Q: Digital Photos

I need to know of if anyone can recommend a good software program that I could use to put my photos I have saved on my desktop to a cd. I have tried Nero but can't get the cd to work after I have saved them to the cd. Or maybe I am not doing it right. I just want to get all these pictures off my desktop but still keep them for me to look at again.

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.)

A: Digital Photos

Nero will do it fine. What version of nero do you have and what OS?
Could you just give a brief decription of the process you went through to try and burn them?

My sister has photos of me in my bridesmaid dress that she took with her camera. I saved them on my computer.
I am going out of town to see our family, and cannot take the computer, but want to show the pictures. I will have my camera.

I tried transferring the photos to my camera's memory card by changing their file names to the same type of name as the photos that were taken with my camera. They are displayed as DSCN0610, so I renamed the photos as DSCN0700 and so on. Then I put my memory card in the driver, (G drive) opened up the drive, opened the folder where the pictures from my camera were, and dragged the newly renamed photos into that folder.

I put the memory card back in my camera and hit the display button, and the message I am getting for the spots where those files are is "File contains no image data."

What did I do wrong? What do I do?

Information - My camera is a Nikon Coolpix.

I bought a Nikon Coolpix 750 digital camera at the weekend. It came with Piccolo 2 software and I also have Adobe Photoshop 6.0. Although I can edit and print photographs to A4 paper, I can not seem to print on the 6x4 photo papers I bought. I have tried to adjust the setup of the printer and I can change the type of paper used, however when I print the image is either too small or does not fit onto the paper properly. Have I misssed something straightforward or can anyone help with this?
 

A:Digital Photos

Phil
Welcome to TSG!
I am not familiar with the Piccolo software but most graphic programs express size in Pixel width and height. If I want a specific size of picture to print then I do a conversion to inches once I know what PPI I am going to print with abd convert the pic to tht size.
For instance:
If you have a Pic that is 1500W x 1200H and your printer prints at 300PPI then the inch size of the pic equals....
1500 Divided by 300 = 5 Inches Width
1200 Divided by 300 = 4 Inches Height

For a 6" X 4" just multiply....

6 x 300 = 1800 pixels Width
4 x 300 = 1200 pixels Height

This procedure can get you close to the mark but is never perfect since there are other factors at play with pixel sizing.

Here is a link that will help you further.

Hi guys!

I have a few photos in JPEG format that I took from my digital camera. The problem with them is that whenever I view the same in Thumbnail mode, it displays the image properly but when I try to open the file, only a part of the image is displayed and the rest is all corrupted.

Why is this happening and what can be done to resolve the same. This problem is not with all pictures taken from the digital camera.

Thank you.
 

A:Problem with digital photos???

If you look in the folder with the photos you will probably see a thumbs.db file. That is a database file with your thumbnails. That you can see good thumbnails doesn’t necessarily mean the image file is OK. Quite often the camera puts thumbnails in the EXIF as well.

I have no idea why files are getting corrupted. It seems to be happening a lot to people and I don’t see a common thread in the causes. Once they are corrupted like that they are hard to get back. There is JPG repair software, but it isn’t free and doesn’t seem to work that often unless just the header is corrupted. That doesn’t seem to be the case if the file opens and part of it is corrupted.

If you are using a program to download your images I would try bypassing the program and get the images directly from the camera or card reader.

On one of our computers, 110 digital photos were downloaded from a 1 gb flash drive. They were put in the "My Pictures" folder. They ended up in "My Documents" as single entries, as well as many of them as single icons on the desktop. We can't seem to get them deleted from the desktop, nor singularly in "My Documents". If we get them in the Recycle Bin and then empty it, the icons on the desktop come back as well as he single files in "My Documents". We have done this numerous time, but they all come backWhat has happened? How can the situation be solved? Any help will be appreciated.
 

A:Multipying digital photos!

I had a problem fairly similar to this some years back and could only fix it by putting the flash card back in again and then deleting them from the folder/desktop.
Just why the flashcard being in place made the difference I have no idea.
I wonder if you could successfully transfer them back to the flashcard - that might work?
If you right click on one of the pics and select "properties" are they "read only"
Sometimes this makes things a bit more difficult to mess about with with though I doubt this would be the problem!

recently i did print screen thing to take pictures of my deasktop. well my friend had her baby on her webcam and i wanted to get pics of the baby and this was the simplest way to do it. i was wondering how or if i can somehow edit these pictures, i can open them with paint or and other apps, but none can edit them like i want, i dl a program called Gimp, its for pictures but its kinda confusing. lol
all i want is to clear the images up, enlarge them a bit, and get rid of the graininess they all have.
can anyone give me a hand or a program to try?
 

A:Editing Digital Photos

I don't think you will be satisfied with the results from any photo editing software. There is no sure way to decrease the graininess since that is most likely how the web cam sent the original images. Enlarging the photos will also enlarge the graininess.

