Question about Adobe Photoshop 7.0 for PC

1 Answer

Can't get the menu tools to work.

When I grab a tool and place it on the picture (such as the blur tool), the tool is visible but will not function. Should I uninstall the software and reinstall. I purchased the software over a year ago and haven't been able to use it.

Don't install just yet. Before you install Adobe products, there's a way to delete the applications basic preferences to set it back to like-new install.
firt up, lets try some "Tool Options" that might not be set.
Before we start, go to the Edit menu and down to Preferences and across to Displays & Cursors. In here set 'Painting Cursors' to "Brush Size" - this will show you the area your tool will affect on application.
Now, select the tool you want to use, in this case I'll use Blur tool as it's the one you stated, and up the top of the screen you'll see the tool's options that can be set. Select an appropriate brush size, (if it's too small you'll not see the effect) and also, set the "Strength" - this is the intensity or quantity of the tool that will be applied in each pass, for the hell of it, set it too 100% so you can certainly see the effect to start with, if it's too much, go Ctrl+Z to undo and change it to do again.
Good luck and please let us know how it went. Don't forget to rate.

I have a 2003 trailblazer and i bought a fob and it does not work after programing Everything thing works on my truck but the fob. Any ideas?


How was it programmed ? Was a scan tool used ?
Program All Key Fobs
To complete this programming operation, all keyless entry transmitters associated with the vehicle must be available for programming. Once placed into program mode, all previously programmed transmitters will be erased from memory upon the receipt of the programming signal from the first transmitter.
  1. Close the lift gate.
  2. Ignition ON, access the scan tool Lift gate Module Setup menu and select Program All Key Fobs.
  3. Follow the scan tool on screen instructions in order to program the transmitters. Select "Start" on the scan tool to enter the program mode.
  4. As each transmitter is successfully programmed, the scan tool will show how many transmitters have been placed into memory.
  5. When all transmitters are programmed, exit the program mode by selecting "Stop" on the scan tool. The vehicle will not respond to the transmitters until the program mode is exited.
  6. Operate the transmitter functions in order to verify correct system operation.
Program Individual Key Fob
If there are less than four keyless entry transmitters programmed to the vehicle, an individual fob transmitter can be added. This method will not erase previously programmed transmitters from memory.
  1. Close the lift gate.
  2. Ignition ON, access the scan tool Lift gate Module Setup menu and select Program Individual Key Fob.
  3. Select "Program additional Key Fob" on the scan tool.
  4. Follow the scan tool on screen instructions in order to program the transmitter.
  5. Operate the transmitter functions in order to verify correct system operation.

Why do I get blurry pictures on screen even when I'm focusing.


Go to MENU. Then TOOLS. Make sure Motion Detection is in AUTO.
If that is on AUTO then Put the camera on a hard surface (like tripod) and focus and see if image is still blurry. Lastly, it is difficult to focus in some conditions. Move the focus point, you can click on the screen to change it. Blur can be caused by: long exposures, camera motion during photograph, bad conditions unable to focus.

The focus routine in this camera gets confused often. It can be frustration. It will only be in focus when it is GREEN before you shoot and the camera is not shaking. At night it can take great night shots with a TRIPOD and Exposure set to -1 to -2.

How do you download pictures from phone to computer


Hi Lalisa,
To get your pictures or any other data from your phone to your computer or vice versa, get a USB cable.
Connect it between your phone and pc. If you are asked to select what you want to do, select 'mass storage'.
Then your phone would be visible to your pc as an external storage device.
Then you can access the phone, and copy the picture to your pc.
Alternatively, if your phone and pc are bluetooth enabled, switch on the pc's blue tooth, and that of your phone.
Then from your pc's bluetooth menu(if you dont know how to access the menu, just type bluetooth menu it the start tool bar), pair the computer with your phone.
Then after pairing, send the pictures via bluetooth from your phone to the pc.

I hope that was helpful? If it was I would appreciate you rating this answer.
Have a wonderful day.

What is the proper tool to remove rear wheel cassette from specialized CrossTrail to replace a spoke?


You need a freewheel/cassette removal tool. Here's a link to Park Tools page (great quality tools at reasonable prices) http://www.parktool.com/category/freewheel-cassette There are several different types to fit different styles. My usual method is to remove the quick release skewer, place the tool on the freewheel/cassette, put the skewer back on to hold the tool in place (skewer should be just a little loose). Put the tool side of the wheel down and clamp it in a vise. Then grab the wheel with your hands and twist it sharply (not slow and steady) counter-clockwise. Good luck, Vote if you found this helpful. Al K

I love my camera, but most of my pictures turn out blurry in places, unless the subject is standing perfectly still.


Hi. When parts of the subject are moving it is normal for the subject to tend to be be blurred in those places. Blurring is minimised if you take pictures in bright light because the 'exposure' (the time needed for the sensor to collect enough light to take the picture) is less. Also the 'sensitivity' of the sensor can be increased by reducing the ISO setting in the menu so that the sensor needs less time to take the picture. However ISO settings higher than 200 tend to more and more make the image a bit blotchy. The 'aperture' is also relevant and F2 (wide open) lets in more light than say F5.6 (narrower), so helps to reduce blurring too. Mainly you rely on bright light to minimise blurring if the subject moves, but there is also a 'sports' scene mode which might help. Indoors, you more often need to use Flash to get a good picture by providing more light, but flash does not usually reach far enough to have much effect out of doors, unless the subject is close by. In 'auto' mode the settings look after themselves but have a good look at the Instruction Manual and experiment with 'manual' settings to find out how the camera works and read a few beginner's aricles to make things more interesting. Most of all have fun! Regards

Canon Power shot 570 IS problem


Check to see if your camera is in Macro mode. This may cause blur. Also hit your function/set button to see if it is in digital macro mode.

Make sure your lens is clean.

Make sure you are set to automatic mode and zoomed all the way out. There are several things that may cause blur, the most of which is camera shake. Make sure your Image Stabilization is turned on. If it is, you will see a little hand in the bottom right corner of the LCD screen.

If it's not on, turn it on in the setup (tools) menu.

If your shutter speed is slow, this will cause image blur, but in auto mode, you won't have to worry about the shutter speed, it will be set automatically.

Hope this helps.

Slice tool is more for making webpage, not for cut and paste.
