Default I think I'm catching on

I borrowed my moms digital camera today for my sons lacrosse game and I didn't need an installation CD or software this and that. According to the instructions all I needed to do was plug the camera into the computer into the PC and away we go. I got as far as putting a picture I took as my desktop background now my question is how do I get to the point to where I can send pics and all that? Geez I'm starting to feel all high-tech now.

More in terms of putting pics on this site. If you can tell me all ways of sending pics that would be very cool. I'm really computer bone headed.

there is a a lot more to these goofy boxes than i know. timbergoast you need to start an account at a site like photobucket.com. its free. then it will ask you what pics you want and will automatically take you to your pics on your pc. upload the pics you want to share. once you have created an album with photobucket, you can share your pics with the world by clicking on the img button under the pic. its a cut and paste type thing. start your post, get your pic, right click it into your post, and thats pretty much it. as i think joel found out its a good place to keep pics cause you can lose them if your pc pukes on you. good luck and its not that hard to do.

OK I have an account on Photobucket.com and have 1 picture that I'd like to send to this site. Am I doing the e-mail pic option or something else, and am I sending it to Deerhuntersclub.com? Please pardon my ignorance.

To send a pic by email you can either

1) Start with a new email message opened and click to "insert a file" you can then browse for the file picture file you want to send. double click on the picture and it should load to the email. Hint: I like my picture files arranged as "thumbnails" it's easier to find the one you want. also when you down load your pics the PC will ask where? Create new folders in "My pictures" for different activities.

2) Find a picture you want to send and right click on it and look for "Send to" the computer should open an email with the file already attached.

It's not as hard as it seems when you first start. It won't take long and you will have it down pat.
