I've been putting together a website for my employer even though my computer skills at this point are equal to those of a five year old. What I've been doing is primitive but effective. (Also cheap, I work cheap.)
I have two problems:
I have a set of JPEG files on my work computer which are essentially photos taken of the firm's catalog pages.
I open a page, adjust it's position on the screen, do a Print/Screen capture.
(The pages show as many as four products per page. I need them one at a time.)
I open Paint and edit the visual for the information/pictures I want, save that as a .jpeg and then upload it to the website editing um, website.
That's fine, except then I have to find some way of covering the Chinese with an English translation. (Most of the masking has to been done on the technical pages showing rotation speeds, amps/volts/watts and the like.)
I have been unable to devise a simple way of re-making the data bars with the appropriate numbers. (Inserting a TEXT BOX works sorta...some of them shift for some unknown reason.) How can I create Text that I can save as a .jpeg?
Is there a better editor to use than Paint?
Maybe Picasa? If I could figure out how to get the JPEG file into Picasa.
Problem Two is that the PAINT I have at home, is an older version. Is there anyway to upgrade it or should I just be looking for an editor I can put (cheaply) on both my office and home computers??
Here's the website : http://www.dunliusa.com/Fans---Blowers.html
Yes. I know. It's a mess, but it's better than what we had.
