People tagging of photos using details pane

Question: People tagging of photos using details pane

Hello.

I've been trying to re-organize my photo collection. Previously, I had been using Windows Live Photo Gallery to tag my photos, and admittedly it was convenient. Recently, though, the program has gone on the fritz to where thumbnails aren't loading so it's harder to differentiate photos simply by the file name in cases where I have a lot of photos of the same group or folder. While I've tried a lot of troubleshooting to get the thumbnails to load, and would gladly take advice on that issue, in the meantime I'm trying to accomplish the same thing using the details pane in explorer.

When I highlight a photo right now, most file types load the date stamp, tags, rating, author(s) and comments properties in the details pane. However, I'd like to edit the people properties so I can tag individuals in the photos. I have not seen a way to easily do that short of using other software (such as Photo Gallery).

Does anyone know if there's a way to do this through explorer or will it require a separate application?

How can I re-associate .mp4 files with video details displaying in the Details Pane? After installing the K-lite codecs pack, my mp4's all began displaying in the details pane as audio files (Album, Artist etc) and no longer displays the important video default details (size, frame height, bitrate etc). I assume it was because of incorrectly associating file types when installing the codecs (even though wmv's, avi's are still correct), so I uninstalled the codecs but the Details categories remain for typical audio files. I've exhausted The Google and I'm stumped... any help? (Win7, 32-bit with VLC as my default player) Thanks!

This seems like a weird one as I'm not having trouble with FF anywhere else.  Starting Sunday or Monday I noticed it would crash when I'd try to tag people in posts, that auto fill thing where you start typing a person's name and it pops up in the little box.  I'd just be typing something and, wanting to tag someone or not, it would come up, and after one or two per post Firefox would freeze and I'd have to use task manager to close it.  Any ideas what could be causing this?

Hi,I'm using Windows 7 Professional x64. When I use Windows Explorer to view image files (jpg, png, etc.), I would like to see each image's dimensions listed in the Details Pane (when it's set to view the images as Icons/Thumbnails, rather than Details). However, the only details that show up in the Details Pane are Name, Type, Date Created, Date Modified, and Size. This is the case even though:* I've checked 'Dimensions' in the 'Choose Details' options* The folder is already categorized/optimized for 'Pictures'* Other folders show the other details I want -- i.e., the Details Pane for my 'Videos' folder shows Length, Frame Width, Frame Height, and other details that I've chosenAny suggestions are appreciated.

Question: Tagging Photos

Is there an open source software that metatags photos? I don't want to use a proprietary software because only that software will recognize the tags (ands who knows how long it will be around). I currently put my photos into folders in year order, then event subfolders within the year. But as you know, many tags could apply besides year & event. Another way would be to create the tags in a database, with photo file name as the key, but then again you're tied to a proprietary system. But, that may be the only good way to do it. So, I was wondering what other folks do. Thanks. vper

I just did a reinstall of XP Pro and am having trouble with video files being "in use" when trying to move/delete them (only a several second lag, but it is annoying me). It has to do with a preview being generated in the details pane in the bottom left corner of Explorer. I eventually figured out how to turn off the preview option on my last install but have forgotten how I did it. Under folder options I have "do not cache thumbnails" unchecked. Is this the setting I need to change? Or is it somewhere else? It seems to me I need an option to not show a preview in the details pane.

Thanks for any suggestions.
 

Answer:How to Turn of Thumbnails in Details Pane?

I haven't done an XP install, but I have had problems like yours. Here is how I fix them without reinstalling, in case it may help? (The instructions may be different for XP.)

Thumbnails are used as icons when the folder is in Thumbnail view. This is usually not the problem, since they are usually cached after the first time. I turn them off by getting the Properties window for that folder. (I just go to the parent folder and right-click on the folder there, then choose Properties.) Then in one of the tabs, I find the Enable thumbnail view option and uncheck it. But, again, this is probably not the problem.

