Have you seen this looks pretty legit and you said file sizes vary from 50-70 mb and that one is 76.

thanks Loki - I had actually seen that - it eventually leads to

5277  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Need to d'load unavailable soft - but where is safe? on: June 17, 2009, 06:07:47 AM
I need to download an older software (Photoshop 5.5)
I have a lisence/key for it (even have it registered with Adobe)
but it's no longer 'available' and I somehow have managed to lose both original and copy CDs embarassed

Problems
  • I'm completely ignorant of this kind of thing
  • I dont know who to trust
  • dont know if download is a trial or not (downloads seem to vary between 50 and 70MB roughly which I presume is related to trial but dont even know which is larger)

The best I could find was http://www.brothersoft.co...dobe-photoshop-59857.html
MacAfee says
In our tests, we found a small fraction of downloads on this site that some people consider adware or other potentially unwanted programs.
which sounds safe enough, but I dont know if it's just a trial

then there's something like this
http://rapidlibrary.com/i...obe+photoshop5+5+download
which is presumably much more dubious(?) but at least it says that it's a full version . .

Anyone got any tips?

since carol and nudone are both in the UK, and gothic+della are in belgium for the next 2 months where I know he wants to visit, i think Baby Cody's first itinerary will be:
Me -> Nudone -> Carol -> Gothic

Those who want to host him next speak up.

how about from Belgium to Germany? (Me I mean - and surely there'll be others here)

I had to really use TI#11 lately - I mean do a restore of C drive smiley and it worked - gotta say I was very relieved - I find the whole new install thing a total (and very time consuming) pain.
They do have a reputation of doing a lot of 'beta-testing' post-release

With version 11 they offered an upgrade price from older versions (back at least to version 7), so, if that policy continues, a purchase option could be to try pick up an older free version somewhere and get an upgrade

I think the best would be to have two separate groups for raster (called i.e. "photo editor") od vector graphics.

absolutely, unless they've changed directions drastically lately

Hah, funnily enough, further down the list
> BEST FREE VECTOR GRAPHICS PROGRAM
> Inkscape - great open source vector graphics editor, a free alternative to the expensive Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw.

no alternatives offered smiley

have you tried MouseAltTab available at WEP's page http://wep.dcmembers.com/
here's the AHK http://wep.dcmembers.com/malttab.ahk (also available as exe there)

it has #1 & 5 on your list. Also shows icons.
#5 (sorting) only on available fields = windows & exe names
I dont know what "Sticky Alttab mode" is

Overall I would really like to consider InfoQube as a tool, however if the calender and scheduling integration requires Outlook for functionality that is a difficulty for that app.

I never said that. No-one said that. That is not the case smiley

(edit] apologies, that was a bit brief - calender and scheduling integration does not require Outlook. I believe the plan is to synch with Outlook and with Google Calendar, and as I say portable things (that I know nothing about) [/edit]
5290  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Good tool to batch edit EXIF date/time data? on: June 06, 2009, 03:55:31 PM
this one http://jpgtime.learsy.com/ - the name isn't quite clear from the site
Time Stamp Modifier for JPEG Files

The program enables to set the file time stamp (i.e. date and time) from the EXIF date/time and also enables to shift the time stamp of multiple files.
...

It also enables to select multiple files in a list and shift their date/time by a time slice - by single click you can increase/decrease seconds, minutes, hours, days, months or years.
-
I've just used  it to change 'modified date' to time photo was taken via Exif data - worked very nicely -  I believe it should do what you're looking for easily as well (portable, donationware)

you guys must have superwide screens :\
oh,
I didnt  have to scroll sideways earlier - maybe that's a disadvantage of tables tellme ? (if so, shoot me Paul..)
Actually,
it looks like the tables keep the width of the largest image in the table . . I suppose a solution would be to thumbnail the images embarassed

one minor comment re display:
quotes use a smaller font size which makes them more difficult to read - minor as I say these days cause I just zoom the page. Another possible option for future posts would be to use table:-  [table][/table]

IQ is most probably InfoQube - the app formerly known as SQLNotes -
I was going to write a spiel about it but see you mention it . .
actually I had it already written & then saw your mention of it; but I may as well post it anyways!

InfoQube / IQ was formerly known as SQLNotes -
large thread here at DC and home is here. I'm not sure why integration with something (outlook) should put you off - it's just a bonus for those who do want it.

It's still in beta (completely stable though - been using it over a year now and have never lost any info) - pros and cons - e.g. pro: you can influence the development, request features; e.g. con for you: calander not fully integrated with 'PIM' side yet.

Using the Calendar is safe, only thing to keep in mind is that appts must be entered / modified only in the Calendar and not in a grid. Apart from that, it is usable, including alarms and recurring events. No need to redo things when it gets updated.

It's got a learning curve (also because the UI tends to get updated after other changes) but very worthwhile IMO. I believe he has ambitous plans for the calendar but I dont use it at all myself so cant really comment on it.

5298  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Looking for: Scan and convert to PDF, but simple on: June 02, 2009, 05:15:25 PM

they have a portable version so might be easy to try out . .

well I had reson to try this out myself tonight and it's far from single click and there's no options to email - but it looks good for creating multi-page PDFs using scanner or importing images. Very basic but works well at what it does (no resizing or cropping of images.)
5299  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Buying/installing/experiencing Adobe - PIA on: June 02, 2009, 10:19:34 AM
I thought I should clarify the install process - it had a list of 6 or 7 installs - some seemed probably irrelevant (media player, adobe air) but I decided to chance leaving it at default.
MyUninstaller (NirSoft) lists 36 installs smiley Some programmes have two installs in different locations (Program files & Common files or different parts of the registry). This might not be a bad thing - maybe it makes it easier to modify aspects of the programme via updates.

Also there was something funny about the download - oh yes, I could only use Internet Explorer tellme - these days!!
I dont have noscript running but it wouldnt work in FF and they had very firmly warned beforehand to preferably use IE

Ironically, considering their favouring of IE, the download came in 7z format, that tickled me smiley
