I have been playing with this and figured out whats going on I think. If I create a new picture and do the process it works fine. Once you turn the program off and reload it, the photos I have saved, if I try and load these, it down loads the photo as a internet short cut, must be trying to load as a world photo. I think this explains the 1 kb file size and then the buried 275 kb phot in it? I'm not that good on computers "language"
