I've been doing a lot of travelling and road tripping with the family and I always find it hard and time consuming to gather all photos from cameras and iphones into one comfortable experience in front of the television. It's usually a mess to import photos from camera, and my wife, me and daughter's iphone...they mess up the dates and mix up photos and videos. Then later on viewing on my television through AppleTV(gen4) is slow and not a good experience.

I'm using Mac and iphone and has a Sony camera and a Sony television and AppleTV (gen4).

I was thinking of a cloud service or piece of software where I can basically dump all photos and videos from all my devices and it will make sure to present it all nicely on my TV so we can all sit comfortable and enjoy our adventures :-)

Hello!

I have a PHP script that should create a valid image file on server side. The following code runs fine:
$filename = $_GET['filename'];

// Only proceed if we got valid input
if ($filename !== null) {
    echo "$filename is not null.";
    $image = @imagecreatetruecolor(10, 10)
                or die('Cannot Initialize new GD image stream');

    if (strpos($image, '/gif') !== false) {
        $image_type = "GIF";
        header('Content-Type: image/gif');
        $successful = imagegif($image, "./$filename");
    } else if (strpos($image, '/jpeg') !== false) {
        $image_type = "JPG";
        header('Content-Type: image/jpeg');
        $successful = imagejpeg($image, "./$filename");
    } else if (strpos($image, '/png') !== false) {
        $image_type = "PNG";
        header('Content-Type: image/png');
        $successful = imagepng($image, "./$filename");
    }

    if ($successful) {
        echo "Image written to '$filename'.";
    } else {
        echo "Could not write $image_type image to '$filename'.";
    }
    imagedestroy($image);
    echo "image destroyed.";
} else {
    echo "$filename is null.";
}

Open in new window


This works fine & an image with the $filename is created. But actually, I do not only receive the file name but the image content as well. So, the real code is

$filename = $_GET['filename'];

$image = $_GET['image'];

// Only proceed if we got valid input
if ($filename !== null) {
    echo "$filename is not null.";
    $image = base64_decode($image);
    $slash1 = strpos($image, '/');

    $image_type = substr($image, $slash1, strpos($image, ';') - $slash1);

    if (file_exists($filename)) unlink($filename);

    header('Content-Type: image/' . $image_type);

    switch ($image_type) {
        case "gif":
            $successful = imagegif($image, "./$filename");
            break;
        case "jpeg":
        case "jpg":
            $successful = imagejpeg($image, "./$filename");
            break;
         case "png":
            $successful = imagepng($image, "./$filename");
            break;
    }
    if ($successful) {
        echo "Image written to '$filename'.";
    } else {
        echo "Could not write $image_type image to '$filename'.";
    }
    imagedestroy($image);
    echo "image destroyed.";
} else {
    echo "$filename is null.";
}

Open in new window


But still, I get the reply Could not write image to 't.jpg'. Can you see my error(s)?

I am weary of dealing with web host companies that have creative pricing plans that drive me up a wall. I  would like to know the name of a company that charges ONE rate from the word GO all the way through at least 5 more years of renewals. I am a VERY low user of data. I simply want a reliable host with 24/7 technical help available for photos and emails. Can anyone recommend one or two? I am with one now that is demanding more than DOUBLE what I paid for the first few years! It isn't going to happen.

Hello Experts,

I am using Adobe Photoshop CS5 for MacOs 10.6.8.

When I click Layer --> New Fill Layer -->Solid Color and fill my paths with a color, it fills the outside of my paths, and not the inside.

How do I correct this?

Since it is filling the outside of my paths and not the inside, when I convert the next path to a shape, the layer underneath the newly created shape is no longer visible. I am trying to create a simple vector image of a food truck for my friend.

Attached is my .psd file.

I have an https share link from google photos which works perfectly. However, I do need this link to launch from within an iframe tag.  I cannot get the page with the iframe to launch the google photos share link.  I wonder if it is possible to do this, and if so - what am I missing.

Share link is https://photos.app.goo.gl/bb4C8luWTmlcQbXu1   This works from browser.

I am attaching the page which has this link embedded within an iframe.  This does not work.

<iframe src="https://photos.app.goo.gl/bb4C8luWTmlcQbXu1"

Coding: VB.net 2013 / Windows 7 64-bit
Camera: Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 (Full HD 1080p video calling (up to 1920 x 1080 pixels))

I have an app that I want to simply trigger the camera to take a still, high quality photo and store the image with a file name I will provide automatically.   I would also like to display an image on the screen so they know the product being photographed is lined up under the camera.

