I would like to know where is the location of the recent photos and favorites is in the PHOTOS App on my Windows 10 PC? I would like to see different photos instead of a single photo in the Photos App Tile in the Start menu. I am attaching a screen capture.

Thank you,

I have this problem when I delete a picture using photo viewer, the picture does get deleted but it remains on the screen for some reason until I click either refresh or click exit the screen. When in fact there is only one copy of the image . so when I delete it ,it gets deleted in a sense but another ghost image comes from somewhere and appears and I click on it to be to be deleted and it never ends. Can someone tell me what is going on here? what is the solution ? Why is this happening?

Hello,

What's the best/easiest way to create a diagram or template which will overlie any content on the screen?

For example, suppose you create some type of diagram using PowerPoint as shown here:

2019-08-10a.png
Is there a way to save the diagram as some kind of image file which can then be displayed (outside of PowerPoint or any other application) to overlie (ie be always-on-top) whatever apps/windows may be active or displayed on the screen — such as the EE website:

2019-08-10b.png
Thanks

Need to easily make a composite matrix of images

I have roughly 20 images of faces I need to make into a composite. Think Brady Bunch...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_The_Brady_Bunch_characters

4 rows, 5 columns...

But I do not want to need to reduce the size of any image. I want it to auto adjust to fit.

Suggestions for a tool?

Word has a table layout where I could drop each photo. But there will be white space. I instead want this to look like one image with 20 faces.

Suggestions?

It need to be easy...

Thanks

Lay images out for printing on an 8.5 x 11 page.

Is there a free online tool that does this well?

If not, what about a free offline tool?

Need a Mac alternative to MSPaint?

I do not want to learn Gimp. I can not tolerate the incredible bugs in Paintbrush. It lets me design exactly what I need. Then, it fails to save it!

Screwed up!

What free options?

I am slowly learning Photoshop, but it is a slow and steep learning curve.

I need fast, and may just use MSPaint, But that has just one layer of Undo.

Crazy difficult finding good software

Thanks

Moving an image in Adobe PhotoShop?

I have four images, each on its own layer. So, it should be easy to move or resize any of those images?

Wrong!

I do not know the secret trick to do this.

Can someone help?

Thanks

Paint and Word have the largest fonts set at 72. Where can we get larger fonts for a 2 line text that will be saved as an image so it can be pasted as a still photo on a video?

Become a CompTIA Certified Healthcare IT Tech

This course will help prep you to earn the CompTIA Healthcare IT Technician certification showing that you have the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in installing, managing, and troubleshooting IT systems in medical and clinical settings.

I used to have Photoshop Elements and therefore uses 'Elements Organizer' to location and sort my large collection of digital photos (40,000 plus). I no longer have that program and use GIMP to do all my advanced manipulation, editing and photo restoration.

I am looking for a replacement photo management program (not necessary one that imports collections from 'Elements Organizer') but it must have the following:
  • Easy to setup
  • Ability to create user-defined Albums
  • The ability to create and apply an unlimited amount of tags which can have a folder / tree like organisation (so if you select a parent tag all photos that have child tags are selected
  • Ability to launch an external photo editor
  • Ability to select photos by time or tag
  • Open source and complete free
  • Cross-platform so it works on Windows and Linux (not essential but ideal


I have tried 'digiKam' but it's documentation is rather confusing and interface is rather clumsy, like:
  • what is the difference between a 'collection' and 'album' because they seem the same
  • if I create a single Album why does it create a number of sub-albums that are an exact mirror of the directory structure - because I can do that disk organisation  for myself

A student (with a budget)  needs a PC laptop to run AutoCad.
Dell has what looks to be a deal.
The student says that he is concerned with blueprints and floor designs, not so much 3-D rendering
Will an Intel UHD Graphics 620 be acceptable for reasonable speed using AutoCad?

Thanks

I have a Quicktime .MOV file that I would like to convert into a autoplaying, looping file of some sort that I could then place on a website.

It is an animation, with just a few graphic images moving.

I need it to very very compact.  A similar Shockwave Flash file was 140k

Thanks.

The Windows 10 user was really productive using Picasa (when it was around)
Rather than continue to use an old version of Picasa, they would like to use an application that has almost the same functionality, especially including:
Automatic sorting by date
Deletion of duplicates
Creation and sharing of albums
Simple editing of photos.

They have an iPhone, a lot of storage in iCloud, and they're using iCloud for Windows for synchronization.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi,

 I created a 4x6 label designed in LABEL MATRIX 2018 software and it is connected to MS ACCESS table. When I print the labels directly to ZEBRA ZT220, everything looks good. Sine I also need to send these labels to another facility via email to be printed to their ZEBRA ZT220, I created a PDF file containing all 1300 labels using PDF creator software. The problem is that when I printed a few from PDF file, it prints about half on each 4x6 labels.

 Is there a way to create a PDF file with right format?

Thanks

I had this question after viewing Photoshop CS6 Export Multiple Layers with Fixed Top Layer Effect on All.  I have an extremely large (383mb) psd file with over 200 layers.  I created the file using photoshop CC (current verison is 2019).  In it I have several base layers that I use for the background for the other layers.  So if I export the layers as a png file I might select layer 6 (which has several styles applied to it) and layer 10 as one image, then layer6 and layer 11, then layer 6 and layer 12, etc.  Sometimes I select the base layer (layer 6) and 2 to 3 other layers in combination.  I want to be able to automate this as much as possible.  I could save a copy of the psd and then flatten each layer so there would never be more than 2 layers selected (the base and the one I am selecting).  There must be some way to do this within photoshop!  Any ideas would be appreciated (I also wouldn't mind getting this large file downsized a little - over 380mb is far too large).

The user needs to convert a short flash video (.FLV) to a video loop of some sort that can appear on the home page of a website.  (I assume that a looping GIF might be the way to go)

How do I do this conversion?   I have tried a few websites that offer this service, but they either have trouble recognizing the .FLV file or only return an empty video.

I have the Adobe Creative Suite, but not all the apps are installed.

Thanks

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.
