This error occurs generally when the source file of one or multiple images cannot be found in the photo book folder on your computer. This error message will appear for any missing image. In this case, we advise you to click on "OK" or to press the enter key on your keyboard until the error message(s) disappear.
If you open your photo book and all the images are missing, this means that the creator tool can no longer locate the image files that were used. When you place your images in your photo book, the software saves a copy of the image in your photo book folder under: "Documents" ▸ "Bonusprint" ▸ <Title of your book>. Please check this folder to see if the image files are saved there. They should be saved under the names “_1”, “_2”, “_3”, “_4” etc.
If the image files are no longer in this folder, the error message pops up when opening your photo book.
How can I search for the files on my computer?
It may happen that the image files are stored in a different location. This means that the creator tool can no longer find the images. You can check if the images are still on your computer in the following way:
1. Click on "Start" and then on "Search".
2. Enter "_1" and search.
3. When you have created several photo books, multiple images with the name "_1" will be displayed. In that case, check which image is the right one. Right-click on the found image and choose "Open file location". The location of the image files will now be visible.
4. Copy all the images that are in this folder and paste them in "Documents" ▸ "Bonusprint" ▸ <Title of your book>. After this you should be able to open your photo book with all the images in it, without geting the same error message.
If you can no longer find your image files via the search function on your computer, the only possible solution is to manually place the original images in your photo book again.
