Urgent help needed - how to revert a bulk image name process?

Question: Urgent help needed - how to revert a bulk image name process?

Apologies - the Urgent in this is only because I'm unsure whether any action may need to be done before I close down in about 6 hours or so.

Basically my problem began in Picasa 3 where I watched a short vid then decided to change the filename. That done I closed the preview & went back to the main program where I discovered that Picasa had somehow decided I wanted the entire folder of images renamed so it has worked through the 500+ images and renamed each one as Filename001, Filename002, Filename003 and so on which as you can appreciate is now causing somewhat of a major headache for me. It would take me a good few hours I would rarely have to go through and rename each one manually, so my question basically is - is there any method or program that can undo the action as I can't find any means of doing so from within Picasa. All other options I've found in my searches are mainly to achieve pretty much the same i.e. bulk rename as Name1, Name2 etc so are of little help.

Anyone any suggestions what else I could try?

Preferred Solution: Urgent help needed - how to revert a bulk image name process?

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Urgent help needed - how to revert a bulk image name process?

I assume you don't have a Backup to fall back on. I use these two bulk renaming tools. You can see if they help. This is drop dead simple to use - http://www.fauland.com/af5.htm
This one has a more complicated interface but a couple other options - http://www.joejoesoft.com/vcms/108/

I've got a little problem.....i have a folder with a LOT of images (.jpgs).

I need to resize them ALL. The only way I can figure out doing this is opening them one by one in my image editor, resizing, saving, going to the next one.

With several hundred images, I would love to be able to do this in bulk. They all will be the same size when I am done with them.

Can this be done?

I'm working on a project right now but I've run into a problem. I have a CSV list of URLs for around 700 images and I need to download, resize, and rename them all. Manually this will take way too long for the project to be practical in any way by downloading each URL one at a time.

Is there a program out there that can take a list of image URLs and auto download them all? Would be a huge help if anyone knows of one. I've tried searching for one but all the one's I've found only work one URL at a time.

I'm new to these forums so if this is in the wrong forum let me know.
 

Answer:Solved: Bulk Image Downloader?

Hi!

I am looking for a FREE bulk image downloader program or chrome extension that will not crash my browser.

I want to use the program/extension to quickly download the pics I've shared on Facebook and Tumblr. Because it would take HOURS to go through and download each one by one.

I've tried a few extensions already, but each of them crashed chrome because they tried to save them by opening a "save as" window for each. So I need a program that allows you to save them into a folder or into compressed file/folder so that it doesn't crash my browser or my computer.

Any ideas??

I've found quite a few programs that will resize images in bulk, but none of them will quite do what I'm looking for.

I need to convert a number of images with various sizes (175x25, 140x100, 110x50, etc.) into 250x250. However, I don't want to stretch the original image, just add white trim around the outside of the image to make it 250x250. Any software I've found will only stretch the image. I can't do each image individually, because I have over 30,000 of them to go through. Does anyone know software that would do that in bulk?

ImageMagick makes it very easy from command line, and being command line there are no bells and whistles.

When installed and the DLL is registered you have all the commands available from command line, no need to start any programs to do graphics manipulations, tons of options if you read up on it on ImageMagick.org.

What you want would be as simple as opening a command prompt, go to the Dir with your pics, and type...
Code:
mogrify -format jpg *.bmp
...and that's all.

But as said, it can do MANY other things, if you read up on it.

Hi, I own a Lenovo G550 laptop preinstalled with windows 7 Home Premium. Lately, I've upgraded to Windows 8 Pro. Now that I want to revert back to Windows 7 I can't seem to find a way to do that as the recovery option simply doesn't work (the rescue button is inactive). I didn't format the HD partitions and the recovery partition (where the factory image is located) is still there. All  I did was inserting the Windows 8 DVD and clicking Upgrade - Windows did all the rest. How can I revert back to Windows 7 that came with the PC? Thanks, Ofir 

Answer:How do I revert back to the factory image after installing Windows 8?

hi ofircarmi,
 
Before you upgraded to Windows 8, did you created your Windows 7 recovery disc using this procedure? The reason I asked is because the One Key Recovery application & the OKR button will not work after you upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8 as discussed here.
 
