2 templates and kits. The flicker problem started from my first use - I thought it was due to converting the templates and embellishments to V2 but it is also happening with my photos.
When I go to use a template, embellishments, photo folder etc for the first time SBM appears to cycle through all the images creating a "flickering" effect due to the screen refresh as it cycles through each item. Once that folder has been completed it appears to be fine to use thereafter. It is as if SBM is rendering the images or creating a library...or something! For large photo collections it is taking forever to cycle through the images so that they can be used. SBM is unusable in this state
My laptop is runing Windows 7 Professional 32 bit. Windows is up to date. SBM version is 184.108.40.206.
My flicker is the same as ps_public. It just started last week. I cannot use my larger files as it is continually running each one then starts over for the next. I am up to date with upgrades & am using windows 7.
I know this may sound like an odd suggestion....have you tried switching off your virus checkers/security and see if that changes how it works
I suggest this as I know of one person who has to switch off hers off (macfee) as it has been causing her problems with several graphics programs
Also I tend to take out any kits and template sets I am not using and store them on my external drive as I have found when I have too many kits/templates in max they slow the program down way too much for my impatient self xx
