Hotmail Picture Editing and Attaching Tool

Q: Hotmail Picture Editing and Attaching Tool


I've searched for hours looking for a solution to my problem with no luck so I thought i'd try here...

When trying to attach photos to an outgoing email in Hotmail using the Picture Editing and Attaching Tool no photos appear in the folder I select in the explorer window.

I have all my windows folders down the left hand side. When I highlight a folder I know contains pictures I get the message 'No photos in this folder.'

My laptop computer is brand new and has windows XP home edition included together with service pack 2. I downloaded the photo tool without any problems onto my computer. All other aspects of hotmail work OK except the photo tool which used to work on my old computer.

What am I doing wrong?

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance....

Preferred Solution: Hotmail Picture Editing and Attaching Tool

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.)


This confusing OS, WIN 8, has gathered so much of my stuff together I have no idea where it is and what it is doing.

While working in my Hotmail account, I am unable to "attach files". the "attach files" functions on Hotmail doesn't work and I guess it's the OS that is causing this problem.

Any thoughts?

im running internet explorer on windows 7, 64 bit.

A:attaching and viewing images on hotmail

What your post is missing is the operating system and the email client or web browser you are using for Hotmail. Someone will probably have some suggestions if you tell us those.

A:Solved: Problem Attaching Excel to Hotmail

I just tested sending an .xls attachment via Hotmail and had no problem. I use web mail and browser Firefox.

Think that you should identify your browser if using web mail, else the email client and OS. And maybe your anti-virus application is also important.

When I create a new mail with hotmail and when I click on "attachements", to attach a file, 2 folders are missing. I see them in windows explorer but not anymore in the dialog box "choose files to upload". If I rename them in windows explorer, they appear, even if I just change one letter in the name, for example, "Mes numérisations" folder does not appear anymore and if I rename it to "Mes numérisationss adding a "s" at the end, it appears. I tried attaching files to google mail and to facebook, to test other situations but I have exactly the same result. Could you help Techguys ? I will appreciate very much any help.

Welcome to TSG.
You could take the graphic, and paste it to MS Paint. You would need to paint in where the text is now, and then insert a text box with your own text. It is doable, and possible to make it look good, but can also be time consuming.

Can someone please advise what software would be good to use to do the following (I would like to avoid PhotoShop for this - Explanation below):
Re-Size Image
Increase/Decrease Lighting
Cut Parts of Images

The reason i ask is some people in our company are after 3 PhotoShop licenses to do the above but the cost seems a little excessive for what i believe to be small changes to an image. Fair enough if they are designing all day but they just want to edit a few images.

Something free or of a lower cost than PhotoShop.
Any ideas?


A:Picture Editing Software Idea's


cost? ?0.00

it can
adjust brightness/contrast
...and loads more

i would use it all the time if i wasn't lucky enough to use photoshop.

Hi Guys,

Just looking for a 2nd opinion on this one.

Problem: I have a user who opens windows explorer, navigates to a picture folder (Pictures in this folder are displayed in thumbnail large icons), from their she opens them up, they open up in microsoft office 2010 picture viewer and then crops/edits them. Goes to save as and receives this error: The file *NAME OF FILE* is open in another program. close the file that the program and then try saving again. Try again, Cancel, Skip.

Clicking try again 3 times usually allows her to save.

What I think may be happening is the explorer window in thumbnail mode is showing the previews and acting as a seperate program in a way? But as clicking try again usually works after several times is the applciation used to display the thumbnails still hooked in memory doing something for a few seconds and then once the process is finished the try again button eventually works?

Does this kind of make sense?

My friend at work started Paint to work with a picture, but now every picture he opens goes automatically to Paint. He doesn't remember what he did and wants to use Paint only when he needs it for something specific.

I Exited from Paint and could open a JPEG in Picture & Fax Viewer (downloaded from his camera so not imported in Paint), but when I tried to Edit the picture, it went to Paint instead of the Edit function in Picture and Fax Viewer

We don't have Admin rights so can't go into MS Config to deselect it from auto starting, altho I'm not sure that's what's causing the problem. I don't believe he somehow set it up to Auto Run on startup without Admin rights. He's restarted several times since he did this and it still happens.

I also tried to go into My Documents / All Users / Startup but was blocked from going any further without those Admin rights.

Appreciate any expert advice!​

A:How to stop Paint from opening when editing a picture?

OK, making a little progress.

Didn't realize it before, but Pict & Fax Viewer doesn't have a default image editor, therefore when trying to Edit the picture automatically opens in Paint.

What we need to do is get back to having the picture open with Office Picture Manager where there IS an edit function.

However, when right clicking on a picture and go to Open With, the option to open with Picture Manager doesn't appear.
I checked and the program is still in his computer.

I believe it used to be his default picture viewer, but how can we restore Picture Manager as the default viewer if it doesn't
even show in the Open With tab and we don't have admin rights?

Thank You

A:Office 2010 Picture Editing Question

Office 2010 doesnt Scan , a Scanner does.
Office 2010 doesnt Edit Pictures , A seperate Program will , eg: Photoshop , MS Paint , Corel , Gimp.
Opening any file to edit , once done you should select " Save As "  and rename it , then the Original would stay intact / or as it was.
If you just select "Save" it will Prompt you to Overwrite the original = y/n.
You have to be more clearer what your friend is trying to do , or yourself in explaining the actual problem your having , or what you need to achieve.

I am using Office 97, specifically Word. In class, we were paired up and given a Word document to review and edit. We use the Reviewing Toolbar (View-Toolbars-Reviewing), to track changes and comments that the two of us have made. We need to bring in copies of the document after my revisions, after my partners revisions, and a final copy. Everything is fine, except for the final copy. I can't seem to figure out how to remove all the highlights on the document. I have accepted or declined all changes. Now if I print out a copy, the changes are highlighted.

Any clues?



A:Word 97 Editing tool

After you've accepted / rejected all changes, have you saved the 'version'? It sounds like the page you're previewing is not the final version, but an earlier one.
Check File, Versions and make sure you have a saved 'version' that *should* appear correctly in Print Preview it.

I am running Windows XP and recently replaced my hard drive after a crash. I re-installed Olympus Master Plus, together with associated Quicktime software.

When I try to use the "edit" function (for correcting red eye, etc) I am getting the following error message:

Plug in could not be executed

I contacted Olympus and they advised me to carry out the following:

Update Quicktime which runs in the background even though it was a photo I was trying to edit and not video - I have the most up to date version.

System Restore to when the programme was functioning correctly - this was not possible as a new hard drive had been installed.

Uninstall and re-install Quicktime - I did this but editing feature still didn't work.

Deactivate my antivirus software when editing the image - this made no difference and I hadn't had to in the past to make it work OK.

Just wondering if anybody has any other ideas.

Any help would be gratefully received. Many thanks in advance.

I still use old PhotoDeluxe 2.0 while running Classic on my iBook for certain images; it is just faster for some stuff I do - I do have advanced digital editing software that I use on OS X. I've run into a glitch with PhotoDeluxe; the Brush and Eraser tools I use for changing colors of certain backgrounds in a photo or erasing parts of photos has gone "transparent." It takes several swipes over an area to erase a mark or to change its color to another color with those tools. It just started doing this while I was in the middle of editing images. The Color Change tool hasn't been affected. I've re-loaded the software and that hasn't helped. I've checked Preferences but nothing is wrong there, apparently. Some setting had to have been changed and I just don't know how I did it. If anyone can help, that would be great. Thanks.