If you didn't created a recovery disc, you will need a retail Windows 7 Disc to downgrade Windows 8 to Windows 7 or you contact Lenovo Technical Support to obtain the disc. Support phone list here.
 
 
Cheers

The origin of the images was 'save-as' from the WEB, and they had peculiar names which included 'jpg/png' in the name, as well as in the extension; many images had a lengthy name made up of (code) numerous characters.

Instead of using "save as", us a screen grabber such as Snagit, there are also free ones out there.

I've switched my laptop to safe mode so I can run a virus checker but now I can't log onto my machine. In safe mode my machine will not recognise my logon password that I normally use to connect both to mainframe and as a laptop.

I change to safe mode by Running msconfig, then selecting safe mode.

I've tried hitting F8 and selecting normal mode but it just keeps reverting to safe mode.

My systems guys are saying they cannot get my machine out of safe mode as there was no logon password loaded on my original machine build???

Can anyone advise me how I can restore normal mode before my systems guys wipe my C drive and start re-building my machine. Urgent help would be very much appreciated!

Neil.
 

Answer:Windows XP Safe Mode - How do I revert to Norma Mode - URGENT HELP PLS!!

Hi Neil, Robert here, ok just a couple of questions to clarify things a bit:
1. are you able to get to your desktop in safe mode then get into your start menu and typing in the run menu the "msconfig.exe" option? (Basically backtracking what you did before the incident)

2. If not have you tried to boot back up to the F8 list and select the "boot up last known good configuration...etc" ...something like that.. option?

But more importantly this question comes to mind, what made it necessary to boot into safe mode on your desktop just to do a virus scan? But most importantly, was there anything else that you may have done during the time of this incident or immediately beforehand that might have otherwise caused your angst? I am simply trying to get a better understanding of what exactly happened as this will better determine a possible solution than to just proceed to an extreme one ie. reinstalling a fresh copy of Windows on your laptop. Let me know how it goes, if not, you can email me or post your questions if you have any problems at all. Good luck, Neil! =)

A few hours ago, my computer started running extremely slow. Every few seconds the computer freezes (i can still move the mouse around but not do anything else). So, ctrl-alt-del, i see the winlogon.exe is using 99-100% of the cpu. Apart from that, it is using about 3-4mb of memory whereas just after i reboot it uses about 700kb. Also, though i'm not sure about this, the process priority is set to High as well as the csrss.exe process.

This afternoon I was playing Battlefront 2. Everything was fine, but then it stated to jerk badly. So i quit to windows, and as i clicked on the button, the pc reset itself with a brief blue screen of death before going to black. I discovered all of the above after the reset.
I'm still, at this moment, trying to use my pc. It is proving to be virtually impossible.

I am desperate, i've been forum hopping (with difficulty), and everybody either talks a lot of junk/implies a virus/trojan etc...

I have AntivirXP Personal Edition, Xoftspy, Spybot S&D all updated with the current definition files. I ran all three and they came back with no results.

I suspect a virus, because i have no idea what else it can be, and i have no clue what sparked it off. I have measured a great deal of self-control not including expletives in this post, I will be greatly appreciative if someone could help me fix this.

Answer:Urgent Help Needed

Well I can't picture exactly what is going on there. I have never had a problem with formatting using the XP CD, maybe you selected a wrong option somewehre, hard to say, as far as I know that's pretty independant of what is actually on the hard drive(s) that are in the computer....

Anyhow you could try making a bootdisk win98 and putting format.com and fdisk on it and just doing it that way. Windows XP shoud automatically be able to convert it durring install if you want NTFS.

If your not sure how to make a bootdisk with win98 this is what you do...

1. Create the bootable disk:
Put a floppy disk in your drive. Go to windows explorer->right click on your floppy drive (a:\) -> select format->select the check box that says "system files"->click format->click yes.

2. Add format.com and fdisk on it
Click start->find ->select c:\ ->type in the file you need->click search
(copy it to the floppy):
When you find the file you need, click copy and then paste it onto your floppy disk.

