Hi there!

How can I compress a bitmap without losing quality. I have a 1920 x 1080 background wallpaper with text that is currently 5-Mb, Ideally I would like it between 2-3Mb at 1920 x 1080.
This must be a .bmp file format. I am pretty good with Photoshop but could not find a way to compress the bitmap without losing quality.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Many Thanks!

User can't view movies taken on iPhone and previously imported to Lightroom Classic Mac 6.3.1
They get a black screen, and there is no audio or video.

If they try and import a MOV or a MP4 into Lightroom, they get error message:
An unknown error has occurred while reading the video file.  Connection to Dynamic Link server failed (1)

They used to be able to view these same type of video files in previous versions of Lightroom Classic Mac.

They also have a lot of .AVI files - can these be viewed in Lightroom or do they need to be converted first?

Any known cause or solutions?  Thanks
Hi, We are non-profit org, I was wondering if anyone would know where we can get Adobe InDESIGN at at reduction price for a charity org.

iPhone 11 does not take High Resolution videos?

I have an iPhone 11 and take a video of myself with the back side of the phone, with 3+ cameras on it.

Record Rate: 4K at 60 fps
Record Slo-mo: 1080p at 240 fps
Camera Capture: High Efficiency

I take the video, then use Adobe Premiere to Export Frame.

The PNG I create looks blurry.

What am I doing wrong?

View video frame-by-frame

I do not have an active Adobe Premier license

What tools enable me to step through a video at a frame level? I have a video of myself and want to find a single picture to use in a brochure. So, I know Adobe Premier does this. What free tools also can do this?

How can I determine which version of Photoshop/Illustrator/Premiere Pro I have.
There are books that say "This is for Photoshop 2019"  And yet, Adobe shows version numbers when I start up the program!
What year do the version numbers correspond to?
Please provide me with a link to a site.
Experts: May I ask if this question is deemed "Not important enough" to receive assistance? Or, have I posted it in the incorrect area? Just wondering...Cameron

I am using CorelDraw 2019. EVERY time I open it the program tells me that it had found two "Auto Backup" files and wanted to know if I wanted to open them. When I open them I can see that they are junk files to me and I take note of the  name of the drawing ( a CDR file ) and close Corel. I went to the folder that I store all CDR files and erased both of the files, yet they both keep coming back. Corel must be storing them some other place that I do not know about. How can I locate the files and delete them?
Attached is a screenshot of a PNG file type.  In this file there is a text in the box.  Is Adobe Photoshop Elements 8.0 a suitable program to edit this text?
If yes, how to edit text with this program?  I've never used this program before.
Need a Mac alternative to MSPaint?

I do not want to learn Gimp. I can not tolerate the incredible bugs in Paintbrush. It lets me design exactly what I need. Then, it fails to save it!

Screwed up!

What free options?

I am slowly learning Photoshop, but it is a slow and steep learning curve.

I need fast, and may just use MSPaint, But that has just one layer of Undo.

Crazy difficult finding good software

Moving an image in Adobe PhotoShop?

I have four images, each on its own layer. So, it should be easy to move or resize any of those images?


I do not know the secret trick to do this.

Can someone help?

Building a workstation for our creative team.

This is something I've done a million times, yet today it seems to be an issue. Trying to import ~4000 still pngs for a movie sequence (generated from Animate CC), I import to AE as footage and as a png sequence in the Import dialog box. AE goes through the motions (it takes even my relatively new MacBook Pro a few moments to select all the files, and to then attempt to import them), but in the end keeps throwing up an error that some file (a file it shouldn't need, and not a numbered file in the sequence like all the pngs I generated and then selected).

Here's the error dialog:


I've restarted all apps and the machine, regenerated the pngs from the source, tried importing to a fresh project in AE, and made sure all Adobe CC apps are fully updated. All with the same result, that error dialog.

Can anyone help me navigate around this weirdness?
Hi Graphic Experts,
could you please suggest some open source and license tool to create animated GIF please. or any file that can
1. Combine 10 images and create an animation effect
2. Should be able to add interval. So I can set more time after last frame/image.

I was thinking of creating this and upload it to a webpage which can animate

thanks in advance
How to remove the white areas around the wooden cross which is an image. The whole thing is an image

WOW! Photoshop CC REALLY, REALLY, SUCKS!  They moved everything around, and I can even find the layers window.  See attached.  The main window is all black.  I'm used to seeing the transparent background as a white and grey checkboard.  They don't even have that anymore.  How do I get the layers to show so that I can work with them, and how do I get the checkerboard transparent background?photoshop menu
The user needs to convert a short flash video (.FLV) to a video loop of some sort that can appear on the home page of a website.  (I assume that a looping GIF might be the way to go)

How do I do this conversion?   I have tried a few websites that offer this service, but they either have trouble recognizing the .FLV file or only return an empty video.

