Update 2: "traditional" ordering finished, you can still try your luck with the ALDI software.
_______

Update, check here: http://autoshite.com...ring/?p=1146540 if you prefer to order your calendar the "traditional" way. Thanks to Eddie for taking care of this.
_______

All images came in or I was able to “push” them with Photoshop to acceptable quality.
This year’s AS calendar printing and delivery is “self-service”.

To get your 2017 Autoshite calendar just follow the instructions, this will work on PC or Mac only!
  • Download the calendar project file: http://altefranzosen...dar_2017_V2.cpr
    This is a 39MB File, not what you want to download into your smartphone where it would sit with no use anyway…
  • Go to http://www.aldiphotos.co.uk/
  • Download, install and run the “Free ordering software”.
  • Select “Open Project” from the main menu and load the calendar project file into the application.
  • Woohoo! The calendar is in your screen!
  • Click the “Order now” button.
  • Do not select “Automatic image optimization”, the images are already optimized.
  • Voucher Code “CALENDAR17” is good for a £3 rebate giving you this quality shite product for as little as £8.58 including shipping.
Continental shiters can load the project file into the local versions of the Aldi software and order from their countries service.

Is it that dreadful  "Insufficient Tagora content" error you get, or does it say "Error loading AS file: posh computer, can't be a shiter" ?

 

Well, jokes apart, if you could be a bit more specific, i am confident the combined IT knowledge of the shite communitiy will come to your help.

 

Aldi is the only service i found that has the option to im/export a project.  If there is another service around that has that feature, i will be more than happy to provide a file for that.

You cannot open that .cpr file directly.

Download the .cpr file to your drive, Try to right click on the link and select "Save as"..

Then start the ALDI program.  Select “Open Project” from the main menu , find the cpr file on your drive and and load it into the ALDI application.

@six-cylinder: I know what you mean, tried the same a dozen times in vain as I´m bloody stupid for all those IT-things.

 

You need not OPEN this file. Just leave it in your download or on the desktop to copy it in the "open projekt" on the ALDIphoto-Website.

 

Believe me, it works, and  -by the way- what´s shite, ääh life without any challenge :mrgreen: ?

 

Made this procedure on Tuesday, just reached a message from Dr. ALDI: "SHITEman delivers tomorrow..."

I'll see if I can put a how to guide together, too skint to order one until payday though.

 

I'm using windows 7 64 bit...

 

1 - Download teh .cpr file

 

1.JPG

 

2 - Find teh software

 

2.JPG

 

3.JPG

 

300mb! fark

 

4.JPG

 

Some time later (god our work wifi is shite)

 

5.JPG

 

Run

 

6.JPG

 

Next

 

7.JPG

 

install

 

8.JPG

 

Aha. Untick the bottom 2 and click finish

 

9.JPG

 

Meh, whatever, OK

 

10.JPG

 

FFS, Update now

 

11.JPG

 

Woohoo

 

12.JPG

 

Right, open project

 

13.JPG

 

Find the .cpr file

 

14.JPG

 

Whatever, OK

 

15.JPG

 

Aha, hello Emma!

 

16.JPG

 

At the bottom, go to 'Go to Basket'

 

17.JPG

 

Then ORDER NOW at the bottom

 

18.JPG

 

Aha, untick this box, then click contnue

 

19.JPG

 

Then register

 

20.JPG

 

21.JPG

 

Enter moar details

 

22.JPG

 

Then click next. Ooooh you can swap a Maestro for a calendar

 

23.JPG

 

I hit paypal, got presented with this screen

 

24.JPG

 

and upon clicking that button got paypal fired up in the browser, but upon confirming my payment method in the usual paypal way, I get this

 

25.JPG

 

So I hit back, and chose Credit Card, where this screen comes up

 

26.JPG

 

And that's as far as I;m going now as I have no wherewithall to pay for a calendar, so will log back in on payday and do it.

 

Hope this helps though

That was a struggle but got there in there in the end. Thanks for all the work to set this up.

 

But Aldi's software is toss, like a 1996 web page, and 350Mb of download? That is ridiculous.

When I ordered mine I had the paypal error but it doesn't charge the paypal account until you finish the order then it goes through. So far they have only charged me the once.

Thanks for that guide Sam, it's most helpful but i'm really hating this whole ordering process, It's taken me nearly a hour so far and now it's all crashed after registering my details. Surely there must be a better way of doing this or no one else is going to bother ordering any?

It does seem very long winded, although I can see the reasoning behind it, no one needs to gather orders or buy 60 at once then post them out, I remember Billy grumbling about that a few years ago.

 

A .cps file is very specialized though, I've tried a fair few bits of software to open it and can find none. Google has not much info on them either

Tell you all what. How about I take the job on?

Put your name down on an old-fashioned list? I'll go off and work out the price of envelopes and stamps in the meantime.

Get them names down by close of play on the 26th Jan.

I was going to suggest something similar for next year. Loxley Colour in Cumbernauld are a proper print house and you can do stuff using their software (like ALDI but much more better) but I'm sure can also walk in to the showroom with a flash drive for stuff to print. I dare say if we asked them they could take the list of names and deal with the shipping. They also do multiple types of calendars which might appeal to some folk. Here's their price list.

Thank you Eddie! I was just having a play on Vistaprint, I made a calendar up and but comes up as £12.74 with delivery which is too expensive, It does get cheaper if you bulk order though.
