Curious to know if anyone else is running I-Picture software on Windows 8, as I just Installed it on my new computer and it's slower than molasses, it took about 10 minutes to process a very simple dome design I hate to think how long for something more complicated.
Helpful idea I found, is that when using some images that say have background all the way out to the edges, it is best to add a white border around the edges maybe 1/4". This will help with the x axis wandering off. From experience every time I have tried without the white border around the edge, the x axis wanders off on some skewed angle and ruins the piece.
Version 1.1 is only for the 1015 it wont work with the 1013, the only other thing I can think off is to right click on the program exe file and set the properties to run as an older version of windows. That should be listed under compatibility settings.
