My old computer worked like that, I just pressed the button and had an image, only one at a time, but still had it (just changed the title and could take another one)
On this computer you have to transfer (copy and paste) it to Paint then save.

(Do I sound like I know what I am talking about???? :lol: :lol: :lol: Do it so seldom usually have to ask the teen)

You do know, because guess what, I tried copying in paint ... and I saw your post there... it works... I can't believe I never knew this and all this time I thought it just didn't do anything !!
Thanks Del you're a genius :clap: :text-goodpost:

I do this procedure a lot. ;)

yes I know, but it was an important detail for an incompetent like me, I just thought you meant that you print it, then copy it elsewhere so you could print another one :oops: you were just too "technical" for me :oops:

Does anyone know if it is possible to download a video that's not on youtube?
This is what I'm talking about. In this page

as you open it a video starts, 30minutes or so, and I wanted that video but I don't know if that's possible.. what do you think?

Did you try looking for it on youtube?

I have downloadhelper as a firefox add-on and it'll usually give me a signal if a video or audio on the page can be downloaded, but i get nothing from that. it looks like it could be a streaming video (where as YT and others download the vid onto your comp THEN plays whats been (or being) downloaded). there are programs that will record live streams, but offhand i don't know which ones.

couldn't find it on youtube, that's the first thing I checked. I finally found it there, but I can't take it from there.
Thanks anyway :)

If you found it on YT, look for the Firefox plug-in Download Helper, like raptorn suggested. You'll then be able to download it.

A very long time and no see for this thread. I didn't want to start a new thread for my question so I thought I would briefly resurrect this one in the hope someone technically gifted with website design might be able to help.

I'm about to go through all my pics and add keywords to them to assist with searches in Search Engines. Are these keywords dependant on whether the caps lock is on or not? (eg would typing "richmond park" or "Richmond Park" or "Richmond park" make any difference to Google?)

I wouldn't think so, Penners. If you type just using lower case or all caps, Google seems to understand. I just tried RICHMOND PARK compared to richmond park and got the same results. :)

I agree with Tony.
You'd probably have to specify in a search engine if you wanted a case sensitive search.

Many thanks. That's what I thought to be honest but I wanted to double check as I am still a complete technoklutz. I just wanted to make sure I hadn't missed anything. :D

Keywords are not case sensitive but you may want to run words together as alternate options so do richmond park and richmondpark some tags are not read correctly by various image collation searches if they contain spaces.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

The search engine bots are regularly on this site. It's the reason this is the #1 hit for Terry Pratchett.

I hadn't thought of that! :D (Thanks, I will remember to do that and amend my other keywords.)
