They offer 3 versions of their chart that I can find: 2 as swatches, and one as a TIFF image. ( http://blog.spoonflower.com/2008/11/n... )

Load the swatches from the swatches palette, or load the TIFF as an image.

thank you so much but I do that and get to the screen that says load and it won't load the spoonflower swatches --it does nothing. I tried both swatch formats and same result.

Are you loading them from the swatches palette (Load or Replace)?

I was able to download and load both the ACO and ASE files just now.
They work just fine in Photoshop CS2 through CS6 (sorry, don't have older versions installed to test).

thank you -- I have an older version just CS so I guess that is the problem. Thank you so very much for trying though and since I am planning to get a Mac in June, I will wait until then to upgrade and hope they allow me to do it from my PC version.

If you have CS: it can't load the ASE file (that was added in CS2), but it should still load the ACO file.