I have the Adobe Creative Suite, but not all the apps are installed.

I use Photoshop to open a png file and want to add some circle on the image file.

When I draw a circle and select copy and paste, another image is created but they are moving together as a unit. How to separate it ?

How to select a circle ? I click on the circle but it can't select ?

Hello. I am using Illustrator CS3 on a Windows 10 system. I created an Illustrator file for a window decal a year or so ago, but we weren't ready yet to actually use the decal. I opened the Illustrator file today and got the dreaded "missing font" message. The font in question is Rochester-Regular, an OTF file. I looked in my system font file and only Adobe fonts were listed. (What happened to all my other files?!?! Did they disappear in a Windows upgrade?)

I went out on the internet, found the font file, and downloaded and installed it in the Windows font file and it shows up in the directory there.

Still does not show up in Illustrator. I tried using Find File in Illustrator to search the System fonts and the font was not found. I downloaded the font from a different website with the same result. I rebooted, still no luck.

In my research on the internet, one solution was to install the file in the directory Windows\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Fonts. I did not have this subfolder, so I created it and copies the font into the new folder. This didn't work either.

If I open the file in Photoshop and Adobe Bridge, it displays correctly. The problem is that I need to send the AI file to a service provider for tweaking and printing.

How can I get this font to display in Illustrator?

How can I add a test to the attached power point and when the person finishes taking the test and pass with a 65, they will receive an certificate and I will receive an email that they completed the annual security awareness review.  I am not sure if there is freeware that you can suggest or a tutorial I can follow.  Please share any ideas or suggestions.  Thanks.
I have a user using an iMac, I'm not sure of the OS right off, but I think he's good about keeping his system up to date.  

Adobe Premiere keeps crashing on his machine.  Naturally, I want to look at the application logs to see what is happening.  I have an administrator permissioned account credentials, so I'm logging in there. I look in the logs and I don't see anything there that indicates a crash.  In fact, it doesn't look like there's much of anything in this machine's logs at all.  This makes me think that perhaps logs are user specific and that I need to be logged in as him to find what I'm looking for.

Am I just looking in the wrong place for the logs that I'm looking for (I don't understand OS X logging just yet), or is my problem more likely or encouraged by the fact  that I need to be logged in as that specific user to get to the logs I need?
I have an Adobe InDesign manuscript running about 300+ pages and will be needing to have copyeditors begin reviewing in early March. I see I could use Adobe InCopy for each of my reviewers, but that would cost a license for each one. Do you know a way to share a doc (PDF or InDesign) where the user doesn't have to make a software purchase to edit/proofread (and add highlights or diacritical marks) in the web browser?
I use Adobe Photoshop version 12. This is an older outright purchase version. I have created and use "Actions". They are very simple time saving actions such as F2 takes me immediately to brightness & contrast adjustment and F5 takes me to saturation and hue. For some reason when I hit any of my Function keys that are action keys I get the error shown in my attached file. I obviously set something in error that should be toggled in the other direction. Can anyone give me suggestions as to what setting to change so that this error does not appear? NOTE: Knowledge wise as far as proficiency goes regarding Photoshop on a 1-10 scale, I am a 1.5. I only use it for the most basic of chores. I am purposely using this older version because I do not agree with Adobe's policy to only RENT the software on a yearly basis. It is crazy expensive for someone that is a casual user.  IMHOPhotoshop error
I'd like to use Photoshop to be able to construct Floor Plans for home building.

In my initial research I noticed the Measurement Scale option that is an inches to pixels conversion. This seems to work well, but isn't quite accomplishing what I want:

I'd like to set this up for Inches to Feet, such that 1/4" is equal to 1' for the sake of accuracy. So, a quarter-inch on the screen (presumably Greyscale at 300dpi) is equal to a foot in real life.

I appreciate your assistance as it turns out that yes, I do indeed need to do math for this.

I have an image file. I know to be 15.25 x 8.75" with a resolution of 300. But Photoshop tells me it is 45 x 50" with a resolution of seventy-two. I get the same numbers if I go to Windows Explorer and get the properties.
I have a PDF newsletter that needs to go out in an email. The problem is I don’t want to simply attach the PDF to the email but rather have it in HTML in the email. How do I do this? Is there something that can do this easily?
