I have a collection of about 10,000 photos taken in my travels to various countries and they have been set up to be randomly shown as my desktop picture. My problem is that I often don't remember where the photo in use was taken and I'm hoping to find a way or an app that would display that location in a corner of the wallpaper.  The 'Photos' app knows where they were taken so it should be possible. I'm looking for a solution for my desktop, can anyone help me out?

What steps do you recommend for UPLOADING Employee Photos to my Window Server 2016, Active Directory ?

Details
 ** # of employees = 100
 ** photos = under 100kb in size, named firstname_lastname.jpg
 ** AD Account Name = firstname lastname
 ** security = IT (me) will do upload
 ** software = powershell/etc is fine, or something like https://www.codetwo.com/freeware/active-directory-photos

My OS is win 7 64 bit, and it is a Dell 3600 lattiitude.  
I downloaded a few jpeg files from facebook, etc.    In its original format, the file size is big.  
I am trying to create a slide show with a sound track and since the number of files number more than 50.
the software  I am using is Pinnacle /studio 21 Plus (still in the learning curve), thus the need to reduce the size of each file to its mininum size losing the min of the qualities of the graphics only.
What software can do this or how to save the files in a smalller size jpeg (or other formats that can be inserted into Pinnacle studio 21.  thank u n regards

Windows 10 photos are gone after I attempted to move the folder where the photos are located from c:\Users\<username>\Photos to a USB drive 256GB module   E:\Photos. When I did this, all of the photos on the c: drive disappeared even though it said it was going to move them.

I have a somewhat urgent need. There are about 20 people and more to come that need to see 20 photos that I own. I need the name of any site that will allow me to uplink the photos and give them the url to the particular "album" or group of photos that they need to see. They should not be able to see any other photos on this proposed site. ONLY the ones that I gave in the url. OR, If I can give them a password good only for the album in question. I do not mind paying for this service and the amount of photos  residing on this site would be under 5 gigs probably. The maximum amount of photos at any one time that would be available to a group would be under 1 gig. Any suggestions. I do have Photobucket installed but have npt had the chance to utilize the site. I don't even know if Photobucket offers this service. At the present time I need to uplink 20 photos asap.

Hi I have an IPhone6 with a broken screen, I have the code and it seems to come on, I just need to get photos off of it.  

Question, how do I do that, hopefully through a PC not Mac.

Thanks all.

I just purchased a program named Quickview Plus. I want it to be the default program to open anytime I click on a jpg file. I went to Default Apps and clicked on Photo Viewer. It then brings up several apps and "Look for an app in the Play Store." Nowhere do I see the expected "browse to find a file". How do I specify that I want Quickview Plus to be the default program to open jpg files by default?

The track pad on my very old MacBook Pro is jammed. I don't use the laptop but there are photos and files on it that I want. Because of lack of updates, they are not backed up in the cloud. I do not care to pay to have the trackpad fixed, so is the best way to retrieve those photos and files to pay a repair shop to transfer them to an external hard drive?

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.

Xpdf - PDFtoPS - Command Line Utility to Convert a PDF File to PS (PostScript)
In this tenth video of my Xpdf series, I discuss and demonstrate the PDFtoPS utility, which converts a PDF file to PostScript (PS). Also, it provides an option allowing creation of an Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) file. It performs its functions via a command line interface, making it suitable for use in programs, scripts, batch files — any place where a command line call can be made.

1. Download the software


You may have already downloaded the Xpdf tools while watching one of my earlier videos in the series, but there has since been an upgrade from Version 3 to Version 4 and there is a new download site:

https://www.xpdfreader.com/download.html

Visit that site and download the pre-compiled Windows binary ZIP archive, then unzip it.

Step1

2. Locate the documentation folder for the Xpdf utilities


Go to the folder where you unzipped the downloaded ZIP file and find the doc folder.

Step2

3. Read the documentation for the PDFtoPS tool


Go into the doc folder and find the plain text file called pdftops.txt.

Open it with any text editor, such as Notepad, and read it. This is the documentation for the PDFtoPS tool.

Step3

4. Set up a test folder


Create a test folder.

Copy pdftops.exe from the unzipped bin32 folder into your test folder.

Copy a sample PDF file into your test folder.

Step4

5. Set up a command prompt for testing


Open a command prompt window.

Navigate to your test folder.

Issue a DIR command in the command prompt to be sure that only two files are in it - the PDFtoPS executable and the sample PDF file.

