I forgot software - the HP Photosmart 210 came with Photoimpressions
software, which I never got used to and stopped using. It seemed to
defy all my wishes!
So I got impatient and started using the abbreviated version of Adobe
ActiveShare that came with my HP scanner. I don't like it either! It
uses labels for photoalbum files but I can't ever figure out the actual
computer file name that the different albums are in to find the
individual photo files. This software is really easy to use to trim
pictures (once I find them!), but I haven't figured out how to size
files with it so far.
Finally, I use Polaroid's PhotoMAX SE (which came with that defective
ultra cheap Polaroid digital I tried 2 weeks before turning it in and
getting the HP) to re-size files to get them small enough to email
And then if I want to shrink the actual photosize, I use PC Paintbrush,
a cheapo ($5 to $10) bit of artware from the bargain rack at some
discount store years ago.
I'm sure there is an easier, more efficient way to do all this, but I
haven't taken time to figure it all out. Maybe this winter.
One trick I figured out on my own is to copy all the digital files from
the Lexar flashcard reader to somewhere on my harddrive, then use
Windows Explorer to rename the individual files with words (i.e., flower
name) instead of numbers, then import them from my harddrive instead of
the flashcard so when I 'lose' them in Adobe, they are easier to find
again. They also load a little faster into the software, I think.
