I should have the option:

"Under Picture Tools, on the Format tab, in the Adjust group, click Compress Pictures."

Is this not supported on Word 2017 Mac?

I need to compress the images.

I have an 85 page Word Document with 85 images, and when I convert it to PDF the file size becomes 1.33 GB!

That is totally unacceptable.

I am flummoxed that the file could never be so huge. These image are in the size range of 1MB to 10 MB.

Are there different file formats I could use that convert better?

How do I reduce the resolution to those images? I am hoping for a Word feature that lets me reduce resolution inside Word versus me needing to handle each image outside of Word, which will take the whole day.

Thanks.

I often need to publish one - thirty jpg photos. I do have a website exclusively for this purpose. I am definitely not doing things the easy way.  I first must size the photos, then bring them into a program that assembles them into a mini album then publishes them. The program that I currently use is IRFANVIEW.  I am 99% sure that there is a free or next to free site that will enable me to perform this process MUCH easier. Can any Expert recommend one or two sites that are relatively troublefree for me? I would appreciate it.

Receiving error when attempting to open media files such as jpg and jpeg files.  Using Kaspersky Total Security so I cannot enable Windows Firewall Service. Tried to research this error message and only found one or two references with suggested solutions. However those solutions have not worked.

I have made dozens of videos with Videowave and then converted them with ConvertXtoDVD4.  I am making one for a reunion and everytime I try to burn it, it has a blue film over the entire production.

I need to adjust image sizes manually for the rime being, since I do not yet know how to maintain aspect ratio on size reduction.

So, I need some measurement tool for the X and for the Y.

Does that exist?

I see that neat feature too Place an image, but when I try and shrink if from the top corner, the aspect ration changes, making the image useless.

How do I adjust the size and force to to remain true?

Thanks

A friend has a website for his family business, all of a sudden all the images are gone. According to him, the images were provided by something called Phanfare.

From what I surmise briefly from Google, Phanfare was acquired by Smugmug.

I am an over 20 year internet developer, I never heard of ether Phanfare or Smugmug.

Any suggestions on how to proceed?

He says he has a backup of all the photos in jpg format, so of course I could restore them the "old fashioned" way if I can get ftp access to the host. The issue is, don't know which image (jpg) goes where.

Maybe I could tell by a view source on the site? It's probably not that simple.

Thanks

EE Pros,

I have a logo that I have created in Powerpoint that I want to embed in the Header of a Doc. I'm preparing.  Currently I'm using SNAGIT to capture the logo and embed it.  Unfortunately, when I convert the Doc. to a PDF file, you can see the pixels (sort of gray) in the background of the lifted logo.  I think this may have to do with rastering.

Can you advise me on how to get a clean PIC from a Powerpoint image I have created?

Thank you in advance.

When opening a .jpg/.tiff or similar file that is attached to an Outlook 2010 message; it opens the file in Windows Photo Viewer with the message "please wait while the printer sends information to windows" which never goes away, the print button is grayed out. This happens for all available printers including network printers, local IP printers, and Adobe PDF.

Saving the file to the Desktop, opening with Windows Photo Viewer, and selecting print works without any issue.

I have tried the following:
Rename %systemroot%\System32\Spool\Printers to Printers.old
Rename %systemroot%\System32\Spool\Drivers\w32x86 to w32x86.old
Restarted Print Spooler service
Disabled DEP and previewers in Outlook
Reinstalled print drivers for network printers and Adobe

I'm looking for new(er) unlocked cell phones for two family members.  We currently have iPhone 4S I bought on eBay.  They’ve served us well but now I’m looking for something bigger and newer, probably used or refurbished.  Our carrier is Consumer Cellular which is AT&T.  We don’t use our phones very much and we use basic features, calling, messaging, photos.  I’m thinking of getting some type of refurbished iPhone 6 (6, 6S, 6+ …).  

I have some questions:
1. Should I look for iPhones, since we already have them, or would another type of phone serve us just as well?  Its basic features would have to be as easy to use as the iPhone.  Are there better deals for Samsungs, Huawei… or other types of phones?  Or should we stick with iPhones since we already have them?
2. Can I trust used/refurbished phones?  Can you suggest the best places to buy them?
3. I’m always willing to spend a bit more money to get a lot more value.  Which model of phone should I look for?  6 versus 6S versus….?
4. Any other considerations?
Thanks,
Alan

Hi,

I'm getting up to speed with using SnagIt for screen captures. I'm trying to add a text box with an arrow pointing to a component of the screenshot.

While I can type text into a whitespace area of the screenshot, it displays w/o a border.  So, I need to figure out how to add the border. If SnagIt could do it automatically, like MS Word does for text boxes, that would be great. In addition, what's the best way to add a red arrow?

Thanks,
Steve

Free Tool: ZipGrep
LVL 8
Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.

I can use Fuzzy Select to find the colored areas I want. How do I then add a dark order to that region?

Right now, it just twinkles to show it is active...so how do I transition to actually use that region?

Thanks

I would like to buy a selfie stick for my iPhone 6 if it let me take pictures in a different perspective, and not of myself.

Sometimes, I want to be a few feet taller.

Can it be used for this?

What is the longest one I could get?

Can it secure my phone safely?

Thanks

I would like the ability to come back that image and update any element which I add today. Does each event go in its own layer?

Or, is there another way to be able to edit, for example, a line? I may want to reduce the line width a month from now...

Thanks.

On the following advertisement, I see an item in the picture that does not appear in the list of items at the bottom of the page...

Any idea what it is?

See attached image...

ALSO, I have a question about the size of the memory card(s). I see this has two at 16GB each. I also see a refurbished camera with a single 64 GB card.

Can you give me some ice how fast a 16GB card would fit with this camera? Let's say, distant shots require me the max resolution and file size per pic.

How many would a 16BG card hold?

Thanks

I see how to use Gimp for Mac to draw a line, but it's to thick. I want 1 pixel.

I tried using the Brush editor with no luck.

What's the trick?

I have Gimp 2.8.22 (Mac)

Thanks
