Scanning photos

Recommended Posts

I have scanned some old photos using HP Photosmart. When i view them in the photosmart viewer they have the file extension .bmp which is suitable for uploading to photobucket. However i can't seem to save them to any file properly and they end up with a blank icon that the computer fails to recognise and the extension .pvm which photobucket does not recognise. What am i doing wrong?

When saving the file using the scanner I have at work I had a similar problem. It always wanted to save the file as a .png file which I could not read on my computers at home. I found out by looking around a bit that when I was saving the files I had the option of saving them as a .jpg image instead of a .png image. That quickly solved my problems.

 

Microsoft paint should recognize a .bmp image, have you tried that?

If you open a .bmp with MS paint you have the option to then save it as a .jpg which pretty much keeps the quality of the .bmp but reduces the file size

I'm not sure as I have it with my Office Pro package and I think it is part of office home as well. You should be able to find out with a quick web search. If not available for free check on some of the Torrent sites, I'm sure one of them will have it.

MS Paint comes as standard with the Windows installation CD, if you still have the cd and havent installed MS Paint already then go to:

 

Add/Remove Programs

 

Add remove windows components (something like that)

 

The tick all the boxes of things that are not installed

 

You will need the disk to install them all though.

 

 

As for downloading it, i don't think you can, I have tried before.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
