Regular picture to pencil picture

Q: Regular picture to pencil picture

Hello, How can I convert a regular picture into a pencil picture. My husband use a Photoshop CS but I don't want to ask him because is a surprise for him.

Thank you

Preferred Solution: Regular picture to pencil picture

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 found this BUG in Micrososft Word 2007, that I consider to be a SERIOUS ISSUE for Microsoft Office Suite.

If you copy an image from a website and paste in the Word file, the image pastes successfully the first time,
but as you go on & paste other images from the site,
the first image is repeated over and over again, in place of other images (which have the same dimensions).
All other text data remain same, the image titles remain same, but only the image is repeated over and over

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
I would not advise pasting images in doc files like that,
I would use ms Paint to paste or save picture as
I would really recommend using the windows snipping tool to get the images that way no bugs are being transferred to the machine or programs,
Then use the Insert image option in word...
It's just a safer way to do an operation,

Hi all,

Super bizarre.

So I woke up this mornind to login into my PC and see that my profile pic is changed back to the previous one. I have not any changes myself.

skype is linked to microsoft account. (skype had my old picture)

other option is that someone logged into my outlook and chaged profile picture then it got synced...

I cannot find any information on why or how picture would revert. ( even more so on a specific date )

any ideas or leads ?

A:login profile picture revert back to previous picture

Hello newbiew, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Since you Microsoft account is synced by default, then it most likely automatically changed back after syncing.

If you wanted to have the same user account picture for all devices, then changing it for everything should help.

If you only wanted to change it on this PC, then you could turn off syncing for Appearance under "Personalization settings" using the tutorial below.

I have an HDMI cord running from my laptop to my desktop computer. I have the laptop outputting audio through the HDMI cord perfectly fine. However, my desktop will not relay the audio through the built-in speakers unless I have the HP Picture in Picture software open on the selected HDMI Input. I was wondering if there was a way I am able to bypass using the HP Picture in Picture software. The HDMI Inputs do not show up in the 'Sound' window through the Control Panel in either the Playback or Recording tabs. Thank you!- Bubbyfong

It turns out that if I download a picture file to the photo app in 8.1, without putting it in a particular pre-existing folder, the file goes into the general area of the app displayed alongside several other non-related pictures. Okay, no problem. But for the life of me, I can't figure out how to then move a single image file into one of the pre-existing folders I had created at an earlier time. If your suggestion is to open both the folder and the picture file side by side on the screen and then click and drag, I have no idea how to do that. Is there no way to right-click the image and find a way to select "move to", or something along those lines; or is there a pull-down menu that I can't find with the app open that contains a command to "move to"?
Any suggestions?
Thanks so much,
San Francisco

A:How to move a picture file on 8.1 to a picture folder...

Well, you have many options. What you are looking for is this:

Context Menu - Add Copy To Folder and Move To Folder - Windows 7 Help Forums

But you can just copy the pics and paste them into the folder you like.

The side by side is easy too. Just open the source folder and press WIN + Right arrow. Then open the target folder and press WIN + left arrow, Now you can drag and drop from one folder to the other.

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.

I know the rules forbid P2P talk, but, i kind of got worried when i saw this picture i had downloaded by accident. Is there anyway this jpg actually submitted anything? MY virus protection didnt catch anything...

The site at the bottom of the picture is a site that fights against child porn... so.. yeah... im kinda worried.

A:Is it possible for this picture to do what it says it did?

Could it be a left over april fool's joke? A few sites pull stunts like that. A jpeg itself can't submit something unless it was a virus in a form which none of those came out even after the patch to protect against that from what I know. What would have happened is the site you logged onto would pull your IP address and then record that, they would then bring it to a judge or your ISP and try to get a subpoena and your real name/address, then they would hit you with an indictment for whatever you did.

I need help before I go insane. I have Vista Ultimate 64 bit and Media Center is giving me so many problems. In media Center I am trying to watch Live TV but it looks bad. Downloaded Videos work fine and so do DVD's. But when I go to live tv thats where the problem is. Video is choppy it shows only in 4:3 aspect ratio and not 16:9 aspect ratio. The Actual Media Center is full screen just not the tv picture. I was using A Visiontek 550MCE TV card but that is only analog so I upgraded to a Gateway ASUS PCIe ATSC/QAM/NTSC TV Tuner Card and still the same problems. And no digitlal signal. I have RCN cable. In the bedroom I have a set top box but in the living room it just goes strait to the TV. Connected directly to the tv it works great I get HD channels and all(No payper view). I have the following set up:
Motherboard: Asus M3A32-MVP Deluxe/WiFi-AP
Processor: AMD Phenom X4 Quad-Core 9600
Memory: G.SKILL DDR2 PC2 8500 4GB kit
Video card: MSI RX3870-T2D512E OC
Tv Card: Gateway ASUS PCIe ATSC/QAM/NTSC TV Tuner Card
Old Tv Card: Visiontek 550MCE

I was even thinking about using a differnt program like beyond Tv. Please any help would be great.

A:Bad picture

The 4:3 ratio may be dependent on whats being broadcast. Also have you set your monitor/TV in MC settings to 16:9?

Choppy playback is usually either a) poor reception b) bad codec c) dodgy video driver.

Have you installed any codec packs? Tried a few different video drivers?

This problem just occurred recently for no apparent reason. I am using Windows XP Pro-SP2. I use IE6 and Avant back and forth with IE settings exported to Avant. I am getting the dreaded RED X in both browsers apparently only in GIF. Jpeg seems to be fine. This is a list of the steps I have taken so far. 1) Ensured default setting in IE privacy 2) Updated my Java and checked 'Use my Browser settings' button 3) Cleaned out temp files 4) Checked 'Show Pictures' in Advanced IE 5) Used every scanner in my system without detecting anything unusual. 6) Tried to link to 'Toggle Image' in Avant but no link there( in fact no double-arrow links at all) 7) Went to IE6, found the link to 'Toggle Image', clicked on-nothing happened.
SO I HAVE TARGETED 'Toggle Image' as a possible culprit. Searched everywhere to try to download this feature without success. Used Windows internal search and found 'Toggle Image' in Documents and Settings as a shortcut. Also located 'Toggle Image' in prefetch and that's it.
The questions- Is it Toggle Image causing my problem or something else? If Toggle Image is removed will this restore the picture viewing function. If not can I repair or reload Toggle Image to my computer so it can be controlled? What the heck is Toggle Image and what function does it really perform if it is recommended to shut it off?

I have seen this problem with AGP cards that have to be reset sometimes. Since your video is on board, it could have been just static build up with your monitor. Remember these monitors are capable of sometimes 20,000 volts coming from the flyback so sometimes this power can leak to certain ground frames on the chassis. I know this sounds very strange but believe me it can happen!

If you select the User Panel tab at main forum screen and select the user options tab, at the bottom you will see how you can attach an Avatar.
The animated Avatars are actually what are called animated gif images and can be found at many sites throughout the Internet.
Most animated gifs have to be downsized to fit the restrictions of the Avatar. 50x50 pixels and no more then 20KB in size.

If you find an animated Gif you would like to use as an Avatar there are many here that will help scale it down if it can be and still hold its integrity.
