Once you've become a subscriber to the SJMP website, you'll find everything in our catalog at your fingertips.
To download a PDF file (printed music etc), simply click on the COLORED PDF icon.
Your browser (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc.) will automatically download this file and save it to wherever you've set up your browser to save downloaded files. You can always change this location in the PREFERENCES setiings of your browser. For instance, you might want to set up a folder titled "SJMP" on your desktop and save everything in one place!
If you click on the MP3 icon (recorded music), this file (depending on your browser and your plug-ins) will probably simply play.
To download the MP3 is just as easy, but differs across the browsers. Just <right-click> or <control-click> the COLORED MP3 icon, and then choose a "save" option.
These options differ among the browsers, but you might see one of these choices...
You get the picture. Choose this option and you can then save the MP3 to the same location on your hard drive as your PDFs. Import the MP3 into whatever music program you use (iTunes, RealPlayer, etc.) and make a CD for yourself or your choir. HINT: You might want to make a new PLAYLIST that includes just your SJMP anthems to make them easier to access and put on a CD.
EXTRAS (ZIP) files (only visible for pieces that have congregational or other extraneous files) work the same way that PDF's do. Simply click on the icon. The file will download in a ZIP format. Double-clicking the downloaded file will "un-zip" it and you'll see a folder containing graphic files (EPS or TIF) or orchestral parts, etc.
EPS - Encapsulated Postscript Files are files that have the fonts embedded in them. They are great for putting into bulletins when congregational parts are called for. Alternatively, there may be TIF files (graphic files) for those of you who are more familiar with the TIF format.
HINT: If you try to OPEN an EPS file, it will not work unless you have a program that will convert it and I suspect you do not. However, these will work by PLACING or IMPORTING them into a document (bulletin, leaflet, etc.) TIF files will probably open, because most computers have some sort of program that will open a graphic. EPS is better quality, but TIF files work fine as well.
