Is there an easy way without using the WWW to get background/foreground colors from the image itself that I am editing?

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 need to adjust image sizes manually for the rime being, since I do not yet know how to maintain aspect ratio on size reduction.

So, I need some measurement tool for the X and for the Y.

Does that exist?

I see that neat feature too Place an image, but when I try and shrink if from the top corner, the aspect ration changes, making the image useless.

How do I adjust the size and force to to remain true?

EE Pros,

I have a logo that I have created in Powerpoint that I want to embed in the Header of a Doc. I'm preparing.  Currently I'm using SNAGIT to capture the logo and embed it.  Unfortunately, when I convert the Doc. to a PDF file, you can see the pixels (sort of gray) in the background of the lifted logo.  I think this may have to do with rastering.

Can you advise me on how to get a clean PIC from a Powerpoint image I have created?

Thank you in advance.

I can use Photoshop CC to create a frame, but now I need to insert an image into it. How do I do this from an existing image file? Is there a way to make the frame adjust to the aspect ration of the image file?

I have a wide angle view of a map and need to put a circle (or square) round a small piece of it and over the enlarged detail on the unimportant part of the map.

How do I do this?

Can a pdf be used as an image on a web page?

Is there an easy, inexpensive way to convert a pdf to a jpg? Or png?

Thanks

I'm looking for new(er) unlocked cell phones for two family members.  We currently have iPhone 4S I bought on eBay.  They’ve served us well but now I’m looking for something bigger and newer, probably used or refurbished.  Our carrier is Consumer Cellular which is AT&T.  We don’t use our phones very much and we use basic features, calling, messaging, photos.  I’m thinking of getting some type of refurbished iPhone 6 (6, 6S, 6+ …).  

I have some questions:
1. Should I look for iPhones, since we already have them, or would another type of phone serve us just as well?  Its basic features would have to be as easy to use as the iPhone.  Are there better deals for Samsungs, Huawei… or other types of phones?  Or should we stick with iPhones since we already have them?
2. Can I trust used/refurbished phones?  Can you suggest the best places to buy them?
3. I’m always willing to spend a bit more money to get a lot more value.  Which model of phone should I look for?  6 versus 6S versus….?
4. Any other considerations?
Thanks,
Alan

Hi,

I'm getting up to speed with using SnagIt for screen captures. I'm trying to add a text box with an arrow pointing to a component of the screenshot.

While I can type text into a whitespace area of the screenshot, it displays w/o a border.  So, I need to figure out how to add the border. If SnagIt could do it automatically, like MS Word does for text boxes, that would be great. In addition, what's the best way to add a red arrow?

Thanks,
Steve

I can use Fuzzy Select to find the colored areas I want. How do I then add a dark order to that region?

Right now, it just twinkles to show it is active...so how do I transition to actually use that region?

I would like to buy a selfie stick for my iPhone 6 if it let me take pictures in a different perspective, and not of myself.

Sometimes, I want to be a few feet taller.

Can it be used for this?

What is the longest one I could get?

Can it secure my phone safely?

I would like the ability to come back that image and update any element which I add today. Does each event go in its own layer?

Or, is there another way to be able to edit, for example, a line? I may want to reduce the line width a month from now...

Thanks.

On the following advertisement, I see an item in the picture that does not appear in the list of items at the bottom of the page...

Any idea what it is?

See attached image...

ALSO, I have a question about the size of the memory card(s). I see this has two at 16GB each. I also see a refurbished camera with a single 64 GB card.

Can you give me some ice how fast a 16GB card would fit with this camera? Let's say, distant shots require me the max resolution and file size per pic.

How many would a 16BG card hold?

Thanks

I see how to use Gimp for Mac to draw a line, but it's to thick. I want 1 pixel.

I tried using the Brush editor with no luck.

What's the trick?

I have Gimp 2.8.22 (Mac)

On one image.

How do I do this? I assume a new Layer would be smart, but can not get this to work.

They are different heights and will need slight adjustments to dimensions.

This one does not work...

I'm very new to all of this, but I'm trying to figure out how to use the command line (or powershell) to convert a .pdf file in one folder to a .jpg file and place in in another folder.  I was trying to do this using ImageMagick, but if someone has another solution, I would be willing to try it.

