All of a sudden when I send photo's via email they say that they cant open it because it is on skydrive. How do I get rid of it to sole this?

You have to enable privacy settings in SkyDrive for the pics you want to share with others. They should be able to view them once you do that.

How to digitally sign and fax an electronic document

There are wide-spread situations when a just received contract via fax internet service is supposed to be signed and faxed back. Or there's an electronic document needed to be printed on paper, hand-signed, then scanned and sent by fax. That process is time consuming and returns users to paperwork that they are trying so hard to avoid.
Popfax is working hard to achieve that perfect paperless fax service and now it is eliminating paper from the loop by providing its users with incorporated Digital signature tool that allows capturing signature directly on the electronic document without requiring paper or ink.

How to digitally sign a fax online

The first step is to create a digital image of a signature - there are multiple ways of doing that:

Option #1. Upload signature
1. Scan signature using a scanner device or take a photo using a smartphone or tablet.
2. Save the image file in one of the following formats: JPG, PNG, GIF and max file size of 8MB.
3. Upload the saved signature file to Popfax account.

Option #2. Draw signature
The draw feature allows user to draw his signature directly in the Popfax interface.

Option #3. Type signature
User can type his name and/or surname in one of 4 available fonts and use it as signature for documents and faxes signing.

Option #4. Upload signature by email
Upload signature by sending an email with an image attached to from the email address registered in the Popfax account. Subject and Body of the email can be empty.
Signature Editor allows to crop, rotate and adjust threshold of the created signature image.

The second step involves putting the e-signature image into the document. Also it is possible to insert the Date and as free text the company details like: name, address, contact phone number, email, etc.

The last step is sending the Signed document by fax by clicking on "Save and send by fax".

With three different versions of Windows being used now, you’ll probably find yourself trying to share files or printers between them. Today we take a look at how to share files and printers between Vista and Windows 7 machines.
In this example we are on a basic home network using Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit version) and Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 (32-bit version).
Set Windows 7 Share Settings
On the Windows 7 machine we need to set up a few things in Advanced Sharing Settings. First type network and sharing center into the search box in the Start Menu and hit Enter.
Then click on Change advanced sharing settings…
Now in Advanced Sharing Settings, make sure to turn on network discovery, file and printer sharing, and public folder sharing. Make sure these are enabled in both the Home or work and Public profiles.
Depending on your setup, you might want to turn off password protected sharing. Other wise you’ll need to enter the password for each machine in, which isn’t that big of a deal. Turning it off while you’re setting it up makes things a bit easier though by saving a step.
Set Vista Share Settings
On the Vista machine we need to double check and make sure it’s sharing settings are ready to go. Right-click on Network and choose Properties.
The Network and Sharing Center opens up. Under Sharing and Discovery we need to turn on File Sharing, Public Folder Sharing, and Network Discovery.
Also on the Vista machine you might want to turn off password protected sharing … but it’s completely up to you.
Share Files Windows 7 View
Now that we have the correct Settings On each machine, it’s time to put it to the test. Open up Network on the Windows 7 machine, and you should see all of the machines on the network. The Vista machine in this example is VISTAGEEK-PC.
There was no need to enter a password to access the Vista machine because password protection is turned off. But now you can go through and see the User Shared folders. In this example both public and Users directories are shared.
Share Files Vista View
Now on the Vista computer, double click on Network and you should see the Windows 7 machine (where in this instance it’s MYSTICGEEK-PC).
I enabled password protection on the Windows 7 machine so we can take a look at the login screen that will be displayed before connecting.
Then you’ll see the folders and devices that are shared. Here you can see the HP printer connected to the Windows 7 machine is available.
And you can continue browsing through all available shared folders and files.
Printer Sharing
As we showed above, you can see the printer connected to Windows 7. Let’s make sure we can connect to it and print a test document. In Vista click on the Start menu and type printers into the search box and hit Enter.
Right-click on the shared printer and select Properties.
Under the General tab click on the Print Test Page button.
The following message is displayed while the test page prints out on the printer connected to your Windows 7 machine.
Another test you might want to perform is opening a test document and making sure you can print that to the Windows 7 printer.
Provided everything prints out successfully you might want to make it the default printer.
If your machines aren’t able to see each other or the printer isn’t working…here are a few steps you might want to use to determine where the problem is.
Double check to make sure Network Discovery and File and Print Sharing is enabled on both machines as shown above.
In this example both machines are connected to a Belkin home wireless router and IP addresses are dynamically assigned. If you are using Static addresses make sure you can ping the IP address of each computer. If not, double check the assigned IP Address and cabling of each computer…
If the printer isn’t working, double check to make sure you have the latest drivers for each OS installed.

Unable to like or share in fb

Facebook's "Like" function allows you to express support or enjoyment for the posts your friends share to the news feed or your wall.

