  1. Dealing with pictures. Win10

    I have not done a lot with photos on since switching to win10, but just recently was part of a discussion how we can't add simple text to a picture (while we can add all kinds of stupidity like animation) but this seem to continue.

    To day I had to resize a photo so I can upload it, to under 2MB. It was 2.6MB

    So after looking at it in "photo" I instinctively clicked on edit. That was my first mistake.

    It opened up Paint 3D. I can't find any resizing is this new paint app. Do people not need to resize any more?!

    After that I saw that I can open the old "paint" app, which I did, set the resize to 70% and saved the same PNG format as the original was and now I had a 4.95MB file. wow.

    I kept researching and now I have spent 1/2 h on this, and realized the resize was right there in "photos" just had to find it.


    I opened my 2.6MB original PNG and I am dealing MPs. Great. All I was is <2MB file not trying to figure out what MPs mean!

    Since the original file was 8MP I only needed a 30% reduction, but the options were 4MP or custom. Picked the 4MP save it.

    Now I had 486KB file. Not what I want! I want the picture to be as good as possible, so just under 2MB.

    So I went to custom.

    Good bye MPs now I have quality %, which is good enough for me.

    I picked the offered 80% and saved. 822KB. How is 80% of 2.6MB under 1MB?!

    So I was gonna go to 99% but you can't only steps of 10, so I went to 90% .............. 1.34MB

    I accepted this as exactly how much time should I be spending on something like resizing a picture to under a limit?!

    People are trying to reinvent the wheel and in the mean time we are crawling. (google is not better)

    Quick Access not searching Pictures folder

    Summary, that last suggestion didn't work.

    • I moved the pictures to another folder temporarily.

    • Since there were no troubleshooting steps for this scenario, just for the heck of it, I ran through the restore steps. Copied some pictures into the Pictures folder, ran a Quick Access search and initial problem remains: Searching all of QA doesn't find any files in Pictures folder, running search on just the Pictures folder does. I want to run a global search and find matching files in any/all of the Documents, Music, Videos, and Pictures folders.
    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date. I hope it didn't create potential future problems in my registry.

    Bottom line: I'm still looking for a fix.

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.
