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
MY PROBLEM: I want our company website's Logo to look clean & crisp. I am guessing that use of SVG graphics is the correct solution? (than the usual .JPG/.PNG/.GIF bitmapped graphics)

WHAT I TRIED:  I tried out Adobe Illustrator.  Opened Illustrator, wrote a simple Text string using the default Font (MyriadPro), Saved As an .SVG file, the viewed it with a Browser.
Chrome displayed it perfectly ... Firefox and Safari did not.
After Googling around, I see that not all browsers yet support .SVG Graphics.

Can anyone point me to the correct tools/techniques ? Even the Google Logo on the home page looks perfect, no matter how large you zoom in.
I am running PhotoShop CS6 on MacMini (late2014); OS Mojave 10.14.6.  

In the last week, I am no longer able to save any files.  I get this error message:

Could not save as FILENAME because the file is already in use or was left open by another application.

The files are not open anywhere!
Thanks for helping.
Hi Guys, i am looking to change out the phone number on the pdf attached to 644 557086, i cant find any online editors that can do it in same font
It is not the first time I wanted to do this. My question is going to be about legacy Adobe application. However, I want to know about it for the future with other applications and needs. If anymore reasoning wanted for why I want to do this, please ask. I have an installer package for Adobe CS6. I can boot it up and install the one program I need. I do this by unchecking all the other programs. However, in an 8GB package, I want to repackage it with only the files required for the install. That is, the install of the one program, the only one I want because the installer sets up like 20 programs.  I want to monitor the installation and get a list of all the files accessed during the install. I want to then take the list of used directories and files and create a minimally sized installer. I would like to know of a program that can do this monitoring operation. Perhaps maybe MS Sysinternals? Any help or ideas will be appreciated. Mention anything you like, please. I am on Windows. However, I would love to hear a way to do it on Mac OSX as well. Thanks
I have a couple of hundred GoPro clips where the Media Created date is wrong.
It is set a month too late (is September, should be August) so i want to shift 31 days.
This seems not to be straight forward.
Looking at tool called bulkrename, totalcommander and also Adobe Premiere and  GoPro Quik but none of these can amend this attribute on the file (and not as a bulk job.)

Anyone knows about a full featured file utility that can do such things. Does not have to be free.... just do the job "

/thanks for any suggestions
got a terminal server 2012.
I purchased adobe acrobat pro full version and installed adobe creative cloud to install the acrobat pro.

now in task manager process- creative cloud has many process and takes more cpu. I just want to know, can I un install creative cloud ?? will the adobe acrobat pro will still work after uninstalling creative cloud ??
The e-learning authoring programs and/or combined authoring program/LMS platforms that are available today (at least that I can find) seem to be mostly constraining clients to basically build their products from scratch, mostly using the product's templates, and if one ventures out of their templates to make custom pages they make it extremely cumbersome and limited so one is highly influenced to use their templates (in the end that will put a cap on one's ability to continually engage the learner over the long term by restricting capacity for continual creative evolution).

Well, that is what I am hoping you can help with – again I don’t know that much about it but I know the information in the fillable PDFS has to be converted to a “sharable content object reference model” or the newer versions of the technology in order to be read by most LMS platforms. I know I have seen websites that claim to be able to convert content but haven’t explored that yet, and also I haven’t really explored the option of using an audience response system environment rather than an LMS, but I guess at this point I would love to hear your opinion and/or ideas.
Photoshop.  I have a .psd file that I saved to a USB drive and the last time that I worked on it I hit "save" and powered off my computer before the "save" actually occurred and the rather large labor intensive file is now corrupt and I can't open it.  I have attached it to this question.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  I had to compress it as it was over the 50mb limit.
Hi Expert,

I would like to check is there a way to make an Image/Picture resolution look better other than using photoshop? In Jpeg and Png format.

We are using InDesign CS6 (for reasons), installed via Adobe Creative Cloud, installed on Mac OSX 10.13 and 10.14 Macs. Users are encountering frequent crashes. I believe the crashes are caused by incompatibility between InDesign CS6 and 10.13 / 10.14 . But, I can't yet DEFINITIVELY prove this. I believe a transition from CS6 to CC 2017 or later is needed. Can someone please provide the undeniable proof of this for me, or suggest a fix? All machines have the same fonts, are the same hardware, on the same network, etc.

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 removed several fonts from my system (Win 7 pro) but they still show up in the drop down in Illustrator CS6. I have gone thru control panel/fonts and that didn't work. How do I get the fonts that are no longer on my system off the list please?
Hello Everybody,
Please see attached Adobe Illustrator file (CC 2019)

I have an image that includes an alpha channel. I want to bevel only the area that is NOT the alpha channel.

Specifically it is an arm that I want to give a slight bevel around the edges.  I tried 3d effect but that incorporates a grey "box' as a part of the effect.

I might also want to include a drop shadow -- but only around the edges of the arm -- not the square alpha channel.

So I need to isolate the arm from its alpha channel.

Hopefully it's probably a pretty simple solution -and the attached Illustrator file should make things clear....

Here's a link to the illustrator file LINK TO ILLUSTRATOR FILE -- in Dropbox

I have a big project in which I have discovered a few titles with markers in them. I must have placed the markers by accident because I didn't have the timeline selected. Now I can't figure out how to select, remove or even move them. Because of these markers I will probably always get the "some markers could not be legalized" message when I import into Encore. I am using the latest version of Adobe Premier Pro. Please tell me how to remove a marker from a title.
Hello all,

Is there any switch to run Creative Cloud Uninstaller.exe silently

How can i reduce size at the thickness of store path on pen tool?
I need to create a banner in photoshop with Taiwanese characters. I've got the wordings in word document but when I copy paste it in the photoshop CC 2015, the words get jumbled and close and open brackets are coming in wrong place. Under type, language options, I've selected East Asia features. not sure what else needs to be done to copy and paste correctly from word. Font should be MingLiu

I have a pdf with linking (hyperlink) in it, for the same document.
If we rename the document then why it lost its linking?

Please do the needful?
How can I separate  one page that not the same with another page to two pages
I've created two opacity masks with Premier Pro CC2017 and defined their shape with the pen tool.  But they seem to be "grouped" because changing the position in Effect Controls moves them together.  I need to put one mask one place and the other mask another place.  Is there any way to do that?

Can anyone any good at photoshop but a new head (with peroxide in hair, so really just a face replacement) or new peroxide hair do to this face?
I have been working on it for ages.  The angles are odd and she seems to have a really narrow face or something is making it impossible to achieve.  I'd love the sunnies removed too, so maybe yeah a new blond face...
Can anyone help?
Is there a tool/program that I can feed it an audio file and it will create an audio snippet of words mentioned by a voice with searchable metadata?
The goal is to create those types of gags where you have a collection of words mentioned by someone, and then you just create something silly with this.
What is this even called?  Sorry, I'm not an audio guy. Any tools for this? Should I attempt to make one in C#?
I have designed something basic in adobe indesign.
Exported to pdf and now Im trying to print full screen so that my image overlaps the page.

It's an image that goes full width and I've played around with the bleed etc but my understanding is limited on this.
It keeps on printing like this. See attachments.

I wonder if anyone can help.

It's a Canon MG7760.

Thank you.
