The question is-----how does one capture, download pics, and then upload and post into one's blog. What started this was my exclaiming with some AWE (for I was impressed) Demeur's ability to capture Wayne's Gravatar pic and Post it on her blog post? (Pheeeenomenal!!)
Demeur, bless her heart posted the steps she took to do the above, hoping this would answer my question---alas and alack, she uses the Apple system, where I am on Windows Vista.---no sooner had I read her post but I was also able to read a comment input to her post from all blogger's good friend, Wayne---who volunteered how to do it using windows----life is good , so I set off on the task of capturing Wayne's gravatar Pic with the idea to post it in MY blog post as Demeur had done, and thereby show the world that this old blogger was "with-it!!"-----yeahhh that WAS the game plan.
Okay, so I whip back to and earlier post , on which Wayne had made a comment and left this gravatar pic. I expertly right click on it, and then click "Save as---" up pops the window asking me what file do I want to save it to , I select a File I call Gary's stuff (not to be confused with the LP's stuff), click save, and I then of course double check to make sure I have indeed captured and saved the gravatar in question to the selected file, sure enough its there, and ---WHAM,----PROBLEM, my computer is unable to open the pic in question----where am I going wrong----is it the people I am hanging with?-----(sigh) You can not imagine how humiliating this is for this old dude to confess he is flummoxed with the simple task of downloading pics to his computer for use in on line postings------do I need a new computer or what? (definitely going for another beer here---will be my third since noon---we are still cool here---frustrated as hell, but otherwise cool------it does occur to me that perhaps, Demeur and Wayne are working in tandem, giving the old dude a dust up, getting revenge for the Meme-----?? good one guys, you really had me going there----but seriously----whats the secret?
