I've had this problem before in Windows XP but don't know what to do with it in Vista. My pictures all come through properly but when I went to help, I am finding a red x (in a box) next to the graphic image for the subject I am in.

Had problems with the "Com Surrogate not working error" and have it solved by uninstalling the current DivX, Nero, and Urge. Have not had the problem since. I did upgrade to the most current DivX so I don't think that is the problem.

Any help would sure be appreciated.

Just a quickie guys and gals,

I'm cataloging all my video files on my pc. Nothing that fancy just folders in thumbnail view. In each folder there will be the video file and a picture that i want to use as the thumbnail. Now i can go through right click > properties > customize > choose picture and it will work fine. But ive done this before some time ago and i'm pretty sure that you can rename the image file so it does that automatically saving some clicking time (But ive forgotton how.)

Can anyone help.

On the subject as well. Anyone know of any good catalogue software that will show my videos on the hard disk with a nice thumbnail picture so i can browse through.

Hi

File Explorer>Pictures>Open Pictures.

If Your Photos come up as just a List and don't show up as Thumbnails, look at the Two Small Icons at the Bottom Right of the Screen and 'Toggle' between them.

The first one gives you a List View and the other one gives you a Thumbnail View.

Or you could Click: View at the Top of the Screen and then you Can not only see your Photos as Thumbnails but you can also choose the Size.

When I save movie clips to a folder, some have a thumview of the movie and some (most) do not.

I must have done something to change this because it used to be that I could download 20 or 30 movie clips and they would all show a picture in the thumbnail view.

As I said, now only a few would show the picture representing the clip.

I have tried all the view settings, folder customizations etc.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

check the format of the clips, the clips which show are probably differant formats to the ones which don't. Could you post the formats? (This is like .avi)

How do you email a thumbnail. I have been requested to send a thumbnail picture. It should be 81 pixels deep and in .jpg format. I know how to attach a .jpg picture to my email, but do not understand how to attach or send a "thumbnail" as a picture. I will also be sending a regular .jpg of the picture to the same person. Please help.
 

Answer:email a thumbnail picture

A "thumbnail" is essentially just a small stamp-size version of a regular-size picture. If the recipient wants a thumbnail of a specific size (81 x 81 ppi), open the regular-size picture in a graphics editor (eg Photoshop Elements). Choose "Resize", change the existing ppi values to 81 x 81, then save with a new filename in the same folder as the regular-size picture.

Now, open your email client software and attach both the regular and the small thumbnail picture.

Hi all,

Relatively simple problem, I have just explained it in great detail do please give a read

I was just wondering how I would go about setting the picture on a folder to be what I want, but to have it set, like using a .dat file or something.. What I am trying to do is organize my music collection, which is quite large, and I want to set the cd covers for each album as the picture on the folder. I know how to do it normally (right click>properties>customize>choose file), but sometimes the picture won't stay there, so if I go back to the location of that folder again, it will just be a normal yellow folder, or have a picture of the audio symbol (because there are audio files in the folder). I would like to be able to 'hardwire' it as such, and make it always show the picture I want, regardless of anything else that happens.

I have all my music on an external hard drive which I don't keep plugged in, only when I want to listen to music. As the location of this post would suggest, I have Vista, Home Premium.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated

My customized folders thumbnail picture(folder picture in thumbnail view) disappear when I copy folder to a different drive (or even different location on same drive).
Anybody knows how to retain the customized settings or force XP to display manually added thumbnail? I want to be able to ad a picture as a folder’s thumbnail ONCE and have it there forever when I copy and move the folder. It seems to me that this is the idea of customization folders. Why doesn’t it work?
 

Answer:Why does folder's thumbnail picture disappear?

Welcome to TSG!

Windows stores folder customizations in the registry for each folder. Part of that info includes the full path to the folder, so if you move or copy it, the resulting folder is a totally different folder.

If you don't Customize the folder, Windows will use the first 4 images it finds in the folder (and it's subfolders) and displays them on the icon. You can also specify one image by saving the picture you want to use in the root of the folder named folder.jpg or folder.gif. Be sure to click Use Default on the Customize tab to start using one of these files.

I'm not sure if this is a windows issue, a screen resolution issue or what is going on. I use the windows 8.1 picture library like everyone else does -- to view and select certain photos for copying, moving or deleting. With my Yoga 2 pro, the extra large icons (thumbnails) are the same size as the large icons; too small to really see the picture. The only diggerence is that when viewing so-called extra large icons, there are only 4 per row instead of 11. These 4 are just separated by white space, not larger.  With the extra large icons I can not use my fingers to resize/zoom the page. How can get truly extra large thumbnails?  More information: I have my display set at "extra extra large", 250%. Thanks for your help.

Answer:Yoga 2 pro picture library thumbnail size problem

I have this problem exactly as you describe.  This is a big issue for me as I use extra large icons to select and tag photos.  Changing the screen resolution DOES NOT help this problem at all.  The only thing that has helped slightly is to use the magnifier tool to at least be able to see a little bit of detail in the pictures.  Has anyone seen a fix for this?

