How to view GIFs in 'Photos'?

Q: How to view GIFs in 'Photos'?

hey guys, can anyone tell me how i can view animated gifs in 'photos'? i looked, but can't figure it out. the GIFs only appear as 'still photos'.

thanks for any help.

A: How to view GIFs in 'Photos'?

you could open the gifs in internet explorer to see them work

remember animated gifs are a series of photos - so you need to look at each photo
here are some free editors GIF Animator

and on some applications , like photoshop and gimp , they are seen as layers

what exactly do you need to do with the Gif ?

Is anyone else experiencing very slow loading of photos/images, especially higher resolution? Even simple GIFs, which previously required no loading time, now take two to several seconds to load. Videos, even low-res, which previously commenced playing instantly and seamlessly now cue the "swirling orbs of death" to swirl for up to several minutes before beginning, and will pause mid-play of 5 to 10-minute videos to swirl-load again.

I was operating on Windows 7. I denied several auto-offers to "upgrade" to Windows 10. A few days ago I walked in and found Windows 10 77% loaded and warning not to interfere. Figured that was that, and would have to deal with it. There are several "upgrades" and "enhancements" which I'd rather not have - and that Windows 7 handled much better - but now it seems I'm stuck with 10. If so and this problem cannot be resolved.... I don't know what. At great cost, switch to MAC? But continually being frustrated, delayed and cursing at the screen is not a pleasant prospect.

I have Vista Basic x64 and I'm having trouble viewing GIF's I've downloaded. I checked in my default programs and for GIF Windows Photo Gallery is supposed to be the default program for it. But the icon for it in there that is that weird messed-up looking thing that always appears when the default icon doesn't appear.

Also I've attached a screen showing me trying to open it with the right-click context menu and "open with" menu. As you can see there are actually a few options, but if I click on Windows Photo Gallery it doesn't open up and I get an error message that says "so and so GIF is not a vaild win32 appllcation. It does open up with Paint though and many other things. I've also attached the actual GIF I was trying to open.

Also Windows Photo gallery does open on it's on just fine. I've also attached the most recent gif that I've been trying to open.

Any ideas?

Hello, would you please help me!,

I once had an earlier version of NetZero internet service and had absolutley no problems with it. I moved out of the country for a few years and put the computer, along with the rest of my things, in storage.

When I returned to the States I was informed by NetZero to install their latest version, which I did. Soon after installing it, I started having problems with photos. They wouldn't appear; all I would get was black with a faint outline of the picture, usually purplish dots. By the way, I've tried turning off the "TuroCharge" function that alters how pictures load. It is completely "off."

Then, my computer began having problems shutting down fully. It would not reach the "It's Safe To Turn Off Your Computer" message. On re-starting it, as it would go through the scandisc program, it would always go through the NetZero program's files hesitatingly slow. This is another reason why I think the NetZero program has wreaked havoc with my computer.

I began calling NetZero about these problems and all they could recommend was to re-install the program. I've done this about six times now.

I've now reached the point where when I pull up "Yahoo!" the search box is completely black, and images like photos don't come in. If I go to the New York Times on-line, not only do photos not come up, but if I try to view an article, the screen is deep purple. Now if you can imagine ... Read more

A:I can't view photos or much of anything else lately.

is there any way you can get rid of netzero and go with something else? i know aol is crappy but its free and has never ruined any of my computers. hope this helps you.

Hello. Right, he's my problem. I've been using my parents computer for the last few months and decided to make my own user/log-in the other day. After doing so, I cut/pasted my photos folder into my new user directory (or whatever, I'm not very techie..). I have thousands of photos, my BF is a photographer, and I can view most of them. However, in one particular folder 90% of them aren't viewable! Says I don't have permission... When I log back into parents windows, I can see the photos in my directory (as they are no longer located in theirs) but there are little gold padlocks on the ones I cannot see on my log-in. I've tried changing permissions, ownership, you name it.. I've looked for help on line and tried everything. The only thing that seems to work is if I right click on each individual photo and change things that way.. but I do have a life and this will take AGES.. Can anyone help me?

If you need more information, please ask.

Anyone remember the old way Windows would show photos in folders, a ton of thumbnails?

How do I get that back so I don't have to hit preview 500 times to find a photo?

A:How do you view photos in a folder

First thing I would do is to right-click on the folder that contains the pictures and then select Properties. On the dialog that comes up, select the Customize tab. There is a dropdown box there that you can select to tell Windows what kinds of files are in that folder, in your case select Pictures.In addition, in any folder, you can change the view and select how you want to see the files listed. In the Upper right hand area of the Explorer window there is an icon that looks like boxes with lines next to them. If you hover over that icon it will show "Change your view". If you click on the icon, each click will cycle thru the available views. On the side of the icon is a down arrow. If you click on the arrow, it will bring up a list of the various views you can select from.

