Question: Re a person GOOD with Photoshop improving an image for me.


First, I got Mike Cermak's OK to post this request for someone comfortable with Photoshop to improve my image.

I lack the skill and the patience. My impression is that it would be a fairly short job--perhaps 1/2 hour at most -- for which I would be willing to pay some reasonable price up front.

If some such person should be interested, perhaps he could contact me through the private messaging system and give me his email address in that message. Then I could email the image I have as an attachment explaining what I wanted done and we could discuss things via regular email at that point. It is a 4.73 mb file as I want to make an 8 x 10 or even an 11 x 14 print. (I photographed the picture with a 5 megapixel camera.)

Edit: corrected spelling of Mike's last name

Preferred Solution: Re a person GOOD with Photoshop improving an image for me.

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi there, I have z60m and 25031 PCIe Docking Station, where i installed an ATI x300 graphic card.The laptop is also ATI Mobility X300, and behaves quite well.  Now the x300 in the Docking station gets slow somtimes. For instance when watching Videos. I'm firmly to believe that this is because of the 30 MB/sec or so,  limitation in the Docking Station, i've read somewhere here. On the other hand, i could improve things a bit by changing the x300 to x1300 in the dock, though i don't fancy this theory very much because of the limitation previously described. Could someone shed some light on this for me, please ? Many thanks in Advance Pernalonga

So I have a fairly decent PC (see specs below) but I am having some troubles with it now.  Whenever I am running a game, it start out running smooth and then suddenly goes jumpy and a random point.This is occurring in games that I used to play on maximum settings with no problem (Bioshock) and in new games that I play on the minimum settings (Call of Duty: World at War).  Even when I changed the settings (Bioshock) from the highest to the absolute lowest, this problem still occurs.  *A few notes-  I recently had to restore my computer due to a start up problem.  After I restored it, I updated it with the most recent video card drivers.  When that didn't work, I downloaded the previous video card drivers and that had no effect either.  It was exactly the same.  Here are my specs:Toshiba P105-s9722 (I didn't write this description, so sorry if it sounds corny)* Powerful multimedia, gaming PC with 17-inch LCD; 2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T7200 processor (4 MB L2 cache)* Gigantic 200 GB hard drive, 2 GB of RAM (4 GB max), dual-layer, multi-format DVD/CD burner* Four USB 2.0, one FireWire, one S-Video, one DVI-D, one PCMCIA, one Expresscard 54/34, multi-format memory card reader* Nvidia GeForce Go 7900 graphics card with 256 MB of dedicated RAM; tri-mode 802.11a/b/g wireless connectivity; Bluetooth* Windows XP Professional Edition, SP2--Windows Vista capable and Windows Vista Premium readyI appreciate any help and will gladly fall to ...

Hey there, Just looking for some help because i've triiiied everything. So for the past few months i've had the ongoing problem of my computer locking up entirely at random intervals. Meaning the mouse freezes the keyboard is inactive any sound or animation stops but the image is freezed but still there. No blue screen of death no restart no nothing.

So i've done the virus and spyware scan with up to date definitions, ive done the boot time virus scan with avast. I used a windows memory diagnostics disc and it passed both normal and extended tests. I did check disks a few times and all was well. i HAD xp sp3 installed but i read somewhere someone had this same problem and it was solved by uninstalling sp3. I did so and the problem persisted, only then my internet browsers failed. bad move. :P anyways i reformatted and ran more antivirus and spyware and memory tests. Nothing. And now maybe one out of ten times i can login without it freezing right when i press my name. The problem is worse, i'm posting from safemode right now. I feel like i'm running out of options here.. My specs are:
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ 2.20GHz 512 MB of RAM NVIDIA GEFORCE FX 5500 .. windows XP home edition SP2

Any help would be appreciated. IS there anyone who has heard of or had this problem personally?? This is really grinding my gears and unfortunately i can't afford to have my computer checked out nor get a new one. :(

Good Karma for trying to ;)

Answer:Good karma to the person who helps the helpless. :D

Hangs are as difficult to diagnose as BSOD's because there can be so many causes. Actually they can be more difficult to diagnose because at least the BSOD does a dump with information about what caused it.
Look for clues in the event viewer. Go to control panel (classic view), administrative tools, event viewer. Look at various events (double-click to see the details) and see if any of them seem to correlate with your hangs (or seem repetitive). Look at both the application and system log. Also look in device manager. Any device malfunctioning?

One thing you'll often get asked is: is your PC properly cooled? I think overheated components can fail and cause hangs too. I'm not sure how to monitor temperature, but I think there are menus in the BIOS to check that. (I also don't know how high is too high).
Check all your connectors - particularly on the hard drive (both power and data). Also check all your cards are properly seated (memory too). If a component is loose and suddenly gets disconnected, even for a fraction of a second, you can get a hang (why I'm not sure - I think it's current getting recircuited or something).
Less obvious, check for any bulging capacitors. ( has some pics - some kind of dramatic, but just make sure they don't bulge on top - it doesn't have to leak to be bad).

