Recently started using  Paint Shop Pro 7, an upgrade from PSP 5.  When I use the Fill tool it says: 'No background style selected. This tool requires a non-null background style. Check the settings on the color palette.
All I want to do is change the background color with the Fill tool.
Also is there a Help or tutorial somewhere. Since Corel bought Jasc it is hard to get support. I guess because Corel wants you to buy their impossibly complex Photoshop.

Thanks.

Looking for a freeware screenshot capture program for W7 / W10 to:
  • Capture entire screen upon Print Screen button
  • Automatically Prompt the user for a comment, such that they don't have to bring up an image editing program in a UI
  • Then save to disk (jpg, png, etc.)  upon completion of the comment.

I'm attempting to collect feedback from a large number of employees about issues they have with a particular program.
All the machines are cloned and set up identically.
I anticipate writing some light code to then FTP (or maybe programatically email) the file once created.

The old ScreenPrint32 did the comment capture part perfectly for prints (but wouldn't capture this for saved files).  It just popped up a fill in the blank box upon the trigger (Prt Scr button) and as soon as the user hit the OK button on the comments, everything was done.  No more interaction.  Unfortunately, ScreenPrint32 is a little flaky under W10 even when run in compatibility mode for XP sp2.

Something like Greenshot (my fav) saves it nicely, but you have to interact with an image editing program to add a comment.  No bueno.
Thanks.

Microsoft Office Picture Manager
Microsoft Office Picture Manager was included in Office 2003, 2007, and 2010, but not in 2013 or 2016. Now that Office 2019 is here, the bad news is that it is still missing, but the good news is that the same no-cost method that works to install it with Office 2013 and 2016 also works with 2019.

Hi,
I need the way to select one area and insert color inside, while the background details are still shown, to the picture, in GIMP.

Or is it not achievable to this, in MS paint?

How to put a date-time stamp on a PDF file with free software - Foxit Reader
I previously published an Experts Exchange video Micro Tutorial that describes how to scan documents to a PDF file using an excellent, free product called Foxit Reader:

How to scan to a PDF file with free software

N.B.: As with any "free" software, there may be restrictions, which are always specified in the software's licensing agreement, typically known as the End-User License Agreement (EULA). I encourage you to read the entire EULA of this product to be certain that you are in license compliance.

This new video Micro Tutorial shows where to download the free Foxit Reader and explains how to use it to place a date-time stamp on a PDF file.

1. Download and Install the Free Version of Foxit Reader


Visit the website for Foxit Reader at Foxit Software:

https://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf-reader/

Select the language and O.S. from the drop-downs, then click the big, red Download button:

After downloading, run the installer.

step1

2. Run Foxit Reader


The installer creates a Foxit Reader program group with a shortcut to the Foxit Reader program.

Click the shortcut to run Foxit Reader.

step2

3. Put a pre-defined date-time stamp on the PDF


After opening a PDF file, click the Comment menu.

Click the drop-down on the Stamp button.

Click one of the five pre-defined Dynamic Stamps, all of which have a date-time stamp.

Position the mouse wherever you want the stamp and click to place it.

step3

4. Create a custom date-time stamp


Click the drop-down on the Create button.

Click Create Custom Dynamic Stamp.

Select a Stamp Template and fill in the options in the dialog box.

Click Add.

Click OK.

Need help with Photoshop 5.1.  I've down loaded a shamrock from the net.  I need to fill it with "Kelly Green" and add some centered text into the image itself.
As far as filling, everything that I've read on the net doesn't work.

Also, how do you center text in the image.

Thanks

Most experts at EE want to solve problems, not make their answers look pretty
Sure and I'm not for a second advocating that everyone should go around spending time on their questions and answers just to make them look pretty. That would be silly. Some may want to go to such efforts and that's fine too. It's all up to the individual where questions are concerned.

As the very first heading in my article states - "Create nicer looking borders in Articles submitted to Experts Exchange"

Asking and answering questions isn't the only thing that Experts Exchange is about. It's also a learning center. A place to share your knowledge and in turn, also learn from your fellow peers.

So this article is "mostly" aiming at those who write tutorials, how-to's and other types of articles, who may want to take a little bit of pride in how their work is presented to the world. I edit many articles at EE and I wrote this because I've been asked the question many times. Now rather than write the same answer multiple times, I can just point future askers with a link to this article. Make sense?

Thanks for your comment.

