Could you possibly repeat that ?

KittyB said...

I can't right click cos I'm on a Mac, but I'm going to have a go - will report back for Mac users!

KittyB said...

Yup, works a treat - thank you very much.

For Mac users, click on the pic you want to use, press apple/function key (that's the one next to space bar if you're as dim as me) and X, move cursor to where you want pic, then apple/function and V. Clear as mud?

I be everyone else would know this anyway and are now thinking - yes dear, go back to your knitting now.

Thank you! I like having my own semi-private computer guru!

Frances said...

Merci bien. I haven't got time now to even try more creative bits on this site, but do want to say how truly civilized you are to offer the help. It's terrific how much talent is available here, and how generous that talent is.
Bon nuit.

Yes I'm with KittyB there, also find you can just click and drag within the posting box.

Grr, nothing happens when I right-click or when I try to drag.... and I'm on a pc.... Maybe it's my laptop being silly - shall try on the big guy.. Beautifully clear though Jacko....theory makes perfect sense... j
