SE-DesktopConstructor and SE-ColorMaker

#1 Post by webfork » Mon May 02, 2016 11:09 am

From the developer of SE-Explorer ...

----

SE-DesktopConstructor
... automatically change background image, add desktop clock or calendar, fade desktop with color gradients and more.
Screenshots: http://se-soft.com/en/Products/DesktopC ... reenshots/ (just linking to them as they're fairly big)

Steps: Download portable version.

Status: Portable. Looks like all settings are saved to SE-DesktopConstructor.exe.Options ... Stealth? No: the program modifies the registry in order to change the desktop (HKU\current\Control Panel\Desktop).

http://se-soft.com/en/Products/DesktopConstructor/

----

SE-ColorMaker

Screenshot:

Image
... enables you to quickly and accurately find the right color by its characteristics, create and edit color palettes, use different color swatches for all occasions.
Steps: Download portable version.

Status: Portable and stealth. Similar to DesktopConstructor, saves to SE-ColorMaker.exe.Options
The only way to use this program reasonably is under the "advanced" options where some really nice color picking tools are packed

So these programs have a new webpage: http://se-soft.com/lang/en/

It's a real shame because I was starting to really get into the SE-ColorMaker tool, even in the face of a remarkable number of great freeware color tools here on the site.

Just in case the main website drops out, here's the softpedia link: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Internet/W ... aker.shtml

This app is no longer in development.
Website with Download-Link: http://se-soft.com/lang/en/

The portable version is stealth imo.

Features see screenshots below

- cannot place nor attach any jpg - images, don't know what's wrong with it, it keeps mixing up pics from my other topic I posted separately an hour ago, keeps losing the attachments .... here are links instead;

SE-ColorMaker has already been reviewed here and discussed here. This is a good program. Settings are saved in SE-ColorMaker.exe.Options file inside program folder.

Will take more care in the future.

@FileHandler
Don't be sorry, this happens to everyone, including me.
Of course the post should not be deleted.

Thanks for being lenient about this.
However, the third attached screenshot does not even belong here. It belongs to ColorBug. I cannot delete it. When I edit my posting, I only see this line at the bottom

Code: Select all

[attachment=2]ColorMaker_004.jpg[/attachment]
and the attachment section at the bottom also lists this jpg only. Somehow or other it must have been taken over from the ColorBug thread.

Maybe you don't even see 3 screenshots? I already cleared all my browser caches, but to no avail. Something is wrong either with my system or with the forum attachments. No hurt feelings if you just go ahead and delete these threads. Also, I don't know how long the linked screenshots will stay up on that server.

Whatever you want to post about is fine, even if you accidentally go over territory that's been covered before. :) We're glad to have you. Color tools like the ones you've highlighted have been amazingly useful over the years. Please don't quit talking about programs you like, even if they're not portable. I can sort out whatever "correct forum" thing later.

I'll take a look at the post you're having issues with.

Actually if there's a problem with the forum, I'm even *more* inclined to keep the thread around to help find an issue. We went through a conversion a few months ago and are still shaking out the bugs.

The 3 screenshots show up just fine on my side.

@webfork
Thank you. However, now it is the second screenshot that does not belong into this thread. When you hover the mouse over the jpg, the name indicates whether a particular screenshot belongs to ColorMaker vs ColorBug.

If you are experiencing problems with ImgBB you may try imgbox- with registered account images can be organized into galleries.
By the way the forum allows only 3 attachments per post. When you edit your post don't you see "Delete file" button? It deletes the already attached files.

Just for one image only: ColorMaker_004.jpg. No other images are listed, Although the post still shows 3 pics, one of them belonging to ColorBug, not ColorMaker.

@FileHandler

First, I had a look at your ImgBB links, they are embeddable. To get the actual address of the image file depending on your browser right-click on the image and either choose "View Image" command or "Copy image address" command or "Open image in new tab" command and then copy the URL. Example- the image link of https://ibb.co/ksinqd is https://image.ibb.co/ifXQbJ/Color_Maker_001.jpg. Once you have the actual address of the image file just paste it, select it and use "Insert image" button from the toolbar. This is enough for embedding images.

About the attachments- I do not know what to say. Perhaps you may ask the administrators. You may just use "Delete file" button and embed the images using direct image links plus "Insert image" command from the toolbar.

@smaragdus
Thanks for the instructions. Embedding the first pic seemed to work flawless. Then I went ahead and deleted the attachment(s) - it lists only one, even though I get to see 3 in the rendered view. Pressing the Delete-button sent the Status wheel spinning. When I checked back 20 min later, it was still spinning and spinning....
Something is definitely wrong here, either on my side (latest Firefox + Win7) or with my forum account/ attachment settings.

I am busy these days. Will check back next weekend.

Yeah that's a concern. I'll drop a line to Andrew.

Please tell me whether my line of testing is correct.

I replied to this topic, added 3 images as attachment, placed all of them inline, then click [Submit]. All the images seem to appear correctly.

However, when I tried to edit my post, only the first attachment is present, and when I made minor mods to the post and click [Submit], it says the other 2 attachments are missing.

Is that a good description of the problem at hand?

[EDIT] This appears to be a known bug, which I have fixed.
