In Topic: Imac 10.9.1 Does Not Recognize .asl Files (Styles)

12 March 2014 - 09:43 AM

Thanks so much Andrea for your help.  The workings of a computer are a complete mystery to me but I did attempt to understand what you are suggesting.  To answer your questions . . . I transferred my software to the new iMac.  All of my files are on either a Passport EHD or Iomega EHD.  I use Bridge to view the files which is what sounded the alarm.  When viewing Styles on my iMac laptop they appear as .asl files.  So when they appeared as grey boxes on my new iMac, I was perplexed.  However, when I tried to load a style, it was recognized.  Whew, now I feel like the little boy who called wolf too many times!  But it's reassuring to know that there is a community of knowledgable and caring ladies.   Than you :daisy:

I placed an order when ScrapGirls initially promoted Pro Digital Photos and was 100% satisfied with the results. The color was accurate and the quality was quite nice. However, when I recently placed a second order, although the printing was quite acceptable, I was disappointed that the paper had been trimmed incorrectly. I had designed cards to be printed on a 12x12 sheet and had placed crop marks so that I could cut the cards to size (two to a page) leaving a 1/4" white border around the edge. The top of the paper had been trimmed leaving only a 1/16" edge. (On the jpg file that I had sent, the cards were actually placed in the middle of the 12x12.) Now the cards were too small to coordinate with the envelopes and clear boxes that I had already ordered. I let the company know of my disappointment and was contacted on the phone by Veronica the following day. She apologized saying that they were training a new person on the press and it had been their error. She would personally supervise a re-order and send it out immediately. The cards just arrived and I could not be any more pleased.

Normally they do not print a project such as this. However, the key to success is to tell them NOT to trim. Communicate very clearly what you have in mind. She suggested using a 11x17 sheet. Or, I suggest using only one card per 12x12 sheet. Be sure to order their heavier paper (Press). If you order at least 20 pages, the cost would be $1.10 per sheet. You will need a scoring tool to fold the edges otherwise they will crinkle. Since I had ordered 100, I was trying to cut the cost by placing two cards on each sheet. I will definitely be ordering from this company again.