All the code I find online seems to be a variation of this code:  

While this code does take a picture, the quality is worse than a cheap kids camera.    So for some reason it does not use the full capability of the camera to take a quality picture.  I want to be able to zoom in on the picture to make out the writing.

Is there some way in the code I can force the camera to take a higher quality picture?

If not, is there some low cost VB.net add-in that could be used to acheive this?

Is there a low cost non-webcam digital camera that can be mounted and can connect via UBS and be controlled by vb.net to take HQ photos?

I have attached the picture I took.   In the middle of the picture there is a tan cut out of a magazine article.  When I zoom in on the photo it is all pixelated and you cannot make out any words.

Thanks

Google Photo's "Backup & Sync" tool is making my internet connection unusable when I'm uploading photos from my desktop.  I have another desktop & laptop, all on the same WiFi.

I do see I can limit upload and download speed.

QUESTION:

If the desktop is the only device requesting bandwidth, I presume that would get all of the bandwidth.

However, when I start using my laptop, shouldn't it share the connection and play nice?

My Comcast is normally 30 Mbps down and 5 Mbps up when I'm not uploading.

When uploading without specifying a limit, it can drop to under 1 download and 1 upload.

I just specified a limit of 400 KB/sec and download limit to 1800 KB/sec to see if that helps.

Thx
Mike

I am testing out using a image from a IP camera and then comparing it with the same image taken later. I would like to be able to set a threshold of notifying me if the images don't match to a certain percentage. I am using Windows and looking for some open source command line images.

Anybody have any ideas?

Our website is in JPEG format.  My understanding is that Google wants the contents of the website to be in HTML.
How could we change the contents of the website to be HTML. Our website has about 2000 pages.

Thanks for your help.

I have VB .NET code that is inserting jpg images into a Word document using the InLineShapes.AddPicture.  My problem is that my image quality gets degraded when doing this.  I have checked the "Do not compress images in file" under Word Advanced Options for "All New Documents".  With this checked, I can manually insert the jpgs and the image quality stays high, but this setting seems to be ignored when inserting using the AddPicture.  Is there a way to fix this issue?

Thanks

in photoshop CC 2017, I was a fan of sometimes using the filter gallery to create some photos for viewing. I liked the pencil sketch filter but as of late is giving me a peach background. I can't find anywhere where it says how to change the background let alone how to un-peach it. how can this be changed?

I have a program which prints photos on licences. The memebers have to upload their photos. While searching I understood that ms access 2010 doesn't handle .jpeg-files, only .jpg-files. And indeed I have this problem. I have to convert .jpeg to .jpg.

Do I need to convert the .jpeg with vba-code tot .jpg. Or is it only needed to replace .jpeg by .jpg in the file name?

Thansk for your reply.

Kind Regards
Jean

Hi, I have a need to take a lot of images and video for a certain project I'm going to be working on. I'm going to use my iPhone 6s and a Smooth Q gamble rig.

My question is - is there a simple and quick way to download my media to a hard drive in the field without using a laptop and iTunes?

Is there a stand alone hard drive (or small device) that I can use out in the field while I'm taking my images and video?

Thank you,
Fulano

In the past I've always been able to copy files and the date stamp would be retained to when I created it.  Now all of a sudden every file copied has todays date.  I don't get it.  Why would i want today's date of my videos or photos.

Any help would be great.

I have Windows 10 and I don't want to install additional software, just want to use Windows commands.

Thank you.

HI,
I have clicked pictures of some book with my camera. Now i want to join them and make a pdf out of it.
In android there is an app call camscanner which does the job. But i need something on desktop...most likely if i could upload and get the returned pdf back.
I tried one website. All it did was joined the jpgs into one pdf. Thats not what i want.
There are some issues with it :
1) size is too big
2) clarity is not good.

camscanner automatically makes it look like a scanned document.
Please help finding out a good tool for this.

Thanks

Hi,

i have good quality in my camera that I want to store in a web based storage. Google Photos is good,, considering its  free service until you hit a storage limit.

1) What is the storage limit in google pics?

2) Secondly, while uploading my pics there if I want my pic resolution to be preserved and there should be no drop in quality in the pics - does Google reduces the quality or resolution while storing those pics? Does the original quality is maintained while uploaded?

Thank you
