You'd have to use the "Open With" feature if you mean from a file browser like Windows Explorer.

If you don't see it listed as one of the choices, use the Browse feature to find it. You'll find the PhotoME folder under C:\Program Files (x86) on newer versions of Windows.

Jim C,
Two apologies due .
1.I should have gone into Photo Me and then My Docs My Pics and opened the image.Duuuhh!
2.I realise this is off topic and I should have started a new thread.
Sorry about that.
Many thanks

You can use the "Open With" choice and select Photo ME after you right click on one, too (you don't have to open Photo ME first).

Just use the "Open With" menu choice after you right click on an image. You just may have to browse for it the first time you use that feature (as it may not be in the programs list for images by default with the beta version, or that's what I found with my PC when running running 64 bit Win 7). But, after you use it once that way, it will show up in the available programs list the next time you use the Open With choice (or it did on my PC). You'll just have to go to the right folder to find it (under "Programs (x86)" versus "Programs" if you're running a 64 bit version of Windows).

Thanks again Jim,
It's all up and running now.I had to browse my way through hoops but as you said,, once I had found it and used it, it's now under "open with".
Regards
Deadshot.

rctoyguy - Your exposure settings are all over the place: from 1/2000" at F/7.0 and ISO 1250, to 1/100" at f/4.5 and ISO 2500. What were you using?
I was basically putting it in "sports" mode and trying to only adjust the ISO setting. Making the ISO as low as I could make it and still keep what I thought would be a fast enough shutter speed.
some of it might have been in full auto, but I believe most of them would have been in sports mode or possibly "P" - but the only setting I touched (at least on purpose - hehe) was ISO.

I found I was taking over 500 pictures per game (this age group game time is 90minute) and keeping about 20% of what I shot, with a few within that 20% being especially good, at least to my eyes.

If I saw a play developing, I'd just frame it and fire off about 8 or 10 pictures.

Jimc you are not ready yet to use a dslr because this amchine will deliver its best when its not on automatic setting so learn on shutter speed aperature and iso and when you know well about those things, now you are ready to use a dslr

The D3000 doesn't have it's own autofocus motor, so if the Quantaray Tech-10 doesn't have one either, it won't AF. Also, Quantaray's lenses are usually rebranded Sigma lenses. The Tamron 70-300 Di LD is a better choice.
