  • Does Anyone Use a MAC?

    Warthog

    I printed out your post of 01/01/04 "How to Post Pix On A Forum. Followed the steps best I could, however, in following the instructions some of the boxes do not have the same wording you quote in the instructions. Just can't get the pix to post. I believe that the difference is inherent in the MAC OS as opposed to Windows OS. As an example #3 [view image] is not in the drop down menu nor is #5 [properties].

    I use a G4 MAC for doing my pubishing layouts using QuarkXPress, Photoshop and Illustrator. I also post our entire paper on our website after saving each page as a PDF converting it to JPEG, so I believe I'm computer literate. But evidently not enough to solve this problem!

    If you or any one else can give me a clue it will be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Capt. Vic

        I use a MERC regularly. Is that close enough? []

        You need to talk to Megabyte. He uses one of "those things". I've forwarded him the link to this thread. []

          Not a problem Capt Vic. In fact, if you direct me to Bobbys instructions, I'll modify them for anyone else using a Mac.

          If you'd rather do this off the forum, drop me an email at: [email protected] and I'll hook you up. It might be easier to do it that way.

          Let me know what version of the OS you're using (OS9 or OS X) because its a bit different for each. I'm using the latest version of OS X on all of my machines, if it helps.

          Here is an example...

              SAILOR -- No if you were around in the '60s & '70s that LORAN thingy was known as LORAN A and was it a bear to get a FIX with it, either with in a mile or maybe some place in the Pacific or Indian oceans. And that's no HE HE!

              GW204 -- HE HE! That Merc won't get it done in this case.

              WARTHOG5 -- Thanks for the use of the HE HE! You did a great job on the original thread and the latest post on the use of Photobucket.. Some how my fat fingers or fat head can't get it done. I figured it had to be the MAC. I have a couple of PCs but I'm on the MAC 95% of the time so all of my Classic Mako and all my imaging is done on the MAC. It would be a pain to have to move all the photo downloads to the PC. I hope MEGABYTE can solve my problem.

              MEGABYTE -- Sure could use the help -- I'm on a G4 OS 9.22 / images on Photobucket previously processed on Photoshop for size (640X480). Bobby's recent post "Posting pix with Photobucket.com" is a couple spaces above this one. i also recently posted "Happy Holidays" above using Photobucket. I got the text but no image. Bobby's original post was 01/01/04 on this forum. (See his post above)

              Just a quick review of my process:

              1) Open Photobucket

              2) Locate image

              3) Highlight 3rd box down. Type Cmd C (copy)

              4) Begin a new post on this site- do the text - click on the place image box (4th from the right) then place the cursor [ ]between[ ] then type Cmd V (paste)

              5) post new topic.

              NO image but the text shows.

              I'll appreciate any suggestions.

              Thanks to ALL,

              Vic

                  Glad to hear that it worked Capt Vic!

                  I don't use 'Classic' (OS9) anymore, so I was going to wait until I got home to give it a try. OS X will allow you run OS9 as a Unix process.

                  Bobby, When I get home, I'll take your instructions and modify them for users running both Mac OS9 and OS X, then I'll repost.

                  Stand by...

                      Megabyte If you will send those instructions to Ringleader he can put them in a "Sticky" under that thread.

                          Thats so friggin funny. Brother Cyclops is gonna get a good laugh out of that, but he lives for MAC's. Hes got a whole friggin room full of them at his house and none of the friggin things ever work! They are good for doing graphics work... if you know what you are doing...[:x)]

                            They're also good for many other things -- even easier to use tha a PC. Grew up on a PC and gave MACs the HE HE until I used one. Been doing that for about 10 years and now you can't tear me away.