If all else fails, it's possible some component got shorted or is dead (or semi-dead). You'll have to go the long way and find out whic... Read more

Any good reminder application to remind a forgetful person

Previously I used to use VirtuaReminder.
But the reminders keep missing recently for no reason, so I have to switch to another application.

Does anyone know if there's a good reminder application?
It doesn't matter if I need pay for the application, as long as it is good!

My criteria:
- when the reminder is triggerred, I can choose among "sound", "pop-up", "falshing", and a combination. I prefer "sound + pop-up" personlly
- the reminder can be triggered in the following ways:
-- when the computer starts
-- at a regular time (eg once per month)
-- at more than 1 time period (eg triggered on 3rd Mar, 15th Apr, 25th Apr!)
- when it is triggered, have the ability to postpone the reminder (eg tell the reminder to re-trigger 30mins later)
- It has to trigger reminder correctly (I tried some applications previously which are faulty - eg if I log-on my computer at 5:00pm. There're 2 reminders at 2:00pm & 3:00pm. It only triggerred one)

- have the ability to copy reminders
- have the ability to import/export the reminder database

Thank you!

Answer:Photoshop CS - Too good to be true?

I think its technically illegal, reason I think so is OEM software does as they say come in plain packaging without any manuals etc BUT (as far as I am led to believe) its meant to be supplied with new hardware which this company is obviously not doing. They make no mention of this, however thats not to say that you can't buy it though. The reason I say technically is I've noticed a lot of other places selling OEM software so its probably unenforcable to a certain degree.

I have both Adobe photoshop cs and Adobe imageready cs installed on my pc, and i was wondering:

Is there anyway i can get rid of any red-eyes in my pictures?

And is there anyway that i can get rid of blurring on my pictures?

Answer:photoshop or image ready??

I'm not a photoshop expert, but I do know that you can preform a very competant and user friendly red-eye removal with much more low end products, such as google's picasa:

Or Kodak's easy share, to name a couple.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by blurring (out of focus? motion tracers? objects to distant?). I believe both of the tools above have a "Sharpen" feature which is only so-so.

My instinct is that blurry images can be improved significantly with the right set of skills, but I'm affraid I don't know how to do it.

But I'm sure one of the many smart folk out there can shed some light...

I have been using Photoshop for two or three years but recently have a problem not experienced before. A downloaded photograph is shown in the 'image size' dialog box as 14.44 x 10.0 inches. When I crop the picture by removing less than an inch it is then shown in the 'image size' dialog box as being about 2.4 x 1.8 inches, when the extent of cropping should have only reduced the size by about 2 inches (width and height). 'Constant Proportions' and 'Resample Image' are both checked. The resolution increses very significantly on the cropped picture. Any suggestions as to why the size reduces out of proportion to the cropping would be greatly appreciated.

Let me take a stab at this. I do not have Photo Shop so I will try to guide you in the right directions.

Look for a preference, or options in Photo Shop. See if somewhere there is a place to set it the way you want it.

If not what I would do is uninstall it, reboot, delete the program folder, reboot and reinstall it. It sounds like you might have a corrupt file if there are no settings where you can change it.

That means being able to save my stuff in gimp, with layers, full color, and alpha channels saved too.

Even adobe's own .PS doesn't seem to be able to handle transparency and so asks me to flatten the image.

When working in Photoshop 6 in classic mode, the cursor (tools), disappear over the image, but then reappears outside the image. However, the move tool and the cropping tool act normal.

I've trashed the Photoshop prefs, reset the tools, and re-installed the software. Is there something else I can try to solve this perplexing problem?

Answer:Photoshop 6 cursor disappears over image

is it just certain tools that you can't see? eg pen tool or paintbrush? Your paintbrush size might just be so small (eg 1 pixel) and your image so large that you just can't see it, unless you're zoomed in of course. Try upping the size of the tool if so.

Does anyone know if it is possible to get these symbols to correctly display in Photoshop? I've Googled it and looked at the manual to no avail.

Apologies if this is the wrong forum - it looked the most likely one to me.


Answer:Using greek symbols in Photoshop image text - possible?

Oops - turned out the solution is simple. For anyone else who wants to know, there's a font called Symbol which, unsurprisingly, has lots of common Greek and Latin symbols.

Now I feel stupid.

I recently downloaded the trial of Photoshop CS4 (after getting the laptop back from repair, new hard drive and all) and the image/workspace or whatever you call it is messed up. Its hard to describe so here's a screenshot instead:***.jpg

EDIT: Bah, censor messed up the link, it should be w t f where the asterisks are.