3. Fdisk(wipe out your partition)
Keep the floppy in your drive, restart and wait for it to boot until you see the a:\ prompt. (if it doesn't boot and just boots your OS, try going into the BIOS and changing the boot order so that the floppy drive is before the hard drive).
Now type fdisk and press enter->press y and then enter->select "delete non-dos partition" (or similar, sorry I havn't done it in a wh... Read more

Question: Urgent Help Needed

Holy ****, hey folks. Got a real problem. Today i booted up my Computer only to notice that it said my CPU was running at 1.2ghz, this is NOT right as it normally runs at 2080ghz (being an AMD XP 2800+)

What the hell is going on? Both Everest and DXDIAG are showing this, please help me.

I recently updated my BIOS but there were no errrors. Also, you may know if you've been following my threads that my CPU was overheating not that long ago could my BIOS have dropped the speed to 1.2ghz to 'cool' the PC down? My PSU is also not supplying enough power and so ordered a new one, which should arrive tommorow.

Will adding my new PSU set the CPU clock back to 2080ghz, god i hope so.

C'mon, need your help desperately.

:O :O :O

Answer:Urgent Help Needed

Hello,

It seems that your FSB has been lowered.... It should be 12.5 x 166 for an AMD Athlon XP 2800+.

Post a screenshot or a report of the Motherboard page to show the Front Side Bus Properties and Memory Bus Properties.

Perhaps your BIOS hasn't detected your CPU correctly. Try resetting your BIOS, or see if you can correct the FSB in BIOS.

Oh and...how many watts is your current PSU? If it's 400W that is more, than enough...

Question: Urgent fix needed

Im a landlord, i have years of Books on my CPU. never been online with it ever. Completely isolated. After I finished monthly books it suddenly went off. Shut down without shut down.... Repowered nothing, checked power strip, nothing...

Immediately grabbed it and took to repair shop. Its a very important item, has ALL data from years back... plus its October and thats 9 months of this year entered... Backed up YES.... ON the same drive... LOL Dont laugh or scold me yet....

Repair shop says the fan stopped, causing the overheating of the motherboard and the Drive will not SPIN..... He can not retrieve any data....

WHAT is your suggestion and best options for this scenario.... Im all ears.

Hundreds or thousands of hours of data at risk.... I asked about removing the platter and reinserting into another drive.. said cant b done..

Thanks

Steve
 

Answer:Urgent fix needed

My initial thought is that would have to be one heck of an overheating to kill the HD along with the more vulnerable motherboard components. Is the shop reliable?

Have you tried the HD to another computer? That would be the simplest thing to confirm that it doesn't actually spin up. It just seems like too much of a coincidence that the HD has failed along with the motherboard. If you can wait for mail order something like this will make the connection externally but internal is not difficult.

If the HD really doesn't spin up at all, I don't have any suggestions. Professional data retrieval is extremely expensive ~$1000.

Question: Urgent help needed

Dear Forum Members,
 
My computer seems to be heavily infested with something very unpleasant.  A lot (but not all) my of software is not working, or cannot be opened (e.g. Outlook) or comes up with the message "the item referred to by this shortcut cannot be accessed you may not have the appropriate permission"  I have looked at various on-line sites to find a solution, but haven't found much that addresses this problem specifically.  The things I have tried didn't deliver the desired help.  Any ideas, anyone ???  You'll have my eternal gratitude if this can be solved without major surgery (like re-installing my Windows 7).  Would it be helpful if I upgraded to Windows 10?  Or would Windows 10 become similarly infected with this bug?
 
By the way - this is a general question - if I were to upgrade, would I loose all my programs and documents currently on my laptop in the process?
 
Thank you for reading thus far.  I'm looking forward to hearing from you!  Kind regards - AndreasO
 

Answer:Urgent help needed

"...Would it be helpful if I upgraded to Windows 10?"  Upgrading to Windows 10 with your current OS having problems will probably not help solve those problems, such might simply "transfer" to your new OS.
"...if I were to upgrade, would I lose all my programs and documents currently on my laptop in the process..."
If the current OS is in good working order, then an upgrade normally does not do away with installed programs -- unless you make a few wrong choices during the upgrade/install process.  Documents - toss up, many have had no problems, some have had a few problems.
** After everything is fixed within your current OS -- before upgrading, make at least one if not two full images of your OS and data partitions onto at least one if not two external HDs **

Just an ISO file on the USB is not going to let you boot from it. You have to make a bootable USB first. You have to use something like Rufus: Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way to do that.