The preview thumbnail (actually, the whole details pane) can be turned off by unchecking View as Web Page in the View menu in one folder. Or, you can turn it off for all folders by going to View menu > Folder Options > General tab > choose Custom, then click the Settings button and in the View Web Content in Folders section, choose Only for folders where I select "as Web Page" [View menu]

If I want the details pane, but not the preview, I edit the HTML of the window. I don't know if you want to try this, it can be confusing, but here's what I do, just in case:
I right-click on the detail pane (or you can use the View menu), and click Customize this Folder... then choose create or edit HTML document. This allows me to customize that details pane. To remove only the worst case files from the preview, I see if I can find "var w... Read more

1. Run Regedit.
2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\SystemFileAsso ciations\.mp3 (Or whatever file type you want to edit.)
3. Edit the PreviewDetails string.

My question is:
Is there a way to do something similar for folders? Currently, the only info displayed in the details pane when a folder is selected is Date modified, and Availability. I would like to add other details to this pane (Size, Date created etc...). Is this possible?

Now I ended up with a problem where the comment being displayed eds with just some 3 or 4 words with the remaining given in dots (...) and I get a full display of it when i hover the mouse over it, which obviously goes way in 5 seconds or so.

So what i need is to find a way to expand what ever that is shown in the details pane so that it shows the entire content in consecutive lines without being restricted to one line (without having to hover a mouse)

Is there any way to permanently remove or disable all of the various "views" in the Windows 7 Navigation Pane *except* for Details? If a subdirectory contains audio files I *never* want to see "Album" or "Artist" or any of the rest of that garbage. If the subdirectory contains an image file I *never* want to see a thumbnail of images. If I need more information about a file I'll right click on it and select Properties, thankyewverymuch!

In short, when I click anywhere in the left or right panel in the Navigation Pane I never want to see *ANYTHING* except the file name, type, size, and date modified. If it isn't a file (e.g. Network, etc.) just show me a computer or device name, not some massive image of a router or other waste of my time.

Check that your files haven't suddenly become "Read-only".

Also try running CHKDSK to check the drive.

After I've used one of my external HDDs at TAFE, my PC claims that it is "Read-only" and it takes several CHKDSK commands to fix the problem.
Of course after CHKDSK is finished, it says that there weren't any problems.

The problem I see is that Vista shows the very 1st second of video, while Windows 7 shows the 4th. That's why many of the video previews on the details pane show a black screen on vista instead of actual video.





If anyone else has the answer, I will be really grateful.

I guess you could edit that through the registry, but believe me, lol, to be honest Idk...

Hi, I just re-installed windows 7 on my desktop pc and have a question about the settings of the details pane in windows explorer (the one that appears and the bottom when you select a file). Previously when I selected video files (.mp4, .avi and .mkv) I would get the details at the bottom, the video frame width and height, size of file etc.. but since I reinstalled I don't get these details when I select video files. I know its only a small problem but I work with video files a lot and have gotten used to seeing the resolution of files without having to open them. Does anyone know how I can get the details pane to show these details again? At the moment it only displays the video size, name and state.

Here is a screen-shot of the details pane for a selected .mkv video file on my laptop, this is what I want it to display on my pc.
 

Answer:Solved: Windows explorer details pane for videos problem

Is the folder set as a "Video" type?
Look at the properties of the folder, and there you will see a drop down list for the type.

I would like to see more audio details in win10 file explorer preview pane, especially the channels and bitrate for movies in the *.mkv format. (I would like to see if they include DTS 5.1, languages, subtittles etc.)

Before the latest creators update, this information was shown in the preview pane (along other video-details). Now I can't get it back. Icaros doesn't seem to help in this case.

What can I do?

When I double-click a message to open it from my inbox, the message opens and the people pane appears below the message. The people pane is from my social connector. However, this position is a bad default. The panes should be side by side (left and right) not top and bottom.

