This goodie came with my computer. In the future I want to use it in Windows 7 when that day arrives.

Is the software available to download into Windows 7?

PS: I think the software came from Windows XP but it might have come with Office 2003. I am not totally sure which one the program came from. BUT I remember seeing in in my first computer which I ruined in every way possible.

PSS: Can a disc from Windows XP be loaded onto Windows 7? It would be nice to get Picture It for Windows 7. I make pictures for videos, and it really helped me be more creative.

mrmontage - Picture It! is no longer supported and you can't find it anymore, but there are a lot of nice alternatives out there :)
PhotoFiltre is free and very, very nice!
They also offer a shareware version that supports layers, called Photofiltre Studio. It is a nice and very affordable program with lots of options.

Another way to simply edit photo's is Irfanview. Irfanview is a small viewer but packed with options (one of my all-time favorites ;D) and lately the option to edit images has also been included, though it is limited.

There is also The Gimp, nowadays with a more PhotoShop like interface, which is free and has all the options a great image editor should have, but that might be a bit over the top :)

Is it possible to copy the program Windows XP onto a jump drive and load it onto a new computer with Windows 7?

You might try, but I don't think it will work. It needs it's registry entries I think. Particularly MS programs have a lot of those LOL.

Btw what do you mean by this "Can a disc from Windows XP be loaded onto Windows 7" ? And by this "to copy the program Windows XP onto a jump drive" ?
Do you mean the program Picture It! that was intended for windows XP or am I reading you wrong?
If it is a properly developed program (like you would expect from MS) you should be able to install it on 7.
I still work with Office 97 and it installed like a charm on Vista, though it was developed when Win98 was top notch.
So if you can find the installation cd you should be able to install it.

mrmontage, you better believe what was said. It just won't work - one way or another. Suggest you follow Sarah's suggestions. There is also FastStone Image Viewer ( http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm ) that has a lot of function. And that works in Win7.
