If I buy an iPhone X, what is the maximum resolution for an external monitor?  Will it run a 4K monitor at 3840x2160?

Is the word "pixelated" ?

In the early days of computing, when image resolution was very bad, image were drawn in little squares. And i need the name of that kind of drawing.

Is is pixelated? Or is it another word?

Hello,

In Windows 10, is there a way to show a full-screen slideshow and not see your desktop icons and open windows, etc?

This was doable (on-demand) in past versions of Windows by setting the screensaver to display a slideshow then clicking to run the screensaver. However, it appears that Windows 10 does not have a screensaver. Is that correct?

I did find a background setting for playing a slideshow but the images are just that, in the background, so the taskbar and desktop icons and any open windows are still visible.

PowerPoint shows slideshows (of slides that have inserted images) but I'm looking for a way to simply point to a folder and then launch a slideshow displaying the images in that folder (either in order or shuffled).

By the way, I also noticed that the background slideshow gives you a minimum of only 1 minute to change images. It would be nice to have a change option measured in seconds and also a way to go back or forward through the slides.

I'm sure there are a lot of apps out there which will do this but my question is really to find out if Windows 10 has the ability.

Thanks

Hi,

I have this image showing the 24 counties in Denmark.
Hele-landet--amt---skaleret-ned.png
The image is actually constructed (in GIMP) of a non-alpha layer per county combined to the total image including all 24 counties.

What I would like to do on my webpage is this:
1. Combine and position the individual layers (exported to  individual png files) in the html page, so that the first impression is that this is one image.
2. Make each individual image to an active link  where the image (no alpha) lights up in another color when hovering
3. Adding an actual link to each individual image (which should be the easy part, I believe :) )

I dont know if it is necessary to do this the way that I have described here, or if there is another - and maybe easier - way to do this.

Anyway, all ideas are very welcome.

Dear Experts:

I need to crop a batch of photographs by 40 pixels on each side. They all have totally different sizes. It is the 40 pixels cropping on each side which will be constant.

Is it possible to run a script for this task or may be even an action I do not know how to set up.

Help is much appreciated.

Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

I photographed 50 pages of a document and I tried to convert the 50 jpg files into a PDF document using Nuance PDF Create 8. However the pages of the PDF file are not consistently positioned (although they are all of similar dimensions in the printed document), very many of them turning out 'upside down' or 'sideways'. I tried to use Soda PDF 7 with the same result.

 And yet  if I display the JPG files using the various programs on my Windows 10 laptop ('photos', 'photo gallery', 'paint' 'windows photo viewer') all the photos display in the correct upright position.

I get a daily dilbert cartoon in my inbox. I save some of them. Right click, save image.  I can choose png, gif, bmp, jpg and maybe some other formats.

Any thoughts on which to choose? At least for these types of web images.  Not for something like a 4K high res image.

 I'd like to keep it small, but as clear as original / no loss of quality.

Hi,

After I finish editing an image, I would like to close the file so it's no longer in the editor the next time I invoke it. However, the FILE menu does not contain a CLOSE choice. How, then can I accomplish what I need?

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

I have an iphone 5, which specs say has an 8 megapixel camera.  I've taken thousands of photos on it, but just now have started trying to print some of them.  I'm using walmart.com to print online and send to me.  their photo processing app says the max print size is 4"x6" based on the quality of the photos. they are all about 500 kb size, which seems small for an 8 mp photo, also I think a 8 mp should be able to make a quality print of at least 8" x 10".  I don't see any setting to adjust photo quality, file size, mps, dpi or anything else on the phone.  Any ideas on how to maximize the photo quality to get larger prints?
the phone is set to Optimize iPhone Storage, which says it stores full-size images in icloud, however, the files are same size and quality in icloud as on the phone.

I used the PhotoShop slice tool to make 40 images from the 8X5 matrix, out of one image. I will use these images, side by side, and display them as puzzle pieces making up the one large image.

PhotoShop create GIF files. Why did it create GIF's?

I have made a few animated GIF's and understand that multiple image can fit into on GIF.

Curious why PhotoShop made this a GIF.

Thanks

I created a rather simple application that basically loops through records.

It cycles between two different forms and on one of the forms, it cycles through a list of jpg attachments as pictures on the form. Every time the form comes back into view using setfocus on a time, I want it to be displaying the next record.