Is it possible to have the Folders in List format but the individual files within the folder as thumbnails? If so, how do I do it - so far I can only get them both the same.

Answer:Picture views-List folders but Thumbnail files?

If you are referring to a mix of folders and files that reside in the same parent folder window, the answer is no, unfortunately. A folder window will only adopt one view at any one time.If you are talking about files within a set of folders, such as a group of folders in My Pictures that each contain folders, they can adopt different views. My Pictures could use, say, tiles view and each folder therein could use thumbnail view.

Does anyone out there have any experience with Ulead Picture Show 2.0? I'm looking for slideshow software, and am considering it. I have tried a few freeware and trial versions of other programs, but was always disappointed in the sharpness of pictures (on TV) of the final product. Most of them seemed to be a lot less sharp than when I just stick a disk of JPEGS in (a DVD player) and view them. If you've used Ulead, are you satisfied. PC Magazine gave it a pretty good review, but actually gave it's Editors' Choice to ProShow Gold, which costs quite a bit more. Any input would be appreciated.

Hi I have a windows vista, and for some reason some pictures saved to my C: drive, won't delete, but they were in a long list of folders, so of course seeing this I deleted the one folder within the C drive and thought that that would fix the problem, nope, I now can search the start menu search and still see the pictures within there, but when trying to open they give me the ERROR: Failed to open document or trying to delete them: ERROR: the C:\users\users.. folder does not exist. The file may have been moved or deleted. Then it will ask me if I would like to create the file and if i click yes it'll not be there or it too can't be deleted. Thoughts how I could possible get rid of these pictures?

Answer:Picture's that were deleted still show up?

How are you viewing the files? If they're deleted from within the folder they are stored they should no longer exist. If you're viewing them from a Internet browser or possibly a program that caches the files it's possible that they may be in the cache or temporary folder of that program and you'll need to empty that programs cache. You may also want to run disk cleanup by clicking Start and in the search for programs box type "clean" and then click on the Disk Cleanup icon. In disk cleanup check download program files, temporarily internet files, recycle bin, thumbnails, and temporary files.

Answer:For a Picture Slide Show....

Well, I personally have been asked to do this before by a teacher friend of mine. I used PowerPoint 2010 for that and used the metro design with the pictures. I just made a mosaic on each slide, used a fade in animation on each photo and staggered the timing, then had a blank black slide fade in and did it again. I used certain transition animations based on the tempo of the song at that particular timing. It was intense! The song I used was by Grouplove, Tongue Tied. I find it's a fantastic song to go with an emotional, memory packed presentation. It's about 3 and half minutes long. Another song that can be used is Spun by Grouplove too, but I'd go with Tongue Tide as you can cry and sing along with it and it's really happy!

I'd recommend PowerPoint for this, especially 2013, as you can save the presentation in not only in a .wmv video file but publish it onto a CD. Pretty handy! You won't get quality loss either.

2 days ago when I was cleaning my computer from inside from dust, and when i connected everything back (I didn't pull out any of the components) my monitor went blank, and only the brown light was shining. Then I disconnected the graphics card and put it back in. All the same, my graphics card still works, but I had to connect the monitor to the motherboard integrated card. When my system booted up (Windows 7 Ultimate), in devices and printers tab, under the computer icon was a yellow questionmark, saying that the PCI memory controller misses drivers, but it can't find them on the Internet. My MB is AMD 690v , and my graphics card is ATI HD 4670. What should I do? PLEASE HELP ASAP. Thanks.
 

Answer:Monitor doesn't show picture!

You motherboard may contain that AMD chipset but that is not the motherboard make and model. You need to identify the motherboard make and model and go to the motherboard manufacturer's website to find drivers for it. You would go to ATI's website for graphics drivers if you ever need them.

That said, you shouldn't suddenly be missing these drivers. Did you take precautions against static electricity discharge while you were cleaning the insides of the PC? Hopefully reinstallation of the motherboard drivers will be enough.

By the way connecting your monitor to the integrated graphics does not mean your Radeon HD 4670 card still works. It only works if your monitor is plugged into the 4670 and you get a normal output.

Hi,
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
When you click the Photo tile on the Home screen, you get to pick from several picture libraries, including the one on your computer. From there, you can browse folders and watch the photos you wish to view.
 
To start the slide show, right-click anywhere on the screen and select Slide show near the lower-right corner.
 
Once started, you have some control over the slideshow. Pressing the space bar will pause the show. The left and right arrow keys will take you to the last or next picture. To start it again, right-click the screen and click the Slide show icon again.
 
Refer here to see how to start a slideshow using windows photo viewer.

Answer:Account picture does not show on welcome screen

Oh I'm bad its probably because I used that command thing to turn off the password log in.

I have Dreamweaver CS3 and I want to be able to add a picture slide show to my website. What I am looking for is for it to have a picture viewer and then on the side or bottom have thumbnails of all the pictures that are available and you can scroll through them and when you click on on it will show it in the viewer. I was thinking something like a Flash slide show or something.

