I have a problem converting pdf to jpg via ImageMagick.

The following command works successfully by producing a pdf file from a jpg file.

convert.exe -density 300 "C:\TEMP\testing.jpg" -depth 8 "C:\TEMP\testing.pdf"

Open in new window


However, reversing the process by converting the pdf file back to a jpg file does not seem to work.
Errors are not shown, but no output file is produce.

convert.exe -density 300 "C:\TEMP\testing.pdf" -depth 8 "C:\TEMP\testing.jpg"

Open in new window


I have installed the latest imagemagick (ImageMagick-7.0.8-37-Q16-x64-dll.exe) from https://imagemagick.org/script/download.php and ghostscript (9.27) from https://www.ghostscript.com/download/gsdnld.html both for Windows x64.

Your kind help would be appreciated.

For 18 years I have been purchasing Corel Draw. As I remember I pay between $100 and $200 each update. Last December I was advised to update to 2018. I found an item on ebay that was an update for $37.00. I emailed the seller and asked if it was a TRULY LEGAL and serial number that I could register with Corel. Yes was the answer. I phoned ebay to ask if this were a valid purchase. They said YES. I bought it and it worked until last week when I began getting "OFFERS OF AMNESTY" from Corel!!!! Indicating that I had a stolen copy. After they kept bugging me I called them with evidence of my purchase and any other information they might have wanted. They ONLY wanted $249.00 for an update and NOT any sort of explanation. Stolen is stolen they said and this was the only way. They threatened to disable my software. If in fact the serial number truly is/was stolen then fine. Disable it and I will deal with the situation. Then they did disable it AND removed EVERY CDR file I have ever worked on!!!!!! I could not believe it. They I feel have NO right to steal MY creations and labors. After 18 years of paying their list price for updates they should realize that I am an honest person. "Shall I update you now?" was their only response from India. They ONLY want my money and NO explanation.
I demanded they return at least my personal files. That did not happen. The REAL black heart of such a large company now shows through. I just want my files back. They can keep their software. There …

Hi,

I have to create an explorable visualization of a protein network.
I saw this component which looks good for my needs.
The problem is that it is too limited.
Is there a way to add features to it, or is it only up to the Microsoft team to develop.
Are these other recommended options that don't require heavy development, that can give similar results.

Thanks,

Eran

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.

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?

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

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?

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

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

Adobe Premiere Pro - Installing After Effects

I had a video developer create a video for me using Adobe Premiere Pro. I also got the complete Premiere Pro project and all the related files. But when I try and open the project and resolve a missing file, Motion.aep, I am told I need to install After Effects in order to import the file.

How do I do this?

I have a Mac Premiere Pro CC 12.0

Thanks.

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.

Thoughts?
