Sheesh, Den! You just take another picture with your hand pointing to it.

(Useless advice from another illiterate.)

Just right click on the picture and select Open with and use Paint. In there you can black things out, make lines and arrows, then save it as a jpeg.

You can also take a pic or screenshot of your computer screen, hit the "PrtScn" or Printscreen key. Open up paint and do an "Edit" and "Paste". Again save it as a jpeg. Paint will always try to save as a bmp, and the files are much larger.

Yes, Edit the pic before it is attached to a forum post or posted on photobucket. Flickr etc and linked.

On the video you posted the other day, I got it to play, but I had to go to Flickr if I remember correctly.

So far ,only Mike's suggestion sounds feasable.Everything else I've tried does not work.Being computor illiterate really frustrates me! :? Not having spellcheck on this forum also makes me look dumber [but what the heck-I am a truck driver!!!] Den

:lol:

I use Firefox browser instead of explorer, it has a built in spellchecker. Sure helps me.

Getting back to the pic thing. Just open the pic with "Paint" and then there is an icon that has a diagonal line, that is for drawing lines. Just left click right on the picture and drag a line. Then save it as whatever name and JPEG file type. There are some other icons there too for spray painting etc.
