My Memories Suite finally released an update to fix the bugs in version 5. It’s very frustrating because every year My Memories Suite has a new release but they leave it to their customers to identify any problems associated with the release. In the past I’ve downloaded the new version as soon as it’s available but then I’d have to spend a lot of time working with technical support resolving problems. So when the new version was released, in November 2013, I resisted the urge to download it immediately. I read about the issues that others were experiencing and waited for the fixes.
While I was waiting I couldn’t write any new tutorials. I knew the software had a whole new look so if I had written any new tutorials they’d be rendered obsolete if only because of the new look. During that time I couldn’t recommend the software either knowing there were many issues to be resolved. And since I hadn’t downloaded the new version I couldn’t answer any questions or assist with any problems. I was very frustrated!
As soon as I heard the update had been released I downloaded the software and started testing it. I do like the new look and there are some new features I’m looking forward to trying. In the next few weeks I’ll be working on updating tutorials and reviewing the software. I’ve already updated one tutorial on color blocking using the photo-tiling feature. There wasn’t much to do since that feature still works the same. Check out the tutorial here.
Since you can now export pages and albums in pdf format I’m testing that with the color blocking tutorial. I’d love to know what you think. Please make comments on this post or on my Facebook page at facebook.com/Scraptious to let me know if you like it or not.
