Just saw that it is discontinued. Not sure where else to post? Is there another way/ workaround for all the wisp graphic packages I purchased?
I should have something clever to say... but I don't.

Web Image Studio has been retired. :)

If you would like to use these graphics you just need to manually extract the PNG out of the WISP/WIF files. To do that, here is what you need to do:

1. Rename wach .WISP file to .ZIP
2. Uncompress the .ZIP file to obtain all the individual .WIF files in the package.
3. Rename each .WIF file to ZIP.
4. Uncompress each .ZIP file to obtain the .PNG file.

Phew.... ;)

Phew is right! Ok. Thanks. For some reason I thought they were vector graphics?

They were when using WIS. This is a manual way to get the source file out.

For those who don't remember (I had to look it up), use the DOS command rename:
Put all the files you want to convert in a folder, then:
ren *.wif *.zip
this will convert all the wif files to zip files, then follow the directions as given.

So what is going to happen to the image editor and Direct FTP?
