More help please
« on: June 13, 2018, 04:07:47 pm »
I have just purchased a new PC  with Windows 10 as the operating system - unfortunately it will not allow me to install my "bible" a piece of photo editing software that has been invaluable to me. Can anyone recommend a piece of software that will allow me to crop jpegs to either 4" x 6", 7" x 5" and A4 sizes please?

Microsoft Digital Image 10 - apparently its a 32bit programme which makes it incompatible - what ever that means!

Have you tried compatiblity mode? I assume you can install it, just not run it?

Advice here.

There's a slightly quirky looking workaround listed as the second answer here.

The photo editor which comes with Windows 10 is perfectly capable of cropping and adjusting the basic level of photos. It's what I use nowadays.




If I need to resize then I open with MS Paint and use that.  Granted it only gives you the option for percentage or pixels. For print size I guess it also depends what DPI you're printing at?

You can also try the snipping tool in Windows accessories.
