Part 1) I have tons of images from my research, where I have the same image in many different folders, often using the same filename. These do not involve a human face.


Part 2) I have lots of redundant photos of family and friends on disk and also imported into the "Photos" app on my MacBook.
None involve a human face.

I need a solution to help reduce redundant photos on my disk, since they are starting to clog my disk.

What options to I have?

If I used Picassa, does that only match like photos when there is a human face? Or is it pattern based, so I can use it to match on pictures of buildings also?

Is there an app I can use on the Mac, which I can keep private? I do not relish handing over 100% of my research and family photos to Big Brother in the Sky.

Thanks

Long time Picasa user who is looking for a current product to replace it.

I've tried PhotoShop/Lightroom and Affinity and they are the wrong product for what I'm trying to do.

Even though I do some fairly involved/creative editing, I'm looking for a product that focuses more on filters and effects as opposed to working with layers.

Used to use Microsoft PhotoDraw back in the day and really liked that product as well.

There seem to be dozens of products that do what I would want written for IOS, but I want something that can be used in Windows.

Any suggestions appreciated!

I know there is SOME way to create individual odd shape rectangles and simply join them.It took atl least 13 steps instead of creating 5 rectangles and joining them. PLEASE assist me in accomplishing this simple task. Easy for your....difficult for me. Can I get a hand?example of segments

User has the latest version of Adobe Lightroom - Mac.  They have configured a variety of file export settings, which they would like to use on their MacBook Pro.  

Is there a settings file or other method that could be used to duplicate Lightroom export settings on a second computer?


Thanks

Hi,

Is it possible to create colour libraries patterns in Adobe Creative Cloud, and then they appear in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Sketch, and Adobe Comp?

I'm constantly working on repeat client projects and I have to keep going back to their logo to sample their default color. I'm sure Adobe Creative Cloud has a better way of managing this across all of their software?

I need to use Photoshop CC to elect an object and place a darker border around it.

For example, this image...

typical object
How do I do this in an automated way? I do not want to draw the lines myself, with the line tool.

Thanks.

According to this...

https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Reduce-the-file-size-of-a-picture-8db7211c-d958-457c-babd-194109eb9535?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US&fromAR=1


I should have the option:

"Under Picture Tools, on the Format tab, in the Adjust group, click Compress Pictures."

Is this not supported on Word 2017 Mac?

I need to compress the images.

I have an 85 page Word Document with 85 images, and when I convert it to PDF the file size becomes 1.33 GB!

That is totally unacceptable.

I am flummoxed that the file could never be so huge. These image are in the size range of 1MB to 10 MB.

Are there different file formats I could use that convert better?

How do I reduce the resolution to those images? I am hoping for a Word feature that lets me reduce resolution inside Word versus me needing to handle each image outside of Word, which will take the whole day.

Thanks.

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?

Thanks

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.

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?

Thanks

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?

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 own CorelDraw 2017. I paid full price for it. It annoys me greatly that every time I open it I see Corel's ads wanting to sell me fonts, art or something. I have NO interest in anything they have to sell. I simply want to utilize my purchase. Is there a setting or method to get rid of their ads? Windows 10, 64 bit.

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
