I have an s3 url which is of the image in jpg format. I have the following code :
        BufferedImage image = URL(url));
I need to calculate the sizeof this image.
How do i do that.
I tried the following :
 public static Integer getSize(BufferedImage bufferedImage) throws IOException {
    ByteArrayOutputStream byteArrayOutputStream = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
    ImageIO.write(bufferedImage, "jpg", byteArrayOutputStream);
    return byteArrayOutputStream.size();

Open in new window

It gave 18183 bytes for an image of 14Kb which is wrong.

Mainly i need to detect if the size of the image is more than 1 MB.

Please suggest any ways to do it in java or any alternatives to achieve this ?

How do I copy (move is OK) single photo from iPhone [iOS 12.1.4] to Mac OS Mojave [Mac OS 10.14.3] with minimum effort. No 'Continuity Camera', No Air Play, No iTunes.

Click 'n Drag would be ideal, but likely not possible :-) - I do this infrequently and would like simple method to get 1 photo from iPhone to Mac OS. Copy to Desktop/Folder OK - just want simple method. iPhone is connected to Mac with Lightning/USB cable. Seems Apple must have solved this...

I have spent too much time with no photo copy/move - Help!!

I have a php script to upload photos to the server and the link to the database. I want to adjust this. What I want is that this form can be used to take a photo with a mobile phone and then upload it to the server. It is possible to get the name in the database, but not to upload the photo to the server. Does anyone have an idea how I can do this in the script?
oracle forms- alert window

I have created an alert . Code is here below

But the glitch is this alert window has a x that users can click to close. So in my code I added ELSE to make the alert pop up again if button 1 or button 2 not chosen. But this alert only comes 2 times and third time i click on x, the message on the third jpeg shows. How to avoid closing alert window? Help appreciated.

 answer := show_alert('NO_LINES_WARN');
         IF answer=ALERT_BUTTON1 then
		            raise form_trigger_failure;
         ELSIF answer = ALERT_BUTTON2 THEN  
                             code to delete invoice(works fine)
                             answer := show_alert('NO_LINES_WARN');  	
       END IF;

An Access mdb file has a Table containing (among others) the following field:

PixFullPath which contains the path to a .jpg file:   G:\....\abc.jpg

I have a Form and a corresponding Report both based on the above referenced table which must display the picture abc.jpg using an Image Control called PIC thus:

me.PIC.picture = me.PixFullPath


ComputerA (Win10Pro, Access2016) displays abc.jpg on BOTH FORM and REPORT

ComputerB (Win10Pro, Access2016)  displays abc.jpg  only on the FORM

On ComputerB running the Report returns “You entered an expression that has no Value.  2427”

QUESTION: Any ideas  why doesn’t the IDENTICAL REPORT under IDENTICAL CONDITIONS , not run on ComputerB? and any suggestions what to do about this?
How to organize iOS/OSX photos from iCloud, 2 Macs and several iDevices (iPhones, iPods, iPad) so that all photos are always available on all devices - without any organization (grouping by date, type, etc) except chronological order by date entered, if possible. Future images are to  be added to iCloud current date with no grouping. No organization by Google (etc.) to be allowed. Just as in earlier days, when photo prints added to Album in order received.
Dear Experts,

I work with Coldfusion and from an input type file, i uploaded an image show in the current page. i would like that a resizable rectangle appear when this image upload and be able to crop the image by clicking on a button attached to it when the resizable rectangle appears but still in the current page, without load it by a submit form.
does anyone have some suggestions to do it with Coldfusion and may be Javascript ?

I have a TIFF image file and I need to convert it to a .eps file.  Anyone know how to do this FREE?
I have this picture of a cute, cuddly koala and I'm trying to use Photoshop to alter it to make it look ferocious or sinister. One of the things I want to do is give it large fangs (like that of a sabre-tooth tiger). Is this possible?
     I tried to research doing this myself but all I see are tutorials on how to turn existing teeth (on an image) into fangs. This koala image has his mouth closed, so you can't see its teeth, which means I'd have to make the fangs from scratch (something which I specified in my search phrase but which still led me nowhere).
    I've attached the image if anyone wants to play around with it. But I wouldn't mind someone just TELLING me how to do it.
I need a basic simple movie maker to be used with Windows 10. The purpose will be to supply the program with 10 to 20 photos that I wish to display for (xx) seconds then fade out and in to the next photo. I plan to uplink the "movie" to YouTube. Can anyone recommend a free or very inexpensive piece of software that will do the job for me? I am reluctant to utilize the available substitutes for the program that Windows 10 eliminated due to warnings from Microsoft that they are full of viruses and bugs. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
This is the original image

This image is in the media section of Wordpress and I went in and edited the picture in the form of downsizing and cropping.

