MIKE-aS I mentioned in my question-- l HAVE A LEGAL COPY OF OLYMPUS CAMEDIA 1.1 master BUT IT REQUIRES apple quick TIME AND image WRITER TO LOAD AS WELL. i CAN LOAD quick TIME BUT IMAGE WRITER WILL NOT LOAD.
also, i NOW HAVE A CANON POWERSHOT 25000 and no longer use my older Olympus camera.

I'm not sure why you asked about restoring your Olympus software if you don't want to use it anymore?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
that software costs $120 per year!!!!!. Why can't we load a legal copy of camedia, regardless of camera used?
Expert:  Mike the Mac Medic replied 1 year ago.

That's too much? Ok I thought you were using it for business. I gave you the link for the "legal" download of the Camedia software but it is for Olympus cameras I can't say if it will work with your Canon or not. Why not just use the Canon software? Go here and choose Drivers and Software:

i know the sot ware and i do want to use it. it provides ability to re-size non-proportionality and other controls that Windows Essential Live shot gallery does not have. I f windows essential shad it, I would and could use them but they only have proportional re-sizing.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i\ll check it but in the meantime, can you find a way to make Windows Essentials Live photo work to resize non-proportionally? If a plu- in will do, I can use that.that is the only capability i am missing. i would rather not have to learn a whole new product suite. also, Camedia does work with the cannon. i halve used it a long time. but now i have a new faster computer and i am trying to reload all the software i use.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
there are a lot of free p;aerograms out there. without me examining them all, do you know which might be the easiest to learn and use AND contain non-proportional resizing?
Expert:  Mike the Mac Medic replied 1 year ago.

Right which is why I gave you the link to the newer version of Camedia software at the start your old version is not working on your new computer....

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
WHICH ONE DO i DOWNLOAD. THERE IS A HUGE LIST THERE?
Expert:  Mike the Mac Medic replied 1 year ago.

What camera did you have?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
CANON POWERSHOT 25000
Expert:  Mike the Mac Medic replied 1 year ago.

Obviously I meant Olympus since this software is for Olympus cameras.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
WE DON'T USE THE OLDER CAMERA ANYMORE. THE CANON IS FASTER AND LOADS THRU A usb.
Expert:  Mike the Mac Medic replied 1 year ago.

I am opting out of this question.... Maybe another expert has an idea.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
OK. MAKE SURE THERE IS NO CHARGE ON MY CARD. THANKS ANYWAY.