For some reason the photos on our pc view too dark. It's done that since we got it. It also prints the images too dark. The images/photos are fine if viewed/printed through the photoediting software that came free with the pc (Photo Impression). If I get a photo attached with an email it views too dark also.
I'm wondering if it's Vista as we didn't have this problem (with the same photos) on our old pc which was Windows XP and I've added some to our new laptop which is Windows 7 and they view normally there too.

We've just got Photoshop Elements and whether I transfer photos from the original file on the computer or upload them from the camera to PSE they view too dark there too. However that problem I think is besides the main point - I think if I can somehow sort the original problem then PSE will be ok too.

Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone have any answers? PLEASE!

Hey everyone, I hope this is the right area to post this.

I recently just upgraded to a new computer that's running Windows 8.1 and had all my media files (mostly photos and text documents) from the old XP computer saved on an external hard drive. I plug the external HD to my new computer and can access the drive itself, but I can't view nearly 90% of the content! Videos and music files seem to work fine, but none of the photos or document/text files will open, which are the most important to me.

The document files say "access is denied" and can't be opened and when I try to view the photos it says "Windows photo viewer can't open this picture because you don't have the correct permission to access the file location". Even when I try to move or copy&paste the files out of the external HD, it denies me.

How can I fix this problem? How do I get permission to my own files? I tried to "take ownership" of the drive...but I'm not so confident that I'm doing it right because I haven't been able to find any instructions on doing it with Windows 8.1 ... and what I'm doing still hasn't helped.

ANY help or suggestions that anyone can give me on how to get permission to view all my photos/documents again on my new computer would be awesome.

I have had issues viewing photos since upgrading to Windows 7. The message I was getting in Photoviewer was:cannot view photos in photo viewer because you do not have correct permissions. I followed the instructions in a 2007 string from TheOutcaste and ran the command: icacls *.* /reset /T /C in the folder where my photos was stored. This made it possible for me to see approximately 80 to 90 % of my photos which is GREAT. However, I still have a fairly large number of photos which are not accessible unless I go through the tedious manual task of assigning myself as the owner. I've run the command again and can see that on those photos which cannot be seen that there is a notation that access was denied. Any additional ideas on what I might be able to do in order to "release" these photos in mass...and not manually one at at time?? Thank you in advance. skyglover

Hi all,

Please help me choose tools - service provider(s) and/or application(s) - for my goals.

I'd like to start sharing privately videos and photos in some private cloud drive with a group of close people. It would be sort of electronic photo/video album. Most computers are 8" Tablet PCs, OS is Windows 8.1.

There is a question how can I view these photos/videos when one (or more) of these people is offline. The best thing would be an application which automatically caches the photos/videos which are viewed most often or "starred" or "liked" most or "rated" as best. The application would cache (for offline viewing too when there is no internet connection) those mostly viewed/starred/liked/rated photos/videos on each computer, depending on which photos/videos were watched on that particular computer.

What I plan is just keep putting all the photos/videos (probably from all the same computers) to some cloud drive, and - the best thing would be - just let the mostly watched photos/videos to sort naturally in each cache. Or maybe there is some feature to rate photos/videos (somewhat like in windows media player).

Is there a way to auto-cache some amount (let's say up to 2GB or 5GB) of the most often viewed files (for offline viewing) instead of having all of them on those devices? I'm asking this because those tablet PCs have a rather limited storage capacity (and are also limited on internet connection quite often too).

I have Vista Home Premium with Microsoft Photo Gallery on my Dell Inspriron 1721 laptop. I?m using a machine to transfer slides to a SD card then uploading them to Photo Gallery. Photos transfer Ok except the order of the photo gets scrambled somehow during upload. In other words, the photos on the SD card are in chronologically order but after uploading, when I view them in Photo Galley, the order is all mixed up. I know you can manual move them around but it?s hard to be sure of the original order and it is very time consuming when you have hundreds of photos. I would appreciate any suggestions on how to fix them. FYI I would call myself a novice user of Photo Gallery.

A:Uploading photos from a SD memory card into Photo Gallery scrambles order of photos

Will the Photo Gallery sort by name? You could prefix the photo names with numerical sequence. A utility like
Introduction - Bulk Rename Utility will do it easily. It's free.

Edit: if that looks too busy, the multi-renamer in FreeCommander is a bit simpler to use. [c] before the name prepends a number starting at what you select and incrementing by what you choose. Just press F2 when in the folder.

My sister has photos of me in my bridesmaid dress that she took with her camera. I saved them on my computer.
I am going out of town to see our family, and cannot take the computer, but want to show the pictures. I will have my camera.

