Trying to configure P.I.P. with Windows 10. I downloaded it. Then I press on the P.I.P. image on desk top and brought to the screen the page where images on uploaded to the forum. Next it says to click on the new button to bring up the configuration page. Then it says push the "get" button. I do this and nothing happens. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks
I currently use PIP with Win 7 Pro. Hopefully someone running Win 10 can chime in and offer some further insight. Ogre could probably help.

Roger, as you've been informed numerous times in all these threads over the years... PIP is able to work with all versions of Windows. I don't know why you continue to take such delight informing us of your failures.

I have it working on both of my Windows 10 machines, so I know it can be done. I don't recall having any issues getting it to work so unfortunately I'm no help in figuring out the problem other than encouragement that it is a double feat.

...because it dont work on any of my 5 computers at all. I guess I have a lot of special custom computers. It may work fine on your computers, but it dont on mine. Even the guys at the computer repair shop couldnt get it to work. Thats the reason ive used alternatives for a dozen years. Its not a delight...it was a pain in the azz when id spend half a day trying to get it to work. I got better stuff to do with my time. Besides, like ive said a hundred times...I like being able to delete them when I want to. If I do and you havent saved it, its gone. As long as other people keep asking about it, ill keep telling you the same thing so get used to it. Thank you.
I tried using P.I.P. but my photo was too big. I resized it to 1024 but the bytes are too much. How do I fix that.
I use a different photo sizer (Light Image Resizer 4) but set my max size to 1010 bytes and I almost always get a PIP postable photo. If the size is too large , work the resizer once again with a lower limit. BTW, my resizer creates new copies of the photo and does not change the original one.

There needs to be higher compression of the JPG image.
One feature of IrfanView that I really like is that you can set the maximum file size of the JPG image (your goal is 300 kb for PIP) before you save it. The program itself then works out the compression required, and implements it. Takes all the guesswork out, makes the process so easy.

Just open the picture in paint, go to resize. On my old phone resizing to 50 would make the files under 300k...
Shem, that might be an option, and it's probably very simple to do... but I imagine that process will actually shrink the image size, and not just the file size. Is that correct? If so, it's a shame to make the image smaller than it needs to be when all it needed was a higher compression ratio with the same pixel dimensions (as long as it's not wider than 1024).
Both of these images are just under 300 kb. I prefer the larger one.

I've been using PIP on every Windows series since Windows 95. Never failed to work. If you don't use a resizer like Patrick's, and can set the pixel to a custom setting, I use 1024 x 768. I think I open the picture in Paint to resize it. Then with PIP open, click Browse, find the folder and open and file and open. Then Post, then OK. Place your cursor in your message, and hold down Ctrl and click v. The pictures are never over 300k, whether I use the little Sony, the phone, the Sony HD video camera in snapshot, or the Canon EOS.
On my last PC running Windows 10, I used PowerToys for Windows Image Resizer, but for some reason, that won't operate on the current PC with Windows 10.
I have not had issues with any of the Windows versions. I use GIMP2.0 to resize my images. I would not recommend it, unless you are doing photo editing, but I do resize all of my images to 1024x768, AND compress them to 85%. I usually start with 3-4Meg images from my phone. They are usually around 200-280K when done. No issues at all.
Good luck getting it going.

Testing PIP on Windows 10...... hey, it works...... I did nothing special other than resizing the picture ( a little too much on the first one) using paint.
Once you get the size correct, simple matter of going to the history in PIP and then clicking the button under the picture you want to post, then hitting control / V. It will be on your clipboard, so go to the section you want to post it, and simply right click and paste the image link on the clipboard there.
All of my images are on Photobucket, and today I just downloaded them all to back them up just in case.
I will be using PIP from here on out for sure. At first it was a bit cumbersome, but then I started thinking about how I have to log in to Photobucket, find the image, right click on the link, copy, then come back here and paste, etc.... this will be much easier.
When people are asking for assistance, simply telling them that you couldn't figure it out and subsequently gave up is hardly helpful. You're welcome.
Its not I cant figure it out. I installed it fine before on Win 98. Me and no one at either local computer shops could get it working either on XP, 7, or 8.2. I have Vaios, Gateways and Toshiba cmptrs. You simply saying it works doesnt make it so either. I do have Avast and MWB. Tried PIP install with and with them off. I quit trying years ago. Too much aggravation when I have something that works just fine...AND gives me the benefit of deleting. People are welcome to ignore...their choice. I dont push any particular host, like I said there are 100.
Irfanview has a very nice batch conversion feature also that you can add as many pictures to as you want all at once, save them to a "resized" folder, and point PIP to it. I did all of mine now at 1024 x 768, and every one is picked up by PIP...... Example:
Doing this is actually much easier than using an external host for me now. I wish I had looked at PIP closer years ago........
Patrick. Sorry to keep buggin you----But-----I resized my photo using InfanView and the worked great. But the byte size is still over 300. I read everything on the InfanView side but can't see anything that will change that.
Read my link above. Two programs are easy and free. resizer in made to work for limited picture size services. Right click the picture file, set size needed, done. You can batch resize too using any method Win Explorer will select including Turn On "Use check boxes to select items" under organize/file-search options/view
