Looking for desktop application to create PDF catalog (letter size) of photo images (thumbnails), six per page or more or less, with custom caption (file name normally) for each image.  A catalog with 600 images would be 100 pages long with six photos (3 up and 2 across) per page.  There should be a way to customize the header and footer.
PaperPort installer detected previous installation
You did a proper uninstallation of PaperPort. You even ran the official PP14 Remover Tool. But when you try to reinstall PaperPort, you get the dialog box above, which you can't get past. There is simply no way to install PaperPort! This article presents a solution that has worked for many PP users.
PaperPort Splash Screen
Sometimes PaperPort will not even open. It displays the splash screen (above) and exits, or it may show an "Application Crash" dialog before exiting (sometimes with a dump, sometimes not). There are many reasons for this problem. This article discusses several of them and offers possible solutions.
Dynamics 365, On Premise

How can we sharpen the resolution of the large Ribbon buttons as shown below?

My cousin (who I have no way to contact) put his father's color slides on the father's computer so the many dozens of images could be viewed as the screen saver, one photo at a time.
I have slides I need to get to my computer.
There are Youtube videos using DSLR cameras and cereal boxes with a hole, piece of paper, shine a light to show the image and then use the camera to take a photo. These slides are not worth buying a new camera.

I doubt the cousin used a high powered camera. He could have used an actual slide projector since i know his father had one.

Any other methods?
Why does my Canon SX720 HS NOT go into Record mode, and beep instead?

I record often with my Canon, and usually have no issue. But sometimes, pushing the Record button causes it to beep three or four times in rapid succession, and NOT record.

There is no error displayed. (Is there an error log somewhere?)

My only recourse is to power off then power up.

I do not have a clue what is happening, and fear that a longer video may be interrupted, where I am recording, only to find later it switched itself off.

How to delay the shutter on a Canon SX720HS

I can not find the option to have a 5 or 10 second daly on the shutter.

Streaming video from my Canon 40X SX720 HS to a MacBook High Sierra. I have not yet connected my camera to my network, but hope to figure out how to set up the streaming.

According to Canon, they do not support this but it requires third party software and works like other camera models from Canon.


Need a lower cost alternative to a Canon 40X SX720HS

This is a great camera, but out of my price range.

What is a good alternative that costs less money?

PaperPort Splash Screen
Sometimes PaperPort will not even open. It displays the splash screen (above) and exits, or it may show an "Application Crash" dialog before exiting. There are many reasons for this, but a recent cause that has reached epidemic levels is due to an issue with Firefox. This article offers a solution.

flicker how to make album and photstream privagte only to me

I tried below steps

Method 7 Flickr Desktop - Batch-editing Photos in an Album
Select “You”.
Click “Albums”.
Click on the album you want to edit.
Select “Edit in Organizer”. ...
Select “Batch Edit” the “Change Permissions”.
Choose “Only you (private)”.
Allow your friends and/or family to see your images. ...
Click “Change Permissions”.

It showed progress bar 100% and said thanks which make me think it is done

but when i go back it is still showing as public instead of private

how to make all my albums private rather than exposing them to entire world

also how to make my videos under photostream private

i wasted already 3 hours on this excersise but not solution yet

above link says it cannot be done

"when I went back to the set in organizr, they were still marked as private."

You can't check the permissions in Organizer. It will only ever show you your account default setting.

also how to make auto uploader on my cell phone and windows desktop/laptop to make all photos automatically uploaded as private rather than public?

Please advise
Hi guys

I am currently looking into providing a solution for my Photography studio teams and the retouchers who work with them. We have Adobe Creative Suite running on most of the machines here. The photographers churn out photos onto our fileservers constantly and it eats up the space. The fileservers are all saving files on our SAN. These photographs then get worked on by our retouching teams which then go from what they were in size to multiplying because of all of their layers etc.

They all are running on High Sierra. They are saving files on a Windows 2003 server and a Windows 2012 server. The bandwidth we have at our head office is a dedicated 200MB link with the capability to increase.

Based on the fact that we have Adobe Creative Suite, is there a way of having a centralised location which these guys can work on in the cloud? If not, then is Adobe Lightroom a suitable option?

The only thing I'm wondering is whether working on local servers will always be far quicker than any cloud based systems due to the fact that transfers are all gigabit on the LAN and that the cloud cant match that at the moment?

