If you’re a user of Storybook Creator or Memory Manager, two software products I’ve recommended in the past, take note: Panstoria.com, the Panstoria Store, and the Panstoria Print Shop are closing on Jan. 31.
Storybook Creator and Memory Manager were products that came from the former Creative Memories. When that company went bankrupt, Panstoria picked up the slack and offered compatible Artisan and Historian programs. But now Panstoria is going away, too, and those old Creative Memories programs will no longer be supported and cannot be updated or reinstalled on a new machine.
However, a new company – Forever.com – is picking up where Panstoria left off.
Everything to love about Panstoria – including Artisan, Historian, digital art, and a catalog of print products – are now available at Forever.com.
Forever and Panstoria joined forces in September 2014 because Panstoria’s products fit into Forever’s vision of helping people capture, save, and share their photos and memories for generations.
If you’re still using Creative Memories Storybook Creator or Memory Manager, they will continue to work, but they will no longer be supported and cannot be updated.
Solution? Upgrade to Forever Artisan ($29.95) and/or Forever Historian ($59.95). Still have questions? Forever has a good Q&A here.
