OS X or System 9. We haven't conclusively tested Leopard yet

Pictures that you save in KaleidoDraw are stored in the KaleidoDraw
folder on your computer. They can be opened with other programs
for e-mailing and anything else you can think of. Avoiding the
potential of disk clutter, we chose to limit the number of saved
pictures within the program to 10. When you've saved more than
that amount, you'll be asked to replace an earlier picture. On
Windows the pictures are named "kPix01 > kPix10.bmp.
On Macs, the pictures are named kPix01 > kPix10.pict. Drag
them into other applications or open by doing a search from within
another application. Save the pictures to a different location.
The results you get will depend on your printer and the kind
of paper you use. Photo quality glossy and matte produce very
nice pictures. You can also print on iron-on transfer paper to
decorate t-shirts, etc. KaleidoDraw will open your printer "driver"
where you'll be asked to go ahead and print or change various
settings. See your printer manual for more help.
Attach your pictures to the note you'd like to send. Do a search
for "kPix" when you try to locate the picture. All
of your saved pictures are stored in the KaleidoDraw folder on
your hard drive.
