Windows 7: Software to rotate a picture ?

Jerry,

Thank you very much for that jpg version., I can use that with Paint.Net to make small segments and use Photo Story for Windows to convert it to a .wmv file to use in Windows Movie Maker.

How did you "export it as a jpg?" I really do not have a good pdf reader. I have been taking screen shots of the original chart and importing them to Paint.Net but I had no luck the resulting jpg files after saving them. But I am able to easily resize the segments of the jpg file you sent. I am really pleased with that.

I had the original family tree trellis chart file printed on a heavy glossy 24" x 82" stock. It showed each generation of the family next to each other. The printer had rotated the tree to make it a horizontal poster. I wanted to take a picture of that "poster" to include in a video but have had no luck because of glare on the poster and my lack of advanced photographic skills. It seemed to me that since the poster was a pint of the segments of the .pdf file that if I could rotate those files as the printer did I could recreate a copy of the poster and use it in the video rather than a photo. That is why I asked for help on this forum.

I am really very pleased with all of the help and advice I have received. Thanks to all of you.

Carver: Yes, that msg came from me.

On your post, click edit
then click the paperclip / manage attachments
this brings up what looks like a upload screen, but if you look further down, you can remove attachments

Let me know if that makes sense or you get stuck with removing the attachment

As side note re: Jerry's image. When I looked at his, I thought I saw the entire tree, but when I looked a 2nd time I thought I saw only the 1st page. If the whole tree is there, excuse my poor eyesight. If not, take a look at Maple.zip on the my post following Jerry's

Once you have what you need - we all agree to remove the attachments. So let us know that you don't need the images. It was a bit of work for me given my PDF reader (I'll ask Jerry about what he uses) and then stitching it together so I don't want to delete anything until you give the go ahead.

Bill,

Thank you for those instructions. I will remove the chart tomorrow morning.

Thank you also for also for all of the work you did to convert the chart and stitch it back together. Unfortunately, the png file that you sent does not resize well in Paint.Net. After the third increase in size the lettering is not readable and I need good clear, lettering for the video. The jpg file that Jerry sent increased very well in Paint.Net (and when I just right-clickéd on the jpeg file. Unfortunately, that jpg file has already been removed so I cannot return to it.

I plan to download and use the free pdf file that Jerry sent. So I should be okay now. Thank you very much. I appreciate all of the work that Jerry and you did to help me.

Carver: You're welcome

Yep, been there, done that. Placing detailed images in video is tricky.

If you have the same PDF viewer as Jerry used, you should be able to follow the same steps he took and get both pages in a format that you can work with.

I removed Maple.zip - you already have it, but it doesn't resize.

So..... did you learn anything? Too much? ha ha

GIMP has a lot of power, you might think about downloading and using it at some point. There is a learning curve though.

Software to rotate a picture

Bill,

Thank you. I did learn quit a bit. Quite a bit to absorb. I also downloaded Nitro - PDF Reader, sand The Gimp. Now I have to learn to use them. At 86 I am not the swiftest learner, memories not too good either but Ill get around to learning them. I am glad that I asked the Forum for help. Thanks for your help.

Hi Jerry,

Thanks for the link. I downloaded and installed Nitro - PDF Reader. It looks good and user-friendly. I am sure that it will be very helpful when I learn to use it, but when I tried to rotate the chart I could not get it to turn anything but quarter turns. Can I use it to rotate the chart manually? Also when I tried to Export the .pdf file as jpg. I could not find that option. I am a slow learner so I will eventually get it, but any tips you could share would be most welcome.

When I returned t the post here I had attached the chart, I did not a paperclip to use to start removing the chart. I hope that I have attached a screenshot showing that original chart.

Carver: You are welcome. It was my pleasure helping you. If you get stuck with this stuff, post something here, but I think you'll do fine once you get Jerry's PDF viewer.

Jerry uses a different PDF viewer - I'm not sure which one. I read through the posts because the export menu pick in the app he uses would have made my job a lot easier.

I use Nitro PDF and there is no export menu option that I know of, I think you confirmed that.

The easiest thing to to is left click on Bongo (the name, not the avatar pic) on any of his posts and send him a PM asking him which PDF viewer he used to export the tree to jpeg. If you wouldn't mind posting that info back here, I'd appreciate it.

I see Britton30 is helping you remove your attachment, thanks Gary.