The problem I have is that I want that image form to go to the next record WHILE the other form has focus so that the change between images is not seen by the viewer. (It also flickers really bad every time it changes pictures that ECHO FALSE has not been able to eliminate). Even if it didn't flicker though I still don't want the user to see the image change.

So, Here's what the code looks like:
Private Sub Form_Load()
    GBL_NS = "Screen1"
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Timer()
    Application.Echo False
    Me.TimerInterval = 0
    Select Case GBL_NS
        Case "Screen1"
            If CurrentProject.AllForms("frmShopLayout").IsLoaded Then
                Form_frmShopLayout.SetFocus
                Forms!frmSplashAnnounce.Recordset.FindNext True
            Else
                DoCmd.OpenForm "frmShopLayout"
            End If
            GBL_NS = "Screen2"
        Case "Screen2"
            If CurrentProject.AllForms("frmSplashAnnounce").IsLoaded Then
                Form_frmSplashAnnounce.SetFocus

            Else
                DoCmd.OpenForm "frmSplashAnnounce"
            End If
            GBL_NS = "Screen1"
        Case "Screen3"

I don't like the Apple "Photos" program  that came automatically with the upgrade from Maverick to El Capitan. I really loved the older "iPhotos" app. Can I safely uninstall "Photos" and replace it with "iPhotos?"

MY SYSTEM:
       ↓
   iMac
  Model Identifier:      iMac16,2
  Processor Name:      Intel Core i5
  Processor Speed:      3.1 GHz
  Number of Processors:      1
  Total Number of Cores:      4
  L2 Cache (per Core):      256 KB
  L3 Cache:      4 MB
  Memory:      8 GB
  Boot ROM Version:      IM162.0206.B00
  SMC Version (system):      2.32f20
 OSX Ver 10.11.16 El lCapitan.

...Actually, IF it were safe to do the replacement, I wouldn't even have to install iPhotos as I have a fully functional install of iPhoto resting on a sandbox/backup drive, where it was left behind as a relic after moving on from Maverick. ( I guess Apple's photo apps are included in the category of "untouchable" files that don't get wiped when backing up or syncing a system?). I figure I could simply get rid of "Photos" then just drag "iPhotos" back to the HD where it once ruled the roost!
IF it were safe to do this, how would I deal with "Photos" imports and collections already established? Would they show up magically in "iPhotos?"

Is this a feasible project?

I have the online manual, but can not read the buttons described in it.

http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/2/0300023632/01/pssx620hs-cu-en.pdf

For example, page 74 seems to discuss deleting images. But look at the button in the manual. Even with reading glasses I can not identify the button on the phone.

Please explain how to delete all images but with clear simple instructions.

Thanks,

How?

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

I'd like to turn this image into an icon using PhotoShop CC.

Please explain how. I'll need to play with it to het it to the right size.

I see I can simply adjust the Width value and the aspect ration is maintained.

Is this the right way to do it? I notice the size of the canvas dd not change to the small size.

When I try and reduce the canvas size to match, I get the attached

Clipping error.


Thanks.

Never had this problem before.  Guess I should have bought a bigger Mac.
My Adobe photo library is outgrown my 1 TB SSD storage on my MacBook Pro.   I am going to move the libraries to a 5TB USB drive linked to the Adobe Applications for processing.  Obviously, off the shelf USB drives are not the professional drives that are in the Apple's notebooks.   So, to avoid losing years of photo processing I will need to back up the USB drive to Cloud Storage.  Could you suggest a cloud backup system and backup software?

I do use Time machine to backup my MacBooks SSD alternately  to two 2 TB USB drives.  Doubtful if they both would fail at the same time.

Thanks,
Howie

I am using Word to create a PDF and wonder if it's possible to create an image with "hot spots" which are links to other parts of the PDF or other web locations?

TheImage would probably start as a PNG. I wonder if I can select regions in the image and give it the HTML equivalent of an anchor tag?

Or, is there a way using PhotoShop to create some other form of document type that s clickable?


Thanks

How do I do that?

I can center a box at the center of the canvas, but that was an exercise. I really ned to center a bung of boxes along the centerline.

I also ned to select an individual box so I can move it up to down to align it visually to the place I want it.

Thanks.

I see how to create a rectangle and how to place text on the page. I can even add it to the rectangle. But I want the text to travel with the rectangle, as I move it around.

How?