Hi all new here

The boss' computer has went down and this message is displayed at start up. C:\windows\system32\system missing or corrupt. Windows wont boot. I've looked around on the forum and found a few fixes but the problem is we have no recovery disk of any kind and no backup disk (ducks to avoid intense lectures). Is there anything I can do or will he need to take it to the manufacturer or place he bought it.

OS is XP SP2 if this helps but beyond that I have no other specs.

Thanks in advance if anyone can help.

ok, couple of things, take the hard drive out and attach it to another pc that is the same make and model and operating system on it, you can make the drive a slave, then copy the "system" file from that pc to the slave hard drive.

thne you can just reinsert the hard drive back in the pc and it will boot up, remember it has to be the same pc.

Question: Urgent Help Needed

I was on my laptop today on the internet and out of the blue it blue screened. It said something about _KERNEL_ but the screen was only up for a split second before the screen went black. I shut the laptop off and restarted it but after the Compaq screen, before windows even boots, I get a message in the top left hand corner that says:

A disk read error occurred.
Press ctrl + alt + delete to restart.

Anyways, I went into Bios and ran the "Primary HDD Self-Test" and it failed. I'm not really sure what I'm doing in BIOS Ill admit, but I'm pretty sure that has something to do with it. Is my hard drive dead?

The computer is a Compaq Presario if that makes a difference.

Question: Urgent help needed

Well, I installed the beta version of Windows 7 on my HP Pavilion a810n PC. It was good, but all my drivers were disabled. I went to revert back to Windows XP, since in the Boot menu it had the option now to revert to previous Windows. I went into it, and it opened the HP recovery. Now, I've had to do HP recovery twice in the past, but now, it looks way different. Now it just gives me options to go into a sort of command-promt type thing, where I pick a place and can implement commands. That's about all I can do. At one point, I typed in "FIXMBR", not knowing completely what it did. Now, when I start my computer back up, it goes into that same recovery type thing. How do I get back on Windows 7, or better yet, Windows XP? Also, I thought I should add, that in the restart thing, where it's the HP logo and at the bottom it says "press F10 for system recovery", the button no longer works, and I have to let it restart to go into recovery. I need the computer, ASAP, so the sooner you can help me, the better. Thank you in advance!

Answer:Urgent help needed

sounds like your os and recovery may be corrupted...Probably going to have to do a fresh install. If there is data you need on your computer about the only thing I can suggest(assuming you have another computer available) is to get an external hard drive enclosure. Put your drive in it, hook it up to the secondary machine and copy everything you need off of it.

I have tried to actually go back and restore manually but, it will not allow me to restore before the actual date that I did the restore.

I plugged in my headphones to see if they would work and they are not working either. I cannot manually go into my control panel because it is not picking up anything there in the sound department.

You really dont want to install 64bit in 2 gigs of ram. That is the absolute minimum. It will crawl

That being said you need to boot from the dvd not try to launch it from within an OS.

This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the folder options Control Panel.

Answer:Urgent Help Needed Please!

boot the PC and press F8 continually until the boot screen arrives, if you look at the list of choices choose the one that says 'last known configuration that worked', or probably a more certain option is go for the restore to earlier date, choose a date before you messed up the registry and that should get things running again.
As a noob there are a number of things you need to know and some you will learn, you have just demonstrated one of Windows strict unwritten laws, never change anything in the registry unless you are absolutely sure of what you are doing and then make a back up of the registry before you start so any problems can be rectified.(actually you can just back up the one key you are going to change\delete by selecting 'export' from the right click menu, save it somewhere obvious and if things dont go according to plan you have only to click the .reg file a couple of times to import the key and data back where it came from.
hope you get sorted.

