yahoo homepage(29 posts)
jack, it was something about some British webpage. Had to be in the UK, I guess, to know anything about it. I assume he found the solution. Maybe he'll let us know why he blanked the post.
I realised after the post it did not make sense it rambled a bit so i blanked it.
It was about the new yahoo home page (yahoo uk & ireland)
the bottom of page has words on top of word and it does not seem to be correct,
as it did not seem right to me so i was thinking that my settings might need changeing as it did not
seem to be looking right.
As you see i found it difficult to explain !!! :S
It makes perfect sense to me - I mean the problem description. Did you change any settings and is it solved? Did you try it with another browser? Maybe it's a specific browser setting. If you post the URL, we may check it on our systems (if it is accessible outside the UK and Ireland).
No, Copy/Paste for pictures does not work on the Forum - only for text. You have to upload your snip or screen print to Photobucket and paste the link. The snip or screen print in .png gives the best results. Here is the procedure:
1. Create your account at http://photobucket.com/ - real easy
2. Use the folder with your name on it or create a subfolder (recommended). You do that on the left side where it says "New Album" > Save
3.Go to "Upload Images and Videos", somewhere in the middle. Now click on "Choose Files". This will most likely bring up your "Pictures" folder (but you can select another folder). Double click on the file you want to upload. After a few seconds you will see it. Now single click on your picture. On top of the picture you will see “Resize”. The best size to pick is 640X480.
4. If you want to post this picture directly on the Forum, click on IMG Code (last link). If you only want to post the link to the picture, click on Direct link. Note: the thing will get yellow - then you got it in your clipboard (from where you Paste).
5. Now you can paste this into your HTG posting. If you chose IMG, the picture will only show up AFTER you posted. In the posting you will only see the link. If you chose "Direct link", it will just be a link.
I always use HTML code - never knew IMG worked
IMG works very well - proof are the about 100 pictures I posted on the Forum. I just recommend the 640x480 size because else they come out too big. That is something you don't have to worry about with HTML.
PS: Sorry Aleeve, I did not mean to beat you.
Sorry that last post sounded a bit strange (do it in photobucket) lol
but i am sure you new what i ment
will have to continue at the weekend as i have to leave now

when i will try and work it out
Sorry about not getting back sooner about doing it in photobucket had to go and see the in laws.

problem is only 2 seats.
but it is only a classic 2seater which is fine.
still not sure how to copy screen in photobucket but i will keep trying
Nice, you guys must be rich. What is this "copy screen" problem in photobucket. I don't understand. The "Copy Screen" I know you do on your system. There is usually a key for it on the top right of your keyboard - many times in combination with the Fn key bottom left. All it does is make a picture (same as the snipping tool) of your full screen.
use print screen, but to upload to photobucket, you need a picture file, not a temp. image in your clipboard
so go to paint or similar, copy your print screen into there (just press ctrl+v)
then save as a picture.
And upload to photobucket!
Oh - wow, well I also use snipping tool, part of Vista! (Home Premium and above)
EDIT: sorry whs, not trying to teach you to suck eggs or anything - just remembered you have vista yourself!
english, if you're seeing this, click back a page - I clarified how to show a print screen here!
I have Home Premium. Where is this snipping tool of which you speak? I've been using PrtScr-Ctr+V.
Whs, could you explain what or where FastStone Capture is, please:)
Hope you all had a great weekend!
Oma, you should be able to find it by searching Start. Just type in 'Snip'.
If it doesn't come up, it could be we have to enable it through Control Panel.
Post back regardless.
FastStone is a screen capture program whs always has said it is money well spent. I found the last free available version here,
I use version 5.3, which I believe was the last free version.
Scott pointed you to the right place. I have the latest version which was $20 for life. I am not sure whether there is a big difference since I never used the free version. I like the arrows and comment boxes which are handy to explain things. But it has a lot more functions - e.g. you can very easily resize a snip which is handy. See here for an example http://i260.photobucket.com/al.....TG3/fs.png
whs, I haven't looked at FastSone yet. I just found the built-in tool. Can I do the writing and pointing with the snipping tool that comes with Vista? I have to go out-of-state on business for a week, so if I don't answer you, it's because I have no internet access:( :( I'll be back next week!
Unfortunately you can only make snips with the native Vista snipping tool. For the text boxes and arrows you'll need a "commercial" tool. There are several on the market, but I only use FastStone Capture. It cost me $20 for life. But there is also an older free release available.
There is also a FastStone Image Viewer that has those capabilities too - only for pictures. I.e. you can annotate a picture with text. I like this picture viewer. It is real fancy and for free. Maybe you want to try that too.
A have a little write-up that I made for the Vista snipping tool that you can download from here . It also contains something about Paint that you can disregard in this context.
I think I also have one for FastStone Capture. But I have to look for it.