If you want large clear pictures of the baby, you may need to ask your friend to take pictures with a much higher resolution (5 Mega Pixels or more) and then e-mail the picture files to you (assuming your e-mail service will support receiving messages with large attachments).

Hi all,

This is probably a simple question, but...

We've just bought a new digital camera (Jenoptik JD C2.1 LCD) and took around 160 photos whilst on holiday. I have a CD Burner (HP 8100) and using the software provided (HP CD-Writer Plus) tried to burn a CD that we can put in the DVD player/another PC and bore people with holiday snaps..

I created a data copy of the photos to CD for back up, so I know the burner works (except I can't read it on any other PC ) but I just can't get it to burn the DVD compatible version. I dl'd some software (Apollo Versatile Burner), to see if that would work.. but I can't seem to make it burn..

Could someone recommend an easy to use program (free) so that I can bore people as soon as possible.

Preferably I would like it so that I can just drag/drop the images to the software, and click the BURN icon. (I bet it's not that easy, is it?)

I don't want any flashy transition formats, I just want to scroll through the pictures one at a time using the DVD remote control.

Further info...

W98
60Gb HD
786Mb Ram
ASPI 4.6 (whatever that is)
HP 8100 burner (and a big box of TDK CD-Rs)
All images in one folder, in JPG format
Based in the UK so PAL is the format required

Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I'll return the favour on the security forums, if you want..

Cheers

Hi Everyone,
Im sure this has been asked before and is a topic that I have been trying to understand for a while.

I own a Canon S3 IS digital camera, that is great (all problems I think are user error) and I am trying to create a brochure to be professionally printed.

Now I keep getting told by all the printers I speak to that any photos I need to include in the document need to be 300dpi, but my camera only seems to shoot 72dpi.

My next problem is that everwhere I go people tell me that incresing the dpi of a photo is impossible (or they use some extremely strange mathematical way of doing it)

The photos are taken at 2816 x 2112 resolution and only need to be printed at thumbnail size so the size can be reduced.

Doies anyone know of any good tutorials or ways in which I can achieve this? (I have access to both Corel Photo and Adobe Photoshop)

It would be most appreciated!

My problem is that when I go to print photos, my printer prints out weird colours - very much like sepia but with some other colours here and there. The colour bears no resemblance to the original!

You need a media card reader which a lot of new PC's come with. You can also buy a multi-card reader that plugs in to your USB port. That may not allow you to "undelete: however. A memory card is not the same as a hard drive especially if you have used the memory card for anything else since.

Hi

I use a Canon Digital IXUS 8501S camera which works fine, and until recently Zoombrowser EX, the program that I use to import photos onto my PC (running Windows XP) was running fine too.

However, now when I connect the camera to my PC, although I can hear my computer recognising that the camera is there (it makes a noise when it finds new hardware), it no longer brings up the little window that used to appear automatically that allowed me to upload pictures.

When I manually go into Zoombrowser and click 'Connect to Camera' nothing happens at all - no error message, just no action. As far as I can remember, nothing significant's changed in my PC since a few months ago when I last tried this and everything worked fine.

Any suggestions?

Hi,
Our church has a large collection of photos, negatives, slides, etc. that it wants to pass on to future generations. We are considering scanning them all and storing them digitally. What problems do you foresee several generations down the line?

If a concerted effort is made through the years to regularly update software and hardware to continue to have access to these images, is it likely to succeed?

For example, are there codecs in the early versions of Photoshop or aspects of the program that are not there now or not supported that would mean photos scanned on the early version would be less good (color, clarity, range, etc.) if accessed on today's Photoshop?

I welcome hearing your thoughts concerns. Thanks. Duncan

Hi everyone,
I bought an HP Pavilion G6 (AMD-A6- 4400m APU Radeon 7520 integrated graphics, 4gb ram, Win 8 back in 2014. I had upgraded to 8.1 and installed 4 more gb ram and it was running really smoothly since) Until recently I haven't had any issues with it. I primarily use it to for transfering photos from my Canon camera (7D dslr) to my laptop. Everything was fine for months until last week. Suddenly the laptop just started running VERY slow no matter what I was doing. It even took forever to load my browser, and open a simple document. I ran an anti-virus scan ( Kasperky 2015) and ran Malwarebytes. Both came back with no issues. I ran HP's installed diagnostic to check the processor and memory. Again all was ok. I also tried to boot into diagnostic mode and still it ran slow. I updated my drivers, did a rootkit scan, and registry diagnostic. Finally I got fed up so I reset it back to factory settings which of course put win 8 back on. I figured any os or software issues would be taken care of. No, it still runs very slow, and I am now unable to upgrade to 8.1 or of course 10. I haven't installed any programs or apps that didn't come with 8, but did install all updates. I'd think that it would essentially be a brand new laptop and run like it did when I bought it ( perhaps faster since it now has 8gb ram). I'm at a point where I'm about to smash the thing if I can't get this issue resolved. Please help!!
