I have to admit I love it. Its been a great shot of beauty much needed to counteract the austerity of the Windows 8 interface.

can't get it to run. Crashes explorer immediately after applying a dream.

I was so excited to play with this.. but the only effects this version offers is photo effects and snow. Is the only deference that it now works with windows 8? Also I looked thru tutorials and could not find one that gives me step by step instructions on how to create a dream for a novice like me. I took an awesome picture of a sailboat in LA and I wanted to add water effects. I run win7 and d/l'ed dreammaker and dreamseven.