Try scrolling through your news feed or navigating to the page belonging to the person who shared the post if you have difficulty finding it. Click the "Like" link, located below the shared post. You will see a message saying "You like this" under the link once the "like" has been successfully submitted. Share Articles on Facebook b> Facebook is increasingly used as a news source by its millions of users. Facebook friends and fans receive and share news of interest through status updates and links to outside articles. Sharing articles on Facebook is easy.

This button may appear as "Like," "Recommend" or "Share on Facebook." Once you click it, a new box will open. Log in to Facebook if you have not already done so. Click "Post to Profile," then "Post," to share the article on your wall. b> Share Using Direct Message b> Click "Messages" from the left-hand column of Facebook. Select "+New Message" near the top of the page. Type the name of the person to whom you are sending the article. Add your message, and paste the link. Click "Send." Hope this helps.

Just got new HP laptop and i'd like to transfer photo's and some files from my old HP desk top computer. What do I need to do this?

If the old computer still works, see the following. Otherwise look for the * for a solution further below. If the old desktop has Windows XP SP3 or newer, you can use the easy transfer wizard. It is included in Windows 7.

If the old desktop has a network connection, you can use an ethernet switch to create a network to share files. Once both computers recognize the switch, set up a network. If you have Windows 7 on one computer and do not have it on the other, do not use the Homegroup network. This may come up automatically; otherwise, use the Network Control Panel and add a network. Start the Easy Transfer Wizard and set this computer as the new computer. There may be an option to get the Transfer Wizard to copy and install to the old computer. Note the code for the Easy Transfer Wizard. Then install the Windows Easy Transfer Wizard on the old computer and launch it. Set this computer as the old computer. Use the code given in on the first computer to synch the transfer. Go through the settings to select the files to transfer and then start the transfer. Prepare to wait a while for the transfer.

If you can't use the Easy Transfer Wizard, set the hard drive on one computer to Share (click Computer (My Computer) and right click on the hard drive and select Properties. Then choose the Sharing tab. Enable Sharing by clicking the Share button.) On the other computer, map to a network drive and locate the Shared drive. Drag and drop the files to the new computer.

If you already have a network connection to a cable or DSL router, you will be asked about "New network found" and to define it. Make sure to make it the home network on both computers. (If you were directly connected to a cable or DSL modem, then you will again get this question. Note the switch will not let your computers talk to the outside network without a router though.)

(Alternatively, use a cross-over ethernet cable with the direct cable networking option.)

Other options: use the Microsoft Easy Transfer Wizard to put the photos and files on a DVD, external hard drive or flash drive with sufficient capacity. You may need to download and install this program to the old computer. For the optical drive option, you need a DVD-RW drive on the desktop and a DVD reader (minimum) on the laptop. (You can use an external optical drive, if you have one.) Another option is a USB file transfer device. Some of these come with the Easy Transfer Wizard on their install disc.

*If the old computer will not turn on, take the hard drive out of the computer and use a USB to IDE/SATA adapter. Follow the directions for the device and attach it to a USB port on the laptop. See if the drive mounts (is listed when you open the Computer File Explorer). Then drag and drop the files from one drive to another.

Note you may need to change the owner of the files on the new computer. (This doesn't apply with the Easy Transfer Wizard if the old user is made equivalent to the new user in the setup of the wizard.) To change the owner, right click on the file in the File Explorer and choose the Security tab. Select the Advanced settings.

I hope this helps.

YAHOO IM 9 and 10. When i have the chat window open to a specific friend the webcam function is not avaiable for use, or the photo share option. Then others it is fully functional. Is there a problem if...

PhotoSharing is possible with Yahoo IM 8,9 and 10
About Webcam sharing, if you are using Yahoo 10 and other person is using yahoo 9 or 8, the Video call will not work since Yahoo 10 will check for version compatibility

you can bypass this by asking the other person to click on the option, View Webcam, this will initiate an invitation sent to you, you can accept it and the other person can see you. vice versa you can click on view webcam and the other person has to accept.

When I send an image in outlook express, it is received by others as a red x.

Today's high resolution digital cameras produce multi Megabyte photos. These are great for printing but cause a heavy burden when sending over the Internet.

Shrink Pic allows you to send dozens of photos as email attachments - quickly and with no effort at all!

All you need to do is install Shrink Pic. It automatically detects when you're sending large photo files and compresses them in the background.

There's no setup, no operating instructions, nothing, nada. Just send your photos normally and Shrink Pic takes care of shrinking them.

Also, make sure you get no errors when sending out the email in outlook express.

pay attention to where they are saved to when you download them from the camera. if you cant find them go to start, then search and type in *.jpg, this will find any and all photos on your computer. once you find them, right click and go to properties and it will tell you where the are located. once you have them, just email them as attachments in the standard way.
