If you are on a Mac, find something you want to take a picture of, then press "Shift+Apple+4" You will see your mouse pointer turn into crosshairs. Click on the upper-left corner of what you want to take a picture of, and drag a box around it. You will hear a camera sound and the screenshot will appear on your desktop as "Picture 1" . Then, just upload it to WI, with the instructions below, as it is already in .PNG format!

If you have images that are already in .GIF, .JPG or .PNG format, you can upload them directly to WI so that they will appear at the bottom of your message with the "zoom" function. In order to do this, just make your reply or new topic, and below the typing window, click "manage attachments" and upload your images!

I prefer, instead, to press these three keys simultaneously -- open-apple, shift and 3. Using the combination with the '3' key is much better because it takes a picture of the entire screen (clear with no resizing distortions) and also allows more pictures to be taken immediately. This is something that the (snicker, laugh) IBM-type computer owners can not do. No need to load the image(s) into a photo application either (another IBM flaw) -- they are ready to use from your desktop.

Posting the pics directly from your computer is possible, but then there is a size limit. So, I'd suggest getting a free Photobucket account to host your pictures there. Then it is just necessary, when posting a pic, to click on the little "mountain image" icon and copy in the URL of your pic.

OK, meaning of the acronyms are as follows.

JPG= Joint Photographic Group
GIF = Graphic Interchange Format
PNG = Portable Network Graphics

JPG is the oldest of the picture formats. It provides clear graphics but with a large file size.

PNP is a newer version of GIF and is, in my opinion, the preferred picture format now because it gives reasonably clear pictures at a much smaller file size than the others.

Accually, I have a mac so I know this. You press apple,shift and 4 at the same time. Then it will turn into a cross. Put your mouse over the window you want to take a picture of and hit the space bar. It will take a pic of the whole screen automaticly. It will even take a pic of your book marks and web address where you type in the website. If you don't want something in your pic you can always crop it.