Regards, Andrew

I have photoshop elements along with outlook 2016 for Mac.  In preferences, set Outlook as the email client.
Share - next - and then it should launch an email dialog box with attachment.  However, it just closes.

Same happens when choosing PDF.

Works fine with Mail.


Any thoughts are appreciated.

Hi Experts,

How much would someone charge for website maintenance under WordPress? I am not talking about backups, errors, etc., but simple text changes, new pages and some custom graphics like for the Featured Image?

I am actually not a designer myself, but a programmer, and I outsource graphics. But how much would a Featured Image cost on average, or how many hours?

How to scan to a PDF file with free software - Foxit Reader
I've published three five-minute Experts Exchange video Micro Tutorials that describe terrific features in an excellent, free PDF product called PDF-XChange Editor:

How to rotate pages in a PDF with free software
How to OCR pages in a PDF with free software
How to password-protect a PDF with free software

PDF-XChange Editor has many other features in its free version, but, unfortunately, it cannot do scanning — you must purchase one of its non-free versions to get scanning functionality. Fortunately, there's another excellent, free PDF product that can perform scanning — Foxit Reader. However, the free Foxit Reader cannot do OCR, so you'll want to keep the free PDF-XChange Editor for its OCR capability, and add Foxit Reader for its scanning capability. The combination of the two products will allow you to create searchable PDFs (aka PDF Searchable Image files) with your scanner, utilizing free software.

N.B.: As with any "free" software, there may be restrictions, which are always specified in the software's licensing agreement, typically known as the End-User License Agreement (EULA). I encourage you to read the entire EULA of these products to be certain that you are in license compliance.

Hello! I was following this tutorial and when trying to do the second part (with the animation of the Mona Lisa), everything was working perfectly until I got to the end. Once I keyframed the Max Horizontal and Vertical Displacements, the 3D motion effect was corrupted. When I would change the values back and forth, Mona Lisa no longer looked like she was "rotating", but rather the layers were just sliding across each other and did not look good. I'm not sure what I am doing wrong because everything worked fine right up until I had to do the actual meat of the task, which is keyframing it. I have After Effects CS6 by the way.

Suggestions for Google Drive features to use and Google Drive Plug-ins?

I am planning on providing a virtual tour of a popular tourist spot and plan to use Google Drive to display image during my live tour and to provide visual information for those taking the tour while I am not even there. So I have some requirements and a need for advice about what features of Google Drive and the Google Drive plug-ins could give me  more functionality.

I need to provide about 50 images which are:
1) ranked 1-50
2) can be gotten via key word search
3) each photo have some text explanation
4) each photo could be linked to other images, not necessarily the next image in the sequence. This allows grouping into a theme.
5) Mobile support

Does Google Drive do all this?

Do I need a Google Drive plug-in to do any of these?

What features have I not suggested which either Google Drive or a Google Drive plug-in provide which might be useful?

Lastly, what security / fraud concerns do I need to protect myself against?

Thanks

Hi, my teams often bring new designs to me for Websites and Apps.

I have been looking for a way to markup my feedback on their designs digitally and send back to them quickly.

I have looked into Google Jamboard and other similar screens but they are not available in Ireland.

I have an iPad Pro and a Pencil and I was thinking of getting them to do the following, however the process is very cumbersome for the designers:

01 - email each design / screen to me
02 - I save them to Camera Roll
03 - import into a sketch program / app
04 - mark up
05 - save back to camera roll
06 - email marked up screenshots back to designers

Is anyone aware of an app or web app that reduces the amount of steps above or provides a more productive way?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Can I protect my images on Google Photos?

I may use Google Photos to provide access to my photos to a large number of people. I am doing this to support a live tour I plan to give. But, can people (strangers, really) delet my photos?

I hope be able to also block them, in some way, from backing up my entire folder of image to their PC.

So, what kinds of limited access can I provide to Google Photos?

Thanks

Need large display area tablet which is pretty low cost

I will be giving tours and need a cheap tablet with a large display area. I think Android would do the trick due to the higher cost of iPads.

I need to have a WiFi connection and the ability to scroll through images, which will be hosted on my website. I do not need much at all in terms of memory or fancy hardware.

I would consider used, as well, for a lower price.

Even old versions of Android OS are fine, at least I think so.

What is the largest display area for a Tablet?

How about Windows? Acer?


BUT, I need a large display area. Are there any enhanced display options which make it easier to show a small group the images? This kind of upgrade (to a less antiquated version) I would consider, IF it meant the display was easier to see.

So, what can you suggest for me?

Thanks