I've built a PowerPoint toolbar for my company using VBA, one feature of which is to insert/change the background image of the currently selected slide.  It displays a File Picker dialog pointed to a specific folder in the corporate content library which contains over 1100 JPG images, the user chooses an image, then the code makes that image the background fill for the current slide.  Works great.

To aid in searching the collection, our corporate design team has added numerous tags to each of these .jpg pictures.  In a webpage environment the tags work as expected.  

But when inserting pictures into PowerPoint the tags behave differently.  You would assume that the search box in the upper right of this dialog would find not only pictures with the search term in the filename, but ALSO pictures where the search term is found in the file tags.  In fact you can see in the first image below it is highlighting a couple images where it matched "meeting" in the tags.  

Seems to find search term in the file tags
But on closer inspection, I realize it is only showing files where the search term appears in BOTH the filename and the tags.  If I pick a word that is only in the tags, like "Toothy," which we know from the first image is in the tags, the search does not find any matching images, because Toothy is never in any filenames.
But it does not find the match when search term is ONLY in tags
BTW, this behaves the same way whether using my macro code, or manually inserting picture from the regular PowerPoint menu.

I would …

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

I am looking for the best flexibility for the money. I see it may cost upward of $600 to get a complete setup for the Nikon Coolpix P900.

What broader options to I have? It seems, multiple lenses would be useful. Like this one:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CQJHJ2E/ref=s9_acsd_top_hd_bw_bCf6T_c_x_3_w?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-4&pf_rd_r=7Q91KRWBTPT978JNBWFR&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=87d2a035-5f2a-50a4-93d7-a2960559aa53&pf_rd_i=3017941

And if I were to buy a model that was state of the art 3 or 5 years ago, I wold expect to see more of them selling used on Ebay.

Suggestions?

Thanks

I tried the trick with a telescope and shooting into the eye piece from my cell phone camera and my Canon. This did not work for me at all. Also, the act of pushing the button to take the picture throws the image.

I think I need to pony up some cash and get a digital camera I can use to shoot buildings at about 3-4 miles. I do not need great detail, like if it is some kind of product shot, though.

I need an "all in one" solution. Maybe even with different lenses.

I  do not want to buy new, though. I am happy getting used equipment at a discount. Especially since the odd are higher I could get all the various accessories,like remote trigger and extra lens(es) at one price.

Please give me some idea of the camera I could consider. It should be a model that is a 2-5 years old, that may have been pricey in its day, but it behind the curve by today's top standards.

These are recreational pictures I will take for my interest in architecture, and not in any way professional, but maybe the camera would be a former professional grade some years ago.

Thanks..

I need to:

- add an image
- make changes to that image, like adding markers, lines, notes and labels

But I need to be able to move them and update them in subsequent sessions.

Obviously, the JPG (or other format) would be the format for output, but a Gimp file format must retain these object details in the file itself so they can be saved, then updated.


How do I do this with Gimp for Mac?

I have a Mac and need a basic image editing tool, bot not as basic as PaintBrush.

I need to ad line and text and various elements, and have the ability to change them later. I find I cannot edit a "flat image file" because I am limited to undo, and can not save the file and edit it later.

Why options do I have? I want a quick learning curve and hope I do not need some expensive tool.

I know for $29/month I can get an online license to Adobe, which totals $360/year! But I may consider that service for a few months IF it has tools I can use.

Thanks.

iPhone stuck in recovery mode.  We've tried resetting and DFU mode but to no avail.  Is there a program that I can just install on my computer, plug in the iPhone and the program allows me to manually find the pictures on the phone's hard drive?

Excel 2016/Win10:

I am maintaining a spreadsheet of bugs and suggestions for an application. Columns include
Date
System Area
Description
etc.

I've just encountered a bug for which I need to include a wide screenshot with sample data...too unwieldy to type everything into the Description column. Accordingly, what's the best way to attach this PNG file (or equivalent)? I can't use a link to PNG on my hard drive b/c I will be sending this spreadsheet to others.

Please advise.
Thanks,
Steve
