List files and paths in a directory tree (including files in subdirectories)


Recently I needed to list all of the files in a large directory tree. Each line needed to include the full path to the file, and I didn't want to include the directories themselves in the list, just the files. Here's how I did it:

dir /a:-d /s /b > files.txt

The dir command, as you probably know, lists files in the current directory, but the default settings are not useful here - it does not include file path, for one thing.

The 2.6 version of OpenWRT Kamikaze is not yet compatible with WDS.

Remove redeye when the automatic tools don't work


Sometimes, a photo editing program (I use Corel's Paint Shop Pro) can not remove all of the red around a person's eye with the built-in red eye remover tool. You may end up with a red ring around the pupil of the eye. Here's how to remove all of the red eye.

Use the automatic tool to remove what you can. Then, switch to the pain brush tool, and set the blend mode to color. Use the eyedropper tool on the good, dark part of the eye, then use a small brush size and paint around the edge of the eye. Your eyes are beautiful! :)
