Living Room / digital photo frame & my pictures
« on: September 15, 2008, 02:28 AM »

Hello,

I bought a digital photo frame, with the following specs:

7"  16 x 9 display

Most of my pictures are shoot with a sony DSC-T100, @ 3264 x 2448

My question is what is the best way to put the pictures on my USB flash and connect it to the digital frame?

If I put them as they are they are displayed stretched and occupy unneeded space in the 1GB usb flash that I devoted to the digital frame.

For best display do I have to crop them or change pixels or photo's dimensions?

I mostly use compupic for resizing and the relevant window is like this:

Living Room / Philips Flat TV 20"
« on: June 16, 2008, 03:54 AM »
Hello. At my work I have a crappy ViewSonic 17''

At my home I have a Philips Flat TV 20", specifications here



Please advise how this TV will stand as office computer monitor (i.e. used for creating documents, sending emails & faxes, browsing and occasionally picture editing)

Or maybe its not worth it as office monitor?

Thanks :)

General Software Discussion / Easy photo editor
« on: January 15, 2008, 04:58 AM »
Hello. I was using "Microsoft Digital Image Pro" for many years, which mainly consisted from latest version of PictureIt! and a nice photo gallery. Now the product has been discontinued for more than a year and many of its features are included in some vista versions.

I am looking for a similar simple but powerful photo editor for basic digital image tasks, like crop, resize, change hue, saturation, fix red eye etc

The program that I am looking for should be easy and not to have to go through books to learn even the basic functions, so it has to be other than photoshop/paint shop pro.

I am currently trialling Ulead's Photoimpact, but I am looking for others, thanks for any suggestions

Find And Run Robot / plugin problems
« on: November 21, 2007, 02:43 AM »
For some time my plugins do not work any more, especially the keyboard shortcuts, like for example "loc" for locate, as per the snapshot

Find And Run Robot / aliases
« on: May 21, 2007, 05:07 AM »
Hello, can you post me a link on how to create my own aliases, for example "google I am feeling lucky" & "google images"

Also I think there is a small bug: if I launch farr and decide to exit (without launching anything) by pressing Alt+F4, farr exits but always by launching one item from the results list (not necessarily the first).

If I exit farr by heating Esc twice, above is not reproduced.

Mini-Reviews by Members / Avafind mini review

Avafind mini review by babis, upon brotherS request

The main window launches by hitting shift & escape instantly. Then by start typing the second letter the program starts to present results, which can appear in 2 views, detailed showing filename, size and location and basic showing only filename, as the following snaps. The main results window offers some nice options when right-click on a result and anytime if choose Explorer Options it will show you all the typical explorer options. All operations of Avafind can be done through keyboard, no need for using mouse at anytime.

Avafind remembers your choice, this means that if I type word and then decide to launch the winword.exe from the results (by pressing enter), then the next time when I type word, the winword.exe will be highlighted and by pressing the tab it will bring you directly at the result selected at the previous similar search string.

http://img149.imageshack.us/img149/4616/snap042gx3.png


This is a very big advantage over similar programs, as the first time you have to scroll to the list of first results until find the target but then it will remember choice and drive you directly to the result previously selected, similarly to find and run robot (but not quite, as in farr you don’t have to press tab and also the desired result appears from the first or second letter typed)

The main advantage of Avafind however is the index-on-the-fly. It’s the Scout Bot on the upper right corner where all the in/out files are displayed (similarly to recent documents from the windows start menu but more extended). There you have some options by rightclicking, such as browse folder (inside ava’s main window, copy path, create new folder and others as shown on the screen shot). An important option is to choose to block file or folder from being displayed to the Scout Bot, which also applies and to the main panel of results (for example I always exclude the the prefetch directory from the searhc results).

Then comes My Picks, located at the bottom right; it’s a favorites section simplified where you can add files/folders by drag and drop, otherwise files/folders will be added according to launch history, hierarchically. By right-click on a file, you can remove it from the Picks.

Other features of Avafind are the toolbar buttons: Music, Videos, Pictures, Programs, Documents and Downloads, showing all your audio, video, image etc files accordingly (I never use these buttons btw).

Also Avafind can be used as folder size program (like treesizepro, foldersizes etc). For example just type am fil (part name of the program files, to show that you don’t have to type whole paths or start from the beginning of path) and the program files folder is displayed. Then choose arrange results by size and you have, the folders’ sizes feature, missing from a typical windows installation.

The program have not been updated from 2003 and the development seems abandoned but even 4 years old, it excels as simple but very powerful file finder

Edited reason forgotten to add  home page http://www.think-les...do-more.com/avafind/ and advanced features

Here is a link to a another review and mini comparison with locate. Note that after the trial period ends, Ava still seal searches but the advanced features are disabled.