Any help would be great as I am looking into implementing a decent solution.

Thanks for helping
I would like to record the incoming audio & video (I'm playing a Computer
Based Training) from a site which I would like to record for review/revision

With ATube catcher (on my patched Win 7 & IE11), it  hangs/freezes the

I have a very old version (maybe Ver 7) on my Win XP & it has an option
to "record a video of a screen" but after recording, it only saves 1 frame.
I use Chrome (as IE 11 can't support Win XP).

Ideally, I need a freeware which records at the Wifi (Internet) rather than
trying to capture the screen video which often doesn't work very well.
Something that I could press a key combination to start recording &
another key combination to stop recording.   Ideally in compressed mp4

Any freewares?
Does Windows 7 have a DNG (i.e. photo) file viewer?
Is there a cheap/free viewer/editor?
Need a video hosting platform...

I will be selling my video online for $7-$9 each and want to ensure easy watching for the people who buy my videos.

I am new to the whole discussion and do not have an opinion of how to do this yet.

I hear Vimeo can do what we need. But does that require the user to have a password to log in?

I do not care of the file is downloaded to my customer's PC and would fear that a password would reduce the rate of viewership. I prefer to be more open so they can watch it with the click of a mouse.

Please describe some hosting platforms that could work for me.

I am told the cheap Vimeo could work for me, but I hope to hear some confirmation. And I have no idea what I would get versus what I wold be sacrificing.

Does MP4 have a default image option?

I have seen YouTube lets you pick the default image to display on the image, and I wonder if the MP$ format has an option also where I can set the default image to show?

Sometimes, the first image is not the right image to show...

PhotoShop CC: need to put a black frame around a photograph

I see how to drop images, create new layers and use the Rectangular Marque Tool, but can not see to get the square around the picture.

I place the picture and draw the square. Fine.

When I then try and fill, Fill... is not active.

I can not draw the frame without the picture there to frame.

What am I missing?

PhotoShop: using Lasso tool and need an invisible background to paste onto

I need to use Lasso to grab an image and paste it onto an invisible background

Need Best Video Settings for Canon SX 720

I took a video of myself, after many attempts, that looked acceptable. But I noticed the buildings in the background came in and out of focus.

Then, I noticed, when I came closer to the camera (during filming) even by inches, that triggered the change in focus.

I had the "wheel" set to "Auto" and I assumed there was an auto-focus thing going on.

I need to make yet another take, but first need to understand the video options for that camera.

Please let me know...

I am close to the camera, perhaps 4 feet away. And I am taping the buildings across the harbor, perhaps 1/4 mile away.

Also, is there a way to use Bluetooth for the Microphone?

Video: Need more light on my face

I mad a video but did so with bad lighting. I suppose this means the video is useless.

Or, can It be lightened somehow?

What can I do with a .MOV file?

I recorded movie in iMove but I need MP4 files.

How do I convert it?

Need my MacBook to make a movie of me

I need to use my Mac as the teleprompter and the video for the recording.

I will also use a Bluetooth headset for the recording.

What software do I need for this? I presume mp4 is the target platform...

Need to make a plan for an online video series...

I am good at writing and reading my audio scripts, recording them and editing them with Audacity. But I am new to video editing.

I plan to use Powerpoint, record my desktop and marry the audio into the video.

What's a good tool for this?

I have several Adobe licenses, and suspect I can use one of their tools for no charge. But, it may be overly complex for me??

What Adobe tool does what I need?

I have a Mac, so what other tools might work for me?

I want to have a standard enough tool where I can hand off the file to an expert for some final enhancement and maybe some animations...

Need to trigger shutter on a very long selfie-stick.

I have a Canon PowerShot 12X and hope to get a Canon SX720.

I want a really long selfie-stick I can use to dramatically change my perspective while making photos.

But I do not want to be bothered with setting a self-timer or recording it as a video, which I then need to watch to find that perfect shot, etc.

I need a trigger that will fire the shutter.

What technologies do this?

Can  I use my old camera for this? If I buy a Canon SX720, does this have the ability for this?

If Bluetooth i the trick, does this mean I need a BT trigger? Does this support Canon PowerShot 12X? Canon SX720?
