|Hi Mohamed, |
Thanks SO much for all your trouble!
I've solved one problem: when I signed out, I could access the updated versions of the bugs/features page and my profile/wall, but when I signed in, I could only get the 10 March versions... so I've de-selected the "stay signed in" option, and signed in AFTER I loaded the page, so I could do a reply.
Still no luck with crayon, though.
I tried the link you suggested to check my Flash version, but got error 404 (someone REALLY doesn't like me!). I searched their site and found a flash player detection kit to install, but I'm wary of installing anything new, and I did install the new version last week (I had to click on the IE security bar to install it).
I'll try again tomorrow at work, and go through the steps as you suggested, or try google chrome.
Your new process sounds fabulous! I can't wait to try it with my photos- I have lots of simple pics which may work as clipart style :)
|Hi Catherine, thanks for uploading those pictures. I'm sure they will be useful even if you didn't trace them. I'm actually working on a tool now that will attempt to trace images automatically and all you will need to do is just upload a photo. I will let you know once it is done.|
About the vanishing posts, it is my mistake not yours. I actually was working on the database from a little bit and that might be the reason.
About this bug, I tried Crayon on a vista computer, and I used Internet Explorer. At first it did not work. I went to Adobe's website and clicked on "get adobe flash player". Then clicked on "Download". IE popped a security bar at the top saying some thing like "This website attempts to install activex control". I clicked on the bar, and agreed to install the activex control. After the installation finished, I closed all IE windows, and opened IE again. This time when I went to the images it worked fine.
My recommendation is 1. Try to follow the same steps I went through. Let me know where things break. 2. Try using Firefox or google chrome. My experience I had less troubles with them.
Also... visit this page: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/155/tn_15507.html . This will run a small test and tell you what version of flash you are running. To run Crayon, you need to have flash 10. Let me know what it says beside "Your Player Version:".
|Hi Mohamed, |
I've tried twice to reply to your suggestion on my profile page, but both times my reply has shown up at first- then next time, it's gone! I'm hoping this message will stay!!
My problem was that I could not get anything to load when I tried to use the crayon outliner on my photo.
As you suggested, I updated Adobe flash player on both my laptops.
The Vista laptop (at work, with broadband) was still the same- just a blank page when I click on one of my photos or on the crayon tool link. This is also the laptop that I've used for my last 2 posts which vanished.
My other laptop, with XP (used at home with dial-up internet), unfortunately crashed! (Not with the Adobe update, but when I tried to install another program...) so I haven't been able to try it out at all.
I'm hoping I can get it fixed next week, and I'll try again, as at least I got the upload bar, not just a blank page, even if nothing more happened.
I can't understand why I seem to be having so much trouble. I use(d) both laptops freely on other sites etc with no similar problems.
Oh well, unless you can suggest anything else, I'll give up for now and at least try to get my laptop fixed.
Thanks for your help!
|I tried updating flash - on my Vista computer at work, with broadband- still getting a blank page when I click on a photo (also when I use this at home)...|
- on my XP laptop, which I use at home with dial-up... didn't get to try it out because I also tried to install a family history program and my computer crashed!:( :(
Not having a good day...
still, maybe someone else can use my photos sometime. I do really want to try converting them to line drawings to use with kids for stories etc.
|Hi Catherine, yes... if you are using dialup you won't be able to use Crayon as the pictures are large, plus the component itself and that will take so long to open. The message that comes up when you are trying to close the page is not from Crayon, it is a little piece of HTML code that loads before Crayon.|
But that's interesting.... are you using IE on windows XP??? if you are using another OS and another browser please let me know and I will try to figure out why it is not working.
|Hi Mohamed, |
Thanks for your help- I tried installing the latest adobe flashplayer as you suggested, but still no luck- if I click on the link to Cruiser, or on either of my photos, I just get a blank page now. I do get a message re crayon when I navigate away from the blank page, so I guess it's supposed to be the tracing page.
At home on my other laptop I get the "loading" bar... which never loads more than 1/3 (left it for over an hour, thinking my slow dial-up internet at home may be the problem, but still no luck):(
I do hope I can get it to work somehow... any more ideas to try?
|Most likely you need to update flash. Try this, visit this page:|
Make sure that your flash is updated to the latest version (now flash 10). Let me know how it goes.
|That's great- I love to see my stuff used. I'm very excited at the idea of making clipart from photos- I have heaps of photos of animals, transport etc- but so far I just get a blank page when I try Crayon, or I get a part upload bar, then nothing :( |
|Hi Catherine, thanks for the butterfly upload. I looked at your website and you've got lots of very good activities. I will actually use some of them with my kids.|
