    It may be more of a windows hing than a photoshop thing.

    if i have a program open like photoshop or publisher and i want to
    open/insert a photo i open click OPEN and i get a popup of my folder full of photos on the desktop, but its always a list of the photos. is there anyway to have it open that photo folder with a thumbnail view as the defaut so i don't have to go change it to thumbnail every single time. i am editing hundreds of photos and it's a huge Pain I.T.A. to do this manually every time. thnx a pc win XP

    Are you using a PC or Mac? If using Windows OS, by saying "when I open the folder to find a folder" do you mean open a folder in Windows Explorer or from within Photoshop?

Your best bet is to use the built-in File Browser. It has 2 panes: 1 is a directory tree and the other is a thumbnail view of folder contents. I know Photoshop has this and would expect that Publisher has the same. So instead of going to File>Open, use the File Browser which is usually located near the top right-hand side of the toolbar within the application. Double-click a thumbnail to open the file.

There might be a special command within the application or a Windows registry setting that would enable a default thumbnail view in the Open dialog box, but I don't know of one off hand.

How do I transfer contents of one file from another both on picasa

You highlight all the photos in one folder (cntrl + A is an easy way to do this), then click and drag that group to the desired folder icon shown on the folder views on the left.
Note: to click and drag the group, you can click and drag any single photo IN the group, the rest of the pictures will come along.
You may have to scroll the folder list on the left to find the folder you want to move the pics to.
I used the term folder for what you call 'file'. To me, file can also mean an individual item in a folder, so I just want to be clear.

Photoshop automate-batch rename

I think Photoshop renamed all pictures using the wrong extension. If you can open images with Windows Fax Viewer, they should work in Photoshop too. Check the extension of the photos, they should be JPEG with a .jpg extension. If not, try to rename them using the .jpg at end of the file name. I would be very surprised if Photoshop cannot recognize photos that Windows can. Tell me if this works because ther is another way but I need to know what extension it is currently.

Is there a way to view pictures from my iphone on itunes without my iphone connected

They should be in your iTunes folder. If you open iTunes they will be in the library under photos. If they are not there, you can look for them in the iTunes folder. The location of the folder depends on the operating system you are using. If it is a windows version, look for it in the user file, then open the picture folder. There should be a folder titled iPhone Photo Cache. The easy way to check is to right click on the folder and look for the size. If it is tiny, 30 KB or something, it is empty. If it is large, several MB or even GB, the photos are in there and you can recover them.

Download Photo from camera to computer

Once you have the camera plugged into the USB port it should install. You should get a windows pop up asking you what to do with it, one choice will be to download (this will bring up step by step instructions). If this does not pop up, double click on Computer, then the drive letter for the camera. There is a folder there called DCIM, double click on it. All your pictures should be in this folder. Select the first phone then scroll to the last photo, hold the shift key down and select the last photo. Now hold the control and C key down to copy. Open a new folder on the C drive and then hold the control and V key down for paste. You have now copied your photos to the computer.

Sometimes the DCIM folder is in a different folder (olympus may be that case), if so look for a folder called olympus or something like that, then look for the DCIM folder here.

Hope this helps

How do I remove a tumbnail from a photo?

Once you've added you're photos, you can set a different photo to act as thumbnail (the programme automatically chooses the first photo/slide, indicated by a little green ticked box sign).
To change the thumbnail to a different photo, highlight the photo you want as thumbnail by clicking it - the frame will change to yellow - and then click on the green ticked box command ("Set Thumbnail") at the top of the window.
You cannot alltogether delete the thumbnail, because every slide show you create needs to have a thumbnail to link the slide show to the menu screen at the start of your DVD. So, on your menu screen there will always be at least one thumbnail. (The black thumbnail that appears in the middle of your screen when you first open the programme, is a "place holder". It needs to be there and it cannot be deleted. Once you've created a slide show, it will be replaced with the photo you have chosen to be the thumbnail. Every time you create a new slide show, a new thumbnail will be added to your menu screen. The position of thumbnails can be changed, using the second ("Edit") Tab.

You will find a User's Guide on the install disc. It can be accessed by inserting the install disc and clicking on the relevant link, or you can right click on your CD/DVD drive (in "My Computer") and then click on "Explore" to look for it on the install disc - it's a pdf file.

Corel Paintshop Pro Photo Xl

I have the same problem with Corel Paintshop Pro Photo X2 but I uninstall the program, do a disk clean up then delete internet cookies and delete the corel folder under
c:/progam files/corel
and also another corel folder under
c:/ Documents and Settings/All Users/Application Data/Corel
You will have to go to tools then folder options and then press the view tab to choose "Show hidden files and folders" because the "Application Data" folder is hidden. I then do a file clean up with Uniblue speed up my pc. Last but not least I reinstall the program. This will work only if I am disconnected and stay disconnected from the internet.If you connect to the internet you have to do the same process over again. I know this is alot of work but I really enjoy the program and its the only way I could use it. I have not found any fix yet but I hope this helps.
