"What would happen if we all tried to be like Santa and learned to give as only he can give: of ourselves, our talents, our love and our hearts? Maybe we could all learn Santa's beautiful lesson and maybe there would finally be peace on Earth and good will toward men."

This is so new to me. Do you need a special software to download and open the files? Can they be opened in a Word document?
It depends on the digi. Most of the time you can click on the digi and it will move to a new window. Then, right click, save as picture, and put it in a folder on your computer-I always make a folder for each designer so I can give them credit when I use the design.
Other times, you purchase the design and they will send you the link to download to your computer. Does that help at all? It's not hard.
Generally speaking, you usually either get your digi's in JPG or PNG format. I believe I've only seen JPG format for freebies, but you never know. I know you can open JPG in MS Word - you can also size them in there. I believe you have to go to Insert > Object, but I've never done it so you might want to look for a thread that gives real instructions (I've seen it, just don't know where it is exactly) .
I don't know if you can open PNG in Word. I use PSE 9 for all my photo editing/digi printing. I know that the difference is that JPEG is like a picture and PNG has a transparent background - but I don't know if that makes a difference to Word.
Hope that helps a little! Good Luck!
