Unable to edit pictures with Picture Manager

Postby U3R1cmJpbg » Sun, 10 Jul 2005 01:11:01 GMT

We have users that are unable to modify pictures with the Picture Manager.  
They are in the Power Users group and have full control of the directory in 
which they are working.  They can modify and work on any other file with 
Office (i.e. doc files, power point files) with no problems whatsoever in the 
same directory.

If I move the user into the Administrators group, they can the edit the 
pictures without any problem.

Is there a permission issue I am missing?  

Thank you

IIRC, there were some reports of this issue when the computer name and 
user name were the same.

Please post all follow-up questions to the newsgroup. Requests for 
assistance by email can not be acknowledged.

1.picture manager, edit pictures go blank

2.cannot edit pictures in picture manager without local admin ri


Well who would have known that to be an issue above all else!.... Certainly 
a goofup there, any way to fix that in a later SP or something?  

I had tested this on a pc of one of our users, and of course computer name + 
computer user = no Picture Manger, then changed the computer and BAM it works 
like it should.

now i'll have to change a couple more and actually get them to use it.  More 

Thanks for letting us know! and hope others can get around this strange issue.

3.cannot edit pictures in any way with MS Office Picture Manager - W

I cannot perform any edits of any pictures in any location - the software 
only displays the picture

4.I can't edit pictures in Picture Manager

I'm trying to compress some pictures for a web page or email. The pictures 
are listed under my picture shortcuts. When I try compressing a picture and 
hit "OK", nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?

5.Pictures edited by Picture Manager do not open

I edited around 200 JPG photos with Picture Manager (color, brightness, etc) 
within a folder.  After finishing I clicked on 'save all' under File.  I also 
renamed the files.  After this none of the files can be seen as photos.  
Under Windows Explorer Thumbnails I only get an icon.  Under Filmstrip and 
Windows Picture & Fax viewer it states "no preview available"  The files only 
generate a box with an X under Picture Manager.  Under explorer 'details' it 
shows them to be JPEG files and size (around 350KB each), and date last 
modified.  Unlike photos in other folders which do display well, under 
details it does not give the 'dimension' information.  In other folders these 
are 1600 x 1200.  Can these 200 pictures be salvaged? Were they corrupted by 
Picture Manager and lost forever?