Here it is after the editing

Yet when I go back into the media section or if I use the image on a webpage it shows up like the original.

I have deleted browser cache, I closed the admin section and re-logged in.  I reloaded the image into the page by deleting the old copy and then selecting the new image but it still shows the unedited version.

I am on Wordpress 5.03.

Please tell me how I can get the edited image on my webpage.  You can see the web page at just scroll down to see the image in question.

There's someone at work with a laptop that has Windows 10 Enterprise. He cannot open .jpeg files. He gets some error message that says "The app didn't start."
     I went to his Control Panel \ Default Programs. His .jpeg files are defaulted to open with Microsoft Photo.
     The following fixes I tried did not fix the problem:
          -Opening a command prompt as administrator and...
          .....typing:   dism /online /cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
          .....typing:   dism /online /cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
          -Opening a command prompt and typing:   SFC /scannow
          -Then restarting.
          -Going to his "Apps and Features," choosing "Microsoft Photos," then "Advanced Options" and then...
          .....clicking "Repair."
          .....clicking "Reset."
Someone emailed a bunch of photos (as attachments) to my mon's iPhone. She needs to put these photos on her PC. Any idea how this can be done?
For some reason my mom's phone does not get Internet, so I'm unable to download any apps that might get this job done.
My OS is win 7 64 bit and I use facebook.  I installed the "downalbum" to download the photos of a User.  How do I setup for the program to the path I specify.  OR what is the default path?  My laptop a dell e6500 has an ext WB MyPassport 1 TB HD, which shows as F:\.  thank u and regards
When laser cutting, if I want to take an image and engrave the details and then cut out the outline what is the easiest way to accomplish this.
To my understanding, I can use Corel Draw to convert to bitmap then delete all detail to leave only outline to make two different files.  
However, when I create my bitmap the edit bitmap feature disappears.

Any insight to an easy method for taking something like a picture of a line drawn tree, engraving detail, then cutting out the outline would be very helpful.
iOS 12.1.2. I'm trying to save an image that's in a message to my camera roll. When I tap and hold on the photo I don't get a save option--just "copy" and "more..." How do I save this photo to my camera roll--or, alternatively, paste it into same?

I've tried tapping on "copy"; when I go to my camera roll I'm "told" that the photo group has been "updated just now," but i can't find the picture in the collection.

How to test my video camera on Skype for Business??

My video failed on an interview last week using Skype for Business, where I had just installed Skype for Business Desktop.

I have another interview Monday and need to test it and be able to fix it.

How can I find if it's working??

I do not want to clic the link for the gut I will meet on Monday morning until Monday morning.

My OS is win 7 64 bit and I have a facebook account.   Usually I receive photos which I download and save to my hd to view later.  AS sometimes the photos are many, is there any software that could download all the photos?
I've got a number of images (jpg) taken with a mobile phone camera.
When I look at the thumbnail picture (windows explorer) everything looks fine.
However when I open the picture in an image editor/viewer I find things like the image is rotated 90 or 180 degrees OR WORSE, the image is truncated.  By that I mean one might have a strip of grey covering half the image.
How can I 'repair' the jpg so the picture displays correctly ?
It still seems to be exceptionally challenging to

1. Get the images on my phone to sync correctly with Google Photos.
2. Place them in the correct online Albums.
3. Be able to retrieve them from the albums they are in.

The biggest challenge seems to be number three (3). When I go to add a photo that I know is in an album at, I can't even see the album to select from.

Any assistance that you can provide in shedding some light on these issues is greatly appreciated.

Please advise what format I should export to?  thank u
