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,

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 ?

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.

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.

I had installed on my computer Picture It! publishing that had an option to cut out areas of pictures. I could then paste them in other pictures. I got DSL with MSN Premium and the MSN premium automatically installed picture it Express version 9 which no longer has that option. The new Picture it replaced the "Picture it! Publishing". I tried to find an upgrade for the Picture it! Publishing that has that option but can't seem to find any that is sold any longer. Could you find out if Microsoft has any version of Picture it! with that option that will work with my system?

hello all
I am a complete novice helping my dad who is an even completer novice, with his new computer with preloaded Microsoft Works. We tried all day to 'import' a picture from outside of Works, into a page of text, but it just keeps showing up as an open-topped box with just the very bottom of the image in it.
tried importing different types of image files (psd, tiff, jpeg) from all different locations, nothing makes any difference.
tried expanding/moving the topless box, makes no difference either, except that if we shrank the width of the box to a quarter of its size, a little bit more of the bottom of the pic would appear.

You could network the two computers and then move the files...you could remove the hard drive from the old and attach it to the new and move the files...there are other ways but these seem the two easiest to me.If the pictures are in My Documents...you will probably also need to take ownership of the folders there, if you move the hard drive to the new system.How to take ownership of a file or folder in Windows XP - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308421 Louis
