I did have a windows Vista laptop that had a fantastic default programme that enabled me to crop and alter the colour/lightness/darkness and all sorts of things on a photo, on this Vaio laptop it opens the photo but there is no way to crop a photo (which I do alot for ebay) I am really disappointed after it was so simple with the Vista laptop, I have tried to open a photo in Paint.net programme but I cant figure out how to crop a photo in there, what can I do? is there a different default programme that will let me "fix" a photo like the Vista laptop did? (I am really disappointed with this Vaio laptop as its IMPOSSIBLE (for me) to figure out what to do, thanks LAPTOPDUNCE
If you use Paint then you can crop by using this method
First insert the photo by clicking on Paste then paste from go to the photo you wish to use.
Now click on crop then click on the area you wish to crop, this will open up a window for you, this will crop the picture.
Hi Woolwell, Yes, it was windows photo gallery on the Vista laptop, it was SO HANDY because as soon as I clicked on "preview" for the photo on my SD card from the camera or on any of my stroed photos on the laptop it opened with that fantastic "page" where you had "fix photo" and when clicking on that it opened all the best fix options including crop and altering the contrast/lightness etc., so my question is: how do I download this as part of windows live essentials? Will I already have Windows Live Essentials on this Sony vaio laptop? (I am a total dunce with these things after all)
Tarbyme - that "paint" programme is TERRIBLY difficult, I can get the rectangular cursor to crop the photo I have imported but then what do I do?? there is no explanation of how to only keep the cropped part of the photo!! its TERRIBLE!! I want to get the Windows Photo Gallery installed which Woolwell was right, this was the EXCELLENT programme I had on the Vista laptop, so easy to use and ALWAYS worked, no messing about with all this "paste" and opening new windows, Oh, what a mess!! I just want to know how to install the Windows Photo gallery as part of the Windows Live Essentials, trouble is I havent a clue if I already have the windows Live Essentials on this Vaio laptop?? thanks LAPTOPDUNCE
