You need to find someone who is more familiar with Yahoo.  I've no doubt it can be done, but...  Put it up as question in it's own right.

I'm quite a Luddite except in a few small areas of computing which I've hammered into my old-fashioned typewriter and paper notes skull.

I got the message.  You will get an answer, but at the moment it's a long way down today's list.  I haven't even had breakfast yet ;-)  Playing silly beggars for now until my brain recovers from being up until nearly 5 Am finishing off Freddy Forsyths The Afghan

No bother mate. That's a good idea, I'll post in Writers Questions, there's bound to be a geek knowledgeable kind person there who'll be able to help me.

Took this one a couple of years back when I was drivin for the MOD. Had noticed this fence at the top of the hill and it was a nice silhouette-type pic. So I went back the next evening and waited . . . and waited, till finally the light was just right and I took this amazing(to me) photo. Like I said, I love taking photos of light, water, sunrises and sunsets and everything else in between. Cheers

Because of a traffic detour due to an accident, I ended up passing this place. I parked my wagon and walked a little way up, but kept looking back to make sure the vehicle was ok. That's when in the distance of a few hundred yards I spied a Yellow-peril making her way towards the wagon! I turned took three shots(bracketing) and scarpered back down to me ride, and buggered orf! Hope you like this one. It's Glastonbury Tor.

Bri, try to write click on the photo and go down to save image as and a box pops up with choices where to post them. Even if you put them all on your desktop and work a folder out later, you will have them mate.

I'm sure yahoo will let you do that

Love that fence silhouette one :D

Another one - I seem to have a fascination with the natural world when it comes to taking photos. We were out on a walk through another provincial park last year when we came across this Screech Owl hiding in the tree. If I didn't have my zoom lens, I wouldn't have seen him at all (the tour guide must have super eagle eyesight or been tipped off that it was there :P ).

And . . . just because I can . . . another one. I was on a flight from Halifax to Toronto a few years ago, and noticed this view out my window. How could I not capture it? I thought it looked rather ethereal. I've always been captivated by the 'above the clouds' view :D (Just not when I was hooked up to a parachute with an instructor on my back  ::) ).

DS, your cloud picture triggered a rather vivid flashback.  A long Time ago, maybe forty years or so, I flew into Glasgow one evening aboard a British Airways Tri-Star.  At thirty thousand feet the view from the window was very similar to your picture.  Plenty of light and a sun thinking of going down but still well above the horizon.

Then we dropped down through the cloud and it was like passing through a trap door.  Under the cloud it night-time, with street lights on and the beams of car headlights whizzing merrily along.  

Such a change in a matter of minutes.  Almost fairytale stuff.

Brian, really like your fence shot.

=====

Here's a picture of a Junior horseman, showing off his 'hoss' at a horse fair in Hampshire.  The Gyspies take over the village for most of the day and ride their horses up and down the sanded section of street to let prospective buyers see them in action.  The older teenagers who are there looking for a possible wife as well sometimes get a bit carried away and ride a little recklessly.  But the older hands calm them down if they're likely to come to the attention of the RSPCA inspectors.

This one was too young to be wife-hunting, but a second or so later he clipped the barrier at the end of the track where I was stood taking pictures and knocked me flying.  The horse skidded on the sand during the tight turn.  Sometimes 'get in close and fill the frame' has unexpected consequences.

If you look at his face you can see he knows he's cutting the turn a bit late.

When you try for 'action shots', when you have to 'ambush a specific moment, sometimes you lose detail but capture the 'spirit' of the moment.

My nephew, a grown man of thirty-odd, loves jumping over fires.  This particular one was in a forty gallon drum with some of the wood sticking up about a foot above the rim.

Surely there are better ways to warm the kibbles up?

Probably.  But a quick belt of adrenaline isn't a bad place to start ;-)
