Hi, Gang!
It took me some searching to find Al's instructions in another thread, so I'm going to repost 'em here to make the info easily accessible. I have a question: I'm a Mac user and don't have the old right-click, left-click option(I'm also pretty computer ignorant). How can I follow Al's instructions? Any help is much appreciated! Mahalo.

From Al:

Step one. Go to Shutterfly.com. This is a free service. They are a good online photo service. One of our Moderators, Mig, works there. It is easy to download photos. here's how

  1. Setup an account. It's easy they only want your Email address.
  2. Download photos. Easy as pie. the step by step will show you how.
  3. Now that your pics are posted they will all have a unique web address.

The pictures you see on TC are a direct link to that web address

Step two. determining the web address

  1. Open your pic on Shutterfly.
  2. Use your mouse, "right click" your pic.
  3. A menu will open. Choose properties (left click).
  4. A properties box will open. there will be a web address (URL)
    to that specific pic.

Step three. posting

  1. Hit the post button on TC.
  2. Copy and paste your pictures web address.
  3. Type ![]( directly before the address No spaces. you must use the brackets
  4. Type ) directly after. No spaces.
  5. Hit submit.
  6. That's it.

Now read TC's FAQ, on posting pictures.

Here's an example

Web address

Sure - instead of all that right click left click stuff, to determine your URL to link to, just click & hold on the pic. An option to "open image in new window" should come up (assuming you are using Internet Explorer). The picture will show up on a new page all by itself, with the URL at the top.... The rest of the directions are the same...

Got it! Mahalo, Tangaroa.
