Organize Photos By Date And Time


How to organize photos by date and time? I am finally at a a point in life when i am no longer at the bleeding edge of technology and believe it has passed me by. I bought a new laptop with windows 7 so i could organize my photos. However, i cannot find a way to organize my photos by date then time. For example, a recent trip to disney world i have over 1000 photos from 5 different cameras; all have correct date/time stamps and i want to put all of these photos in one folder and organize by date and time.

Each picture's file name begins with the letter of the person that took the photo, and are then number sequentially. All photos are also tagged w/ individuals, park, event, etc. However, i cannot find a way other than date. Once i get them in order i will then make a slide presentation in movie maker. I need help. How do i arrange my photos by date and time?

Date / Time Format On Taskbar

This is regarding the date and/or time on the right-hand side of the taskbar. Mine only displays the time . I've looked and searched but cannot find a way to add the date and/or day of the week there (with the time). I've seen the time, day of week and date on some pcs, so it can be done. But how?
I also have 2 additional time zones which show when i hover the mouse over the time, which is fine - then the date and day of the week show in the popup, but i want besides my local time, also the date and day of the week displayed on the taskbar.

Laptop Clock Time And Date

New asus computer laptop with premium windows 7 package. The date and time constantly changes when i turn it off and reactivate it, when it is say down for a day. Shouldn't the internal battery and memory be keeping time and date. This is especially true if i put it in hibernate mode. The change is subtle may just change a few days off , but keep correct time. And sometimes both are off. This is a constant problem and only problem. Even have it set to synchronize with internet. I need to use calendar, but won't do me any good if this is going on.

Saving Scan File As Date And Time Using Win 7 Fax And Scan

A friend has a brother 8840d all-in-one printer. He used to be able to use the scan function on the printer and send the scan in .jpg to the computer running xp with a unique name that had the date and time embedded in the name ie: 111709214200001.jpg.
 
He doesn't have the windows 7 driver to use the scan function as above but the windows 7 fax and scan viewer will let him scan. Question: is there a way to default win7 fax and scan to save a scan with a name similar to above that would have the date incorporated? I now saves it as img01, img02. I am still running xp so i don't have the ability to check.

Organize Pictures Position

I open the pre-named folder called "billeder in danish" as i would translate to "pictures" - in there i have eg. A folder called thailand with 50 pictures that is numbered from the camera (ex. 3130, 3131, 3132 etc. )I would then like to "grab" number 3130 and place it some where in this folder where i think it should be but when i "grab" it, place it where i decide and "ungrab" the picture goes back to its originally position. Can i not choose exactly where i want to put and organize my pictures?

Organize Contacts In Live Mail

How can i organize my contacts in windows live mail? I am moving from xp outlook express to windows 7 windows live mail and i cannot see any way to organize my contacts into different folders like i have in oe. I have folders for different "classes" of contacts - friends, relatives, business colleagues, etc etc. When i send an email it is almost always going to a subset of one of these classes so i click on "to" and select the folder, then scan thorough it and drag the appropriate contacts to "to", "cc", or "bcc". I need to see them all to remind myself which ones i want to sent to - i don't always have the names at hand.

It seems that with wlm i must browse through all my 200 or so contacts for each email! As you might imagine, this makes wlm all but unusable. I know i can create groups but that is for sending a message to all the members of a group. I rarely do that.

Please let me know if i am wrong about this. If it really is as i have described, is this seen as a problem and is it being worked on and will there be a solution within a few months? If not, i shall have to start a search for another mail client.

Re-organize My Video, My Music Folders

I'm having som e annoying problems with the my videos, my photos and on. I have an 80gb intel ssd for windows, games, and programs, i also have a 500gb samsung hdd which i would like to have movies, music, documents and other stuff. But when i booted the pc from the w7 disc to the ssd, all my user folders was located on my ssd, where they should not be.

Is there any way i could move all my user folders? Can i just cut out and paste the folders, or will this do anything to the system? I know there have been several threads about similar issues, but i have seen through them and i did not get any smarter.

Dell Aio Gadget Date Changed

Original title: date changed to 2075 on dell aio. One program that has been affected is the weather gadget. Once i reset the date the weather gadget, when in the larger mode that shows the 3 day forcast, shows the wrong days for the forcast. On thursday the 3 day forcast should be for friday, saturday and sunday but on my gadget it shows tuesday, wednesday and thursday. When i add a new weather gadget for a zip code i have not previously set up, the days are correct. When i deleted the existing gadgets and add a new one for a zip code i had when the date changed, it is wrong.

My Photos Have Disappeared

Most of my photos have disappeared; what happened to them? I transferred a bunch of pictures onto this new laptop. I had them arranged by month. I could access them by going to the pictures library or to user/my name/my pictures. Well, now i can see all of the monthly folders i created, but in 90% of them, it says folders are empty if i go to the my pictures, the folders are empty, . If i go to the pictures library and arrange by month, i can see them, but if i click to make it bigger, it says windows viewer can't open this because the picture has been deleted or it's in a location that isn't available. ? What happened to my pictures?

