    Hi there, can anyone please teach me how I can send photo over the net? I am running Windows XP Pro. I have installed MS Dig Image, standard 2006 Library & MS Dig Image, standard 2006 editor. I am using Mozilla Firefox as a server. Please tell me one step at a time. (computer for dumbies lol) I did look in the HP manuel, which told me not a thing. I also checked this forum. Know good.o_O

    if u dont already have a digital version of the photo, youll need to scan them and save them to ur hard disk.

    most dating or socializing sites should have a way of uploading photos, so u just need to browse to the photo and click "ok" or "upload".

    First, Mozilla Firefox is a Browser not a server, that being cleared up...
    Firefox has extensions that can make uploading images easier to Image Host sites where you can upload images for use on the internet, they can be found at:{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}

    Say you have a "real" photo you want saved on a PC hard drive,
    First, you need to scan the photo with a digital scanner, to create the digital image to save on disk.
    If it's already on a digital device, like a digital camera, digital picture phone or digital Video camera this makes it easier. use the device's supplied cable to connect to your USB input on your PC, and the (usually) supplied software (such as Kodak Easyshare) to exchange data.
    Some if not most devices with this USB adapter cable, will auto detect the device as a External Drive, which can be opened just like a regular hard drive in your "My Computer" window, complete with a "new" Drive Letter.
    Simply click on the "new" device, and open files and copy/paste or simply "send to..." where you want them saved, ie: My Pictures folder, and what type of file, ie: jpeg, bmp, etc.
    Now, some sites will let you transfer images directly from your PC to their server, ie: browsing to the selected folder on your PC, some need a URL address where you already uploaded a image to a server for Hosting.
    Using a Host also lets you show images in forums and/or emails.

    Some free places to upload images are:

    There are others, just use Google to find the one that suits you best, some have limitations on amount uploaded, some don't, some resize automatically, if file size is large, some leave same size as orig.
    If the place you want to show an image needs a URL link to already uploaded image, there are choices after you upload your image.
    After you upload image, it should show you mulitple links for same image:
    Example from Photobucket:
    Simply right click box containing link, select all, copy, then paste where you want it.
    The URL link will show as the actual link when pasted into a forum or email, etc. (If you use the URL link in forums, it shows the link, not picture)
    The Tag link, is the actual HTML tag for the image.
    The Img link, is the actual image to be shown as above example.

    There will be other links available from other Image Hosts, that will show a thumbnail of the image, and when clicked, it will open new browser window or tab, with image shown full sized.

    Like this Imageshack example:

    Using an Image host also keeps uploaded images on their server, which can be retreived if ever your Hard Drive crashes, and you lose you pictures you had saved.
    Hope this gets you going, and good luck with your searches.

    Hi Condoneone!

    you sure need to have a digital camera or scan your photos before like WSFuser recommended you in order to be able to upload them online. If you have just a few picures to upload you can use Image Shack or Photobucket as MojoWorkin advised you. For my part, I use Image Shack for pictures I send to forums, and use Flickr if I want to share many pictures with my family and friends moreover, you have the possiblity to create your own photo album there. People will be able to look at your photos one by one or select the slide-show feature.

    Flickr is considered one of the best online photo management and sharing application on the net to upload your pictures....I like it a lot! The subscription is free and it is very easy to upload your pictures once you've subscribed to flickr. You can upload up to 20 MB a month with the free account (with the paid service you can upload up to 2 GB a month).

    Once you registered, you can upload your picture or photographs that you want to display.

    Here are the main steps that you need to know.
    ...see image below, click on it to increase the size.

    1. You go to Flickr at this address in order to sign up.

    2. You sign up to open your account and you fill a form....make sure you keep your logon info safe.

    3. Once you have your new account you can start upload your pictures from your computer, you can upload up top 6 pictures each time you upload. Click upload (blue button) once you're done uploading your pictures. If you want to upload more, you can. Just redo the same process, retrieve the pictures or photos from your computer and click on the blue upload button again when you done.

    4. Once your picture(s) is/are uploaded, you can click on each of them for a larger view.

    To share your pictures or photos with your friends, just copy the address of your photo album in your address bar, paste the address in an email and then simply send it to your friend (s) so that they will be able to see your pictures by pasting the address in their browser.

    Edit: when you go back to flickr, you will just have to click on ''Sign in'' instead of
    "Sign up'' and give your flickr account info such as your Yahoo Id and your password.

    Hope this help!

    Hi Uguel707, Thank for the info on flickr. I downloaded the program, installed it. I like it alot. I like the drag & drop. Make things very easy. My next question is now how do I gain access to those photo at flickr? When I click on the short cut I get the drag & drop window. There is place to click on to take me to photo already on file.
