Survey Participants - Free Images Correction

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

Hello everyone and a big thank you to those who took the time to participate in our survey. I wanted to touch base regarding some problems encountered with the free image download pdf given for participating.  An error occurred for some people when trying to download the images.

Here’s a sneak peek for everyone of the free images pdf:

There are two ways to fix the problem with the pdf.  The problem is with Adobe Acrobat Reader 6 or 7.  If you upgrade to the newest version of Acrobat which is 9.0, you should have no trouble with your pdf.

The easiest way to solve this problem is to save the pdf after it’s downloaded (even if it looks like a blank page) to your computer. Once saved, you should be able to open it up on your computer and the images will be visible.

We apologize for this problem and hope everyone is able to retrieve their free images.

Thanks so much and look for that next post for the first giveaway!!

Until next time…