Where you see the transparency, no image will show in that space, it just gets cut off. I tried reinstalling the trial to no avail, and (trying to) update my graphics card drivers because it PS kept showing a message about it. I have no idea if the update actually worked or not, though.

Any idea what could be causing this?

Can someone recommend an alternative to Photoshop?

Answer: Gimp

Been there, done that
I've tried, I really really have

Gimp is sooo unituitive to use
Menus and options are in the wrong places
(If I don't find an answer... maybe I'll spend another few hours giving it another go)

What I need:

- resize images
- crop images
- add shadows around images
- create PNG's sometimes
- cut/resize/crop images and out them on to of another image

That's all I ever do 98% of the time

Gimp is heavy as well - I'm sure someone should be able to create an image editing solution that is a few 100KBs!

There are some editors online that kinda fit the bill - like aviary and others
But... for the time taken to load and use, nothing comes close to Photoshop

YES: I'd love a free option
But... I'd also consider paid options as well

Hello, I'm having some problems with removing a white background from a circular Microsoft image.

I'm using Photoshop CS4 Extended and I've tried a few ways including selecting the image with the magnetic lasso tool and then pasting it onto a new layer with a transparent background but then when I save it as a TIF and open the image into a powerpoint it still has the white background.

I just want to the image pasted into Powerpoint to be the image within the circle, not the shadow or the white.

I believe the way to do it is with a clipping mask but I haven't found much information that I can understand.

I had the same problem as Nawlins in 2008: who had the question: "Is there a way in photoshop cs3 to determine the size of an image that has been resized with the transform control? I want a series of images in different layers all exactly the same size but have only been able to accomplish this by figuring it out manually through using the ruler."

I was have the same problem, and I found this solution and wanted to pass it on.

First I went to Edit, Preferences, Units & Rulers and selected "pixels" in the ruler and type of the Units section.

Then I went to the layer with the image I wanted to know the size of and selected it with the Free Transform tool. Then I went to Window, Info and you can see the size of the image in pixels in the info panel.

Hi all,

I'm new to Photoshop. I'm trying to save an image without the white square background. I was able to create a layer by going to Image > Extract and tracing around the object. I haven't figured out how to save the extracted object. When I save the image, it looks the same as the original (white background included). I've tried saving in different formats (JPG, GIF, PNG, etc.). How can I save the foreground image only? I've spent way too much time today looking for this, and it's probably very simple (and will make me feel like a schmuck I'm sure).

I recently reinstalled XP on my computer and installed Photoshop CS2. All went well for a week or so and then the colors started displaying radically incorrectly on any graphics file type I opened. My desktop colors are normal, only the graphics file within Photoshop displays incorrectly. The weird part is that Photoshop Elements displays the images correctly! and so does my image/thumbnail viewer, Irfan View. Also, I happened to open a PDF file in Acrobat and the image files in that document were also totally whack, like in Photoshop. by totally whack, I mean that blue displays as saturated magenta, Yellow displays as green, etc. I'm thinking there might be a corruption in something common to both Photoshop CS2 and Acrobat, but why Elements is not affected is a mystery. Does it handle color information differently than CS2 and Acrobat?

I've tried all the suggested solutions- tweaking the gamma, color profiles, reinstalling video drivers, lowering screen resolution and pixel depth. I also tried uninstalling CS2 and installed an copy of Photoshop 7 with no improvement. This leads me to believe that the problem is outside the installed Photoshop files, but common to Photoshop and Acrobat.

I cleaned the registry with Registry Mechanic. Nothing has worked. I have 512k of memory, a Diamond S85 128mb DDR Radeon 9250 AGP card installed. Previous to the Win XP install, Photoshop worked fine. Along with the fresh XP install, I installed some new programs, maybe there'... Read more

When I close the image, Photoshop quits, only to re-launch every single time I open an image.

Is there a feature in Outlook where a whole department which receives emails daily (Accounting) can somehow organize themselves to show what each person is doing. Right now they are seeing the emails but not telling each-other what there doing and we think that some things might get missed. I had an idea of using the categories and changing the colours/names to each person in accounting. But that would make each staff members email extinct. I see an option called tasks in Outlook could there be a way of doing it in there? We are all using Outlook 2007 and running Exchange 2010.

This is scary and I'm wondering how it happened:

I sent an 8-page fax to a gov't office with personal info. I had sent faxes to them before with no problem. Let's say their fax number is 332-3333. I used the same method as usual, clicking on "TO" and selecting the contact from the list.

Today, I met a friend in a store and she said "Oh, by the way, I received this fax regarding your daughter by mistake, the other day." Embarrassing, but thank goodness she's a good friend instead of someone else.

