Q: picture format change

Hi there

I am wanting to transfer I photo I have onto canvas. I scanned the picture and saved it onto my computer where it automatically saved it as a pdf file with no option to change it. Now when I went to download it onto the website that will be making the canvas print it will not allow any pdf files. Is there anyway to change the format so I can get my canvas? cheers

Preferred Solution: picture format change

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have my files in firefox format..If i want to change the format for only my files without effecting some other files which are in same firefox format...what i need to do?

A:how to change files from firefox format to another format

The simple and obvious answer is to just change the files that you want changed and leave the others alone. But you must have something more in mind.

What is "firefox format"? To what format do you want to change? Using what tool, application or method?

I have tried to find an answer to this but cannot. Lately, I noticed my User Account Picture was not the picture I had selected. In addition, the Background Picture for my Windows 7 Home Premium edition log on screen was changed. This happened after running a program that is for exams at school which reboots your computer into a safe mode where the only program available is a rudimentary word processor.

I contacted the company that makes that software, Examsoft, and they told me how to get my default logon picture for my Windows Logon background back.

To address the User Account picture, I went into Control Panel > User Accounts and attempted to "change picture". This is not an option, however, for my administrator user account. It is an option for my guest account. I tried cloning my account without the bad .dat files, but that didn't work either as the new account I had created, also an administrator account, did not display a "change picture" option in control panel either.

I ran sfc /scannow, and it found no errors.

I am not sure what to do. Has anyone encountered this? Can you please help me?

Attached is a screen shot:

Thank You.

Greetings, I have a Photosmart R967 (part number L2428a). The camera saves pictures to the SD card with the name "HPIM####.JPG". So my first picture was HPIM0001.JPG, then HPIM0002.JPG, etc. My 2 GB card is now full. If I buy a new card, will the camera keep naming the files where it left off (HPIM0621.JPG)? Or will start start back at HPIM0001.JPG? Thanks,Shane.

A:Picture name format

Hello Shanester, That's a good question. Digital cameras all have a small portion of non-volatile memory that keeps track of what file number was last used. If it didnt, you wouldnt know how much the camera has been used. But when it reaches its numbering limit, it will start over again.When you replace the SD card, the camera will continue where it previously left off on file naming. This is for all digital cameras and the R967 shouldn't be any different than the others. TIP:  I keep my images uploaded to the computer as I shoot them ASAP.  I put them grouped in separate folders based on Subject, Event or Date. This way, the file name scheme for the next folder group is irrelevant. Also, if I lose the card or whatever, the images are already backed up. Hope it helps.

I have a CD of pictures that are in a .tiff format. Apparently, when they were scanned, by default, they were saved as tiffs.
I need them all in Jpeg form. I know how to go in and change each picture to a Jpeg but is there a way to change them all at one time instead of one by one. I have many pictures in this format so any shortcut's would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thank you in advance!

A:Solved: changing picture format all at once?

If you don’t already have it on your computer download and install the free Irfanview from www.irfanview.com

Open an image from a folder you want to convert and hit the b key or File > Batch Conversion. “Add All” and make sure JPG is the output. Select where you want them to go and “Start”.

I have a 1GB XD Picture Card but when i try to format it i can only set the capacity to 999mb.

I didn't notice that until it had completed formatting but by then it is too late.

I now have a 999mb XD Picture Card.

Does anyone know how i can get back my 25mb?


A:Solved: Format 1GB XD Picture Card

The card size is likely expressed in "Decimal" GB, Windows reports in "Binary" GB.

Same applies to hard drives, I assume all flash drives and camera cards will be similar, based on a card I have just tried now, the difference is a factor of about 1.024 between reported and labelled.

A megabyte is 1,000 bytes in Decimal, but 1,024 Bytes in Binary.

I have stored some digital pictures on my hard drive using Irfanview. When I attempt to bring them up some appear as .qvs files and along with them I get a warning message that this file format is not recognized. What causes this? My original pictures were in .jpg format.

A:Digital Picture .qvs format unrecognized!

The QVS files are used internally by the Casio camera as "management files" and will have no purpose when downloaded images are transferred to the HDD.

Therefore trying to open them is pointless, they are not images.

I literally just joined this website, so, ah, pardon me if I make some sort of stupid mistake in the attachment of a screenshot. I also apologize if this has already been asked/answered in another thread.
As you should be able to see (I hope), my PowerPoint 2007 won't allow me to change the background of the slides to an image from my computer; I haven't had this issue before, so I don't know what went wrong this time around. The Fill option still works, and I can still use the pre-loaded themes and such--it's really just that one thing that doesn't work, but I need it for a project.
Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Usually my pictures are too large to be practical for sending in email. So I have been opening using Paint, then saving to another location and using the saved file in the second location to attach to my emai. The Paint program usually saves it in less than half the size, which makes it a lot easier to send as an email attachment.

My problem: I was requested recently to resend a file in .tif format, rather than the usual jpg. But for some reason saving in .tif with Paint actually had the effect of more than doubling the size of the file!

Optimally I would like to cut the size of the file (which is in jpg by the way) from about 14 MB to about 1 MB or even less in .tif format.

