Re: Captions for photos and images

To resize my photos captions etc. I use Imagemagick via a batch file. My batch file has different options and I enable the ones I want to use at the time. It is just a matter of dragging and dropping the photo over the icon on the desktop. For example: convert.exe %1 -thumbnail x600 -bordercolor Bla...

Re: Problems getting information from relatives!

Yes some useful comments here and I have to agree with them and like others here have said the only way to get information from people is to sit with them and ask questions. But again that is not always practical as I do not want to drive a couple of hundred miles to ask one or two questions. As soo...

Problems getting information from relatives!

I am having problems getting information out of relatives and the only way is go and see them face to face. For instance I have some wedding photos and I have numbered each person and sent a paper version out and no replies. I have also uploaded them to my website and all the user has to do is write...

Re: Delete unused addresses

I have just been through a similar process and spent 3 full days over Christmas changing addresses and places. It pays to get things right from the beginning! The main reason I could not automate the process was I had items correct in address and place; the same details in both, full details in one ...

Re: V5.0.11 Running slow/freezing.

Probably your computer; if it is a windows PC it slowly get full of programs and junk. Mine is running slower and I only did a reinstall last summer! I also find antivirus software tends to slow it down when running in the background. You may have some unwanted malware as well. A good program to cle...

Nosferatu if you go for the print option you may be able to print to file or there are programs you download to 'print to pdf'. This adds an option to your printers list to print to pdf. I used to use this quite a lot but can not remember which program I used to use now.

FH freezing amp; slow.

There are a couple of free antivirus programs - Avast and AVG. I have used Avast for about 4 years as I had a problem with AVG which I used to use.

FH works without any problesm with Avast. I belive McAfee uses a lot of resorces.

My thoughts on the http://www.forces-war-records.co.uk/ website. 1/ General Search ( apart from medal information did not provide any more details than what I found elsewhere for free ): Preferably need forename and surname.

Interesting reply tatewise; I did not know that. I should read the instructions one day!

In (1) you have missed a step - you need to select couple in the dropdown box ( You only have a choice of Individual or couple so it is quite obvious ) then the family in the next box.

Unable to install V5

I had a look through Google for mfc100.dll problems and one person had problems with AVG but most seem to think it was a 'microsoft c++ runtime' problem.
