    Quote:Here I thought I was being original, looks like somebody already did a screen clip. I also noticed when posting that clip when you click on the IMG line on the Photobucket web page, it automatically copies. You don't have to right click and choose copy...

    Ok so i clicked the picture in PB and a yellow box next to it said copied and the img line turns blue. Then what??? You guys I really am not computer savvy and pretty much need you to hold my hand/spell it out/ walk me thru it. I know youre probably thinking "what a dummy" but look at the title to the thread.

    You say copy and paste- well I guess I have it copied when I click it so how do I Paste it. Do I paste it from PB or BYC or does copy mean its in my computer just a mouse click away?[​IMG][/img]

    There, I juste right clicked and hit PASTE then hit the img above. Is that right? I guess I'll see in a minute

    Looks like you got it. Yes, once it is "copied", the text that you copied is just stored someplace in your computer's memory. To access it you put the blinking cursor where you want the text to go, right click, and choose paste. It is inserted right where you want it...

    Wow, I did it. I am Shocked. This thing has no motor, and you cant put fuel in it, but I got it to work. Thank you for babysitting. Any way that is my "jungle fowl" and his(probably) name is Funky Chicken. Not a good pic I know, but just a try. Now I know how, and I'll get some good pics for you guys.

    now my next problem- I copied three pictures but when I paste, it does the same one. Do I just have to keep going back and forth or how do you get multiple pics in one post?

    You can only copy one thing at a time. If you copy something new it replaces what was previously copied. You can go back and forth or you can put a checkmark in the little box next to the photos you want and then click the button at the bottom that says Generate HTML and IMG Code. You can then copy the IMG Codes all in one shot.