I tried transferring the photos to my camera's memory card by changing their file names to the same type of name as the photos that were taken with my camera. They are displayed as DSCN0610, so I renamed the photos as DSCN0700 and so on. Then I put my memory card in the driver, (G drive) opened up the drive, opened the folder where the pictures from my camera were, and dragged the newly renamed photos into that folder.

I put the memory card back in my camera and hit the display button, and the message I am getting for the spots where those files are is "File contains no image data."

What did I do wrong? What do I do?

Information - My camera is a Nikon Coolpix.

I have some problems with my iPod and I don't know if it started after I installed something or not, but this is what's wrong:
- The camera of my iPod starts and then crashes, OR sometimes if I start it it can take one picture and then the black screen with the white turning thing (which you also get when you turn off the iPod) and then it returns to the home screen
- The images app also doesn't start up. If I tap it, it opens but before the text ''camera roll'' and that stuff is loaded, it crashes.
- When my iPod is cabled (i know thats not a word) to my pc, a windows window appears for importing the photos on the ipod to the computer with windows. when I click import, the blue screen appears on my pc and luckily it can start up again. it happens every time. now that's not a very big problem.
- in itunes when i connect my ipod, a bar with some different colors appears, right? to show how much space apps, photo's, books, music and stuff you are using on your ipod. the problem is that there are no photos and i swear i had like 1 gig of photos on my ipod. i hope theyre not gone.

I have a laptop running Vista which came with some Google Gadgets. Initially the Photos gadget was working fine. As I decided to get my new computer organized (a mildly OCD thing to do ) I rearranged the folders that my photos were kept in. I noticed that NONE of my photos were appearing in the sidebar any longer so I clicked the link to 'add photos' and remapped to the My Pictures folder. This didn't help so I remapped to a deeper folder in order to get it closer to the photos. This didn't work so I remapped it down to a specific folder that doesn't have any folders in it. It only contains photos. Lo and behold... It didn't work. So... I searched the internet and found one question like mine with no answer following it. Needless to say, what looks like it should be a fairly straight forward adjustment has not been so. Please, what button am I not pushing to fix this?...

On a new install of 7 I have dual monitors and the built-in photos screensaver is displaying photos in the middle of the field which usually means that the photo is shown in the secondary monitor but if it is too big for the secondary monitor it is partially split on both monitors. Is this a bug in the built-in screensaver or do I have it set up wrong? If it is a bug in photos screensaver is there a thrid party screensaver that does a better job at using photos as a screensaver? I have a 21" builtin monitor that is my primary display.

Hi,I fear my brain is becoming scrambled with this problem.I have built a couple of web sites the menus of which use gif images in the shape of little black arrows to indicate a sub menu. Using Internet Explorer 7, yesterday I noticed on both sites Red X's appearing instead of the arrows. The sites areMidlands & Northern Ridgeback ResueMwenga Rhodesian RidgebacksThe menus for both these sites are by Milonic. Knowing that the arrow gifs were hosted on a their server I assumed that they had perhaps moved the gifs to a different location. I thought I may just as well uploady the arrow gif to the server hosting the Midlands & Northern Ridgeback Rescue Site which would should cure the problem, and it did. The Mwenga Rhodesian Ridgebacks Site still has it's arrow gifs hosted at Milonic and for that site I still see the red x's.However, on my wife's computer she sees the arrow gif's as they should be on both sites, so logically I should on my own computer. I appreciate the easy way out is to upload the gif to the Mwenga Rhodesian Ridgebacks server also, but why on one computer does it not seem to matter where the Gif is hosted yet on another it does.I have tested both sites on my computer in Firefox and Opera also.

I have created a logo for my Website. I found a animated gif I want to add to the logo. I can bring the images into my editing program together, but when I try to export them as a single gif image, the image is not animated.

Any suggestions?
Thank you!

A:Need help with gifs

Most image editing aplications only open the first frame, they don't support the animation. Ulead makes a .gif animator, free trial download from their site.. If you search some of the threads in this forum Hewee posted a link to a free older version.

I'd suggest cutting your logo into two pieces. One where you want to put the animation and the other that is going to remain static. Place each image side by side in either a table or div. This will drop the file size quite a bit especially if the animation only appears on small part of the original logo.

Sometimes I will play around with some graphics for web pages. Like various banner generators that they have around the web.

The thing is.. often the file that is created/generated is in GIF format. It might be some kind of logo or banner that has a neat appearance.

Often... I will convert these banners to JPG. Problem is... they don't look quite as good. Just not as crisp, clear or vivid as they appeared as a gif.

This.... despite the fact that I saved them at a 100% quality.

Why is this the case? The reason that I prefer them in jpg. format is because I have more editing options with the editors I use than I do if they stayed in gif format.

Is there any way to convert the image from a gif to a jpg, or other format, and have it still looking just as good without having to edit it to death?

Thanks in advance
