    Hi again,

    Have been using the W10 Photos apps for some time as it gives a nice large , easy to view preview section compared to my old Pentax ACDSee program.

    However, just started Photos up and was greeted by this message and on Declining we got the following.

    To me it sounds like they are wanting permission to use and share all my pics ??

    Makes me wonder if they have already been doing that ?

    As always if I do not fully understand what they are on about, so will not risk using it again.

    Our pics are just on the HDD, they are not up on the cloud or any social media etc.

    Any suggestion of a simple easy to use photo importer / viewer that does not copy our images and respects our privacy ?

    It is a facial recognition setting. If you share a picture somewhere which uses FRD the file will contain facial recognition data hence why you are 'representing consent'.

    Nothing will happen if you turn it off which I do.

      I get naffed off with Windows. I had "Excel Office" on my previous HP laptop with Windows XP but not on this Lenovo with Windows 10. Anything I have in the memory on Excel I can look at, but to alter anything on these spreadsheets, it won't permit me to without buying it again. I should cocoa!

      So I avoid Windows stuff where I can. I use Apache "Open Office" which does much the same job as Excel. The spreadsheets are exactly the same.

      I use the programme that came with my Panasonic Lumix camera for photos. If I want to store any that I can link to messageboards that don't upload photos in any other way, I use IMGGB a free programme where you've got control over who can see your photos.

      Windows 10 doesn't recognise my old six colourway Epson Stylus Photo RX620 scanner/printer, so I have to use Windows. But where I could turn old transparancies into contact prints or save the "print" to memory and where if I put two contact prints on the scanner, it would copy just the photos and not the rest of the plate, it won't now.

      I don't use Internet Explorer I use Firefox, but I use DuckDuckGo as the search engine.

        @BellaBlue - Many thanks, did not have a clue about FRD and photos, getting too old to keep up with this game ! :sad:

            Reminds me of an incident at work decades ago.

            I walked into the general office of the superstore I was managing. I asked one of the female clerks if she had the figures I wanted. She said she had and produced a piece of paper with a column of half a dozen one or two digit numbers.
            I said, "What's the total?"

            She started to add them up on a calculator.
            I'd added them up in my head before she'd finished and as I was facing her across her desk, they'd been upside down for me.

            When I was a lad!

            I was an articled clerk in an accountancy firm in Oxford Street and one of the horrible jobs we were given as clerks was to add up all the sales ledgers for Bourne and Hollingsworth (remember them?). Every individual sale was recorded in a book (including farthings, in those days) and I was told there were up to half a million entries in the ledgers. Each page had 75 rows and we were supposed to add up a page per minute! :rolleyespink:

            Before that I worked in a Deli and we had to add up everything in our heads as we got each item for the customer.

            A bit like 'Open All Hours' but without a till that tried to bite you. :heehee:

            In the early days, before scanning, the cashiers in Quick Save stores, (admittedly they didn't have a big range when they first started trading) were expected to remember the price of every product they sold, as they were never priced up.

            Digressing, but still abour numbers.

            My first job, on leaving school was working in an insurance company's office. They'd taken on a dozen of we school leavers. The existing staff, many of them middle aged women tended to look down on us. But we used to have a laugh, saying things to each other in their earshot, like,
            "Have you got the file for the new policy for a Mr Jones?"

            "Do you mean 1,345,291 Jones?"


            "No it 's a different Jones, the one I want is 1,345 821."

            Of course we didn't really remember the policy numbers, we just made them up, but they never knew. We were just kids having a laugh.
            It wasn't a job we took too seriously. We were quite well paid. In fact we found out, better than some, who were a bit older than us and had been employed for a few years. I guess it was market forces. I had six jobs for which I'd been for an interview and only accepted this one as it was the best paid.
            We had a scam. One of our number, a girl of seventeen, was in charge of paying the restaurants from the firm's own luncheon vouchers, redeemed. Back in the late fifties, many firms gave their staff luncheon vouchers, but the maximum allowed by the Inland Revenue before it became a "benefits in kind," taxable perk, was 3/- (15p). You could get a lunch, a sweet and a cup of tea for that.
            The restaurants, caf├ęs and coffee bars had to send them in at the end of each month with an invoice. She then authorised the cheque and destroyed the cancelled luncheon vouchers. But some restaurants didn't bother to cancel them, so they got "recycled" she dished them out to a few of us, but only enough for one or two a week each. No one ever caught on.


            Another memory. As the office was in Regent Street, Soho coffee bars were just around the corner. All the fashionable ones used those clear Arcoroc coffee cups and saucers, like these. If you dropped one it would explode in fragments.

            artex.jpg

            A gang of us would go into Soho to a coffee bar after work sometimes. The girls had these fashionable raffia bags that were just a just a flat circle of the material with two handles. Now and then we'd drop a used cup and saucer into the most innocent looking girl's bag. These all ended up as our personal cup and saucer for work tea breaks (the cups the firm supplied were rubbish). Once, when the tea/coffee trolley came round, one of the girls went up to the trolley to bring two coffees back, one for her, (in her Artex cup and saucer ) and one for her boss in a bog standard mug.

            He said to her. "Why can't I get my coffee in one of those nice cups and saucers?"

            "You can, but you'd have to pinch it from a coffee bar first."

            She said later, "The look on his face....."
