I have Excel 2007.

In source.csv I copy all cells, the paste it into destination.xlsx using Paste Special -> Paste Values Only

Link shows up correct where I can click on the hyperlink

Main Image should show the image instead of the text value.

Seller should be a hyperlink where I can click on the hyperlink.

I want to be able to copy multiple fields in source.csv and paste them into destination.xlsx where Link and Seller shows up as a clickable hyperlinks, and Main Image shows the image within Excel and not text value.

How can I get Main Image to show up as an image correctly and Seller as a clickable hyperlink inside destination.xlsx by copying and pasting from source.csv?
Hello, i hope i am on the right board here, i dont know where exactly this is supposed to be.
I want to convert an image to .xbm (binary bitmap) because i need the image in hex format to display it through an ESP32.

Thanks in advance.

Can anyone help me solve below problem:

I have over 2000 png images saved in different files on my computer. I want to write a VBScript function that does something like go to a particular folder and iteratively copy-paste all the png files in that folder to a PDF file or word document .

1. The header before pasting the png files in the word document should be same as the folder name.
2.  The .png files should be inserted in order of when they got created. That is the first created .png file will be first inserted and the last will be last inserted in the word or PDF file.
3. Upon successful copy of all the .png files in this folder,  the folder should be deleted.

Any assistance if this is possible will be appreciated
Would like to merge multiple files of varying file types into one PDF.  These files are being uploaded to an Amazon S3 bucket.  Need a way to just select the files I need via a web interface on my website and output the files into 1 PDF.  Is there code or scripts anyone can recommend to accomplish this task?  Some file type examples needing to be merged into 1 PDF would be JPEG, PNG, and PDF.

Code I am working in is basic .NET C#

Any help / advice would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks!
New Android Phone - which was used to take around 100 pictures, however, I transferred them all to a Win 10 machine - but they all appear as thumbnails?

(native Android photo app seemed to be set at 13MP)
I would really like to understand what is going on here --

Background:  We print thousands of labels daily using both thermal-transfer and inkjet printers.  All of these labels are custom designed, mostly in Loftware Label Manager Design32 software.  Most of these labels include "standardized" elements which we save as image files and then link to in the label design templates.  Many of these standardized elements have been in use for four or five years; all are saved as .png image files.

Yesterday, I upgraded to the most current version of the Loftware applications and quickly found out that it was unable to properly display these images.  Generally speaking, they would be cut off width-wise.  So, for example, an image that was supposed to show "REF" surrounded by a bordering box displayed as "RE" with the right side of the box cutoff as well as the F.  Note that it didn't matter how big I made the bounding box; the image was still cut off.  Even the image selection preview window shows the image cut off.

Some investigation revealed that these images were displayed properly by Windows Explorer as well as Windows Photo Viewer whereas Irfanview displays just a black box of the correct dimensions.  

I found that if I open the image in Paint and then simply re-save it (still as .png), both Irfanview and Loftware now display the image correctly.

I'd like to understand what is happening here.  Anyone have any ideas?

I've attached one of the images in question.
When a user is exporting images using K-Pacs Workstation 1.6.0 the images mostly show up in dcm format. Is there a way to make them default export to jpeg or another more readable format?
Looking for desktop application to create PDF catalog (letter size) of photo images (thumbnails), six per page or more or less, with custom caption (file name normally) for each image.  A catalog with 600 images would be 100 pages long with six photos (3 up and 2 across) per page.  There should be a way to customize the header and footer.

I have created labels using access 2010.  They have 4 across and 13 down.   Everything looks good except I inserted a picture on the label and it's only showing up on 32-42 of the labels.  There are 52 labels going across then down.  so the last 10-18 won't have the picture on them.  why would it do this??

I am closing this question.   I had compacted and repaired the db and then opened it again and same problem.  But after a reboot overnight, it was working fine. I'm chalking this up to gremlins in the code.  Have a great day!
I was actually trying to do read an image, do object detection on it and write a new image that has detected objects marked in it. A new image does indeed get saved in the working directory but I am unable to open it using cv2 or using any of the image displaying softwares on fedora. i tried uploading it to a photo uploading site and it displays properly. I did go through the stack overflow, they say the issue was regarding trying to read a png image using a jpeg reader and as per what i could understand i tried installing libpng but still does not work.Would be grateful if someone could help me with it. Here is the code I have tried:

from imageai.Detection import ObjectDetection
import os
import cv2

execution_path = os.getcwd()

detector = ObjectDetection()
detector.setModelPath( os.path.join(execution_path , "resnet50_coco_best_v2.0.1.h5"))
detections = detector.detectObjectsFromImage(input_image=os.path.join(execution_path , "car.jpg"), output_image_path=os.path.join(execution_path , "imagenew.jpg"))

for eachObject in detections:
    print(eachObject["name"] + " : " + eachObject["percentage_probability"] )

For a project I have a  Python PyQT4  application in full screen mode that is running on Windows 10.

This application has now to take photos.

Ideally the Photo  application would be a widget in pyqt and we could therefore design the layout (img size / exposure / flash / take picture buttons / etc), but it's also OK to use another full screen application, that could be started via subprocess.Popen().

The application would ideally be able to choose the image resolution, exposure, framerate of viewer window but it's also OK to take picture always with the highest resolution and to perform the downscaling afterwards.

Any suggestions of how to do this best?

 Although the program used to run smoothly on win98 and VB5 now cannot read the pixel info of an image (ie. jpg or gif) and therefore cannot proceed

Hi, i had a friend of mine, she brought her mac laptop (model below):

- MacBook Pro, Retina, 13-inch, late 2013
Processor 2.4GHs intel core i5, Memormy 4GB 1600 MHz DDR3, Serial Number: C02LG613FGYY

She showed me that her Storage is 50.49 of Photos but she is aware that in her iphoto folder only has about 10 photos and the rest she had deleted them. She is confused as to why her storage is 50gb of photos - maybe they are stored somewhere which we are not aware of? Please can you advise?

I have the following code which reads radiometric data from an image (temperature data)
     using (MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream(Convert.FromBase64String(readTemperatureContents)))

                BinaryReader br = new BinaryReader(ms);
                _temperatureData = new float[320, 240];

                for (int x = 0; x < 320; x++)
                    for (int y = 0; y < 240; y++)
                        _temperatureData[x, y] = br.ReadSingle();

Open in new window

In this loop, I also need to build a semi transparent image, and depending on the value in
 _temperatureData[x, y] = br.ReadSingle();
I will need to color the pixel as white, green, blue or red (with a 50% transparency)

The overall result should see a lightly transparent color over the "hot spots"
I'm using, c#, framework 4.6

I've looked at system.drawing bmp but not sure if thats a bit old now or if there are better ways to do it
I would expect the image to be a  PNG as it can handle transparency well, and some pixel will be completely transparent, others will have a 50% transparency with a color overlay (like red)

after the loop is finished, i need to set the image on the web page:
<img runat="server" id="schemesImage" />

Open in new window

could anyone help me with this please
