Image Q

Windows XP


  • 1. JPEG question
    I have a couple of imaging tools on my Windows XP system (Paint, PictureIt, PhotoPlus, Adobe Photoshop Album). Out of all these, it is Paint that achieves the best JPEG compression. Paint's JPEGs are sometimes 10 times smaller that PhotoPlus' even though I'm compressing the same image using identical parameters (image size, number of colours, etc). How is this possible? When I look at the resulting images, the 5MB JPEG (PhotoPlus) and the 500K JPEG (Paint) are indistinguishable.
  • 2. camera wizard and my computer
    After reading many posts on camera and scanner wizard not working I thought I could fix the problem. Not so. I do not have real player 10 installed (real player 8) My Computer section is also very slow in loading now. I have SP 2. USB's are working for other devices. The Camera is a Canon A95 and I went to their website and tried their fix of a wia driver. no luck. Cant see the camera on my computer either. Defraged hard drive just for giggles. Very new computer. HP laptop 3.2ghz 1.5 mg ram 80 gb HD. I uninstalled the canon software. I tried my other camcorder sony and it wasnt recognized either. Seems to be something else than the normal issues. Help
  • 3. My Documents/ My pictures in Xp home
    Hi I just purchased a new pc with Xp home edition. I cannot see the pictures that I have saved in my pictures. When I click on them, I get asked what program I want to use to open them . I click on a program and the pictures open. But I am used to seeing my pictures in the actual file. There is a box to click on in the bottom of the choices of programs and it says use this program to open pictures all the time, but I can't click on it, it is greyed out. Please help frustrated in Vancouver -- Gayle

There's a 60 day trial version of Digital Image
that would easily accomplish your task:

Microsoft Digital Image
Starter Edition 2006
(this offer is no longer being
promoted but I'm relatively sure
you can still download it and
run it for 60 days)

If you prefer a free program...FastStone
Image Viewer has a great crop tool.

FastStone Image Viewer

And there are some free programs at
the following link:

Free Serif Software

Hello Rick:

How about using Microsoft Word, or some other word processor?  It's easy to 
make great flyers and posters!  Even brochures!

Good Luck!

Cordially yours,

3.'Resend' and 'Newsgroup Message Management' Qs?

1.    Can I 'Resend' an email?  Rather then spending minutes on end 
reformatting a 'Sent' message to make it appear unsent or Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V'ing 
its content into a 'New' email is there another secret button/option to set 
that will allow one to (after editing or correcting whatever went wrong the 
first time) just 'Resend' it--like Thunderbird offers?

2.    In Newsgroup messages is there any way to delete message headers and 
bodies that one is not interested in so that only most recent messages and 
ones one is tracking show in the title pane?  This feature Agent handles 

With Vista I was hoping I could stick with the generic IE and Windows Mail

4.KDE newbie Qs

I just installed KDE for my kids.  I have two questions concerning the
setup and configuration:

1.  Where are the user menus kept?  The user directories are mounted via
NFS, so the menus should stay the same no matter where the user is
logging in from.  Yet the menus seem to be stored on the local machine

2.  I have RedHat Fedora Core installed.  How do I get the 'standard'
icons that ship with kde?  I really don't like the RedHat icons much.  Is
there a set of RPMs anywhere with the vanilla version of KDE?



5.Qs on Integrated Windows Authentication

Newbie here, I just brought up my test WSS server and created a site.  I've
created a few folders and uploaded documents to them.  When I load up my WSS
site in IE *on the server*, I have transparent acces to the site as well as
the few shared documents on it.  When I access the same WSS site using IE
from my workstation (sitting next to the server and plugged into the same
switch BTW), I get prompted for my login.  I get prompted for my login every
time I access each document.  I'm using the same account to log into my
workstation and my WSS server.  Why am I continually getting prompted for
login info?

Thanks and Regards,