When I got home, I checked my Windows Fax "sent" folder. It appeared normal and that fax appeared to have gone to 332-3333. I clicked on Properties and the recipient number was again, 332-3333. BUT when I clicked on the DETAILS tab, I saw "CSID= 422-1944" and that's my friend's phone number!!

My question is, how did this happen? My friend isn't on my contact list and I have never sent her a fax. The only connection I could think of is that I had phoned her on the telephone earlier that day, before I sent the fax.

(I tried phoning the gov't office, but they're not answering, so I have no idea if they received the 8-page fax that I sent on Sunday. I re-sent it today).

Just thought I'd post this to the forum because I'm a bit freaked out right now.

i see people sackriding True Image everywhere and never understand it.
I have tested and compared True Image 10 vs Ghost 12 vs ShadowProtect. and if not for the fact that Ghost 12 does not do backup from boot CD, True Image ranks last in every single category. the most terrible thing is that True Image's boot CD is very slow to backup/restore to USB drives because it does not support USB 2.0. you have to build a bartPE bootCD with USB 2.0 plugin to use it .
on the other hand, ShadowProtect is extremely fast, even faster than Ghost 12, and has almost no flaws. but i dont see anyone using it

Answer:what's good about True Image??

okay?? And your point is? Did acronis crash your system and you had to buy or build a new pc???
For me, i have acronis 8.0. It works perfect, and thats all, why consider the alternatives when this does exactly what i want it to do????
And second, I dont care about speed, because it takes a while (about an hour for 50 gigs) to do a full backup without compression. So, i just find something else to do, or hop on one of my two laptops.

Also thats a lie about not able to backup via usb2.0. As i have stated before i have 8.0, and you see the time i posted for 50 gigs, thats to my external usb drive that you see in my sig. Hell i remember when i had to move just 25 gigs of music from my old pc via IPOD (using usb1.0) it took the whole night. So with 50 gigs in 1 hr is using the usb 2.0 feature.

Hi guys,

I recently installed a new graphic card - new Gigabyte HD585OC. Prior to that I was running only integraded chipset HD 3200. Of course Im very happy with my new graphic (I also installed new PSU - Corsair VX550 550W) and the difference is remarkable.
But.. I thought that with this graphic I would be, for example able to run LOTRO at full details at my current crapy resolution 1280x1024. but if I turn on Anti-Aliasing x8 instead of x4 the game runs good (fps metter 40-50) but it lags. Like the FPS is still up and high, but the image is tearing a little. Also my copm makes this tear-noise for example when the far textures are loading and Im sure thats the noise comming out of my procesor or whatever but not the graphic card.

Here are my specs:

1. Motherboard - ASUS M3A78 PRO
2. Graphic interface - Gigabyte Radeon HD 585OC
3. Memory -2048mb (dual)
4. CPU -AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+
5. CPU Speed -3111 (overclock from 2900) / bus speed: 213,6 MHz
6. Power Supply Make/Model - Corsair VX550 550W
7. Watt output/Amperage -dunno where to find the one, because there are so many displayed in AMD OverDrive / other programes
8. OS: Windows XP Prof. 32bit

Now, I know that my procesor is slowing the card down, thats obvious, But I though that if I added maybe some aditional RAM it might have helped a little (even though running XP with 2gb, resp. 1,75gb should be allright).
So do you have any suggestions on what should I do to get rid of this tearing ?
Thanks f... Read more

Answer:FPS good, but the image is tearing

Tearing is typically caused by 2 things (that I can think of); 1 - drivers, 2 - heat.

Drivers being the more likely of the 2. So I'd make sure you have the most up to date drivers for the card before getting concerned about heat. If you have done that, then I'd look into something to speed up your GPU fan (RivaTuner?).

Hello Guys,
I am just in the process of producing a (ghost) image on a Samsung p500. This is for our student Higher Education courses at our college. What came to mind was that i have never seen a post that specifies the features of a good (ghost) image. Im a trainee Helpdesk Engineer at the moment so im sure my images could be improved! But what i usually do with my images is this:

Install Fresh Copy on unpartitioned Drive of Windows XP Professional with SP2
Install Relevant Drivers.
Add Remove Components, Outlook Express, Msn Explorer and Windows Messenger.
Windows Update - All Updates.
Install Nero Burning Rom + BurnRights
Install Microsoft Office 2003 with SP2
Install Acrobat Reader 7
Disable Error Reporting Service.
Install our Student VPN Software.
Make a new Admin Account for ourselves (Students use the Administrator Account).
Sysprep the Machines.

We also support Apple Mac's at the college for student Media Courses and make Images for these. so if people could feed back on what they put on their Apple Mac images that would be great.

So there you go, if everyone could feed back on what they do with their Images and if there are any improvements you think we could make to ours. This would be much appreciated.
