How to use Photo Gadget
the EXE file?
Photo Gadget Pro is a shell extension so it does not have an
EXE file. There is just a DLL that integrates with Windows Explorer and
that is perfectly normal.
Ok, no EXE
file, but how do I do things with this program then?
Using Photo Gadget Pro is very easy. After successful installation all
you have to do is open a folder with pictures in Windows Explorer,
select pictures you want to edit, right click the selection and in the
context menu that appears you will see Photo Gadget Pro with all its
options. Check the screenshot:
I just did what you said and there is no Photo Gadget Pro in sight,
There are two possible reasons for this to happen. One is that your
selection of pictures to edit does not include pictures in any
supported file formats. Photo Gadget Pro currently works with
TIFF, PNG, PCX, TGA and JPG pictures. Pictures in other formats will be
skipped and if you select only such pictures (e.g. all selected
pictures are in GIF format) then Photo Gadget Pro option will not show
up in the context menu at all.
Another possibility is that the installation was not
successful. In that case restart the computer, repeat the installation
process and restart the computer again if requested to do so.
I'm just wondering what is the purpose of "Next operation" button on
the final screen.
That option allows you to continue working with the
selection of pictures you started with. Say you want to resize some
pictures and add a frame to all of them. You will first select those
pictures, right click the selection, choose Resize option from the
Photo Gadget Pro context menu, set new size and click Resize which
brings you to the final screen (see screenshot below). At this point if
you click Ok (or "Open destination folder") you will have to make new
selection of now resized pictures and go back to Photo Gadget Pro to
frame them. However, you can get the same result quicker if
you select the next operation you want (caption &
directly on the final screen of the previous one (resize) and click
