I get a daily dilbert cartoon in my inbox. I save some of them. Right click, save image.  I can choose png, gif, bmp, jpg and maybe some other formats.

Any thoughts on which to choose? At least for these types of web images.  Not for something like a 4K high res image.

 I'd like to keep it small, but as clear as original / no loss of quality.

Dear EE experts,

Good day!
Apologize if we don't know how to explain the subject clearly, we would like to ask for tech advise support on what is the best software program that we can use for our requirement project (simple animate program).
Here's what we would want to happen:
- a software that will show the list of our products (small image only)
- after clicking one product, the image has different parts that can be clicked, including the removing of the product's cover (so the user can see what are the assemblies inside of it.
- inside, will show the parts, and when the user hover to one part, it will show some info such as Date updated, what are the update of it.

Basically, we want it to be animated a bit...

Thank you and hope to hear soon...

I used the PhotoShop slice tool to make 40 images from the 8X5 matrix, out of one image. I will use these images, side by side, and display them as puzzle pieces making up the one large image.

PhotoShop create GIF files. Why did it create GIF's?

I have made a few animated GIF's and understand that multiple image can fit into on GIF.

Curious why PhotoShop made this a GIF.

Thanks

I have the online manual, but can not read the buttons described in it.

http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/2/0300023632/01/pssx620hs-cu-en.pdf

For example, page 74 seems to discuss deleting images. But look at the button in the manual. Even with reading glasses I can not identify the button on the phone.

Please explain how to delete all images but with clear simple instructions.

Thanks,

I'd like to turn this image into an icon using PhotoShop CC.

Please explain how. I'll need to play with it to het it to the right size.

I see I can simply adjust the Width value and the aspect ration is maintained.

Is this the right way to do it? I notice the size of the canvas dd not change to the small size.

When I try and reduce the canvas size to match, I get the attached

Clipping error.


Thanks.

I am using Word to create a PDF and wonder if it's possible to create an image with "hot spots" which are links to other parts of the PDF or other web locations?

TheImage would probably start as a PNG. I wonder if I can select regions in the image and give it the HTML equivalent of an anchor tag?

Or, is there a way using PhotoShop to create some other form of document type that s clickable?


Thanks

How do I do that?

I can center a box at the center of the canvas, but that was an exercise. I really ned to center a bung of boxes along the centerline.

I also ned to select an individual box so I can move it up to down to align it visually to the place I want it.

Thanks.

I see how to create a rectangle and how to place text on the page. I can even add it to the rectangle. But I want the text to travel with the rectangle, as I move it around.

How?

I added this box an see how I can change its size an location on the right side controls.

How do I just center the box on the centerline of the page?

Hello,

I've recently been trying to learn more about color codes and complementary colors, particularly when using the color boxes in Microsoft Office apps. I'd appreciate answers to questions and comments regarding accuracy/inaccuracy of the following notes:

• RGB is an initialism representing Red, Green, & Blue
• RGB code uses a scale of 0-255 in order to maintain a 1:1 ratio with hexadecimal values (since 16^2 = 256).
• RGB numerical values have nothing to do with complementary colors.

• HSL is an initialism representing Hue, Saturation, & Luminosity where
• Hue is the color as measured between 0° and 360° on the color wheel (with 0° representing red).
• Saturation is the dullness vs brightness measured between 0% & 100% (with 0% = gray with no color and 100% = full saturation).
• Luminosity is the darkness vs lightness (with 0% = black and 100% = white).

• Different colors are complementary when saturation is kept constant.

Is there a linear relationship between the 0-255 scales used in the MS Office color box for Hue, Saturation, & Luminosity and the scales described above? In other words:
• is one tick on the H scale equivalent to 1.4118° (360°/255 = 1.4118)?
• is one tick on the S & L scales equivalent to 0.3922% (100/255 = 0.3922)?

What method/formula is used to convert between the two systems?

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

I wish to have a drawing that I can print out on two 8.5 x 11.0 inches and have them taped together to make one physical 8.5 x 22.0 inches. This drawing will be the basis for assembling an electrical wiring harness that will fit the project pre assembled and without a hassle.


The size of the end project is just fine at 8.5 x 22" but I wish to use the dimensional tool to illustrate in INCHES the various lengths. The actual length of the project is around 50 feet. I don't want a 50 foot blueprint obviously.How do I accomplish this so that the actual printout is the size I want BUT the dimensions show as inches or feet and inches or any unit that I know are representing inches?

My problem is trying to determine how to depict dimensions that are a great deal smaller than the actual printout will be. So, basically I need to know how to indicate to Corel the size of the drawing, the units I should use and really basic type questions. I obviously am far from proficient in Corel but simply do not have the time to learn Corel for this single mini project.

Please ask any questions you need to have answered for clarification.

paint sad face No More Paint?
With the news of MS Paint being killed "deprecated", I just had to express my feelings in the only appropriate way I could... I mean, it's certainly not a great image editor at all, but at least you could count on it being available on any Windows system. Even when I've had much better tools at hand, it was still a frequent go-to for really quick-and-dirty screen grab cropping and annotating.

How do you feel about this? Do you mourn the loss or feel it's long overdue?

LOL. I know, right? Paint 3D lacks a lot of the features that make Paint a quick & dirty photo/screenshot editor. Even worse, the Win 10 Photo Viewer and the built-in editor? No crop there, either. Wut the?

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?

Free Tool: Path Explorer

An intuitive utility to help find the CSS path to UI elements on a webpage. These paths are used frequently in a variety of front-end development and QA automation tasks.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

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

For example, this image...

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

Thanks.

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.

Is there an easy way without using the WWW to get background/foreground colors from the image itself that I am editing?

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?
