A friend sent me some photos by E-mail and i downloaded them and when i click on them they all opened. But the ones i downloaded from the internet will not open. I can scan a photo with my scaner and they will open. But any photos i download from the enternet will not open. This is the first time i have tryed to use the windows photo gallery and i am not a happy camper at all. I new i should not have bought and acer and should have stayed with a Dell. Can you please help me with this. Thank You. My E-mail address is Elvistlc@aol.com

Problem: I have an image on the desktop or some other folder and I cannot view it or open it. It does not matter if I double click on the icon or right click and select preview or "open with" and "Windows Photo Gallery". It doesn't matter if it is a jpg, bmp, png, gif or some other image file format I'm still unable to open the image. If I right click and edit the file it opens up in my image editor. File association works as I can open pictures in other locations. The problem is the same if I have a shortcut to an image. I have Windows Vista SP1 installed.

Solution: If any Internet shortcut has an URL with 260 characters or more you will find that you cannot open any picture file in that folder with Windows Photo Gallery. Right click on any shortcut and on the Web Document tab you find the URL. When you delete or move this shortcut to another folder it will work again. If you have hard to find the shortcut or shortcuts you can create a folder and move half of the shortcuts to that folder and then try to double click on the image again and that way isolate the problem.

There is obviously a bug in Windows Photo Gallery and an alternative solution is to change the default application for viewing your photos.

Depending on the type of file you are downloading, If its a Jpeg. Windows Fax & Picture viewer should open it.

Check the file extension that you downloaded and verify it is an Image file i.e (bmp, tiff, jpeg, gif)... Then, right click that file, choose properties and see Which program opens it.

If there isnt a default setup Click on Change...and choose Windows Fax & Picture ViewerI have a new Acer - 502fd15.jpg

Can't scan with HP Photosmart C5280 with Windows Vista OS. Printing is ok.


Hi,

Windows Vista provides a basic set of scanning drivers, also referred to as Windows Image Aquisition (WIA) drivers, that you can use as an alternative to scan a document when you can not scan using the HP drivers.

  1. Click the Windows Vista (c01319360.gif ) icon, click All Programs , and then click Windows Photo Gallery .
  2. Click File , and then click Import From Camera or Scanner .
  3. Click Import , and then click Scan .

I have had spooler problems and lost the HP Solutions Center.


Hi,
I'm not sure exactly what you have tried yet, but maybe type in Services in the Vista search box and open Services. Scroll down to Print Spooler and right click on it. Restart the Spooler Service.

Also, many people have had scanning problems when using all-in-one software in Vista. I usually recommend this:

The all in one solution software you used in XP doesn't work fully with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (eg HP C3180) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.

I can't load new pics onto Windows Vista Photo Gallery anymore...


I finally figured it out. Somehow I had messed with the Autoplay settings uploading pics the last time I guess. Anyways, if you experience this problem, check this out first and see if it fixes it for you before you do anything else:

gl_arrow_down_static.gif What if the import dialog box doesn't appear? If the dialog box prompting you to import your pictures doesn't appear when you connect the camera to your computer, AutoPlay might be turned off. You can import your pictures using Windows Photo Gallery instead. Here's how:
1. Open Windows Photo Gallery by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Photo Gallery.
2. On the toolbar, click File, and then click Import from Camera or Scanner.
3. In the Import Pictures and Videos dialog box, choose your camera from the list of devices, and then click Import.
gl_alert_vert.png gl_icon_tip.png If you prefer, you can turn on AutoPlay or set AutoPlay to automatically import pictures from a digital camera. For more information, see Change AutoPlay Settings. gl_alert_vert.png gl_alert_bg_tip.png
