    HI EVERYBODY, AFTER SITTING AT MY COMPUTER FOR 1 1/2 HOURS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO MAKE THIS PHOTO CONVERTER WORK (AND AFTER READING EVERYONES FRUSTRATED COMMENTS) I FOUND THE PHOTO CONVERSION TOOL AT http://lamp.marthastewart.com/Glitter/index.php. CLICK ON THE LINK. NOW THIS IS THE IMPORTANT PART, SO PAY ATTENTION!!! THE TOOL DOES NOT WORK BUT BELOW THE FILL-IN SPACE IT SAYS: POWERED BY VICTORMAGIC. CLICK ON THAT!!! IT WILL TAKE YOU TO THE SITE WHERE THEY ACTUALLY CONVERT YOUR PHOTO.

    Thank you CharleneKay! i used the link and it works great. I'm halfway through my glitter painting and so excited to try another one! one tip i suggest for first-timers is to make larger "batches" of mixed colors than you think you'll need. I tried to use my glitter sparingly when making a mix that didn't need to cover much area of the picture, however later when i wanted to touch up areas or fill in, i didn't have the same mix.

    Why did you take the glitter photo conversion tool away? Please put it back!

  • fwwt8440 25 May, 2012

    It's almost June 2012 and this still doesn't work - maybe it's time to take it off the site instead of frustrating people.
    There's no point in offering something that doesn't work -
    IT'S NOT A GOOD THING!

  • Theanna 7 Nov, 2009

    I had no trouble and have been registered, just read it better.

  • Corny-Friend 6 Nov, 2009

    No way to use the Photo Conversion Tool if you're already registered. Site asks for new registrations only. Very frustrating. Help!
