I recently move a Media Wiki site from one host to another; everything seemed to work.

However, uploading photos on the new host does not work. The process of making a Thumbnail fails. See attached. This happens for every file uploaded to the new host, it did not happen with the old host.

Any ideas?

I moved the site using the detailed instructions from Media Wiki. https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Moving_a_wiki

Hello

I have 3500 + pics/vids on iPhone 6
After almost a week of going through the backup torture that many others have described. (Saying 1 item left, then 3000 left...)
Well yesterday I finally got the "backup comple" cloud with check mark. So I went to free up storage, and only 125 of the 3000+ say they were backed up, obviously clearing no space.

The phone only has 59mb free storage left. I have no access to iCloud (long long story), so I am afraid if I go the uninstall/reinstall route that there may not be enough space for google photos to reinstall.

Any thoughts, suggestions, answers?

Thanks

Hi,

I have a simple need of a gallery plug-in. After looking at some 20 of them I am really frustrated since All are jpg and do not give the options to have a simple gallery like on the old days where each picture had a normal URL.

Its quite simple what I try to do here. Please excuse the url, because this is real old. I did this in 2004
http://malaysiamission.com/photo.html

all these photos with descriptions are still in google, if you search for any names in these galleries they come up in google with description. This is what we try to do with this gallery., but instead there is even hard to find something that allows to have the cation under the picture.

Does anyone have any idea if such a plug-in exists?

I would be very happy if anyone has a tip for me because it seems so simple but everyone offers the fancy ways to display them. This is all fine but in the end I want these pictures in google as pages with the names of the people in the photo. I try to have clean URLs for each photo as well.

Anyone know if something like this?

Best wishes,
Thom

Hi Guys,

Is there a simple script/command within Powershell that will allow me to create a hierarchical folder structure. Like the below

Company Name (root folder)
 - Photos
 - Documentation
                 - Sys Docs
                 - Company Brief
 - Website Backups
 - Organisational Chart
 - Config/Firmware Files
 - Software  

The Company name is the main root folder which will be pulled in from a list of clients from a CSV, so it can look at the CSV create customer name folder then the sub folders underneath that, as we would like to create this for all of our clients, ready to upload to SharePoint.

Thanks in advanced

I could use some help with creating a poster.  Basically I need to take a picture of an iphone and blow it up so that it is poster size.  The size of the poster would be to fit over a regular door.  So like 36" x 80".  Can I do that without any special programs and without losing resolution on the picture?  If someone could coach me with steps... I would be forever grateful.   We do have a wide format printer with 36" paper... so I do have a method to print it... I just need to know how to create it!   THANK YOU!

We are using Smart Image Processor to batch convert .png files to .jpg, but the background is getting converted from white to black for some reason, even when matte white is specified for the conversion.  Does anyone know how to fix this, or is there another batch image converter available that is better?

Years ago I used a program that was very versatile and very easy to use, I cannot remember the name of it at this time but need any program that will do the same job. I do remember that it was either free or next to free. It always worked flawlessly. Perhaps if some experts make some suggestions that it will "ring a bell" in my memory.

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.

Due to image corrupt i lost my all images and photos. I tried to recovered via Stellar Phoenix JPEG Repair and  TrIDNET. but  did not get success. I also tried Gallary Pro and ES Folder Manager. But no luck.

I really appreciated if you try to solved it out.

Thanks

Good Day,

I am looking to complete a project that involves resizing photos from various folders using a script.  The scope of the project includes:
•      Needs to be automatic and silent
•      Needs to ignore photos that are under a certain size.
•      Needs to ignore photos that have already been resized (avoid looping)

Any recommendations on a program or way to best approach a project such as this? Thank you!

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

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

I am using Image Magick to manipulate some photos and then at the end convert to a gif. I am getting stuck at add a watermark to every single .jpg in my directory. The below code allows me to add a watermark to a single jpg, but there is not way to do it to ALL my photos in a directory. Looking for options here. My entire code is all in powershell. I was playing with Get-ChildItem but I am not good enough to figure it out. Any help would be great!

magick.exe "C:\test\photo.jpg" "C:\test\logo_32.png" -gravity northwest -geometry +10+10 -composite "c:\test\output_1.png"

Open in new window

We have a Windows 10 PC that is giving an error when trying to open images or videos. The default application for the images is the Photo Viewer but when we try to open an image, we get an error saying Class Not Registered with the path of the file. If you right-click on the photo and open with Paint, it opens fine but the user prefers to open them in the Photo Viewer. Any thoughts on why this is happening and a resolution?

Thanks.

I have about 30 000 files which are a mix of jpg, png, mov, mp4 and potentially others.  Total size is around 70GB.  I've collected these into a single folder structure and left an upload to google photos running, and then used the desktop uploaded and left that for a week to upload any that were missed.

Now, I'm not sure which have uploaded successfully and which haven't.  The 'log' created during the upload is not helpful when working out which files haven't uploaded.  I've done a download of the photos from google photos through their backup system.  However, I can't just windiff between the two folders as they have different subfolder structures.  I've tried doing an xcopy of files to a single folder but some of the files have the same name (although different dates) and I may miss out on file-extensions that I'm not aware are in the listing.

Does anyone have any ideas or scripts I could run to make the problem easier to solve, or to come up with the final list of files that haven't uploaded?

I need a iphone backup app (Windows PC or iPhone) that will backup EVERYTHING (texts, phone call history, contacts, photos, etc.) and allow you to restore to a different or same iphone assigned to a DEP/MDM account.  I'm moving my companies iphones to a DEP/MDM solution and having a difficult time finding 1 app that backs up existing info on an iphone and getting that info back on the phone once it's configured on the DEP/MDM system. iTunes backup will not work because it requires an apple account to restore.

Anyone with any help in this particular situation would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I'm a Windows guy, so maybe I'm missing something...

When I open up a Macbook Pro and lick on the Photo app, I can see all (14K) photos.

I've recently installed Lightroom 6, and tried importing those photos into the Lightroom catalogue. Problem is, I can't find the Mac Photos folder during the Lightroom Import process.

What am I missing?

Thanks in advance.