The marketplace is full of inexpensive laptops with good horizontal resolution and poor vertical resolution. It's bad enough some fool thought to split up the least available screen resources with a top and bottom look instead of going right and left side by side. Then, the rest of Microsoft followed along and shipped the product that way.

So, is it possible to alter the view so that the social information is to the right or left of my message when open?

The Mariposa botnet had the power to dwarf Georgia and Estonia cyberattacks if it had been used to launch denial of service attacks, say Spanish police.
Months of investigations by the Guardia Civil in Spain, the FBI and security firm Panda Security and Defence Intelligence led to the takedown of the 12.7 million strong zombie network in December and the arrest of three suspects in Spain two months later.
At a press conference announcing the operation in Madrid on Wednesday, Spanish police said they recovered the personal details of 800,000 people from systems recovered from three alleged cybercriminals. This cache of stolen information includes bank login credentials from businesses and consumers as well as email passwords.
Three Spanish residents suspected of running the botnet have been charged with online offences: the most senior alleged botmaster, nicknamed ?Netkairo?, 31, from Balmaseda in the spanish province of Vizcaya, as well as his two alleged lieutenants JPR, 30, from Molina de Segura Murcia and JBR, 25, from Santiago de Compostela in La Coru?a. None of the suspects have been named at this stage of proceedings.
In a statement (in Spanish here), Guardia Civil officers said they were also on the trail of a fourth suspect nicknamed Phoenix, who's possibly based in Venezuela.
Defence Intelligence discovered the botnet last May and formed a team that brought in security experts from Bilbao-based Panda and computer scientists at Georgia Tech Information Security Center... Read more

Your contacts are automatically saved with your Microsoft account. So first check whether you are signed in or not. If you aren't signed in, do that and wait for your contact to sync back to the phone
Your photos-if you had automatic uploads enabled for camera roll, then your photos would be backed up on your onedrive account which is the same as your microsoft account

Hey guys, I know I can't totally prevent them and if they want to do a screen shot of an image they can.
And maybe you guys know a better way for my to display my images. I have a website www.yesterdaysneuz.com.
It is a website of racing photos that my father has taken over the last 40+ years. I like the format I am using but am willing to redue it all if there is a good alternative. I am using photoshop Automate web gallery. It allows me to create 300 thumbnails per page. When you click on the thumbnail it goes to a larger photo. The large photo I can copyright. But the thumbnail I cannot. And I am finding my thumbnails all over the facebook. Help! I would love to keep my thumbnails the same size if possible with a copyright . i want to be able to share them but want credit for them as well. Do you know of any alternative gallery creators or something. I want people to be able to see the thumbnail(copyrighted) so they can click on a larger, copyrighted, image.

Thanks guys and I look forward to your replies.

Answer:How to prevent people from copying my photos on line??

Photoshop is creating the thumbnails for you so you could write an action to watermark the thumbnails for you. You could also use one of the free bulk watermarking tools to do the same thing once Photoshop has created the thumbnails.

Alternatively if you watermark the full sized images first before you create the Photoshop gallery then the thumbnails will be already watermarked.

Answer:adjust file preview size on file explorer details pane

There seems to be a minimum size which is pre-defined, you cannot make it smaller. The preview and details pane size is set by the DetailsContainerSizer binary value in the Registry key:

I do not know of way to make the thumbnail larger in the details pane. It is larger in the preview pane.

I just got a Windows 8.1 PC however and most of my contacts in People do not show pictures from Facebook or newsfeeds. It says there are no photos or the person chose not to share their photos with Windows People. Since my WP 7.8 still shows all content fine I don't understand why the People Hub on the 8.1 PC can't see it. Being able to see all twitter and Facebook posts for people and groups in the People Hub and on their live tile is THE reason I have windows phone.

