    YouTube

    When I first was introduced to YouTube I created a few channels, but now I realise that wasn't such a good idea and I would rather stay with just one. So, I have spent the past few days amalgamating my channels together. It means that some videos, demos, tutorials and slide shows may be new to you. The address for my current YouTube Channel and the one I will use into the future is https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSRlEl6raTzjc6ju4VvucJA/videos Why not put the address in your favourites so you can always find it easy and/or subscribe so that you will receive notification when I upload new content

    Animating A Still Image

    Hi Guys, O.K. - Actually this was a very simple and fairly straight-forward animation using PTE, Photoshop and SgirlzReflect. If you go to the Turorials section you will find my tutorial on how to use SqirlzReflect (a free software available for download on the web). SgirlzReflect make it easy to set up rippling water. Just create an animated gif and use it in PTE. The end result of the work there is usually a bit too intense for what I like so it's very simple to just overlay the original jpg and modulate the amount of ripple by adjusting the opacity of the jpg overlay. So essentially you have the original image, the SgirlzReflect ripple in the layer above and the original image duplicated and on the top layer. Then a mask was created in Photoshop, but in this video I recreated the entire process and used a PTE mask template with lots of blur around the edges. Inside this mask I ran a video of a surf line with the angle, intensity, hue, saturation and lightness controlled by PTE. The mask and the video were rotated to fit the still image surfline. After that I decided that there was a bit more ripple going on in the beach area so I created a PNG file in PhotoShop with transparency on the top and the area under the beach line original. Then overlaying that on the entire composition, I adjusted the transparency of that area below the surf line to modulate the degree of ripple only there. Below is the brief tutorial posted on YouTube and embedded here... Best regards, Lin

    Greetings, The current max size of uploads to the Slideshowclub is 125 mbs. It used to be 273 mbs. Though Igor has said he would fix this, the max size is still 125 mbs. Gary

    1920x1080 do not need to be much more than 1mb at quality 6 to 8. How many images? What is the size of your audio file? Why does it have to be less than 125mb - Slideshowclub?

    Animating A Still Image

    This beautiful still image was posted on FaceBook by a friend and I thought it would be fun to animate it. PicturesToExe has all the neat features which allow lots of creativity. Just a sample...

    Hi Tom, I did that and it didn't change anything. My XP system is my favorite. I have computers with XP, Win 7 Pro, Win 8 and Win 8.1 and XP is by far my favorite because there is still the ability to get to the meat and potatoes of the system. Like you I began with CP/M and CP/M 86 with Kaypro and Osborn. At the University where I taught I also used Apple II with Apple DOS 3.3. When I left the university to open my software development company I was working with an 8088 which I built myself from components from Taiwan with DOS and over the years progressively went through all the Windows operating systems except Vista which I skipped. I have also refused to install Win 10 on anything and if I ever put another system together, it won't have Win 10 - there have just been way too many issues with compatibility for me there. I realize that everyone has pretty much abandoned Win XP because the newer systems can support much more. I will be really happy with PTE supports 64 bit but of course it's a challenge then to have backward compatibility. Technology moves at such a rapid rate today, a system is technically obsolete long before it's functionally obsolete. Every once in a while I still get out my old Kaypro 4/84 and play with it. Back in those days I also had a dedicated word processor made by Systel. I used to make some pretty good bucks creating dBASE II, VisiCalc and other discs for other owners of Systel systems who didn't realize that their dedicated word processors were actually good little CMP computers which lacked only properly formatted discs to give them the same features available on the "real" CPM computers. I still have the Systel system which was a gift to me when I was still in college from my mother who sold them where she worked. I think the Systel was over $5200 back in the early 80's. It used an electric Olympus typewriter as the keyboard which also served as the printer. Things have sure changed over the years... LOL Best regards, Lin

    Hi Lin, Haven't used XP in a few years, but it was a good stable operating system. I started out using CP/M, then DOS, Windows 3, Windows 95, ... My CPU started with 8088, 286, 386,486,Pentium,... My next CPU I think is going to be AMD Ryzen. Maybe do a reset to default in Chrome. https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/3296214?hl=en Tom

    Hi Igor, Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that Chrome stopped supporting XP . With my other system - the Win 8.1, I have no problem reaching the new location of wnsoft. I'll do some research and see if there is a way to dump the Chrome cache - perhaps even reinstall Chrome. It really isn't important for me, but perhaps if this is an issue for others who also are using an old XP with Chrome might not be able to find Wnsoft. I just discovered it by accident. I had a friend visiting from out of state and I was showing her PicturesToExe and she was considering buying it for her daughter-in-law for her upcoming birthday. When I tried to reach wnsoft, I received the error message and I didn't think of trying Mozilla because I just assumed wnsoft was down for some reason. This was early in the morning. But when I tried again about 12 hours later I posted the original message above. Then I tried my other computer and Mozilla and it worked fine with them. After trying a refresh which didn't work and a cold boot which didn't help I just assumed it to be a Chrome problem. Best regards, Lin

    Hi Tom, I don't think it matters since I can reach wnsoft from the same computer on Mozilla, but not on Chrome. A check reveals that only two places currently have not yet received the change in the wnsoft server location and neither are on the "ping" path from here:

    Thanks for thinking about this idea. I know expensive software like Moho Pro can import SVG but it lacks many other features of PTE. Tom

    You can check what IP address your operating system is using for wnsoft.com compared to the DNS servers. Get the IP address from one of the sites below and then open a cmd window and ping wnsoft.com. https://viewdns.info/propagation/ https://www.whatsmydns.net/ C:\Users\Tom>ping wnsoft.com Pinging wnsoft.com [92.222.74.42] with 32 bytes of data: Reply from 92.222.74.42: bytes=32 time=174ms TTL=49 Reply from 92.222.74.42: bytes=32 time=174ms TTL=49 Ping statistics for 92.222.74.42: Packets: Sent = 2, Received = 2, Lost = 0 (0% loss), Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds: Minimum = 174ms, Maximum = 174ms, Average = 174ms Control-C ^C C:\Users\Tom> Tom

    Lin, It's strange problem. It seems that Chrome cache the DNS records for wnsoft.com and don't want to update it.

    Hi Igor, I suspect that it's a Chrome problem on my XP. Chrome no longer supports the XP system. I cold booted Windows (shut down power and restarted) and also flushed buffers and no luck. Wnsoft.com just can't be found on my Chrome browser on the XP any more. It worked fine about a week ago. However, on the same XP system Wnsoft.com runs just fine with Mozilla and also works with both Chrome and Mozilla on my Win 8.1 system. Not a problem - I'll just not use Chrome when trying to access wnsoft.com. No problem at all accessing picturestoexe.com... I will let you know when and if there is a change... Best regards, Lin
  26. Hi Roel, click on Igor's. Picture in the above post. Then click on the envelope symbol in the window that appears. This will open up a private message where you can type your reply. Jill
