Hi

We have a graphics designer who is using Macbook pro laptop.

She stores all her photos from her iPhone (because she takes a ton) in the Photos app.

The photos app currently has photos going back 5 years and it is filling up space on her hard drive of the laptop.

Can someone recommend a solid solution to archive her photos from the Photos app?

Here are the requirements in the order of priority.

1. Easiest way to export/archive so a normal user can do it.
2. Preferably cloud destination but export to external HDD should be fine.
3. The exported/archived data should be readable from anywhere i.e. even from a PC.
4. Import back at a later date should work properly in the sense that the imported photos should appear as they did before they were exported/archived.

Ask any questions if you need more information on the environment.

How to get the image bitmap from TSpeedbutton

Hello.  We have a very strange error occurring with PowerPoint files in our SharePoint 2013 intranet environment.  Whenever we upload a PowerPoint PPTX file to the server, attempt to open it from the document library by selecting Edit or by Checking out first, the file still opens read-only.

I have tried removing some slides which seems to fix the issue but it is never the same slides that are causing the issue.  So on a 60 slide file, in one iteration, I remove slides 1 thru 5 which still opens read only, but if I remove slides 6 thru 10, it will open normally.  However, if I put slides 6 thru 10 back and remove slides 11 thru 15, then it also opens normally, so no specific slide that I know of is a culprit.  The filesize is 8-10 MB but I am not seeing any size limitations.

The other clue I have is the file becomes locked for editing by me after opening it read only from the library the first time.  I can no longer check it out or delete it.  The file does not appear under manage files with no checked in version under library settings.  I have also tried saving the file back as PPT with same result.  The slides use high resolution stock images that were optimized with Photoshop before being added to the slides.  All images are either JPG or PNG, and are all in RGB color format.  Some have transparency.  Resetting the pictures in PowerPoint does not work either.  In one case, I exported an image, and added it back and reuploaded to SharePoint which worked in another …

I'm trying to understand the the logic in which the iphone 5 has saved all my photos to my iphone.  I've used Windows explorer to import all the photos to my PC (I didnt select the delete after importing option).  I now want to delete many of the photos but the folder structure has many folder under the DCIM folder.

Some start with a number prefix like 100+[APPLE] or 100+[CLOUD].  Some of the most recent photos I have taken are spread between 100 and 104 folder prefixes.  My goal is to now to wipe the old photos and videos by selecting all DCIM folders and just deleting them.  Any issues with this?

I dont want the conversation to digress into using icloud or importing to some other tool or why I'm not doing it another way,

Hello,  

I have a client who is using Publisher 2016. When we click on Insert> Online Pictures>,  we get the option for Bing Web Search and One Drive.

We select bing search, find the picture we want to insert  ( jpg, or png) and select insert. A convert to file dialog pops up. "Says convert file from" and has a list of formats. No matter what format I choose I get an message " an error occurred while importing this file."

 This feature works file for other users. I don't see any difference in their setup.

I'm working with some caricature artwork in Photoshop that I'm trying to export / save for web so I can use them on my website.  I've done this hundreds of times over the years and I've never had this problem, but suddenly I cannot get Photoshop to export a clean image.

Using Save for Web (and I've tried the different options for re-sampling, although I never had to mess with that in the past) I'm getting images that look like this:  https://snag.gy/p1vcDS.jpg

You'll notice it has a nasty, hard edge and isn't clean.  I can't figure this out for the life of me.  Again, I've done this many times and I've never had this problem exporting transparent PNGs out of Photoshop, but I just cannot get these to work.  It's even happening on artwork that I've done this in the past with and didn't have any issues.  I've also tried the general Export to PNG and it's doing the same thing.

The original artwork is available here.

EDIT:   When I use PNG-24 (or simply Export As instead of Save for Web) it looks fine, however, the image size is 60kb vs. the 18kb size I get with Save for Web.  The smaller file size looks perfectly fine except for the hard edge, and again, I've never had this issue before using it so I'm completely confused why this is acting this way all of a sudden..??

Any information on what could be going on here or how to get this working properly would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Can anyone recommend a really good duplicate image finder that can compare some 100gb of photos by metadata e.g. exact date and time taken of the original photo rather than the name of the photo (as some of my photos might have different names after I changed them but they are the same photos).

Also is there a way of seeing a visual depiction of all the photos taken in a heat map style so I can see where there are large gaps (e.g. 1-2 months) where no photos are?

Also I am capable of doing a google search myself so what I am really looking for are recommendations based on what people have actually used and not opinions based on what they have read on a web site (as I capable of reading a blurb too).  Thanks.

