I have a brand new Windows 10 Pro laptop (Thinkpad X1 Carbon) - almost brand new - which started having a problem with the Photos app that comes with Windows. As of yesterday, when I opened a jpeg or any other image type of file, it opened and displayed without a problem in the Photos app. Now, suddenly, when I attempt to open a jpeg, I get an error message informing me that "the app didin't start". I've attached an image of the message to this question.

I've googled a few things about this and tried a few things that would supposedly fix this but nothing has worked.

Any ideas?

The things that have changed since this problem surfaced are:

- I downloaded and installed a windows 10 update yesterday morning
- I downloaded the latest version of Adobe Reader, which I then uninstalled because I wasn't crazy about the extra security stuff that came with it
- I attempted to restore the system to the pre Win 10 update to see if maybe the update messed Photo up. The restore failed due to Windows Firewall blocking something ... at least that's what it said.

Any ideas?
Unable to print from Microsoft Edge browser and some other default WINDOWS 10 APPS like photos, tried reinstalling the printer. tried CNTRL + P.
however works absolutely fine from other browser like Internet explorer.Issue is only related to EDGE
Can anyone any good at photoshop but a new head (with peroxide in hair, so really just a face replacement) or new peroxide hair do to this face?
I have been working on it for ages.  The angles are odd and she seems to have a really narrow face or something is making it impossible to achieve.  I'd love the sunnies removed too, so maybe yeah a new blond face...
Can anyone help?
All my pictures in my laptop do not show jpg images. Instead I get Notepad writings instead ofpictures. Why this happen?
How to save and click open my pictires in the laptop?
How can i recover data that has been blacked out from a jpg file
 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
 to calculate the Lab pixel values from RGB? In particular I have test pics of 100x100 pixel and program now reads 585x1890 !!  Any ideas?

 Following is the part of the program

 Public Sub Command1_Click()

 OFName.lStructSize = Len(OFName)
 'Set the parent window
 OFName.hwndOwner = Me.hwnd
 'Set the application's instance
 OFName.hInstance = App.hInstance
 'Select a filter
 OFName.lpstrFilter = "Image Files (*.bmp;*.jpg;*.png)" + Chr$(0) + "*.bmp;*.jpg;*.png" + Chr$(0) + "All Files (*.*)" + Chr$(0) + "*.*" + Chr$(0)
 'create a buffer for the file
 OFName.lpstrFile = Space$(254)
 'set the maximum length of a returned file
 OFName.nMaxFile = 255
 'Create a buffer for the file title
 OFName.lpstrFileTitle = Space$(254)
 'Set the maximum length of a returned file title

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 always been confused as how exchange photo works with AD photo attributes. do they sync? can we make it possible so exchange photo sync with AD?
we have our AD gets updated with employee photos daily and I have disabled users ability to change their photo in outlook. however, if a user photo is updated in AD it does not update the exchange photo.
Can someone explain to me how exchange photo works when it comes to AD photo.

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

I have an image which is 320x240 pixels

When the user hovers over the image, it needs to show the selected (hovered) pixel data on the screen
I've got it working with the co-ordinates, however I have an object with other data that relates to the pixel

You can see here the pixels 0,0 = 280:
....instead of showing the coordinates, I need to show the reading which corresponds to those pixels as seen here:
I've attached a basic project which you should be able to fire up and instantly see it in action. (needs to be renamed as a rar file )

I'm guessing I need to write the code behind object to a Javascript object, and then use this on the hover?
any help appreciated here!
This is the command line that I am needing to convert:

[code]convert maggie.jpg lisa.jpg bart.jpg homer.jpg marge.jpg -resize 100x100 \
null: \
\( -size 100x100 xc:black -fill white -draw "circle 50,50 50,88" \) \
-alpha off -compose copy_opacity -layers composite \
null: \
\( -size 100x100 xc:"graya(100%,0)" -fill black -draw "circle 50,50 50,90" -blur 0x5 \) \
-compose dstover -layers composite \
-background none -gravity center +smush -25+0 \

Which looks like this:
[embed=file 1287865]

This is as far as i have gotten with translating the command line:

List<string> lFiles = new List<string>();


using (MagickImageCollection images = new MagickImageCollection())
       MagickImage magickinput = null;

       foreach (string tempFile in lFiles)
            magickinput = new MagickImage(tempFile);
            IMagickImage _circle = new MagickImage();

            magickinput.Resize(100, 100);
            _circle = new MagickImage(MagickColor.FromRgb(255, 255, 255), magickinput.Width + 20, magickinput.Height);
            _circle.Draw(new DrawableCircle(50, 50, 50, 100));

How do I build a page that retrieves a the URL (using LINQ) and display that in the page.

I have parameter that I can pass in Request.QueryString("MyParam") and using this I can get the URL out:
Dim db As New DatabaseDataContext
Dim MyParam As String = Request.QueryString("MyParam")
Dim MyURL As myTable = (From x In db.myTable Where x.field = MyParam).FirstOrDefault

Open in new window

Now that I have the URL I will need to fetch it and display this. The Images are NOT in the ~Image folder (outside application folder).
These images are of file types "TIFF".

I have used the Image control and various solution from the web but could not really make it work.

What is the correct method to achieve this? May be I need to use some other control?

Your help will be appreciated.

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 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:

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!
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 “”?/yes. Then the next time firefox is opened the jpeg files are switched back to open with firefox/default.