I have searched and can't figure out how to do it, has anyone else done this?
 

Answer:Add picture slide show in Dreamweaver

you would need flash installed or some extension
I think DW does this is javascript
I did a simple html code for mouse over and or click ,used it on ebay works great wish I can remember it off hand

I have an area on my home page that I want to display pictures. I have seven of them -one for each day of the week.How can I make these pictures change from one picture to the next once a day or every 24 hours?(I have macromedia MX.)Mark

Answer:Picture Slide Show - every 24 hours?

The simplest way is to just manually change the file daily. It will take a few moments of your time and requires no further scripting.The only real solution I can think of for automating it involves storing the images in an online database and scheduling their change using some nifty scripting.You would need either MySQL or Access/Microsoft SQL database support with either PHP or ASP pages to run the scripting.Alternative methods could include using a JavaScript redirect where a site visitors browser identifies the system day/date and redirects them to that days page based on that timestamp. This is clumsy and does not work well if you have international visitors who may call a cached version of your page from a network server rather than access the actual page in live time and it would also require all seven pages to be present and correct at all times to select from, as well as relying on the vagaries of a visitors web browser and its ability to handle your JavaScript to begin with.You could modify one of the free banner management scripts from this site click here to do what you want, but again, they mostly rely on your web hosts underlying database and dynamic page support to work properly.The short answer is yes you can do it and no there is no simple way that I can think of off-hand to acheive it.

I recently installed a new LCD monitor which worked fine for a week.Now when I start XP the screen shows Bios screen & choice of systems(I have XP partitioned),I select either,wait & no picture.If I use the re-set button on the case,after the choice of starting options comes up & I select normally everything is fine.
One side has a MS driver for the nVidia Ti 4200 with AGP 8X,the other,which I use for gaming has the latest uncertified nvidia driver.
If when it's up & ruuning I change partitions by doing a re-start the other side works fine.

Well, what the title says...my camera's screen is grey when it is turned on, although I can still take pictures with it. The camera is a Sony DSC-S40 just to let you know. I don't know if it is the camera's inside hardware or the software that is creating the problem.
I want to know if I can fix this before sending it to Sony. So, if there is no help you can give me, is there anywhere else you can recommend to find a possible solution to this problem?
Thanks
 

Answer:Camera will not show picture on screen

Have you pushed the “Monitor” button to the lower left of the 4-way buttons? It cycles the display on and off. Can you see anything when you press the Menu button?

Assuming you know about the monitor switch you are probably going to find your LCD isn’t going to work. There is no menu setting I can think of that would cause the LCD to not display when you cycle the monitor switch.

And if you can’t see anything in menu mode the camera will have limited utility even though it has an optical viewfinder.

As a keen flickr member I have a lot of photographs on my computer. These are all neatly allocated to different files, depending upon a variety of variables. So far....all is well.

Yesterday my neighbour kindly upgraded me to Windows 10. Everything seemed fine.

Today I tried to take 4 photographs off my camera and load them up to my computer. Initially I got a dialogue box asking me what I would like to do in future when I plugged in my camera - I said "upload the pix to my computer".

Previously they have always arrived on my desktop in a separate file. I would then edit them, afterwards splitting them up into different files, depending on what I want to do with them.

Anyway, this morning, after taken 4 photographs, I plugged in my camera. I then get a message saying "We found 880 photos. Would you like to import them into your picture folder". And the only alternatives given were IMPORT or CANCEL.

Aggggggggh! I do NOT want all my pix jumbled together in a picture folder. I want them all neatly organised into the folders I have set up.

Is there any way I can get rid of this 'Picture folder' and go back to using my existing folders (they are all still there, and all still containing the photographs they should rightfully contain.)

I would be hugely grateful for some help.

Answer:Picture file trying to over-ride my existing picture files

What happens if you click Import? Does it give you the option to move them into a specific folder or does it just appear in the Pictures folder? Usually, you can just double-click the camera in This PC so that you can see its contents and you can copy over photographs that you want into the locations that you want them in.

I'd like to remove all the duplicates by reading the actual picture information and not the files name which most do,I've tried a couple so far and none have found a single duplicate.

When I first installed WinX it showed a different picture each day in the "pre sign in" lock screen, either for a second or two or until I clicked the sign-in spot. Since I am the administrator I don't have to use a password to sign in, and WinX seems to sometimes, but not always, recognize this and automatically bypasses the sign-in process and goes to the normal wallpaper background after a maybe 1 sec delay. I am using the latest version of Classic Shell and maybe this adds to the OS "confusion".

Since the last Windows Update some days ago (around 2.3 GB if I remember) it shows the SAME picture every day now. In the Personalization lock screen panel it shows:

Background

Without knowing the address of the page, it is difficult to say. However it may be possible.

You could use something like Ethereal to watch what is being accessed. I'm sure that there is plenty of other software that would show you this information. If the pictures are embedded in the Flash file then you would not be able to download them seperately.
