Could you give a little more information about what you've downloaded, and where from, where you've put it etc. I don't quite get the "ASL portion" or the XMLmetadata stuff. I don't have PSE8 or Vista but maybe we can investigate.
PSE6 on WinXP, Pentax K10d...... and now a Canon G10.
I think you need to write the metadata yourself, or use Add-O-Matic (Graffi). I know that on http://www.scrappersguide.com/forums there is a detailed guide to writing the metadata. Personally I found Graffi's Add-O-Matic saves me a lot of headaches and time.
Tennie -- Thank you for your response. I had found that site earlier and it sounded way to difficult for this old brain to understand, I had the Add-O-Matic at one time but my hard drive crashed and I had to replace it. I guess I will have to get it again. You are right, it is much easier that way. Again, Thank You