My OS is win 10 pro 64 bit and one of my online sites I visit to make a purchase wants my DL ID, and further they want to activate my web camera so that they could take a picture of myself, my identity.  This site is for bitcoins.  The present small camera is a Logitech HD 720P.  The site says that the picture is not that good enough to compare with the  jpeg license I uploaded.  Thus the need to purchase a better one that would do the job, with the cost bearing in mind. Thank u for your suggestions. Regards

Preferences in firefox does not have files listed in file/applications. Every time I add a jpeg and then open firefox it switches the extension/app from preview to firefox as the open with. I have gone to fileinfo/changedtopreview/Are you sure you want to change all similar documents to open with the application “Preview.app”?/yes. Then the next time firefox is opened the jpeg files are switched back to open with firefox/default.

Good morning to whom this may concern,

We're currently in the process of upgrading our users OS from Win 7 to Win 10.
Some users have reported that when they've attempted to print images or documents from Microsoft Edge, or images from Photos on their system, the print option on their system is fine. However, when they go over to one of the network printers (Canon C5250i), nothing appears.
Other web browsers work fine (IE, Chrome, Firefox and Safari) and also users who still have Windows Photo Viewer installed on their system, are able to print from that.
I've done a test print to a local printer, from Edge and Photos, but they seem to print fine.

Has anyone else experienced this issue, and how they were able to resolve this?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Dear Experts

We would like to send promotional emails to the prospects . I understood it is recommended to have the content in the HTML versions as our creative agency provides us the image only, should we have to ask the creative agency to provide raw .psd versions and we have to hire  Htmlization services  and get it in the html versions. please suggest thanks in advance.

I got hundreds of small rectangle image pictures of a words that I cut open from a letter-page.
Question is  how to allow User to rearrange images visually to reconstruct a original or alternative story?  

All kind of extras as game-like % to see how near constructed is to original would be good also, with print out option of final work.  

First i can just copy them all in to Word-Blog and start re-arrange in there, but this ended up with a freezed session.

Also was thinking about some image gallery scripts that would randomize images  and would fill a page by adding  the rectangle images after each other in flat view (there would be no option to re-arrange but at least would be able to display the output some-kind in readable format).

Notes:
(image rearrange platform, web-script, flash puzzle like game where people can randomize images and then one by one order them up and down, after each other.  )

I dont want outlook blocking any attachments. These are invoices sent from customers. This is bypassing my settings in Junk email settings where I have set it to "no automatic filtering". And I have added all senders to "Safe Senders", but it still moves almost all email with attachments to junk email. jpgs, png, pdf. I have Exchange 2010 on premise, and I use Outlook 2016 from Office 365.
I would to get this turned off as most of my invoices now go to Junk Mail for a couple of months now.

Like we Import 10 images and it does
a. Resize all to equal sizes

c. Saves all back to a folder with some numbering

Thanks

I got a requirement to store some documents and photos into a Cloud service provider.

Just wondering which one should be considered? How much budget should I allocated per annual?

As a startup, I need to have a storage of 2TB. Subsequently, I foresee an incremental growth of storage like 500GB is required for the following years and I also need that cloud service to be available in Asia.

Let me know your thoughts.

Thank you

I had this question after viewing Setup webcam to take photo every minute.

I don't even know if this is possible but I would like to automate a WiFi cam to email me a photo from my rooftop at regular intervals - say every half hour. I only want stills and want them emailed to a digital WiFi photo frame. The idea is to enjoy the view that I don't have but avoiding killing the broadband with continuous video streaming. I have heard about yawcam which seems to have this functionality, but appears to be for Windows only.
Thanks

Been gone from FB sdk for a couple years now and just now getting back into it again for a project I am working on.

I've been looking over the new API documents and, correct me if incorrect, but it seems that FB no longer allows you to pull your friends photo's from their albums? Is this correct or am I overlooking something here?

I'm getting my access token by using the JS code to login and I'm able to query my own photos, friends, etc but once I place a friends ID into it instead of /me it does not show anything other than maybe their name and id even when I place the following into the graph query:

/{FBFriendIDHere}?fields=id,name,profile_pic,photos{link,likes{id},updated_time,picture,album,images}

Open in new window


Do each of my friends I am needing have to access my fb app and click the button to approve the permissions before I am able to pull anything on their profile now even when we are already fb friends?

I accidentally restored my iPhone to an old back up on iTunes.  I wasn't sure really what I was doing and went along with it, I was trying to get an old app back.  When it was done, I did get the app back but then I realized all my recent photos were gone except for the ones that were from the old backup.  However my new apps still came through and about 10 pictures from before.  But I know all those pictures were backed up because when I would randomly check it would say the current back up on my iPhone in icloud.  But now I cannot find them and I don't understand why they would be gone if they had been backed up on my phone.  Any ideas???
Thank you!
