I have a server running Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
I have a directory with a number of jpg files taken with an IP camera. I am trying to concatenate the jpg files into a single mpg video file using ffmpeg with the following command:

ffmpeg -f concat -i /tmp/myjpegs  /tmp/myvideo.mpg

I get the error message:
/tmp/myjpegs: Invalid data found when processing input

There is nothing else in the /tmp/myjpegs folder apart from the sequence of jpg files.

This the the output from the command:

  Right now I'm working on a basic Django application, I am learning how to upload an image from a User and serve it onto the web-page.  I have no issues when I create a new Topic (class) and upload an image through the Django Admin GUI.  It adds the image into my files structure perfectly, however when I try to upload the image through my html <form> I get a multvalueidictkey error from the enctype="multipart/form-data" on my  (form) action function.  If i remove that enctype from the form I get no errors but the image doesnt seem to append the media_root url.

Error Page
HTML form
HTML form  (form action function triggering error) (form action function triggering error)
I’ve yet to experience this error yet, but for some reason when trying to open a jpg file or a bmp file I get the error on the picture that’s included. I can open the file by right clicking and choosing open with using paint, but just double clicking the file gives me the error on the picture included.error when double clicking pictureshows apps set as default.
Somehow the picture view is TWINUI, but what seems to be the problem is when I change the default apps settings from TWINUI to paint the screen goes away. Because the screen goes away the settings never stays as paint for the picture viewer, and TWINUI remains the default for pictures. TWINUI is also the default video player for some reason; included a picture.

I tried copying and pasting the below into power shell but didn’t work.
Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode - Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}


get-appxpackage *Microsoft.Windows.Photos* | remove-appxpackage

If I log in as me on the PC with my active directory admin account I can successfully change the photo viewer, but I do not believe this applies to a group policy considering how long this problem has never happened before.

Is there a way to remove the TWINUI picture viewer? I do not see it listed in the add/remove programs, or listed as a feature to add or remove.

Maybe TWINUI picture viewer comes with an update?

I have an s3 url which is of the image in jpg format. I have the following code :
        BufferedImage image = URL(url));
I need to calculate the sizeof this image.
How do i do that.
I tried the following :
 public static Integer getSize(BufferedImage bufferedImage) throws IOException {
    ByteArrayOutputStream byteArrayOutputStream = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
    ImageIO.write(bufferedImage, "jpg", byteArrayOutputStream);
    return byteArrayOutputStream.size();

Open in new window

It gave 18183 bytes for an image of 14Kb which is wrong.

Mainly i need to detect if the size of the image is more than 1 MB.

Please suggest any ways to do it in java or any alternatives to achieve this ?

How do I copy (move is OK) single photo from iPhone [iOS 12.1.4] to Mac OS Mojave [Mac OS 10.14.3] with minimum effort. No 'Continuity Camera', No Air Play, No iTunes.

Click 'n Drag would be ideal, but likely not possible :-) - I do this infrequently and would like simple method to get 1 photo from iPhone to Mac OS. Copy to Desktop/Folder OK - just want simple method. iPhone is connected to Mac with Lightning/USB cable. Seems Apple must have solved this...

I have spent too much time with no photo copy/move - Help!!
oracle forms- alert window

I have created an alert . Code is here below

But the glitch is this alert window has a x that users can click to close. So in my code I added ELSE to make the alert pop up again if button 1 or button 2 not chosen. But this alert only comes 2 times and third time i click on x, the message on the third jpeg shows. How to avoid closing alert window? Help appreciated.

 answer := show_alert('NO_LINES_WARN');
         IF answer=ALERT_BUTTON1 then
		            raise form_trigger_failure;
         ELSIF answer = ALERT_BUTTON2 THEN

How to organize iOS/OSX photos from iCloud, 2 Macs and several iDevices (iPhones, iPods, iPad) so that all photos are always available on all devices - without any organization (grouping by date, type, etc) except chronological order by date entered, if possible. Future images are to  be added to iCloud current date with no grouping. No organization by Google (etc.) to be allowed. Just as in earlier days, when photo prints added to Album in order received.
Dear Experts,

I work with Coldfusion and from an input type file, i uploaded an image show in the current page. i would like that a resizable rectangle appear when this image upload and be able to crop the image by clicking on a button attached to it when the resizable rectangle appears but still in the current page, without load it by a submit form.
does anyone have some suggestions to do it with Coldfusion and may be Javascript ?

I have this picture of a cute, cuddly koala and I'm trying to use Photoshop to alter it to make it look ferocious or sinister. One of the things I want to do is give it large fangs (like that of a sabre-tooth tiger). Is this possible?
     I tried to research doing this myself but all I see are tutorials on how to turn existing teeth (on an image) into fangs. This koala image has his mouth closed, so you can't see its teeth, which means I'd have to make the fangs from scratch (something which I specified in my search phrase but which still led me nowhere).
    I've attached the image if anyone wants to play around with it. But I wouldn't mind someone just TELLING me how to do it.
I need a basic simple movie maker to be used with Windows 10. The purpose will be to supply the program with 10 to 20 photos that I wish to display for (xx) seconds then fade out and in to the next photo. I plan to uplink the "movie" to YouTube. Can anyone recommend a free or very inexpensive piece of software that will do the job for me? I am reluctant to utilize the available substitutes for the program that Windows 10 eliminated due to warnings from Microsoft that they are full of viruses and bugs. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
This is the original image

This image is in the media section of Wordpress and I went in and edited the picture in the form of downsizing and cropping.

Here it is after the editing

Yet when I go back into the media section or if I use the image on a webpage it shows up like the original.

I have deleted browser cache, I closed the admin section and re-logged in.  I reloaded the image into the page by deleting the old copy and then selecting the new image but it still shows the unedited version.

I am on Wordpress 5.03.

Please tell me how I can get the edited image on my webpage.  You can see the web page at just scroll down to see the image in question.

There's someone at work with a laptop that has Windows 10 Enterprise. He cannot open .jpeg files. He gets some error message that says "The app didn't start."
     I went to his Control Panel \ Default Programs. His .jpeg files are defaulted to open with Microsoft Photo.
     The following fixes I tried did not fix the problem:
          -Opening a command prompt as administrator and...
          .....typing:   dism /online /cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
          .....typing:   dism /online /cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
          -Opening a command prompt and typing:   SFC /scannow
          -Then restarting.
          -Going to his "Apps and Features," choosing "Microsoft Photos," then "Advanced Options" and then...
          .....clicking "Repair."
          .....clicking "Reset."

When laser cutting, if I want to take an image and engrave the details and then cut out the outline what is the easiest way to accomplish this.
To my understanding, I can use Corel Draw to convert to bitmap then delete all detail to leave only outline to make two different files.  
However, when I create my bitmap the edit bitmap feature disappears.

Any insight to an easy method for taking something like a picture of a line drawn tree, engraving detail, then cutting out the outline would be very helpful.
iOS 12.1.2. I'm trying to save an image that's in a message to my camera roll. When I tap and hold on the photo I don't get a save option--just "copy" and "more..." How do I save this photo to my camera roll--or, alternatively, paste it into same?

I've got a number of images (jpg) taken with a mobile phone camera.
When I look at the thumbnail picture (windows explorer) everything looks fine.
However when I open the picture in an image editor/viewer I find things like the image is rotated 90 or 180 degrees OR WORSE, the image is truncated.  By that I mean one might have a strip of grey covering half the image.
How can I 'repair' the jpg so the picture displays correctly ?
