Well, I feel completely and totally ripped off. I paid $40 for a program that doesn't do *anything*. It will not transfer from iPhoto to the iPhone, the method of 'adding' to the iPhone, my plus sign is greyed out. It won't add from iPhoto to the iPhone. I figured maybe I had to buy the program first. Nope. That didn't do it. $40 down the drain. What a complete and total waste. The program doesn't do what it says it does.