Step5

6. Run the PDFtoPS utility to create the PostScript file


Issue the following command in the command prompt:

pdftops TestFileName.pdf

Xpdf - PDFtoPPM - Command Line Utility to Convert a PDF File to PPM, PGM, PBM
In this ninth video of my Xpdf series, I discuss and demonstrate the PDFtoPPM tool, which converts a PDF file to color portable pixmap (PPM) format, grayscale portable graymap (PGM) format, or monochrome (black & white) portable bitmap (PBM) format. It creates a separate image file for each page of the PDF file. It does this via a command line interface, making it suitable for use in programs, scripts, batch files — any place where a command line call can be made.

Xpdf - PDFtoHTML - Command Line Utility to Convert a PDF File to HTML
In this eighth video of my Xpdf series, I discuss and demonstrate the PDFtoHTML utility, which, exactly as its name says, converts a PDF file to HTML. It does this via a command line interface, making it suitable for use in programs, scripts, batch files — any place where a command line call can be made.

xpdfrc - Configuration File for All Xpdf Utilities
This is the eleventh — and final — video of my Experts Exchange Micro Tutorials on the Xpdf utilities. The first video is an overview of the command line tools. The next nine videos are tutorials on all them:

PDFimages - Extract Images from PDF Files
PDFtoText - Convert PDF Files to Plain Text Files
PDFinfo - Retrieve Page Count and Other Information from PDF Files
PDFdetach - Detach Attachments from PDF Files
PDFtoPNG - Convert a Multi-page PDF File into Separate PNG Files
PDFfonts - List Fonts Used in a PDF File
PDFtoHTML - Convert a PDF File to HTML
PDFtoPPM - Convert a PDF File to PPM, PGM, PBM
PDFtoPS - Convert a PDF File to PS (PostScript)

This last video in the series discusses xpdfrc, which is the single configuration file that Xpdf uses for all nine utilities. It provides an enormous number of options, allowing extensive control of the tools, such as character mapping, font configuration, PostScript control, rasterizer settings, text control, and much more.

1. Download the software and fonts


You may have already downloaded the Xpdf tools while watching one of my earlier videos in the series, but there has since been an upgrade from Version 3 to Version 4 and there is a new download site:

https://www.xpdfreader.com/download.html

Visit that site and download the pre-compiled Windows binary ZIP archive, then unzip it.

Download the Symbol and Zapf Dingbats fonts from the same page.

I am running Windows 10 on my Lenovo laptop.  I have several different file management software programs, but none of them enable me to look through the picture files for sorting/selecting by seeing larger images of the photos than that permitted by the Windows Explorer "Extra Large Icons" view.  It isn't practical to have to open all the photos in one of my image programs (which, of course, would enable me to see them full screen), since I'm sorting through thousands.  Is there a file management program that can provide really large (or, even better, scalable) icons?  I thought that the now-defunct PowerDesk software allowed this.

Thanks (and Merry Christmas),

Hello

A coloured image has 3 values (R,G,B) so how the three values are stored in the matrix?

1-My understanding is that in every cell of the matrix, there is one value so I am wondering how Jpeg for example store the three values?
2-If I have an image and I would like to see the whole matrix (all the colour values) is there a program that convert the image to a text file hat has all the colour values of the image?

Thank you

Photos sent from iPhone are arriving in small size resolution.
AND I used to be able to choose which size it would be sent in.

Example:  I take a photo, I send it and right before I press send, my iPhone asks me if I want to keep it in the original size (usually more than 1 meg) or make it smaller.
Now, I don't get asked what size of image I want to send, it merely gets sent in the small crap size/resolution.
I'm running IOS 12.1

How can I configure (or reconfigure) my iPhone so that I can control the size of the images  I send. Most of the time I want the original size.

There are more than one type of solid state drives available. I wish to be able to describe and identify the drives that I am involved with using the correct terminology I have included photos of the drives. Could someone please give me the full correct description of each of these shown three types? If they are identified by more than one name please give me both names so that no matter what company I happen to be speaking to they will know what I am speaking of.Photos of solid state drives #1Photos of solid state drive #2

Have a jpg image that needs to be:
  • Opened and displayed
  • Resizeable using its lower-right corner
  • Draggable around the screen
  • Closeable
When first opened, it needs to be resized to fit inside whichever parent element is holding it ... a <div> maybe?
There should be no scrollbars.  Whatever size the parent is dragged to then that is the size of the jpg (but it remains the same ratio).
I thought this would be simple, but nothing I tried so far has worked.  Tried <img>.  Tried background-image.  I must be missing something.
Tools we use here are HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, and JavaScript.
Chrome is the web browser used internally.