Stretched Photos From Mobile

I have a brand new computer with windows 7 installed. Everything looks perfect except that every time i transfer pictures from my mobile they look horizontally stretched. The dimensions of the jpeg from my lgkf600 are: 2048x1536 the same problem is for every picture taken with my mobile and already stored on my hdd (the one i had as storage even before i use windows 7. Though if i upload one of these "stretched" pictures to a forum, or facebook for example, they look normal again. Do you have any ideas or solutions to my problem? It's really annoying!

(I tried to find on this forum some answer about my problem, but i haven't seen something that fits me, if there one, please do excuse me for the repetition. )

Moving Photos Around Within A Folder

I have had windows 7 for only a week now after having vista for a few agonizing months. I was really happy with xp but i had to purchase a new computer that came with vista. After having so many problems i upgraded to 7. My wife and i take alot of pictures and the click and drag feature was really great for us. I spent a couple of hours on 7 trying to arrange pictures in the order that i want and had no success. Please bring back the click and drag. If i could figure out a way to put xp on this new computer , i would do that.

Photos Will Not Rotate After Importing From Camera

Photos will not rotate when i copy them from my camera to the computer, however when i open them up in photoshop or other photo editors, the photo is rotated to the correct position already. This problem gives me a different orientation using photo editors and a different orientation using the windows default picture viewer.

Photos taken on the camera are automatically rotated based on how i was holding the camera. Then when i put them on the computer (i don't use an import program, i just copy and paste) they are shown in the wrong orientation (usually vertical pictures are horizontal). Now i rotate them to fix them until i open them up and photoshop and my pictures are actually upright to begin with.

Basically i rotate photos when it is already rotated to the correct position. The problem is that windows vista and 7 always show the wrong preview. This is frustrating because i can't find the correct rotation. If i do ps my photos will always be in one orientation and then when using windows to preview images it's in another orientation. What's the problem? I noticed this happens on my friend's computers as well.

Downloading Photos From Memory Cards

Windows xp was great for downloading pics, eventhough it would freeze at times. Vista was horrible. Windows 7 is very confusing. When i insert a cd-r to copy pics from memory cards, it promps to name the cd if you want, i don't so i just click next, than it gives me a blank/shaded screen, and a message at the bottom right saying there are pics ready to download, but when i click on it, it does not do anything. It send the photos to the c drive and there is where i can copy to the cd, horrible. Leave it like windows xp nice and simple. Tell me what i am doing wrong

Cannot Email Photos In Live Mail

I've just had a new pc with windows 7 and windows live mail, and am still getting used to it, so very sorry if i am just being plain thick! I can send and receive regular emails fine, unless i add an photo - then, they are sent but not received. I have a couple of email addresses and have been trying all day to send myself a photo from one to the other, but the only way it worked was by
Sending it from my hotmail address online (not from windows live mail).

Do you have any ideas what i'm doing wrong? I am using the 'add photos' button then selecting a photo from my pictures, clicking 'add' and 'done' and everything seems to work ok, but non of the emails have arrived back.

Sorting Photos By Dragging Within A Folder

I'm in shock ! I loaded windows 7 before going on vacation and now that i'm back, i wanted to sort my trip's 1000+ videos/pictures like i always did by dragging them around within a folder and then renaming them once in the desired order. This is step one before producing a slideshow or video and even the most amateur users know that .

It does not work in windows 7 ?

It is mind-boggling that i then read in your forum that this critical user feature was removed "by design" . Tell me there is a way to do it ! If not, this is as stupid as removing cut & paste . Whoever did this "by design" should be fired and quickly before he does other stupid things like that. I'm sorry about venting my frustration like this but this is unbelievable. It means i have to re-format and reload xp or vista back in order to be able to efficiently do my video/slideshow because of such a key feature missing in windows 7.

Please help by suggesting another way of doing it efficiently like before . If no other solution (and i am afraid this is the case from what i have read in your forum) , then please add this urgently at the top of your fix list.

Error Invalid File Handle When Applying A Tag To A Group Of Photos

I am trying to apply tags to a group of photos. If i select about 10 photos in windows explorer, then go down to the bottom and enter a tag, sometimes i will get at least one error popup. The popup window has a title of "apply properties file" and the error is "invalid file handle". I am given an option to retry, and 90% of the time this succeeds. Any thoughts on what could be going on here?

Cannot Change Time On The Taskbar

Once when i bought the computer it was fine. Then once i noticed that even though it was 5:10 pm sunday 4th of july, it showed that it was 1:10 am monday 5th of july! So i changed it. This is what i did:i clicked on the place where it showed me the time, and the clock and the calendar popped up. Then i clicked where it said "change date and time settings. " The window with the date and time and the time zone displayed came on, and i clicked the change date and time button, with administrator permission (which is me).

I doubled clicked the hour and used the arrows to set it correctly. And also with the minutes and seconds. And i changed the date. I clicked ok. Nothing happened- nothing changed, and the wrong time is still there. So what happened? How do i fix the time?

Any Time Upgrade Or Reinstall

I recently bought an hp laptop that had windows 7 home premium installed on it. I have a copy of windows 7 ultimate (promo retail) that i would like to use instead. I have installed it but have found that most of the extra stuff that hp throws in does not work on standard installs if windows. I could easily do a system restore and use my copy as a any time upgrade. If i do this does that key become tied with the home premium or could i reinstall it at a later date(as a retail version) and restore the laptop back to home premium