When Win 10 launched, how Firefox complained, and in general how people were blaming MS to overly promote edge and seeing the popups of not removing edge as their default browsers, but what about this...(the screenshot) I see this at least twice a day from avast antivirus, sometimes it says "try chrome, has extension support, switch to a better browser". Now is this fair!!
*forgot the "v" in every in title. :|

Answer:And people blamed Microsoft for overly promoting edge eerywhere, forcing people..

Avast sucks... no matter how you see it or when you see it years ago or today, it sucks and it will always suck. even if it didn't tell you about installing chrome it will still suck.
Especially when it looks like another adware installed on a computer. the question is, why are you using Avast? or why did it become "popular"?
I like how you say they mention "extensions = better", when the only extension people really care is Adblocker and you can pretty much get adguard or adfender or host block as an alternative to the extension while Microsoft adds the support to edge. if a person doesn't care about ads that means they think that's "normal" so don't think ads can be blocked.
I think Edge is good, I like it, it doesn't make me a sandwich but chrome or Firefox won't do that either. I still have Firefox portable for small reasons like when I used WhatsApp web or some video streams that don't go fullscreen when you press the button on Edge.
So, I never saw wrong the way Windows 10 change defaults work now like Firefox complained. and I don't see wrong for Microsoft to display a "Give Edge a shot" message on windows 10 previews when you try to change it.
At least now browsers won't sneak install themselves and be "default" without a person knowing.

Ok, I have ADSL at home, line-shared (comes in on the same wires as my phone)
My GF is moving in, and we want to basically switch the telephone service over to hers.

My question : (2 parts, rather complex to me...)

1) If I disconnect my telephone service, will my DSL be affected?

2) If we "move" her phone service over to my house, will the DSL be affected by the move?
I hope i'm clear on what we're doing.

I'm cancelling my phone service then moving her phone service to my place.
 

Answer:Semi-Technical DSL Questions (Telco people, or CLEC people report in!)

Because the DSL service is linked with the phone number to the line it runs, if the phone service goes, so does the DSL.

Once again, if the number to the line is being moved, that has to be updated at DSLAM and the phone companies databaste. Thus, with the line being moved, the DSL will have to be reactived as well.

This is the same reason it takes several days for the phone company to activate your phone line for DSL to your house.

The "Details" which are available are those you see when a list of files is in "Details" view (as opposed to "Icons" or "Tiles" views.In "Details" view, depending on which column categories you have enabled, you are shown such things as filesize, file-date, filetype etc. If you then right-click any column header, you can choose to hide or show more information columns.I can't see how any of that can leave you scratching your head as it's no different to previous versions of Windows in that respect.

For one thing, the past two times someone added me to the messenger, and that screen comes up where I can choose to add them too, and I do so, for some reason the person automatically is set on Block, as if I did it by mistake. I thought I did it by mistake the first time it happened, but then it happened the same time the next day with someone else, so I know it isn't me. Also, someone who tried to add me just a few minutes ago asked me:

Question: mp3 Tagging

I have a song that refuses to get tags. In Musicmatch, it has and displays all the tag info I put on it, but in Windows Explorer, it doesn't show them, even when I click on Properties. Windows Media Player isn't able to play it either. None of my other songs have this problem.

Question: mp3 tagging

I've got a new mp3 player (Creative Zen, whoopee) and am gradually transferring all my CDs into mp3s to port to the player. However, I'm finding some problems with the songs due to the tagging. For example, a folder of Gorillaz live songs couldn't be tagged by Media Player or the Zen software, as it's not a 'proper' CD, so it comes up as 'Untitled Album' within the player itself when selecting a song. Of course, this is very irritating and I'd like to be able to rename the folder something more relevant so that I can find it more easily. Another bugbear, for example, is The Strokes having been labelled by the track finder on Media Player as 'Strokes, The', which is something else I can't change. Annoyance!So, is there a program that I can use to change these tags and iron out these (admittedly pedantic) flaws with my player? I've tried renaming the files within the player window in Windows, with Media Player and with the software that comes with it, all to no avail. Any help will be much appreciated!
