Picture Manager


Can someone please explain to me why, "some third-party programs [that] =
do not use the registry correctly" has anything to do with this issue?  =
I don't get it.  As far as I know if a file type is registered correctly =
(say gif) then the default data entry for that extension will determine =
where the open key resides.  In a default installation of Windows 2000 =
anyway the default data will be giffile.  So as long as the open key in =
giffile is correct there is no issue.

Now I know that some "third-party programs" will change this data entry. =
 Say Adobe Photoshop.  It will change it to say Adobe.Image.  But then =
Picture Manager ought to do the same thing and set the location in HKCR =
appropriately.  If it doesn't then the symptom of this article will =
result.  And that has nothing to do with "some third-party programs =
[that] do not use the registry correctly."

Unless of course due to the Windows Installer which can detect the =
application has broken due to a change in the file association.  But =
then that is an issue with Windows Installer NOT "some third-party =
programs [that] do not use the registry correctly."

Picture Manager - Picture Cut Off
6 replies , 9/27/2008, 10:09:01 PM
I am in great need of assistance. I uploaded pictures from my Sony camera to Picture Manager. I have never had this issue until now. I'm using Office 03 on Vista and have been for a couple month with no issues. I sent the pictures to someone who replied back saying 2 of the 3 pictures were cut off. I went into the saved area and 2 of the files have a gray bar at the bottom exactly the same size as the other cutting off the picture. I need the full picture and wanted to know if it's possible to get the original picture back as it's no longer on my camera.

Posted 6/11/09: Since, even after the nine MS Updates to my P/C on 6/10/09, this problem continues today, I will present this request for help again.

Has anyone gotten back to you? I thought it was a virus or spyware but my checker (MS OneCare) just spent over four hours checking EVER FILE on all drives and found nothing. Also, I thought it might have been caused by an MS Update. But after comparing outstanding updates with and without the problem (used Restore to eliminate the problem temporarily), I found no differences. -- Joe G Posted 5/29/09: "glnz" wrote: > I have a new problem -- if there are jpg's attached to an email that I've > opened in Outlook Express, and I double-click on the attached jpg's, MS > Picture Manager tries to open but immediately gives an error message that > says: > > "The path you specified is not valid or supported by Picture Manager. > Verify that the location is a valid Windows SharePoint Service Picture > library, that the folder exists, and that the path is correct, and try again." > > This is a new problem - didn't have this problem before!

Please help because restoring my P/C to an earlier time is tedious and the alternate of having to save Outlook Express jpg's to my harddrive so that MS Office Picture Manager will open them seems dangerious with regard to virus etc. exposure.

Copy/Paste picture Issue and Fix
2 replies , 7/13/2007, 11:13:08 AM
I have been experiencing an annoying problem and I was not sure if the problem was with Entourage 11.3.6, Mac OSX 10.4.10 or me. I do a lot of copy and pasting from web pages etc to email. My preferred technique is the old Mac OSX keystroke technique to hold down (Cmd-Shift-4), drag over desired area, then paste it into Entourage. This works some of the time; however, sometimes when I try to paste the clip Entourage does nothing but flash the Edit menu or paste in the previously selected clip. This has been very annoying. I thought the problem was the clipboard was not being properly cleared so thanks to one of the MVP's I have added an AppleScript a few months ago to my Entourage menu bar to Clear the Clipboard. FYI, he script is: tell application "System Events" to set the clipboard to "" The script solves the problem where that previously selected clip was being pasted; however, I was still having problems getting a newly selected clip to paste into Entourage. After a few failed attempts I would give up on the keystroke technique and resort to the SnapNDrag application. The SnapNDrag, as well as several other 3rd party applications, work correct. While preparing this message I just happened to check at http://www.danrodney.com/mac/index.html and may have found the problem. It was me! The keystroke to copy the screenshot to the clipboard instead of making a file is to use Cmd-Shift-Control-4. I just tried it and it works great. I probably knew about the Control key thing but forgot and hope this reminder to use Cmd-Shift-Control-4 helps someone else having the same problem. Old dogs can learn (or relearn) new tricks! aRKay

My mother got a new computer with Office 2007. She deleted some pictures from her My Pictures folder and they still remained in Picture Manager. Then we noticed some pictures in her My Pictres folder do not show up in Picture Manger. What gives? And which area is it that is used for a screensaver? That is how she knew something was off when pictures she deleted from My Pictures were still being shown in her screensaver (which is set to show slideshow from My Pictures) and we discovered the pictures were not in her My Pictures folder, but showed up in Picture Manager when we opened that up. Why aren't they connected? Thank you.

I have a friend who is teaching a G.I.S. concepts class to his son's fifth grade. My friend developed the class on his PC, but then found out the whole school uses Macs, and the process he developed is not working on Word for Mac.<br> <br> For the class, he wants to link to an online picture in the document, something easily done on a PC in Word by clicking Insert &gt; Picture &gt; From File, then in the "File Name" area, paste the URL to the internet picture, then click the down arrow beside Insert and choose Link to File. The picture is displayed in the document only if there is an active Internet connect, and it is stored as a link to the picture's url, not the picture itself.<br> <br> Is there a way to do this using Word on a Mac?

[Powerpoint] Detect identical pictures
0 replies , 7/29/2008, 8:36:45 AM
Is there a way to detect identical pictures used in a powerpoint slide? Do they reference the same resource internally? And if so, how can I check that reference? I'm going through all shapes of a slide and use the "export" command for all pictures to extract them. This usually leads to a lot of duplicates which I want to avoid as good as possible. The only (less elegant and more expensive) solution I found is to export everything, iterate over all images and compare their checksum and delete duplicates afterward. Any ideas? Thanks Daniel

Retrieving pictures from Picture Manager
1 replies , 8/12/2008, 3:36:21 PM
I downloaded some travel pictures from my camera as usual. After I successfully downloaded them and began to rename them, about halfway through, my computer started to go a little wonky and asked me if I wanted to replace the file. (my downloaded photos). I kept pressing the "NO" button. After several attempts, I pressed the "YES" to replace the file (Photo). Now, I do not have any image of my photos. I tried to do a "Go Back" but that didnt work. When I click on the "empty shell" it still contains the date, title and KB and size. It is as if the image is cloaked. When I perform a search, all the photos are where they are supposed to be. I have all the renamed and orginal titles of each picture, there just isn't an image. I have tried everything. I am sure this is something very simple, but I need to figure out how to retrieve these travel pictures I took over the weekend. Can anyone please help me out with this?

I put my screensaver on "My Pictures". It seems to be going through the Clip Organizer, which is okay, but I want to choose specific pictures. Is there a way to do this? Thank you.

creating picture run arounds

Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: Power PC In Word 2004 I used the polygonal lasso tool to draw a "run around" shape which allowed me to crop out backgrounds. I would draw the polygone over a picture I wanted to crop. Then I would cut the picture and paste it inside the shape which would crop out the background. I cannot figure out how to do this in 2008. Is it still an option or do I have to stay with 2004 to use this feature?