I have an Iomega 120GB fire wire/usb external hdd using O/S xp home + xp proffessional. It was working fine, i have 2 computers and have been able to use it on both working fine. Usually it just does plug-n-play when i plug it in with usb and brings up the folder for the drive, but today i was sorting some files on it and then i switched it off. A while later i plugged it into my computer and it brought up its usual message "Plugging hi-speed usb device into non-hi-speed usb hub click this message to fix", but this time the hard drive did not show up in my computer and locked up my computer until i took it out of the usb port. So i went to device manager and plugged it in again it now comes up as a usb device instead of a hard drive which it usually comes up as. I tried reinstalling the driver off the disk that came with it but this had no effect . Please help, thanks

Yet again my computer gives me problems, even though this time the problem is MUCH MUCH worse.I turned on my computer today, logged onto my XP account, and then as the computer was starting-up I got a black screen with the following message:QuoteA problem has been detected and windoes has been shut down to prevent damage. If this is the first time you have seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:Check to make sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing the video adapters. Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode.... (goes on to explain how to go into safe mode).....

I would go first to Trend Online Micro (www.trendmicro.com) and do a free online scan. Then download the latest AVG files,go to safe mode and do your scan. Delete anything that remains of the virus. If it can't be deleted at least get the name.

I have a pop-up blocker but it doesn't block those pop-ups. Also, my computer will go VERY slowly, programs will take SO long to load and the computer will just be over all slow. Also, I get these messages that say "server busy" please try again. I can't ever get rid of these messages, the only way they go away is if I click them about 10 times then they turn into pop-ups.I've scanned my computer for viruses and spyware and adware and it won't get fixed.HELP!?

Hi, I'm running Vista home premium 64 bit with the latest SP.

I just installed an old game (Sniper Elite) and after installation it asked for a reboot. I did this and got the message that windows couldn't start, this could be down to a change recently made etc etc.

It then said to fix it

1- insert windows disk and reboot
2- select language and click next
3- Choose repair my computer

I did this but when I clicked repair my computer it didn't show any OS in the box to repair! It just says "If you did not see your OS in the list, click load drivers to load drivers for your hard disk"

I have no idea what to do now, please help me!

Thanks

Answer:Urgent help needed please

If you did not see your OS in the list, click load drivers to load drivers for your hard diskc



If you do not see Vista, then hit the tab to load the drivers; Vista will show up and you can then select it.

Question: Urgent Help Needed

Hi Guys, I hope to God that you's can help.

Heres the story, my computer out of the blue has just stopped loading. I will describe what is happening:
I will turn on the computer and it will load normally past all the BIOS stuff - then it will begin a 'chkdsk c:' saying that it needs to check this 'NTFS' file for consistancy.
It is always succesful with this check and then moves onto the the classic windows xp loading screen. That works fine then, BANG, it stops loading.... I don't think it is freezing as I can still move the mouse.
If I leave it for long enough it will come up with a diologue box saying something along the lines of 'Windows needs to be activated'. And this does not allow me to get past this blue laoding screen.
I then restart the comp, and it just goes through the same process.
Other info:
I CANNOT access SAFE MODE! It takes me to a log in menu saying my name, Phil and Administrator and if I click any of them I encounter this message 'Windows needs to be activated'.
I checked my BIOS page and posted the info on another forum (which wasn't too helpful if I do say so myself) and they said nothing with out of the ordinary with temperature etc.
If this helps, I did the day before these problems started when I turned on my comp it said there was no keyboard plugged in, this was a USB keyboard so I just swapped it for a old keyboard which wored a treat.
Also I had some minor problems with my monitor rando... Read more

Answer:Urgent Help Needed

Is this a new(ish) PC, OR have you recently loaded Windows ??? IF so Windows needs to be activated via Microsoft website, or it wont work after about 28 days from loading.
Am sure someone here can help if this is not the problem.....Good luck....

Right firstly my laptop disk drive doesn't work so a factory restore is out of the question.

Disk checker was running and my laptop shut off midway through, since then my laptop hasn't been working because windows explorer is not responding. Safe mode works perfectly fine.

What could be the problem and how should I resolve it?

Answer:urgent help needed

Before anything else I would try running Disc Checker in safe mode which I guess you have.

Other than that, windows restore via the windows CD comes to my mind. I believe there are better options out there though which I'm not aware of.