Sys info below.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hello everyone, so to get right to it, i want to change the main window bars (Just add a picture to them) so they are not so boring, i have used themes before so know it is possible, but unsure of how to change this single item. May be that i will have to get an entire theme again but just hoping there is a better way. so to be clear here is what i mean, on my Chrome (I have a chrome theme installed) you see the tree's on the bars, then you see my explorer frame and you see nothing but the plain old boring bar. So my question to you is, how would i go about doing this? Hope i have provided enough info, if not just ask what it is you want to know.

A:How to change the window picture.

It is quite easy actually...
There are to options, one is very easy the other is hard and complicated:
1. Go to Deviantart.com (Browsing Windows 7 Utilities on deviantART) and download the them you like the most.

2. Create your own custom theme. This is a lot harder because you need various programs to do that and same of the components that come with the deviantart themes to apply them like Universal them patcher etc. etc.

On my Windows 7 Ultimate (32-bit) machine I can't change my user account picture. I can't even change to one of the built-in pictures. My 64-bit machine doesn't have this problem.
When I attmpt to change the picture I'm told it isn't the right format. Again this applies to the built-in pictures as well as my jpeg photo. So I know the pictures are OK and can only guess the problem lies else where.
Both machines are members of a SBS 2011 domain.

Does anyone have any ideas?

A:Win 7 won't allow me to change user picture

First try sfc/scannow to see if Windows can repair any damaged or corrupted system files.

If that doesn't work, try a repair install. If you do it correctly, you shouldn't lose any data.

I've been using Picture password, and I tried to change the picture today. When I clicked "choose picture" in Picture Password menu, it showed this message:

"There was a failure during the enrolment process. Please try again later."

The current picture password was still available, but I could not change it. I tried removing(that I regret) the picture password and to set a new one, but it showed the same message. Now I cannot use picture password. I tested with new accounts, local and ms both, but those didn't work.

What I don't understand is that I'd been using picture password(and was still able to log on with picture password before I removed it) without any problem, but suddenly it became corrupted or something. Refreshing is never an option, how can I solve this?

A:Cannot change/create Picture Password.

Likeliest Solution is the Least Wanted Solution
Sadly, the solution that has worked for those lucky enough to find a solution has been to use Windows 8's "System Refresh" feature, which saves your documents, but rather unfortunately not much else - and restores the system files. You'd have to reinstall programs and other personalizations afterwards.

But hey, we're a tech site, so we don't give up so easily.

Many posts are popping up on tech boards, with users having the exact same picture password trouble that you are facing. Exactly the same. Many have given up, and are hoping that Microsoft will have a hotfix or an update that will fix things. Others have been experimenting with strategies for repairing the problem - and very few have been successful.

What usually doesn't work:
Creating new accounts. The theory for this generally unsuccessful try is that the users profile is somehow corrupted. It seems to me that if the users profiles were that corrupted - then the pins and alphanumeric passwords wouldn't work either ... and I've yet to see a post where the problem was solved with by creating a new user & then moving data from the old account over.

Trying different picture formats: The setup for the picture passwords is so straightforward, I haven't seen anyone yet whose problem was at all related to picture format. Most users experiencing the problem, in fact, simply had their picture password suddenly produce the "enrollment" ... Read more

For some unknown reason, I can't change my desktop picture. When I go into the Display Settings, everything in the Desktop tab is grayed out. I can still use the customize desktop button and the position drop-box, but I can't acutally select an image.

Hey Guys,
I have pictures of the virus below. My bf didnt have a anti-virus software for months, I know, so stupid. Anyway his computer started running super slow our of nowhere, I have cleaned up his computer once before and it ran fast after clean install and I was able to delete windows.old folder with no problems, but this time it did not, it was still as slow even thought I deleted many unnecessary games/applications.

When you do a clean install, it saved all your stuff in windows.old folder. I went to C: drive to remove it, but as I tried to delete it (previous time it let me, this time it was locked) the screen went black with gray graphics and a couple smiley faces, see below picture (I was able to snap a pic with my phone):

So the windows.old folder looked like it was deleted because it dissapeared, I went to trash just to make sure and it was not there but it was not there so I went to folder options and unhid all the folders, and there it was on C:drive all hidden. I took ownership of all folders and started deleting them, it deleted everything except macromedia flash player folder (I think that is where the virus is).

I downloaded several anti virus scanning software including Microsoft Security Essentials, and Kavinsky (sorry dont remember exact name, but it top for windows). Neither of those detected it.

Anyway I gave up on it and went to bed, the next day I went back on computer and decided to retry deleting the folder, the windows.old folder ... Read more

Hi, I would like some image's Date Picture Taken changed, the method I am using now is change Date Picture Taken of one image at a time in Windows Photo Gallary, I have about 300 images, as you can see, I still have a long way to go.
Is there a faster way of changing Date Picture Taken? And I don't want all images have the same Date Picture Taken, it would be better if one image is just one second more than the previous ones.
For example, I would change one Date Picture Taken 00:01:00 and the next image should be 00:01:01 and than the next 00:01:02 and so on.
IS there a software that can do that? OR anything? PLEASE HELP!
